What shall I say?!
Repeat my big words from 1 1/2 years ago, my announcement I would be coming back, back then?!
Or keep it a little more demure like half a year ago? Telling you I really wanted to get my ravelry pages updated and therefore needed to post pictures of finished knits here on the blog first...?
All is still true, yet all I managed to do in the meantime was taking those lazy iPhone photos and post them on Instagram.
But... I still feel that there is something missing when I'm not blogging and I also did get a new camera this summer and am eager to take pictures and share my view of Japan with you again, so it seems obvious, yet again, to announce my comeback.
Hello, I missed you!
And: I made a sweater (or some more) in the meantime.
It's Enchanted Mesa by Stephen West, but in a boring/ more practical shape. Knitting through my stash (Stash), having a lot of fun using leftovers and odd (Oddity) gems that would otherwise most likely have slept there until the end of time because they were heavily variegated, pink or sparkly...
And please feel free to start humming David Bowie's Space Oddity right now, I did the same for the last 12 days (since I have been casting on)(earworm!!!).
If you saw my photos on Instagram you know that after completion this sweater turned out to be in need of major surgery in order to get rid of one stripe right in the middle, but here it is, all well and I am quite happy with the result.
Nice to be back, once more.
