Oops, I disappeared again ... Life is pretty Good these days but I'm so glad I didn't know how long settling in would take! DH and I are still renting a room in a shared house, it proved impossible to get a mortgage for most of the year but now we have a good lead and just put a bid on a house :-) I hope, hope, hope this will work out now! DH is getting his business off the ground, it's all working really well, and I'm still working in Amsterdam, commuting quite long stretches, not finding much time for my hobbies ... But things are moving: We started on the adoption process this summer and just finished the first part! Stay tuned (if there are any of you left out there!) for some brain-storming on how to do some fun fundraising which ties in with my hobbies ...
On 7 Oct I speed-knitted these tiny socks for the early surprise arrival of my friend's first baby:
Luckily, I happened to be in Germany the week-end he was born, so I got to see him at 48 hours old :-)
Once back home in NL I knitted a matching hat and sent it to Germany:
The yarn is a leftover Opal yarn, I think it's Marianne's Dackel. I ordered a big bunch of sock yarn again from her last week, I need some serious motivational aid!
Btw, I'm tafagirl on Ravelry if any of you are looking for me there :-)
