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

2012 knitting review - it's not so little after all!

Happy New Year 2013! How has the new year started for you?


I have in fact finished a pair of socks (post is coming) and started a new shawl, so I am hoping the knitting mojo is finally getting back, even a bit. But as I was looking through my posts from 2012, I noticed that I have indeed been knitting this year and finished a few pretty things!


Lots has happened in 2012 with the blog and in my life:

I've got a sewing machine!

My sweing machine

Meet my new Singer sewing machine, which my dear father-in-law gave to me. It's old (the manual is from 1983), simple and exactly what I wanted!


See, I've been wanting a sewing machine for years now, and finally with my own room (I guess we adults should call it an office... so my office) I have enough space for it! Hooray!


It really is a simple machine with all the stitches a beginning sewer may need and more, things like a buttonhole program and a special foot for zippers.

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!

Summer of 2012 in Finland

Vuoksi rapids

I went back to Finland, my native country and forever home for a week and got back a few days ago. I actually knit 6 rounds of a cowl while there, but also went swimming once, visited Imatra and the Vuoksi rapids (it was a 500 km drive there and it was a HOT day!), spent lots of time with family and generally just had a great, great time.


Didn't buy any yarn either! Success!


Here are a few impressions from this year:

It's my birthday and I'll knit if I want to!

And I sure want to! After a major loss of my knitting mojo lately it has luckily returned just in time for my birthday, which happens to be today!


So what better way to celebrate than with a Knit Night with the ladies! Let's face it: I don't have family where I live, and my best friends are the dames from my knitting circle - so I'll celebrate with them. In fact, I am planning on casting on a cowl.


Will you join the celebrations and knit a few rows with me today?

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!

101 in 1001 vol 1 from 2009-2011 - a wrap-up

Japan - a goal reached

On 11th of April, 2009 I posted a list of 101 goals I wanted to reach during the next 1001 days. And behold, on the 2nd of January 2012 these 1001 days were through. Such a long but still such a short time - about 2,5 years.


Throughout the years I kept coming back to these goals, and actually finished the majority of them. I updated the list (see it here) the last time a few days ago, and here are the results:
