Birthday Gifts of Life

Knitting Blog

Happy Wednesday and Happy 2018! It feels so good to be back to this space – I haven’t been exactly away, just a little bit behind the scenes – I’ve been knitting non-stop these days and also working on some website updates that you will hopefully see soon!

Today I am celebrating my birthday just the way I love – waking up at dawn, working, calling my dear ones to say “I love you” and “Thank you for everything” and slowing down today, just a little bit to feel grateful for one more year in my life – I do not take it for granted!!

Also I want to share with you some special for me images from my lonely December walk, when the wind was blowing, the sky was gray, but the ocean was so beautiful that it took your breath away – this is truly my happy place…

May Textures and Colors

Knitting Blog Textures

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Today I am sharing with you nature’s textures and colors that I was inspired by this month. I decided to do it regularly, creating a visual diary that I and, hopefully, you will come back to whenever you need a smile on your face or a reminder that life is beautiful in all its forms 🙂 I am so grateful to knitting for teaching me how to notice small little things and see the beauty in details. I hope this short post will bring some joy to your Sunday morning!

Timeless sea breezes,
that for aeons have
blown ancient rocks,
you are purest space
coming from afar…

Have a beautiful day!

Gifts of Life. Inspiration.

Happy Monday! This Saturday was my first real day off in a very very long time and I allowed myself to stop running for a while, look around and accept all the gifts of life that surround me. I would love to share with you these little gifts that I “collected” during the last weeks that have been inspiring me and making me happy.

Textures of nature. I can look at the rock patterns forever – mesmerizing details!

Favorite photographer of a month is definitely Dylan Furst (@fursty) – his images wake something inside of me and inspire me in so many ways!

Music. My find of the month is magical Julien Baker and her “Sprained Ankle” album – it feels like her voice is reaching inside of you and taking out the best. Very deep and moving!

Knitting. I’ve just finished a very big project and happy to move forward with my Moeke 2017 collection. New cozy sweater is on the needles! It it took me two dozen swatches to come up with the idea that I love, so right now I am really enjoying the actual knitting process. I don’t know how I will wait until August to share it with you, but the good news is that I have some fun summer projects planned.

I hope you enjoyed my little gifts of life and maybe will borrow some of them, just to make life brighter 🙂

Have a wonderful week!
