Life of Worsted Knitt - travels, plans, gardening...

A quick hi and a hat

Lila hat

Oh my, I've had a long pause in blogging! There are two reasons for that mainly

 

1. I've been really really busy and
2. I haven't been knitting

 

You may not know it, but I play the theatre (not professionally but on a very high amateur level), and we had our opening night on the 17th of January. Before that, you can imagine, we had practice every other evening and after that I have been playing once or twice a weekend. I's been quite a lot to handle, and I am really happy to have a two week pause in playing 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!

Ron Mueck in Tampere

Ron Mueck sculpture

A few weeks ago me, Nick and a few friends visited the Ron Mueck exhibition in Sara Hildén art museum in Tampere. Now Ron Mueck is an artist who makes very live-looking sculptures of different sizes, and this was his first exhibition in any Nordic country, so a real must-see for a lot of people! It was really interesting, too. The sculptures come on different sizes from huge to small and are very, very true to reality.

October impressions

Fireplace

It's October folks! Here are some impressions of the first Sunday in October.

 

I made a fire in our big fireplace to keep the house warm.

 

The pumpkins are enjoying the sun inside as it is now too cold for them outside and we harvested them all.

 

I got this adorably sad Uppo-Nalle from a flea market iin September because it moved me so much I had tears in my eyes. He since lives on our couch.

Meet Miss Sophie

Miss Sophie

I finally managed to get decent pictures of our very lively new cat whom we have named Miss Sophie (Dinner for one, anyone?). She has been with us good two weeks now and seems to like us. She does claw places she shouldn't and ignores her clawing post completely. Any ideas what one could do to get her to claw places she should? She's not into catnip though, I tried that already. Other than that she's very lovely and cuddly and active and we like very very much already.
