I didn't have to dream of a white xmas

Untitled
I spent 8 days in Luleå!!!

Untitled
It was amazing to see my family.

Untitled
And the town was all white.

Untitled
I will show you more pictures, but first - Happy New Year!

A hello to say I'm safe

Just checking in to let you know that Johan and I are OK. Thanks to all who have written to me with concern.
Terrible things happen around the world every day and yesterday it happened in Berlin.
I wish this wouldn't happen to anyone.

I will be among people I love for quite some time over the holidays and this blog will be silent for a while.

Love to everyone.

The club Kater Blau's poster for NYE is gorgeous.

Glad to see this imbiss open again.

Let's take a swim.

Need ideas for holiday gifts? I have some stuff available in the shop:

Slippers

If you are interested in some of the prints I used to sell, I still have some left - just drop me an email.

Thank you all so much for supporting my work! Might be good to know: You are guaranteed that no one gets harmed in the process of making the products as they are all handmade by me :)

Wake up!

So far this winter, I haven't been able to get out of bed until around noon. It means I only get 4 hours of daylight and this year, for the first time since I became a grown-up, I am not getting depressed from the darkness. 2016 has been a year of a lot of struggle, so lack of daylight is piece of cake. Looking forward to getting up earlier though, as I'm most efficient in the morning.

Pictures from a walk around the neighbourhood today, to boost myself with light (better safe than sorry). Prevention prevention.

Giveaway with Sandra Juto & We Are Knitters

Untitled
Look at all this goodness.

Untitled
And the finished We Are Knitters classic sweater. It's so soft and warm.

Untitled
These can become yours, read about it at the end of this post.

Untitled
Slippers made of the same soft wool as the sweater.

Untitled
Giveaway time!

Untitled
The colours.

I teamed up with We Are Knitters again for a giveaway and discount code for my readers. Working with this high quality yarn is such a pleasure, what I love about WAK is that they only work with natural materials. I have made 3 pairs of Wrist Worms with their yarn:

Black & White mixed pair made of 100% wool
Salmon pair made of 100% cotton
Emerald green pair made of 100% merino wool

for A GIVEAWAY (fill in the form to enter). We Are Knitters will pick a random winner who will get all of this in her/his mail. Included will also be the We Are Knitter's knitting kit for the classic sweater (which I made in a couple of days and thought was so fun and easy to make). Update December 13: The giveaway is now closed. Thank you for participating!

My readers also get a 20% discount in We Are Knitters web shop with discount code WRISTWORMS4WAK. The code is valid until December 31, 2016.

Sunday at home

Untitled
Got up very late today, the bed was so inviting that I stayed in it until noon.

Untitled
Fixed some lamps over the kitchen table and then made brunch. Sauerkraut is my best friend. Topping it with feta cheese is yummy.

Untitled
Haven't put up any decorations yet. Time flies.

Untitled
When did my grandmother move in?

Untitled
Look, there is her perfume - Poison. I always loved the scent of snus in this perfume.

Now it's time to work. Next week I will host a very very nice giveaway, hope you will like it!

Pet Shop Boys, Boxi, Wrist Worms

Untitled
Went straight to Boxi this morning, just got home and it's nice and warm here.

Untitled
It's been a busy week. I've been to a very nice dinner with Away.

Untitled
And I've seen the Pet Shop Boys at Tempodrom, such an amazing venue. Saw New Order there a few years ago.

Untitled
I was dancing my ass off.

Untitled
Been taking long walks as well. And apart from that I've been sitting down making many many pairs of Wrist Worms. Thank you so much for your orders! If you still don't know what to give to your beloved ones for the holidays, I can recommend giving warm hands - you find lots and lots of different colours of Wrist Worms in the shop.

Wish you all a good weekend.
