Advent and a Finish

 I decided to do a bit of holiday decorating this year and started with a new advent wreath. I must have donated the rectangular bowl I used in previous years, I could not find it anywhere. So I bought a new wreath alltogether. 

And I finished a hat and finger less gloves set. It is part of Knitvent 2022 on Ravelry. I am also working on a shawl, a throw, a cowl and socks as part of the event.

Shawls, Shawls, Shawls

A few shawls I made over the last year.

New Socks

 Still too warm to wear wool socks but I am sure the next Winter will come eventually. 😂

My latest blanket

 The pattern is called 'New Beginnings', the yarn is LB Mandala Bonus Bundle in colorway Sasquatch. It is a bit of a yarn eater (a bit over 4000 yards) but it is big and heavy and will keep me warm this Winter (probably the kitties too). I love it.

Blankets on Parade

 I finished 3 crochet blankets in the past few months. The green-brown one is called 'Phoenix' and I actually started it in 2019 but then life got in the way and it went into hibernation. The other two I started this year, the rainbow colored one is called 'Doo-Dad' and the purple-yellow one is 'Whatcha-ma-call-it'. All three are patterns by Vanessa from 'Hooked on Sunshine'.

Baking and Knitting

My baking mojo is coming back! Yesterday I baked bread for the first time since Day X and for the first time ever I used sourdough starter (my new - rather demanding - pet). It is a little pale but it tastes very good and has a nice texture. 

I bought myself some lovely yarn and cast on a spring cardigan. The yarn is very nice to work with and the pattern is uncomplicated and perfect for knitting while binge watching 'Call the Midwife'. 

I have a busy week ahead and find that keeping myself busy makes life a little easier and more enjoyable. Every night when I go to bed, the memories are playing in my head like a movie and I get very little quality sleep. I stay up very long, get up late but still feel not really rested.
