3 -3.5 mm circular needles

What a bummer. I was hyped up to cast on and knit a hat for myself with this beautiful rowan yarn. Only to find out that I don’t have the right sized needles. I’ll have to cast on for another project until I can stop by a yarn store and buy needles. Perhaps I should begin a Neighbourly with some of my left over yarn in the meantime…?

By the way: Remember the days are getting lighter minute by minute and day by day (at least in this part of the world). Hope you are having a good week!

cleaning time

I’m sorry for the absence and quietness over here. It has been 20 days of cleaning. I have been cleaning out Christmas, cleaning closets, cleaning the fridge, and cleaning book shelves.

I have made a chunky vegetable soup out of left over vegetables and Jamon Serrano (Spanish cured ham). And I have ordered my books by colours. It looks more harmonious and I love the fresh feeling of a good cleaning and tidying session.

I have also bought yarn. Lovely soft tweed rowan yarn. After looking for Rowan yarn in a dozen of yarn stores I finally found one store that had it. I could almost not believe my luck when I found the exact colour I was hoping to find. Colourway 150. If you are on Ravelry you can easily find out what is next on my knitting list… If not I’ll show you as soon as there is enough light to take a good photo. I can’t wait to cast on.

Made in Yonder 2009

Happy New Year everyone!

It has been some wonderful and peaceful days here in Yonder. We needed this respite from work and everyday life. And the best sign that it has been a good one is that we look forward to get back at work and into our daily routine.

How was your holiday? Did you get to do some of the things you wanted? Did you get to not do some of the things you didn’t want to do? Are you ready for a new year and a new decade? I hope so.

I’m ending last year by sharing photos of projects I finished during 2009. My slate is clean. I have projects to finish and projects to begin. I’m looking forward to share 2010 with you.

Warm hugs from my place to yours!
