I thought I might break the silence over here and start blogging again. Ravelry is fun but, sometimes I do not find the right place there to express myself.
So what have I been up to the last two years since I blogged? Well, I got unemployed, studied Finnish for 1,5 years and have now a temporary job.
I have had some new fiber related happenings too. The latest thing is the completion of Purple Cotton Light. It is knitted after the pattern "Still Light" by Veera Välimäki. I love it!
Somehow I have been lured to start ordering yarn from Wollmeise! To order from there is like a sport, you have to prepare by knowing what colorways you prefer, log in a certain time a week when the stock is updated and then fast go for what you want. If you hesitate you will loose the game and no yarn will come to you with the postman. For most colorways there are no pictures of the yarn so you just have to take a chance. By browsing through other peoples stashes at Ravelry you will however know approximately how a colorway will look in real life. These skeins has been purchased in the intention to become a winter version of Still Light. The Colorway is Ballerina and it is Wollmeises 100% Superwash Merino yarn.
I played around some with some yarn in my stash and all of a sudden i had new a hat for the winter season!
It needs some decorations for a more finished look but it is warm as it is. I can not decide what I should decorate it with...
So that was something for the top, something for the body, so let's have a little something for the feet too. Lime green socks made of Novita Nalle yarn that has been soaked in Aloe Vera. This seasons only socks so far. My old socks start to get worn out so I do need to knit more socks but I just do not seem to have the inspiration for it.
