mitten fron 2009

Back in 2009, I finished these mittens with fish, for my mother.
 - But I never took a picture of them finished.
So I did so the other day I was out for a walk.
I remember starting on a second pair for me (with the base in the turquoise/green colour), but I got real annoyed at it, and only did one mitten.
Now when I see them I can find several flaws in the execution of the mittens.
The top is all wrong and the start of the thumb is made all wrong.
It was however my first ever pair ( and only, so far) of mittens (really 3 years ago?!). And the shaping of the mitten was done mostly without a pattern.
So I will allow myself to cut myself some slack.

Some knitting

A bouquet from a friend, with some of my knitting on top

The next pictures will show the knitted Christmas balls I have made so far.
They will need to be stuffed and get a string of some sort before they are really done though.

So I took a walk in the snow 
(only a short one, can't remember where I put my mittens ;) )

So that's that.
I have been knitting more, drawing more and drinking more tea.
--- That's all I can manage to tell you right now---

Time passes, somtimes without we notice it..

Far too much time has passed with me avoiding, hating, being afraid of life.

Here at the psychiatric ward, life goes slow.
constantly checking the time- one hour to food, six hours till bed!?

At the same time it is SO intense!
Here I am constantly confronted with all of my problems at the same time.
Here there is no sleeping all day (which is normally my whole life).

I try and keep "sane" ;) , by knitting and drawing, oh and tea drinking, of course!

A try on poppy (poppies?)

Just now

I am now at a psychiatric ward in Copenhagen.
Let me bring you up to speed: (from my point of wiew)
-the world is evil
-people are mean
-You cannot trust anyone
-I am a failure
-life is ment to be this way and this hard
-I will never get a better life
-I am really just waiting to be betrayed
Now you might just think this is a load of crap.
But its my crap, my reality
At least there is still knitting to be done, drawings to make and tea to be drunk
(the picture, though turned wrong, shows a finished knitted christmas ball and a newly started christmas ball plus the pattern for it.)
There is no kitty though and no candels..
