So close ...

Nothing knitting related. I just can't imagine this happened. Have you seen this on CNN? That's where I live, and I just can't believe it ...

Happy New Year

Wishing you all the best for the coming year!

It's been a while since I was around here. There has been knitting and spinning going on, but my life has been very chaotic. I've learned long ago that a new year doesn't mean a big change. But I do hope this year will give me some new answers. The last months have been so chaotic and I have no clue where my life is going. Maybe I should make some decissions.

At least there's my knitting and spinning!!

It was an ok year, though looking back at my finished knits it's a lot less then I thought it was. My life is so busy and it all goes so fast ...

2008 knits

These are not all of my knits from the past year. I never took pictures of a few, and I didn't add them all to this mosaïc. But it gives you a good idea of my major knitting!!

I'm quite sure 2009 will again be filled with socks. I love knitting socks and they are quick and portable. I'm still doing the 52 Pair Plunge II so I need to knit more socks! :D Might not get there, but I'm sure I'll get a bit more done then last time.

One of my goals for the coming year is knit a few bigger garments for myself. A sweater or so. I need more handknits (I'm sitting in the freezing cold of my office at the moment - it's been extremely cold here in Belgium with the coldest temperatures in over 25 years - and as the heating is very poor here I'm cold all the time!).

I also want to spin more, knit stuff from my handspun, and maybe even spin enough for a sweater/cardigan, or my latest love, a tee to wear over a long sleeved t-shirt.

I do have a few more finished knits to blog about, including my Christmas socks for my family. And a few more handspun yarns. But most of this isn't photographed yet due to the lack of decent lighting. But I promiss a few more posts soon.
