Knitting socks

I've got quite a few knitting projects on the go at the moment. Partly because again, the lack of proper heating requires creative thinking and dressing. And also because knitting is so very calming.

Well, until at the very end of the 2nd sock I try to knit while I mediate in a major fight between 2 princesses. The result? I get my needles in a a twist and make a mess I can't seem to repair.

It's no use: undo, redo.
Probably something I need to go through numerous times to finally call myself an experienced knitter at some point in my life.

Red Winter Coat

It really is the yearly winter coat challenge. And I realize there might be no going back, I might have started a tradition. Luckily, it really does get easier every year. If you are interested, here are winter coat number 1, winter coat number 2 and winter coat number 3.

Oh, something's missing? Can you tell?
She's been waiting and praying for it for 6 months. I would love for all my teeth to still be intact but she's over the moon.

Handle with grace

Happy 2013.

I've got a great backlog of things I would like to show you, but I was so busy making presents that I forgot to take pictures.  But no worries, since we've just started a new year, I am going to be a lot better at making and taking the time to design, draft patterns, sew, draw, read, take pictures, print, dye, stitch, knit, cook, bake ... and learn a great deal of new things. 

Have I forgotten anything?

Thank you for your comments and e-mails on the advent calendar.  I really enjoyed putting it together.
