I really have been neglecting my journal.

I've tried to read now and then... been neglecting that as well at times. The truth is that I really need to cleanup my friends list, I have loads of random stuff in there and cannot find the friends entries anymore, become lazy about it... etc. It is such a task, though :( but I have to do this.

Anyway. I haven't been updating. Not much has been happening.

Loki has been growing up (slower lately, I think he will just be a small cat anyway, like his mom), and kept up, or multiplied the naughtiness! He is hyperactive. But oh so adorable. He sleeps in (as in IN) bed with us everyday, purring away.

I have been working a bit more in the workshop. Little by little, trying to make a habit out of it. I need physical training for this, especially my poor joints. So I have to be careful not to overdo it, especially the hammering for long periods of time.
I have ordered a comfortable bar stool, that can be regulated from a pretty low to a very high setting. This will help in the workshop, mostly for repoussé. I will take pictures when it arrives.

I also have been baking... what the hell!? I am not at all a fan of sweets... but I have been baking these cakes... they are not too sweet at all, spongy and nice. I have been making coconut and almond cake, I will post the recipes if anyone is interested. Very easy, you use a yogurt as measure, so it is really easy to memorise.

Hhmh, what else. Ah, yes, I have started designing and publishing my own knitting patterns :) this is very exciting. I have three patterns for sale, and they have generated much more attention and sales (still very modest though) than I expected.

Yesterday I uploaded my first free pattern, already so much people have favourited it, and even 3 people have cast it on!! :O
I wanted to upload free patterns first, but in the end that is not how it turned out... so I have now three paying patterns (two pairs of mittens and a cowl) and one free (a shawl):

Click to go to my Ravelry store.

I also have my patterns here in my knitting blog.

This is really so exciting! :D
