The crazy year that is 2013

Hello dear blogging friends! Despite the fact that I *was* planning on spending less time blogging, I didn't expect to write my first post of 2013 in November.... even I will admit that is a bit late! I'm not sure if anyone still hangs out around here or sees this in their feed, if you do, thank you so much for your loyalty!

Either way, let me tell you about a few things that have happened this year so far. Last Winter my big obsession were freeform crochet hats and whilst I am spending my time doing other things again as well, I still do love making those hats and have plenty of them that still need to be photographed and listed!

Late last year at some point I also finally finished my beekeeper's quilt, but after having used it a few days my worries came true and the knots just didn't keep the whole blanket together. It was rather devastating after having spent so much time on it, but I did start sewing the hexis together individually on all seams. I'm at this point about half way done and am fully intending to finish within the next few months. Although I can't say it's been a massive priority, as it is currently usable, just a few more seams to go the other direction, so not too bad.

Well, the really big thing this year has been that I got married to the best guy ever, my best friend and partner of 9 years! We had a lovely weekend of celebrations in my home country of Switzerland, followed by a cute little honeymoon in Paris. We were lucky to have some of our very closest friends come join us, despite lots of travel involved for some. We had friends from so many nations united, off the top of my head we had the UK, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Austria, the US, the Netherlands and Japan in attendance. Not bad for a group of 30 guests! :)

So yes, it's been a pretty eventful year for us already and there is more to come yet!

I'm so glad that you posted. I didn't remember that your home country is der Schweiz. We lived there two different years, and have visited many many many times. Still do! We lived in Berne. Feels like home every time I arrive. Love to hear about the yarns and I liked hearing about your year...congratulations and best wishes!

Congratulations! Glad to hear you're doing well, and sorry to hear that your beekeeper's quilt isn't! Hopefully those new seams will keep it together. =)

Thank you so much for your comments and congratulations! My parents are less than an hour from Berne, and no, not Zermatt, my branch are the Lauterbrunnen von Allmens. :D

And yes, I hope so too about the beekeeper's quilt.... it's been a very long term project already!
