This is the shortest day of the year with the longest night yet to come. The sun just crossed the equator again. The wheel of the year keeps turning and a new and fresh canvas full of hopes and dreams lies in front of us...

I am SO excited to take part in a knitalong again!!!
A secret mittens KAL! I am hesitant to take part in mystery kal as you don't know if you will really like the finished object as you have no idea what you will knit.
But here it is different as (for me at least) as I love all of the designers knits. This is her blog .
First clue will be released on January first...

Recently I started to post pictures on instagram. And I love it. I hadn't really thought that would be something I could myself enjoy with, but when my friend Virginia from the blog locaxmisgallinas told me it were really fun and addictive I decided that just having a look wouldn't hurt and I signed up. And: It IS fun!
Here are a few pictures I created from my photos taken with the smart phone using some of the various filters there.
Not only did I not feel like posting here for a while, I also didn't knit a lot during summer. But I think I am back to both again.
Here are some socks in progress. I love having variety to choose from when picking up the needles ;-)
I remember being absolutely enthousiastic when starting them and I had thought taking part in another knit along would keep me knitting, but as I know now, it didn't help any. No problem, I can still enjoy knitting and wearing them on my own.
So here's the Tränendes Herz (bleeding heart) socks that I started as a kal. As ours in the back yard is a white variety I finally knew what to use that cream white yarn for.
Next are the Norfolk Rambler socks that I found in the back of the drawer and that I had completely forgotten about...
And - even one sock is already finished - plain stockinette toe ups for me, blueberries'n'cream.

Thank you for your lovely comments on our newest addition to the pack!
Here he is playing with his "nanny" Myrtille in the back yard. He makes a lot of progress in overcoming his fears. In the first days he would have run back into the house when he had heard any sound outside or seen a neighbour. Now he listens or watches for a bit then continues playing. It is good for him to have those fearless "sisters" around :-)
Thanks for visiting!
