the kitty in the livingroom window
I am feeling totally uninspired

I have been working on a beret,
but close to the finish I realised it was too big,
and the colorchangeing yarn doesn't suit my fancy.
Been doing a bit of painting,
with my botanical books
Besides the above I have really just been sleeping my days away, and watching tons of tv
-exceptionally boring I tell you!

kitty and yarn for stash
The Kitty and I use most of our time sleeping these days.
It gotta change,
at least for me.
(I will let the sweet kitty sleep all she like, as long as she lets me kiss her 50 times a day;) )
More yarn for my stash.
Some I bought, some of it I got from my mother.
Most of it is going towards my blue Afghan/blanket.

Socks knitted from the toe up.
knitted 2 at a time.
60 sts in the round.
60 sts are really too much for my seize 37,
but in "1 knit, 1 purl"-rib it fits.
My fifth pair ever to have knit,
am rather pleased with them.
All I can think of at the moment is to sleep and sleep.
There is nothing I wanna do.
Nothing creative I feel like.
It's bloody annoying.

fair isle knit
So I got that Fair Isle book.
Now I have to start learning from it.
I am going to start up slowly, with easy designs and such .
And then gradually make it more advanced.
First I started one project, the one you see on the picture below.
Where I changed colour after each pattern.
But that was a bit too much for me
Then I started a new project,
where I only use two colours at a time,
to first to get to know the patterns.
It is still a bit over my head,
but If I take it slowly I might be able to do it.
practice makes perfect - I hope:)

2012 has been a bloody,fucking, crappy year.
Pardon the swearing.
There really is no other way to describe it.
It was at the hospital for 5 month being treated for depression and social phobia,
It has been hard, really hard.
yes there is a but.
Things have changed.
It is a weird sensation,
not being depressed 24/7 any more.
Its just plain odd.
I hope for good things in 2013.
Fingers, legs and arms crossed
Even though I have been very ill,
my creativity has helped me a whole lot.
Below you see the result of many hours of 2012
Folded christmas hearts
A pair of mittens, a pair of wristwarmers with fingers, christmas balls, a cable scarf for my brother
A tie for my brother, a pair of socks, a cowl, a shawl

Arrived back home in my apartment today,
Now she is right back to her normal self,
(she hasn't been her usual self the whole holiday home at my parents)
purring and cuddling as per usual.
We even had a nap earlier where she lay on my tummy
