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!

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!

Cherries
Summer

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!

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)!
