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

Welcome to Worsted Knittworsted knitt
Me & my cat

Hello you! Great that you stopped by. This is Worsted-Knitt.net, a knitting enthustiasts archive blog and pattern depository.

I am Lumia aka Worsted Knitt and I passionately knitted from 2006 to around 2014. This blog covers that time and a few years after that. I do not actively tend to this blog anymore. You can find my patterns on here still and quite a lot of nice content to be honest - just nothing new.

My current project is my homestead and permaculture Beyond Buckthorns. Check that out if you like!

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.

If it has a poor cat on it, I want itworsted knitt
Poor cat kitchen towels

Well, like the title says. No matter how minimalist I try to live and how little I want to spend, if there's a cute, poor cat on something -anything-, I want it. Especially if it's hand made in Finland and something useful, too.

Year 2017 in picturesworsted knitt
Dandelion

2017 was a good year. I'm so blessed having had several good years in a row - plus I do think a bit of an attitude change has helped also. A lot has happened, it's been our (me & hubbys) first full year in Finland, the year we started our business and a year of many ups and downs. I made you a little collage to enjoy, so please do! Click the pics to see the captions.

 

Happy new year 2018 to all my readers!

The future lies ahead

Since 2009 I have been doing so-called "101 in 1001" challenges
(see postings here: first, second.) My last one ended in June 2017. I have totally and completely neglected it since, say, 2015? Anyhow, I wanted to show you how I did, nonetheless. Let's see:

Building the biogas plant

Saturday the 29th of April 2017 was a historic day. It's when (as far as we know) the first DIY biogas system in Finland was built, and I was there to make it happen!

Well hello, let me introduce myself! I am Lumia, and I am the entrepreneur and head of the board at my new company Chase & Snow Oy! We (me and husband, the webguru and AD) make functional websites that look good and advertising materials that work for small-to-medium businesses and NGOs. All in all, we're really good at what we do and really excited about the work too!

I'm participating in the 2017 Helmet reading challengeworsted knitt
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!
