2010 January

I've spent an hour today going through old posts and comments - somebody left a comment with a question on an old post, I was going to answer but I've got no idea which post was it. So, here we go.
I was hoping I can see all comments by date, but somehow blogger is incapable of this sort of advanced feature.
On a different note I think I want to keep this blog alive - the experience of revisiting was quite good. Trying to remember how the last half of 2009 went: lots of trips and hiking in the Dales and the Peak District, difficult summer back home and a very complicated end of the year.

I did some knitting, mainly to keep sane, this is my last FO - finished in December last year.

The pattern is called Demi and it's from Rowan Vintage. Very popular on Ravelry. I love the neckline style and the buttons - I am going to use it again for the next sweater.
I bought the yarn from Beaverslide Dry Goods, from Montana, the colour is Lake McDonald and to be honest I can't wait to order more.
Not because I could not find yarns in England but because the experience was so positive all around I don't feel like trying anything else: very soft texture, no change in size after washing and extremely warm. I hate being cold, and this sweater is the warmest thing I've ever had.
It took me through the so called winter.

This being the first post for 2010 - just hope we'll all have a good year.

It seems that it was a "complicated end of the year" for everyone. Sa aveti un an mai vesel, cu sanatate si noroc!
