Do I knit? You bet!

I read once that it’s bad netiquette to apologize for one’s blogging hiatus. So I won’t apologize, I will only assure you that I’m still here and I’m knitting with more fervour than I have in years. So much so, that I haven’t really given myself time to blog about it.

I have finished three things since you last heard from me, but I’ll tell you more about those in individual blog posts. Soon!

But I also have quite a few things on the needles right now, projects both new and old. I’m working on a lovely lace shawl that I hope to finish in time for me to wear at a party in June. I’m also working on a pair of mittens to accompany a recently finished hat (more about that in an upcoming post). I’ve practically fished the red cardigan I’ve been working on since 2012, all the knitting and blocking is done, all I have left to do is to put the pieces together. I’ve also finished one sock. Don’t worry, I will complete the pair, but so many other things (and yarns!) have caught my attention recently.

Here are some pictures:

I seem to be finding inspiration in so many things right now. I’m constantly finding new and inspiring knitters online that can’t stop myself from following on Instagram and Ravelry. I’ve bought some new knitting books that make me want to create, create! I’m also attending a sewing class and I’m currently working on a summer dress. Sewing! I want to sew dresses! A whole bunch of them! Even though I am an Autumn/Winter person, I’m absolutely in love with spring right now. I don’t want it to end, I’m not yet ready for summer! But in that same moment I long for summer, walking barefoot in the grass, cotton dresses, neverending daylight and misty mornings.

One of my favourite knitters and designers right now is Viffla. She has knit an amazing number of lovely cardigans, and designed a few as well. She has such a natural style and confidence in everything she does and it inspires me tremendously.

I also find great inspiration in one of my dear friends, Erika, whom you can find at her blog and her web page (both in Swedish). Her creations, photos and stories about her life on the island Gotland always inspires me in so many ways.

I hope that you also feel inspired and that you have the time create all those things you long for.

  1. I just this morning posted to my own blog. I had not put up anything since October! Like you, I’ve been knitting a lot, just not blogging about it or reading blogs. I went back to teaching kindergarten this year after years of being in the upper grades and have been very busy readjusting. It was lovely to read through your recent (and not-so-recent) posts. 🙂
