Spring-is-not-here-yet feelings

Hello all,

I've had an amazing weekend and I hope you've had too. I and my boyfriend went to a Christian youth conference this weekend and it was really great :) Meeting new people and seeing old aquintances and sharing experiences is amazing.
And I had lectures earlier this week so I had time to do some knitting and finally had time to finish my lil bunny. The dress is a bit crazy coloured and with quite springlike colours
. One thing I'e noticed over years of knitting plush toys is that when you finally think that you've learnt to pick right needles to right yarn, something still goes a bit wrong in your gauge and the filling shows and there's nothing you can do about it... But never mind, I think she is still a cutie. The yarn is from Lidl (it is supermarket in Europe, a bit like Tesco in Britain) and was super cheap. I thought it would be pain to knit and look like a mess, but in the end I was surprised how well their cotton yarn works for bunnies.

Winter and so...

Well, it is totally snowing!!!! :) :) :) and I love it!
There is more than 30cm snow now and I'm so grateful, but beccause it is winter I had to make something that reminds me of summer and this time I crocheted a panda bear. Pattern is my own and still needs some fixes, but all in all I'm quite happy this little panda turned out. I like pandas and well quiten often we (meaning my boyfriend and I) call each other pandas. The reason is that after we've talked on the phone 'til 1am or so and school begins at 8am, you almost look like a panda bear ;)

The books I found from post-xmas sales. The left one is basic instructions to different knitting stitches and on the right is Tilda's Spring (yup, I'm also waiting for spring...). I also found a very good handbook about sewing (my little brother is borrowing that one right one, so it's not in the picture.

For me my Christmastime this year was a time to take a break from social media and TV-watching. You can't …

January fun

Hello all and Happy this year,

My studies began a while ago and I'm very happy to be back to school. My laptop died this week and I havn't bought new one. I've knitted socks and picked up my crochet hook again. It snowed quite a lot this past week and i really enojoy winter now. It is so comfortable to pick up knitting needles and a cup of coffee and start studying in a warm place and just look outside. I really thank God for that.
My other projects are a few books I need to read (besides school) and I found very good books related to knitting and sewing from post Christmas sales.
And I really hope that after my computer dying I might be able to save unpublished patterns from my old cds
