happy hooker

I went nuts! Look! I mastered the flower first...

So I made an mp3player cosy and a mitten too! Just one mitten to go. (And I improvised it!) I'm hooked! (Lamest joke ever)

There was this Knitfest this weekend. There is this Knitfest actually but I had to leave early. People gathered around exhibitions, workshops, yarn, wool and fibre out in the archipelago outside of Gothenburg. I had the BEST time!
And I finally learned how to crochet properly. Still got a long way to go, but I mastered the sample bits we made, and it made me go and buy a new hook. The kind with a light in it! Just for fun of course, but unless there was the fabulous stuff to go along with your hobby... It's half the fun isn't it? Funky needles, hooks, markers and measure tapes! At least to me.

Let's go shopping! But, oh wait... Lemme just earn some new money first.

let's try it a stitch at a time ok?

Yet another try... I'm not doing too good keeping this blog am I? Well, there are many explanations to why, but since they're reasons I don't write I hope you can understand if I don't explain too much.

I haven't been too hot for quite a while, and a lot of it has to do with my own demons, fears, worries and insecurities. A lot has happened because of them, and a lot of them have happened because of things. Yes, it's that complicated.

I have an idea however:
I just got in to Ravelry - the knitting community online, so here's a thought..
I'll try and make this a pure knitting blog. You won't get into my head too much or my everyday events, but it might get me writing again. I'd like that.
I got knitting again, and tomorrow I'm even giving a lecture about how easy it is to knit according to patterns in English... Can you believe it?

Well, I'm visalisa at Ravelry, so if you're in there - look me up and come find me! Poke me! Knit with me!

I knit - therefore I am (a blogger again)
