My #MakeNine2021 was kind of “catastrophic”. Well, it wasn’t after all because I didn’t really care. It was my first Make Nine, and I made the list in just a day. So it’s no surprise I finished only two planned designs. That’s why I wanted to choose wiser for my #MakeNine2022 and started thinking and rethinking a few months ahead. The result of 6/9 finished designs is an achievement compared to the previous year! How did it go, and how do I like the finished projects?
I had never been a big sock knitter until I discovered 9" circulars and forethought heel construction. With that discovery, I began a whole new adventure and the book 52 Weeks of Socks happened to be my map. I got the book for my birthday in June from my mum, who was looking at the photos as I was leafing through the pages. Then she pointed at the Hestia Slippers, and I immediately knew I had to knit them for her birthday in August.
These days, but one year ago, my husband and I were hiking and walking through Denmark. We saw lovely beaches and cliffs, green roofs and lighthouses, and even a desert. We visited not just Skagen, the place where the Baltic and the North Sea meet, but also two gorgeous yarn shops – Sommerfuglen in Copenhagen and Isager in north Denmark. One year later, I have two Traigh shawls and one Oska hat made from these Danish yarns!
Terranean refers to planet Earth, as I am a geographer. It also includes Tera, a diminutive of my name. And I am a knitter and sewer. That's what Terranean Stitch means.
