Since I'm cutting down on my facebook time I thought the blog could be a good place to again share and collect all the projects I keep working on. Recently I got to know Amanda who also loves to knit and we discovered both of us had a common dream to do Knit Graffiti.
We have already put up a few pieces around the Fountain House where we hang about during the days. This Sunday we choose to move closer to the inner city of Lund scouting for good spots to pimp up.
Apart from the satisfaction of knitting and nice outdoorsy time, we got some taste for adventure through this harmless type of activism. I haven't thought through the exact message of it. It's a craft that is closely connected to women. Maybe it shows the importance of feminine qualities (who doesn't have to be gender specific) in our public spaces.
Perhaps the softness, color and thorough work of a knitted piece represents caring, understanding and patience decorating the dense and rough material underneath. Allowing us to embrace both structure and nurture as two important aspects of a prosperous life.
So for once I am quite early with my christmas preparations. I've bought almost all my gifts and wrapped them. Also the christmas cards is in the making. This year I have no theme whatsoever. Most of them are even in different styles. All due to the mood I'm in when making them.
This is not because I don't do anything else, even if it seems that way. But actually for the first time in my life, my daily schedule is to go to work and that means that on the weekends and after work I'm totally free. No school assignments and not as much panic over work I should do, which is an amazing feeling.
Also I catched the cold since friday and been staying at home monday - wednesday. Going back to work tomorrow and couldn't be more eager to do so. It's been too boring staying at home and even though I've been spending a few days spoiling the guinea pigs, feeling the christmas spirit and watching A LOT of tv I'm very much done with feeling like a total lazyass.
