Weekly recap #8

I'm not sure I can call these weekly recaps at the moment ๐Ÿ˜… September has been tough to get through.

The leaves are turning though and autumn is in the air. I long for the golden hues in nature and the candlelight at night.

I have been busy in September though, so here's a recap. I...

... celebrated my three year wedding anniversary with Shaun.

... finished my Goldenrod sweater, but I still need to wash it.

... baked s'mores cupcakes.

... made meringues with the leftover egg whites and ate them all over the next few days ๐Ÿ™ˆ

... have worked on Williams Christmas calendar.

... have started Noams Nissehue, and I hope to have it finished in time for Christmas. 

I hope to have some more content other than the weekly recaps soon. I am working on a review of the Goldenrod sweater pattern and I am going to write a bit about starting up bead crochet.

Hi there!

... went to my dad's birthday celebration. Happy birthday on Tuesday, dad!

... bought the Advent Box from Little Box of Crochet. It's gonna be a yarny Christmas! ๐Ÿงถ

Review of Fiberfolk Roskilde

Hi there!

Last Saturday I went to the Fiberfolk wool festival in Roskilde with my dear friend Anna. Both of us happened to have our HP shopping bags bought in Primark with us! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

All I knew about it beforehand was that it's a wool festival for small makes, which means that small design businesses, hand dyers etc. can showcase their goods. 25 stall holders set up shop and with this being in Covid-19 times they had taken precautions to ensure people could browse and buy protected.

Some of the stalls were a bit too small for what they were selling. This was in particular some of the yarn stalls, where they would be a good size pre-corona (is that a thing?) but now, with everyone having to keep distance etc. it just seemed cramped. I didn't stay very long by those stalls. 


Weekly recap #6

A bouquet of purple flowers and in the background there are grey clouds, a red brick building and a green lawn with a football net.
Hi there!

I realise that there hasn't been much happening on the blog the last couple of weeks, but some of the reason for that is "revealed" in this weekly recap.

I am working on a few blog posts so my blog won't go quiet again, but I have just been a bit overwhelmed.

So without further ado, this week I...

... got a new job! It's at the same company, but I am moving from accounting to budgeting. It's going to be a challenge, but fun to try something new. I finished my education in accounting exactly 5 years ago on Tuesday, and that's the day I officially become a budget controller. Exciting times ahead for me!

... went to a wine tasting and tasted some quite nice wines. I also confirmed  to myself that I like red wine much more than white wine!

... finished a bead crochet bracelet. I'll write a blog post about it, where I'm going to include some really good ressources and tips I used for finishing my first bracelet. I'm very happy with how it turned out!

... had a playdate with my friend Ann-Sofie, where we tried out a new game I bought: Harry Potter: A year at Hogwarts. I'm not sure if I like the game yet, I need to try it a few more times to get a proper impression. We also played Quacks of Quedlinburg, which I enjoyed a lot!
