I feel guilty…

… because only my Big man is working and because it is still a hard task to find a job for me nowadays … and even if I manage to save money by crafting (for ex. I was lucky because I had spent only 10 for my tee yarn, 10 balls in total…. Katia had it on sale…) and I’m very careful about spending it (like buying boots which I will wear for the next three or four years – because I always wear the same shoes and this is the period of my keeping them intact – for 87 instead of 125 …. ), I can’t avoid to feel guilty….  I feel guilty because I saw a larger sum than usual melted in my hands and today I bought a book for my own pleasure only …. for 16 …..

Money well spent indeed… I know that many of you will agree with me, but I know that I will feel guilty for the next five or six days….

Oh, I wish life were a bit easier sometimes…..

My new shawl and mitts…

Hello, my dear friends!

The holidays are over and the new year has started and I’m back to craft again!!!

Yippee!!!!

Ok,I know, I’m insane…..

Well, here are my first FOs of the year to prove that 🙂 I knitted myself a Nurmilintu shawl and a pair of mitts with thumb, first one ever, both following the patterns by my favourite Raverly designer, Heidi Alander.

Aren’t the colour shades of this yarn nice…? 🙂 This is my Mum in Law’s  Xmas gift 🙂 well, to be precise, she gave me some money and I made that money become a nice goodie…. he he 🙂 And guess where I bought the beauty I’m wearing…. in Katia’s store, of course…… ❤ ❤ ❤

The above items were not the only thing I’ve crafted lately….. my BM gave me a wonderful gift for Xmas…. maybe it is too much for me, but I have to admit that I’m enjoying it so awfully much….. look from where I’m reading the pattern on the below photo….
