Yesterday I turned 32 years old!
(Yes, there is a tiara on my head! I’m the queen on my birthday!)
As long as I remember myself, I was always nervous about getting older. Mostly about doing things so that I won’t regret not doing them when I’m older. Does it make sense?
The last year I have grown as a person. I try to live more in the moment, to be grateful, to smile every single day, to have only positive thoughts, when something bad happens to see it as a lesson and not to get upset for the little things.
The change was noticeable and I dare to admit that I’m happy!
So this year, it felt ok that time passed. It felt… normal! 🙂
Knitting has helped me find happiness more than anything.
It kept me sane, peaceful and calm. It took away my worries, problems and bright up my dark moments.
No wonder why I treated myself with yarn gifts 😀
I wanted to knit with more luxurious yarns forever but the yarn stores I’ve visited only had wool that I found itchy.
I thought about ordering online but I’m not comfortable buying yarn without touching it.
Couldn’t help also drooling over your merino projects.
About two weeks ago, I accidently found out the store Plectorium, here in Greece, with all those yummy yarns.
I announced F that he didn’t need to worry about what he’ll get me for my birthday! I knew what I needed!
I chose three skeins of yarn just to try them.
I didn’t want to get a sweaters amount and not like the feel.
One skein of Malabrigo Silky Merino in the Lluvia colorway.
It is a dream! It will make me the softest cowl ever!
I hand winded it on my thumb making a centre-pulled ball.
I saw how on Little Bobbins podcast. Thanks Dani!
One skein of Malabrigo Lace in the Cadmium colorway that lighted up my day!
I don’t wear shawls but I think I’ll start!
Such a bright color will be perfect for cloudy days.
And a self striping sock yarn!
Opal Best Friends collection.
I hope the finished sock will look that.
I also ordered aluminum DPN in size 2,5mm and 2,25mm hoping that I won’t break them knitting tight.
Oh, I don’t know which one will be the next to cast on….
I’m still searching for patterns.
If you want to suggest any one-skein pattern, I’ll be thrilled!
Thank you all for remembering and wishing for my birthday!
