About Me:
I have taken up knitting again at the end of 2005 after having been taught by my mum (brave and patient and very deserving) in my early teens. Since then my fingers hardly stand still. During my 4 hours commute each day I usually knit two of those. Weekends go by doing chores and enjoying another project in the evenings watching TV or a movie. One or the other project is always in my bag, so Knitting In Public days are just "well, what's new".
Other hobbies: riding my motorbike, reading, walking our dog...

Yarn, pattern and project are knitter's / crocheter's choice.

Pay it forward to whomever you feel is in need of a knitted / crocheted hug.

 

This one day, nearly 10 years ago, has affected many even if we may not know anyone personally whose life was lost.

 

There's only one request from my side - as angry, sad, upset or…

Knitting Block Gone - the needles are clicking away again :)

Posted on August 26, 2011 at 5:00am 14 Comments

Yes, my dear friends, it's gone. My knitting block, that is. No more sitting around moping. No time for that. I have 4 prayer shawls to do - all in God's good timing. And I've cast on for another pair of socks, with the Tidal Wave socks done (yeay).

 

Here are my Summer Sneaker socks.…
