I’ve tried to put together a yearly summary of my Insta-pictures, but the app wanted to put in older pictures. Then I’ve written a run through of the year, but it was lost. So it seems, nothing wants me to put out anything else, but this montage. Well this was such a year, there was many good things among the bad, and I am ever so grateful for them. I was heading into this year with such high momentum and expectation, now I wait for the next one with doubtful curiosity. So let’s see what comes now. As they say, nothing is forever. Nor the good, but neither the bad.

Because if one does not posts about it, it didn't happen, right?
A little more than a year ago we have started a huge project rearranging the flat... the primary obect, changing the room that used to be my tiny sewing room and what used to be my son's room was done by the summer, I even sewn the bridal gown and the crinolin / hoopksirt and the overskirt for my teammates. However, as a result there were heaps of stuff everywhere else, besides, why stop?
So I attacked my gradrobes and wardrobes and started to work on the living room, (more about that in an other post). The important thing that last year there was no Christmas tree in the flat, and this year I kind od swore that unless the living room is in FULL ORDER, there will be NO Xmas tree... But life happens, and I worked more than ever in November and December, so of course, the living room is far from being in full order...
But we had to run for a last minute shopping on yesterday morning, and this just happened.

For the longest time I did not knit neckwarmers. I just did not see why they would work for me. Then a few years ago I incidentally (yeah, right) picked up a blue fair isle patterned...neckwarmer. I grew to like it, also, they turned out not only a nice accecory, but also a cool way to use uo some leftover sock-yarns.

Oh, wow, two knitting post right next to each other.... Continious pattering around, and gaving many project at the same time does that... nothing happens for so long, then bumm, a bunch of things get finished at once...
Okay that is a bit of an overstatement, but, its not only got finished, but we even done a proper photoshot... anyhoe, I know, less talk, more pictures, right?
Both yarn was bought in second hand shops, regular sockyarns. The base is Lana grosse, the colored one is a noname "sockenwolle".
Pattern is Jennifer Steinglass Newleaf sweater.

In other words what happens, when Idecide I need new socks for my new...(ish) boots.
Last year, before we went to Transylvania, counting on the fact that we will walk a considerable distance (BTW we did it. Just sayin'.) I wanted some new boots for walking. Already on our way, we stopped at a Decathlon, and I bought a petrol colord piece, but somehow it wasn't really... comfy I guess. It was slightly too big, slightly too hard, and I kept thinking some nice, thick, soft, handknitted sokcs would help the issue a lot. Well, then we came home, summer turned into fall, then winter, we did not travelled all that much anymore, and then, this year we did, but there I needed some city-walking shoes, not boots.

A few years ago, when I started working with historical clothes I started with a traditional cage-crinoline... Actually with two right away, and then a third was made.... Now Andi decided that she wanted a dress for the 1860'ies...
