A postcard from Travel Turtle

A postcard from Travel Turtle

Do you still write postcards? The snail mail ones? I still love sending them and I am always crazy happy when I receive one from my friends. Now in the age of the Internet those little gems have almost been forgotten, but there are some things that are just as nice as a postcard: It’s when I receive a picture of my beloved Travel Turtle friends from around the world! As it is the traveling season for most now, I…

Into the wild – take your knitting outdoors!

Into the wild – take your knitting outdoors!

Goodness, time flies. Summer is so short around here that it seems to be running at the speed of light (it might also be me being on parental leave, but well…)! There are so many things happening at the same time that it’s hard to keep track. Kid #1 is on his summer break and happy picking (and painting his face and clothes with) wild blueberries, while kid #2 still sleeps through most of the day and is happily keeping…

KAL winners

These last few weeks have just been flying past and I haven’t been able to knit (or write) as much as I would have liked to. But today, on the first day of my well deserved maternity leave I’m finally able to put up my feet and knit. It was about time. Now I finally get to catching up with all those de-stashing-projects that have been piling up on my wish list! And also I’m very happy to announce the…

Let there be dragons!

Let there be dragons!

Still in a de-stashing mood, still not visibly getting any closer to emptying the Sockables drawer…How is this possible, there must be SOME more space in there somewhere?? As I’m working on new designs knitting these Dragon hats from random bits and pieces at least helps a bit to get some air into my Sockables. For some reason this pattern really got to me. Maybe its related to the fact that all my dragons seem to primarily feed on leftovers…

On a winter morning…

…I discovered that the year is almost over. So many things have happened in 2016 that it is hard to keep track. Luckily I have my Ravelry project gallery to remind me of what knits jumped off my needles… Phew! This blog went online in May and I haven’t had as much time to blog as I would have liked to, but still I’m happy to see that there are some of you out there who seem to like it…

Jingle bells…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. With cozy feelings, steaming teapots, cookies and the smell of mistletoe and good food. And lots of time for knitting and cuddling yarns, too 😛 Hopefully you’ll have some time to relax and knit, and enjoy a bit of quiet time in the process to spend with your loved ones. Speaking of which, I wanted to thank you all for supporting me, by reading this blog, purchasing and knitting my patterns, sharing…
