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!

Travel journal USA 2016 - Part 3 - Dogs I befriended

Beauregard - a St. Bernard pup

This very short part 3 of my travel journal is dedicated to the dogs I met during our trip. I am missing pictures of many lovely dogs, such as Mack, Popeye, Lucy, Scott and Leela, but will let these three represent the dog friends I made in the US. Meet Beauregard, a huge St. Bernard puppy; Mason, an old gentleman; and a friendly dog at Dickinson College, who let me rub his belly forever, but whose name I never learned.

Das schöne Raumschiff kehrt zurück or the brilliant landing of C74

#c74landing

Last Friday the spaceship C74 landed after a 41-year-flight through the universe. After 1 year of travel the ship and its crew reached its destination. Coming out of hyper space and hibernation the crew finds itself still in space not knowing where and when they are. The C74 autopilot is approaching a planet. Only basic live support systems are on, as well as the coffee machine, the champagne bucket and the lights!

New direction for Worsted Knitt

So, as you must have noticed, my knitting mojo which kind of faded away some years ago never really returned. I haven't been blogging weekly, not even monthly, and hardly ever about my knits.

 

I am still here though, and I am doing interesting things, so I've decided to let go of the knitting-only idea of my blog worsted-knitt.net, and make it more of a personal blog; a place where I can talk more about things that matter to me today in this time and place of my life - things like

101 in 1001 vol 3

Go to nature weekly

I started my third 101 in 1001 challenge and realized I didn't share it at all. The previous ones I have shared 99% completely (see them here: first, second), but this new one is really personal, so I'll just share a few samples. The last one went really bad, but I feel this time around I have some really interesting goals on the list and am really looking forward to achieving them all!
