Almost a year and a half since my last post. No notes, no explanations, I just kinda... vanished from the online knitting world.
I just couldn't post or knit anymore. It was just getting out of hand, taking too much place in my life, and my coward solution was to just let it go, to get rid of it all at once. I needed to cut the cord, get away from it. I stopped knitting for several months after that. A feeling of shame? Yes, maybe. It took me 18 months to really want to come back, to reopen this page. To my surprise, it was just as I left it, nothing had change.
I have changed. I became more mature, more calm. I now have a new approche to knitting. It was such a big and overpowering part of my life that I had to really start over to enjoy it again, take pleasure in picking up my needles and casting on. It doesn't stress me anymore. I learned to say "no".
Okay, enough with the explanations. I'm back, and I want to be back, so why dwell and try to justify it? I just missed this blog so much in the last month that I feel at peace now. So, let's look at what happened in the last year and a half.
I got the dream job in a publishing house. Litterature, poetry, intellectual and creative publications. I love my job, my coworkers. My loving boyfriend and I moved in an amazing appartment in a dead end, street level, with a (relatively) big private yard in the back. We've been here for a little over than a year now and we love it.
In fact, we love it enough to stay here and start... a family. Yes, a family. Here I am, with my 7 months pregnant belly. Our little boy is due on April 12th. We are absolutely thrilled!
Which leads me to what I knitted during my retreat for the online world. You can see me sporting my Elemental Boatneck Sweater, by Hannah Fettig, knitted in Knit Picks Comfy DK. It was knitted over the summer 2013 and got wore a lot. You can tell by the cat hair.
I've knitted other things, not a lot. I knitted when I wanted to, no pressure. Those projects are for other blog posts. And I played piano (a long love story with playing piano that I don't think I've ever talked about...), started watercolor... I really enjoyed myself.
I plan on blogging more, every week, or as the projects are finished and as I have things to post. I already have ideas, which is a really nice feeling to have. See ya :)
