My name is Tina, I am born in '69, 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 five 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 patch lawn.
I also love to knit and crochet and sometimes cross stitch, and some time ago I found my love for photography again. Lately I started to play around with some paracord to create leashes and collars for the dogs.
And that's about it what I share here.

I also had wanted to post some pictures of the dogs, and when I thought about what name to choose I came up with the word "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 English that I think of as THE international language. There is a translation tool button in the side bar for those not understanding English at all, knowing that those online translations can be weird, but at least you get the gist of what I am saying.
