Five things

Rachell wrote a Five Things Blog Post, calling upon her followers to do the same. I very much enjoyed reading that. And as I am a faithful follower … (so tempting to add an emoticon here, but I won’t).

Being the way it is, five things in my life could easily be five WIPs (sigh …) but that would be too easy I guess. Now let’s see:

First, I was pleasantly surprised the other day to see little flowers next to where I work. What ever they are called – supposedly they always bloom in winter. Brave little fellows, I’d say.

What is more, I was given the pattern by Caitlin, a blogger I feel like knowing forever, even though we “only” exchange mails or comments every now and than. Thanks Caitlin! And to all of you out there: have a look at her blog! Both – her knitting and writing – are a treat!

So far, only one sock is done and I am pleased with the outcome. I will have to knit the second though – not only for comfort but to take in all instructions.

And number five is for you Rachell: count me in when sharing jigsaw posts. I loved them as a child and I am still drawn to solving every puzzle there is – as long as it’s a good one (referring to quality not design).

Who’s next in blogging five things?

  1. Loved seeing your Five Things oh faithful one 😉 I will share my next jigsaw and the completed one which is underneath my ipad as I type. You’re in the jigsaw club too. Yippee it’s not just me.
    Ravensburger make really good quality products, I’ve long been a fan. I didn’t know they were German but it doesn’t surprise me!
