I'm the worst blogger at the momentbut I feel that I have enough energy to sit in front of computer.
nevertheless, I have many things to tell. Many challenges. I have started to knit my first socks with double pointed needles. I'm very excited. I chose this yarn. But I have also ordered more wool. In this case wool hand-dyed, I want to support those independent brands.
My yellow pullover finally has become a giant ball of wool, pattern and yarn combination was not correct.
I've started this jacket, I'm very happy and motivated with this pattern, it was a long time that I wanted to knit this jacket, so I'm really enjoying it.
and another reason that I'm excited is that I started knitting (currently only on knit stitch) with the continental technique. I thought it was impossible to change because after so many years knitting change the method seemed very difficult, but it hasn't happened. The first rows reminded me of my beginning, without strength to hold the wool, it was like relearning how to knit!

The lovely shawl Mara is finished, I love how it looks and now I'm wearing all the time.
These days are being a bit complicated, having to stay home if barely move, it is difficult for me. But every day I feel better and I have a little more mobility.
Seeing the sun shine and to have the window open and feel the fresh air helps me feel better. Do not know why but it's magical.
How it is too, receiving a surprise package, my dear friend Mirva filled me with happiness the other day, she has compiled objects to my new home, including these lovely vases. Thank you friend!
And thank you too my dear Vibeke, for your emails.
Never before had purchased online wool, now because I can't go buy, it's the moment to try. I  wanted to knit this with cotton for this spring and wanted it to be very soft and sweet color, I think I've got, now I just start knitting! I bought them here.

Wishing you lovely spring days!

My two new auto gifts, I love my mug of house of rym.
Homemade bread, I love it!
And I've also sewn a new bag.
This morning I had a small surgery on my foot, so I have to spend the weekend without moving, an new interesting book and my needles will be my company these days. Along with any movie or series that had been pending for a long time and never found the time.

Happy weekend and enjoy the spring!!

+ come back to resume Japanese literature, for a while I couldn't stop reading one after another. Now I felt and I still feel fascinated by scandinavian detective novel, but yesterday I started this new book. Happy with the encounter.
What is your favorite genre or book now?

Today it's rainy and foggy Sunday, I wake up so early today and I've studied a little bit, now I'm baking this cake, hmmmmm
And also I'm enjoying a delicious fleur de geisha tea .
Yesterday we went to a tea shop and we drank a white rose tea... :)
I finished the baby's hat and now is on my friend's way!!
Now I started this shawl in merino wool ( again merino, yes) but I'm dreaming in this sweater I would like to knit it in cotton for this shameful spring.. but I'm not sure if I'll be able to knit it!
Today I'm going to knit on my Mara shawl and watch an old film, I don't need more in this winter day.
Wishing you a lovely Sunday and wishing also spring comes again!!

I finished this sweater. At first it seemed that it was a very quick knitting (needles 15mm), but I had to unravel twice, because of beginner mistakes, so I've been working my patience with this project :)
I love the pattern because it is quite retro with this wide sleeves. I used merino wool.
Now I'm knitting a baby hat for a gift.
Excluding the weekend, we have been a lovely spring days, I have let in a little fresh air.
My two actually favorite cosmetic products. I'm in love with almond smell of hand cream.

I'm enjoying this serie ( sorry only in spanish).

Beautiful spring flowers or almost it looks like spring
I baked an apple cake yesterday.
These are two balls of fantastic yarn that I bought some weeks ago and I knitted a hat.

Finally I manage to organize all my notes and ideas, I focused it in only one note book and I'm using a week plan, well.. it seems to work, I only have to remember to write it only in these two.

Time goes so fast, now that days are longer,  excites me to see the light, this light is precious, which previously I was unable to appreciate ..

Happy weekend!!

1. Darkness in our apartment.
2. Alpaca baby pullover finished.
3. Packages and packages ( and gifts for my friends).

Lately I've realized that I have many notebooks including Mac Blog notes where I write ideas, recommendations for books, movies, recipes and a thousand more things , I think I should focus it on only one . What is your method to remember all this, only one notebook?
Again one more post about my chaotic organization.
