2015!

I didn’t knit and crochet as much as I wanted in 2015 but then again, you always want to do more! Turns out that working, studying for a Masters degree and 2 young children does cut down your crafting time :)

So here is my Crafted in 2015 list (as remembered…):

Purple Kertalogi hat for a friend – Ravelry

A smaller purple Kertalogi – Ravelry

Crochet

It’s October again!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

In October 2011 I did a breast yarnstorm outside the The Icelandic Cancer Society.

In October 2012 I took “the travelling boob” with me everywhere I went and made a series that I called Boob on the go.

I have not planned anything for this October but if you want to yarnbomb with boobies, here is a free pattern I made: Pink Breast.

Ohh and it’s only 78 days until x-mas and I have started planning and making some gifts! I have to say that I’m a bit proud of myself for being so much ahead of time ;)

Hello 2012!

Exciting year this 2012!

In the end of 2010 I made fiber related resolutions for the year 2011:

Among my knitting new year’s resolutions is to knit more than I frog (that’s going to be a challenge…), knit socks for the first time and design something wonderful! And try to make room in my stash cabinet… for a new stash of course ;)

1. Knit more than I frog: Can’t say that happened…

2. Knit socks for the first time: I made it toe up to the heel and then gave up. I guess I’ll have to knit my first pair of socks in 2012!

3. Design something wonderful: On it…

4. Make room in my stash cabinet… for new stash: Ehh… let’s just say that I enlarged my stash keeping area so the cabinet is still full and some other places too…

 

So the fiber resolutions for 2012 are… drumroll:

1. Knit socks!

2. Spin more!

3. Knit more!

4. Design more!

5. Yarnstorm more!

In 2012 I will, besides all the fiber related fun I will get my Bachelor degree in folklore from the University of Iceland. My thesis was about yarn graffiti. I will also become a mom! Me and my husband are expecting our first child this summer. So you can guess what kind of knitted garments will be on my needles the next few months ;)
