Handmade twice-woven rug

Binding the ends of the woven rug

I don't think if I mentioned it earlier here but I've been going to a weaving course for a few months now. It's really cool as it is very close to where I live (unlike many things, as I now live far on the countryside) and I basically get to learn weaving and weave with my neighbours, which is fun and helps me "re-integrate" into this village also! Until now I've woven a bag (well, the fabric for a bag) and this little rug I am showing you now.

I'm participating in the 2017 Helmet reading challenge

Books I'd like to read in 2017

Happy 2017! I don't know about you, but I don't make resolutions, I make plans for the next year, and one of those plans this year is to participate in and finish the so-called Helmet Reading Challenge. And no, it doesn't mean a helmet like the thing you wear while biking, it's the name of all the libraries of Helsinki and it also means pearls in Finnish!

Handdyed socks - last FO of 2016

Handdyed socks

Happy new year! I hope you had a good Christmas season and are read for the new year? I've been working hard on my Shining life workbooks and I am very ready for the new year! It is a year of big jubilees, like Finland's 100 years of independence celebration year plus several round birthdays in my family and I have high hopes for the year. I will be posting some plans here, too, I am sure.

Sauna Socks are finished!

Sauna socks made with orange Novita Nalle yarn

Amazing, there is an FO ready in my house!

 

Celebration reasons:
1) I made a pair of socks, after such a pause, and they have a pattern even!
2) I am blogging about them!

 

It may not seem like much to anyone, but it does symbolize something to me, this FO and the fact that I am blogging about them. It means knitting is not completely lost to me, nor is knit blogging. I still want to create with my hands and share what I've done with like-minded people and maybe even be of some help for someone.
