Just some knitting

Hi!

I just learned a new skill. How to knit a square from corner to corner. First you increase until X stitches. Then you decrease until you have Z stitches you started with. As simple as that. And I decrease twice on every 2nd row, once in each end.

Just some knitting

 

I’ve been knitting a bear recently. I sure hope I have enough yarn for that. May the time show me, how it goes. I still have some yarn left. I hope I don’t need to take my spare stash, but if I have to, I have to.

I have not touched my needlepoint for a few days. I know I have to get it done too, but I think it’s better for my conscience if I knit for the time being and stitch again when it’s time for that.

This year has been miserable this far

Hi!

I am just a miserable writer, but I like it. But I also like knitting and stitching. This year has been rough. I have been stitching “my condolences” – kind of presents whole this year 2016. First I lost a friend, but that happened a week after last Midsummer. Then another, younger friend of mine lost her father-in-law. I knew I couldn’t just brush it aside. I had to make her a present. It is almost done. Almost. But not yet.

But I had not even started the “my condolences” present, when the same friend lost her grandmother. I can’t even imagine the grief she is feeling right now.

And on top of that another, a lot older friend of mine lost her husband last winter. I sent her already a card in which I said how sorry I am for her loss. But I stitched her a “my condolences” – present as well. At the moment the present in question is in the hands of the local Framing Man. He knows what to do. This is not the first time he has framed my projects, and it will not be last.
