Today I am taking part in the Grow Your Blog party hosted by Vicki from 2 Bags Full .
Over five hundred people have entered their blogs to take part in the fun, to make friends, to gain new readers and to find interesting blogs we love.
Expecting a few of these coming here I want to write a few words about me:
My name is Tina, I am 44 years old (for nearly another month), and I live in South West Germany, in a region called Pfalz (Palatinate), that is known for growing wine, fruit, vegetables, and a rather mild climate. I am a vegetarian so I can eat a lot of local produce. I speak German, English, and French, and I am learning Spanish.
In my spare time after work and on the weekends I love to be outside, to spend time with our four dogs, go for walks and runs and bike rides, to work in the little garden behind the house in which we have flowers, fruit and veggies, and a lawn for the dogs to run around.
I also love to knit and crochet and sometimes cross stitch, and recently I found my love for photography again.

I started blogging in 2005 (first blog post was on april 21 to be exact), as a log for my knitting in the first place. I had just found out about the SixSoxKnitalong where every two months a new sock pattern was released. I had read a few blogs first without having the urge to write one myself, but then it seemed a good way to show the pictures of my knitting.
I also had wanted to post some pictures of the dogs, and when I thought about what name to choose I came up with "hundgestrickt" that is explained above in my header.
In the beginning I only wrote in German, my native language, sometimes in English for international knitalong posts, or in French for a sweater knitalong with people in France. I also have tried to translate into both foreign languages, but that was just too time consuming, so I am sticking to international English. There is a translating tool button in the side bar for those not understanding English at all.
I hope you enjoy browsing my blog, seeing my dogs (all rescues from Spain/Greece/and local shelters for those that are no longer with us), discovering my surroundings and my garden, and having a look at my knitting and other crafts. You can choose from the labels in the side bar to get you to topics that you are interested in.

Have a good weekend, I will definitely spend part of mine visiting your blogs!
Thanks for coming over.
