Week 4

Another week has passed and also this one has been full of wonderful clear and cold winter air, frozen fingers in the morning and beautiful pink-orange sunsets on my way home from work. If it was for me this weather could last non-stop from December till February. Unfortunately temperatures are slowly rising again and the snow will soon be gone. But I am not too sad as in three weeks we have our first one-week vacation this year.

This week I also rediscovered my flowers-in-the-snow granny square blanket and with that my love for granny squares as such. Isn’t this beautiful? I started it like two years ago and now I can’t wait to finish this one.

Week 3

So another week has passed and it has as always been stuffed with work.Temporarily I leave when it is still dark and I get home when it is dark again. But I notice that the days slowly get longer! Nevertheless I managed to dye some yarn last Sunday. It was super exciting and so much fun. I wanted to try some different techniques and not all of them have turned out so well. I prefer rather soft and pale colours so in fear of getting too much colour at my yarn I took it out of the dye bath to soon I think because once my yarn was dry it lost a lot of its color.

January

Okay, those last few weeks since Christmas have been crazy in a kind of bad way. They have been crazy exhausting in the first place. It feels like all I have done is work, eat and sleep every single day. I had no motivation to do much more than essential life stuff (you know like taking a shower, change my underwear and so on). Since I work in shifts every now and then there were nights I couldn’t sleep at home and had to work 24 hours in a row. Isn’t this bad? Okay enough of all this inbearable self-pity. Here are the good news. This weekend I am free of work!
