Slowly, step by step a new rhythm is starting to find its way in my life. After a couple of months sitting, and since 2 weeks starting to learn how to walk again, I’m finally able to walk without crutches again. So, even though it is going terribly slow, I can go out for a walk with Fleur, which is such a joy. I just can’t tell you how much I missed this.
So, you would think that 3 months of sitting, would give me the opportunity to make lots and lots of thinks, but well, I hardly did anything but read. More than 20 novels have found their way to my bookcase. Some by authors I already knew (Gioconda Belli, Evely Waugh, Virginia Woolf and Gabriel Garcia Marquez) , but also quite a few new discoveries (James Salter, Siri Hustvedt and Romain Puertolas).
Because I was asked to show someone the things I made with crochet , I made this mosaic, and I think it pretty much shows what I’m about with crochet, doesn’t it?
Something which is going to change, is that I probably will spend less time on crafting, because I’m going back to school. Well,…., sort of. I’ve enlisted for a study in Cultural Sciences at university. It’s something I’ve always wanted, and in fact already started over 20 years ago, but unfortunately had to quit. New chance.
So at the moment, I’m looking and trying to find a new way of spending my time, to find a new balance between all activities. Guess it will take some time.
Last but not least a little preview of what is going to be my new cardigan.
It’s the first time I’m knitting top-down, and it really is a nice technique. When it’s finished I’ll give more details about yarn and pattern.
