Scrap Sunday: bare necessities

You are probably wondering why you haven’t heard from me in a while. Or probably you aren’t. In any case, I just came here to tell you that I am not able to post for another while. Because I am in internetfree land. Well internetdifficult land. I am currently in the middle of a 4 weeks sewing detox programme in the Black Forest in Germany. I meant to use this time to post about all those lovely things I made during a little sewing frenzy leading up to this detox stay. But uploading those pictures would take weeks. So I will wait and post them when back to civilisation.

However, as a good blogger, I do have a little Scrap project for you. I came here with a box of wool and needles. No one said anything about knitting detox. On the contrary, I thought it would be lovely to go back to knitting if I have to leave my sewing machine behind.

After a day or two here I realised that I often have nothing to carry keys, phone (to go to the only spot with reception, surprisingly near the Reception) and money so after a couple of days with a big cotton tote bag (initially my knitting bag), I knitted a small bag, using the scraps that I had brought for the children and their knitting fork)

Sorry for the star dust – it seemed appropriate for the idyllic Black Forest. And I am frankly just very proud of my recent discoveries on my phone. Well the little one showed me.

With my real knitting project, I did not get very far yet, due to a lack of time:

This is my project: a jumper for myself by Atelier Alfa.

This is how far I got in the last two weeks:

See you in a couple of weeks!
