This March I made my first-ever trip to the USA. more specifically New York. 10 days there were well spent with friends, walking the city (we only missed Queens and Long Island), looking at the beaufiful Hudson river as well as the views from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. Here are some impressions for you, too!

Finland Summer of 2014

Cherries
Summer
Tree

This summer was also spent (well, a few weeks of it... let's face it, the best weeks) in Finland, my home country. The weather was kind, and the people were great. Here are some pics for you to look at:

 

We picked cherries (actually, we cut the tree too!)

 

The yard was summery

 

We replanted some trees, here's my birch tree!

 

How was your summer? Please leave a comment!

Merry Christmas!

So, this Christmas is not the best so far - it's warm and the fields are green, and me and hubby are both ill... but it's Christmas anyway, so it can't be all bad!

 

I wish all my readers a lovely Christmas and a happy New Years - I hope 2014 brings us all health, wealth and happiness.

I'm moving house!

Sorry for the silence, but I've been packing - we're moving house in one week's time! I'll finally have my own wool room (well, office, but you know what I mean)!

 

So please excuse me for another week or two, and then the usual program will go on here at worsted-knitt.net!

Happy July!

How's summer where you are? Here in Germany it looks like finally summer could be here, perhaps to stay.

 

That also means very little knitting and lots of other activities! There'll be knitting posts coming up, as I haven't been totally lazy - for example I've been knitting lots of squares and vests for Knit a Square.

 

But for now - enjoy your Sunday (evening)!

More goals for my life - 101 in 1001 vol 2

In 2009, I made my first 101 goals in 1001 days list, which I continued to refer to during the last 2,5 years. I wrote a wrap-up of it a few days ago, and now it's time for the next list. With no further ado, here it is for all to see & keep me accountable!

Yarns for charity squares
Yarns for charity squares

I was reading Minimalist Knitter's (aka Robyn's) site as I often do and came across her newest charity endeavour: participating in Knit a Squillion action by Knit a Square.

 

Their ambitious plan is to to send 1,2 million squares to South Africa by July 10, 2012.

 

I mean: wow. 1,2 million squares will make blankets for 36.000 children in need. I thought: I want to participate in this!
