Hi there!Jule the Cat

Man, that took a long time. Don’t you hate it when there is nothing much wrong with you, but you simply feel worn out and sleepy? Last week was like that again – on Friday, I felt too tired and groggy to go to the library (!), so I went to the doc again to make sure I didn’t catch bronchitis. Good news: No bronchitis. Bad news: The cold simply hadn’t worn off yet. Argh … I didn’t have to call in sick again, though, and so I spent yet another weekend on the couch, with lots of knitting, a new game for my DS (“Golden Sun – The Dark Descent”) and (since I didn’t have any new library books) Elizabeth Gilbert’s “The Signature of All Things”.

Rest was only interrupted on Saturday, when we went to E.’s birthday party.

Apart from the book she had asked for (a crime novel – E. will read just about anything if it contains corpses, a detective and gruesome murder), I had a surprise present in store.

The Blueberry Shawl.

Hi folks! 😀

Are you okay? I have been really busy last month, we still haven’t unpacked all of the boxes – since today, Philipp’s CDs and most of our DVDs (I never knew we had so many!) have found their place and it dawns on me that Continue reading

All I see is green …

I actually have a surprise for some readers of this blog … hehehe … But not today, I think.
During the last weeks, I have made one-and-a-half pairs of Charade socks. by Sandra Park.
I love this pattern – it was my first »real« sock pattern I ever used, and I will forever highly recommend it. Not only is the pattern very beautiful, but the instructions are very, very clear and even fun to read! Continue reading
