Ever sweeter?

When I started my second phase of knitting (i.e. attending Stitch’n’Bitch groups) some five years ago, it was all about skulls and punk.

Now, most of the favorites of my friends on ravelry are lace scarves… What’s happened?

(btw, as there’s nothing better than a nice Aufhefbung, I found a skull lace pattern: http://vintagestitchorama.blogspot.com/2006/07/skull-stockings.html)

Blesssing #1

Today, after having accompanied my husband to the doctor, I cycled back through Utrecht through the thaw. But there was still enough snow left to give a sense of a wintery inner city (at the Van Asch Van Wijkkade).  It being halfway through the afternoon helped, of course – you get less distracted by traffic. At times like this, I really like cycling through the older parts of Utrecht. Especially, when my husband’s allright.

New Year’s resolutions

Normally, I don’t really make New Year’s resolutions. But I’ve wanted to better myself for some time now 😉

So here we go:

  • Count my blessings
  • See my friends more often
  • Eat less meat
  • Do more walking, biking etc.
  • Read more poetry
  • Increase concentration

Next step is to turn these resolutions into actionable items… This might be too trivial for you to bear reading…

Nieuwjaarsborrel 2010

Eerst: aan alle twee lezers: ik wens jullie een schitterend 2010 toe!

Gisteren hadden we een nieuwjaarsborrel: erwtensoep (met vleesch of vega), roggebrood + spek of brie, bokbier en appelsap. Was geslaagd: hoop mensen, hoop kinderen, hoop lawaai. De kapstok zakte in elkaar onder het gewicht van winterjassen.
