Sommerstrickereien 2016 - 3 Tücher und 1 Paar Socken

Strickgeflüster KW 33 :: Urlaubsstrickereien ::

Nun sind drei Urlaubswochen auch schon fast vorbei. Seufz. Die drei Wochen waren gefüllt mit Besuchen bei den Familien, einem wunderbaren Campingurlaub im verschlafenen Westerwald und viel, viel Zeit zum Ausspannen und Stricken. Für Stricker gibt es ja kein schlechtes Wetter, nur mehr Zeit fürs Hobby 😉 Wir waren dieses Jahr das zweite Jahr in Folge Read More

Summer (vacation) has come and gone

Today is already the last day of my 3 weeks summer vacation. Tomorrow little Mr. T’s daycare will open its doors again and Ms. Nike is already attending summer project at her school. How can three weeks be gone so quickly? It feels like we didn’t do anything but at the same time we got Read More

Easter eggs on twigs

Easter Impressions

  With kids the Easter holidays are quite the chocolate and egg filled affair. This year we visited my husband’s family in Hesse and enjoyed some nice countryside and peace and quite while the kids got entertained by the grandparents. Not entirely without stress but mostly a win-win situation. I got to crochet on my Read More

Berenice for Berenike

Vacation time is long past, school holidays are over tomorrow and the regularly scheduled life is about to begin anew. I can honestly say that I am quite happy for school to start again after the customary 6 weeks hiatus. While “vacation” always sounds so nice in the beginning it does certainly come with its Read More

Knitting on the Road

Visiting family for us means at least a couple of hours on the road at the best of times. Or in case of my in laws it means more than 400 km which can add up to 4 to 5 hours in the car. Thanks to the ingenuousness of Apple products at least Little Girl Read More

Congrats, GeekSpeed 🙂 The autocross tournaments and the lovely spring weather provided ample opportunity to try out my new zoom lens, Read More

Capturing Light

I’ve been content to snap pictures with our very reliable little point ‘n shoot Fuji Finepix camera for a few years now. It made more than adequate pictures most of the time and in most standard situations. But I’ve been longing for the digital SLR experience for quite some time now. I loved taking pictures Read More

Holiday Impressions

This year we’re spending our holidays mostly at home enjoying home, garden and the immediate area. Between work and our motor-sports hobbies we didn’t get to spend nearly enough time relaxing at home this year. And it gives me the time to throughly dive into some knitting and spinning. Here’s some pics that give a Read More

Team GeekSpeed

Oh my, it’s been a more than a month since I wrote something here. Time is flying. When I’m not working or knitting I’m playing support team and pit stop crew for DH. He’s doing autocross competitions. What’s autocross, you ask? Well, here’s what the international Wikipedia has to say about it: Autocross is a Read More
