Like always, I have a bunch of excuses as to why I don’t update this blog as much. You know, Christmas is coming! That’s always a good excuse.
But I’ve actually been a little bit depressed, because a package full of handmade gifts that I sent to US have apparently been lost in the mail. Anyway, that’s what I figured as it’s been a month and a half now and there’s no package to be found, even though it was sent by priority post which usually takes about two weeks.
I’ve packed a lot of decorations in the package, for example these two hand-painted horses.
I guess what’s lost is lost and I can’t do anything about it, but it certainly wasn’t encouraging. So I’ve only focused on my own long-time projects since then – I keep working on my Kalevala blanket, missing only four squares now.
I’ve started to knit a sweater for myself that I’ve been temped to make for quite some time. I bought Holst Garn during Black Friday sales and it’s so pretty!
I’m knitting a sweater called Threipmuir by an amazing designer Ysolda Teague. It’s inspired by traditional icelandic sweaters, but the fingering weight yarn makes it much more delicate.
