Well it’s Autumn. I have a real fondness for Autumn. I tend to wrap things up in Autumn. For me it’s a time when things just come together, when all of my ideas and ‘works in progress’ come to fruition.
This last week saw a couple of important milestones for me.
We went to the Royal Albert Hall yesterday. It was the first time I had ventured to this mythical venue.
The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Ravi Shankar… just to drop a few names amongst the many great musicians who have blessed this place by their presence.
The place worked its magic on me, as I discovered a little gem. I discovered Gustav Holst.
Hello my dear friends,
I hope you are all well and that you all enjoyed Spring, Summer and the Autumn Equinox, wherever you are!
Here life is like the tide. In and out. Gentle rolling waves. Storms. Winds. Then deep, blue and calm again. My thoughts and ideas are like seagulls. Sometimes they blend in the scenery, with just a few passing comments. Sometimes they shout too loud or steal my chips.
In this lifetime, I learned to knit with my gran when I was a little girl. I knitted a blanket for my beloved teddy Boulgoum. Then life happened, and I didn’t touch knitting needles until 20 years later, when my son was about 1 and half year old (late 2009).
Back then I was still recovering from an insanely demanding, busy and stressful job which I had lost shortly after the birth of my son and I was wrestling with post natal depression. Then I had the urge to knit. Literally. I bought some acrylic yarn, size 4mm straight needles and I improvised him a scarf here and then…
Another month has passed… thousands of stitches later : Hello World! :)
Where did the time go? March felt like a second. This Winter felt like a blur.
Here are a few pictures of this week in projects…
My Etsy Shop had a make over and has now re-opened. Come and visit if you have a second!
The weather is getting warmer. The days are slowly but surely getting longer. The sun has been out for the last couple of days… All I have to say is : Hooray!
On the Knitting Front:
