Det er december (jeg tror næppe, at jeg er alene om denne erkendelse, men måske mere alene i at være overrasket?). Der er godt gang i de sociale aktiviteter, hemmelighedskræmmerier, nissedril, god mad og almindelig hverdagstravlhed. Her i huset holder vi meget af december, men det er også en hård måned.

It is December (I don’t think, I’m alone in this realisation, but perhaps alone in being surprised?). There is full swing in the social calendar, the secret and not so secret stuff, Christmas build up (and high expectations from the kids), good food, and normal everyday being busy. In this house, we really love December, but it’s also always a challenge.

En måde at kapere de mange ting er at kaste sig over noget strik. Tilbage i november nåede jeg omkring [g]uld’s pop-up butik i København – rene lækkerier så langt øjet (og lokalet) rakte. Jeg fik kriblen i fingrene og kom hjem med en lille bunke skatte, som nu er i gang med at blive omsat til en nissehue af den mere afdæmpede slags. Jeg glæder mig meget til at se om den strikkede virkelighed kommer til at ligne den ide, jeg går rundt med i hovedet. Men sådan er det ofte med strik og nye design. Desuden er den sjov at strikke og absolut afslappende i denne hektiske måned.

One way to cope with all this is to dive into some (new) knitting. Back in November, I managed to swing by [g]uld’s pop-up store in Copenhagen – pure luxury in every corner of the room. I got the well known designer’s itch, and it resulted in me coming home with a little pile of treasures, which I’m now turning into a Christmas elf hat of the more subtle kind. I’m really looking forward to whether the knitted reality will look anything like the idea, I have in my head. But that’s normal with knitting and new designs. Besides, it’s great fun to knit and quite soothing in this whirlwind of a month.
