Ravelry

Så har jeg endelig fået nusset mig omkring at lave mig en profil på Ravelry - et nnyt online håndarbejdscommunity (strikning/hækling). Det fungerer lidt ligesom Myspace/Facebook, med det twist at man kan lægge info ind om projekter, og hvad man af garn og pinde. Det er en total fed måde at holde overblik over hvad man har, hvad man vil og har lavet og ikke mindst: hvordan andre har lavet noget tilsvarende.
Jeg har fotograferet og beskrevet nogle af mine projekter. Det der med at lægge min garn-samling (stash) ind, bliver nok ikke lige i morgen, jeg tror jeg har omkring 50 kg garn.....

Finally I got around to using my Ravelry-account. Ravelry is an online knitting/crocheting-community, if there is anyone outthere who haven't heard about it yet. It works a bit like MySpace/Facebook, but you can add decriptions and picture of your projects and of your needles and stash. It is a great way to keep track of what you have, what you want to do and have done and not least: how other people have done similar projects.

I have been photographing and describing some of my projects. The part of adding my stash, well it wont happen tomorrow, I think I have in excess of 50 kg of yarn.

Godt nytår / Happy New Year

Det var så det, og hvilket år, et dejligt et! Glæder mig til at se hvad det nye år har til mig. Kæresten og jeg fejrede nytårsaften sammen. Det er første gang i....øh..altid, at jeg ikke har været til fest nytårsaften. Kæresten tryllede i køkkenet og lavede Indonesisk Rejesuppe til os. Nam nam! Og med lækre øl til, GB Blue Mountain Stout og Hoegaarden Weissbier. Vi havde det monsterhyggeligt og tog det helt afslappet. Rart at kunne slappe helt af efter julen (som har været superdejligt, men også udmattende).

Nu har jeg også lyst til at komme igang med håndarbejde igen. Det tager altid et par måneder efter sommerens hektiske markedsaktivitet før jeg gider vikingeri igen, men nu er jeg klar. Nogen der trænger til et nålebundet telt?:D

Another year gone and what a year :D. And I look so much forward to see what this new year has to bring me.

The boyfriend and I celebrated New Years Eve together. It is the first time in....eh..ever, that I haven't been to a party on New Years Eve.
The boyfriend did magic in the kitchen and made us Indinesian Shrimp Soup (picture2). Yum yum! And it was accompanied by some great beer, a Danish stout and Hoegaarden (Flemish/Belgian) wheat beer. We had a great and cosy time, and after the Tour de Family of last week, it was nice to relax and enjoy to be home and be together.
It was nice to be able to relax completely after yul (which has been wonderful, but also very exhausting).

Now I also feel "crafty";) again. It always takes a few months after the hectic market acticities of the summer before I feel like doing crafts again, but now I'm ready.
A needlebinded tent anyone?:D
