Before I head to the End-of-the-year Party, a quick run-down what happened to me in 2007 - not chronologically, but what I can remember:

  • got my big love back - and lost him again after a couple of blissful months
  • went to a great vacation on Rhodos wiht my sister
  • didn't go to the Oktoberfest
  • spent a lot (and I mean a lot) of time at various beergardens in Munich
  • fell in love and was let down (remember cute guy?)
  • had some great parties at my flat
  • used up 10 pens of red ink to grade school papers
  • knitted, knitted, knitted
  • started this blog
  • started to go to the local S'n'B and met a bunch of great people there
  • went a last time to "my" disco (which closes today after 10 great years - I will miss you K41!)
  • was said to be pregnant two times (not true!!!)
  • got my new sofa (love it, love it, love it)
  • spent great times with my friensd (D, B, U, F, T - what would I do without you)
  • went to the "Wir sind Helden" concert

All in all, a great year - hope 2008 will be as great! See ya then!

Seasons Greetings and a contest and an update!

I wish all of you Merry Christmas!!!!
A quick update on the knitting: I made myself as a Christmas present - the Mystery Stole #3. I only have 20 rows to go on the wing then I am finished which will probably be tomorrow. And the person who first guesses the day when I started this project will win 100gr of Regia Silk in your fav colour!

Update on Christmas Eve: I am done and blocked!!!

Insensitive and rude

yep, that's me. Funnily, I never thought I would be called that. If you want to follow the discussion, go here.

Good news: I nearly finished the blue white pullover.

Bad news: I have developed a sort of ear-ache tinnitus thing over the past weeks.
So I will take things slowly and probably not blog anymore this year.

Slow work

Compared to my usual speed of knitting, I have slowed down very much over the last two weeks. It seems like there is no progress. I started this simple turtleneck a couple of weeks ago but I am stuck on the front. The yarn is also courtesy of Amelie and it is a kind of "Bändchengarn" (I don't know the English expression for this) - I hoep it will not stretch too much. The colourway will work nice with a pair of jeans. I use 6mm needles and still it feels like it doesn't grow one bit. I think I need the holidays desperately - I have only energy for the most basic work to get through the day. Only one week to go!

Happy Birthday to me

It was my 29th birthday on Saturday and I got these lovely roses from my parents (I edited this photo myself and am proud of my ever growing skills). Thank you for all the well wishes I received on that day!! my new age didn't start well as I have a cold - again - and my nose is so clogged that I can't sleep :-(

Pink Saturday

I don't know what's wrong with me. I am tired, tired, tired. And what's worse, I look it. At the moment I'm grading papers and I feel like my eyes will close any second, even though I slept 11 hours last night. Furthermore, my mood isn't the best. The time before my birthday is always rough - especially when I am unattached as just now. As Bully said in "Der Schuh des Manitu": "Ich bin mit der Gesamtsituation nicht zufrieden". And I am not in the mood for knitting (not in the mood for anything than hanging about actually). Anyways, I got my self to blocking the Hanami Stole and it turned out pretty well I think. The basket side:

And the blossom side:

A week ago I finished the cardigan with the yarn from Amelie's loot I got for free :-). I used Cosmicpluto's pattern. This is a kind of self-striping boucle yarn that came on a cone. I call this my comfort cardigan as it is soft and roomy and cosy - like a hug.
