Knitting

Since I left Latvia to visit my parents in France, I realized that I barely touched my needles - except during the flight. And I haven't knit much since I came back too. To tell the truth, I've been busy trying new things, and enjoying some time outside - especially searching for wild mushrooms! So when I decided to pick up my knitting, I was a little bit frustrated. I was reading the notes that I had taken, when I realized that I was off 20 stitches - I had misunderstood the increasing section! Sigh. So after unravelling, I cast on Keynote for the second time, and underlined the important explanations on the pattern, just to make sure that I won't make the same mistake twice.

I've also been browsing Ravelry quite a bit, searching for some patterns to knit - as Christmas presents probably! I had already decided which yarn I'll be using, so it didn't take me too long to decide which of these two patterns I would choose (I chose the second one).

Reading

While in France, I felt the urge to explore my old bookself, and search for something to bring back with me to Latvia. After several readings, I still find Jane Eyre fascinating. I've also been reading sporadically Wild fermentation, and tried new recipes. I'd love to give a try to miso fermentation! And at last two digital books that I read on my laptop: Wildwood Chronicles, and Tales of Beedle the Bard.

Watching

I've just finished watching the last seasons of Game of Thrones & Orange is the new black. Just started watching Upstairs downstairs.
