An ongoing project

November 18, 2015



Seaglass, a ‘free’ pattern on Ravelry. Ideal for handspun.

A project that was started to dispel the gloom an doom and horrible feelings created by Friday the 13th, November, 2015.


SwedishIngrid is not on Facebook

And is that a problem? Is that a shame?


A lot of people are on Facebook nowadays.

But it feels naked to me. I am a private person and whilst I have chosen to be online and share my Life since the 90s, one way or the other, Facebook does feel funny.

What do you think?

Ohoy Dear World,

Catching up with myself.

That is news ­čÖé this IS news. Being a person that is almost always on the go, having quiet periods, and intense periods of nothing but WORK, y’know, the Holy Work, catching up isn’t all that bad.

Modular knitting small shells good for anything you want to knit


Revisiting, and thinking, this is useful, good and applicable to all the small bit n pieces that I have in my stash.

Not that I didn’t know that from before, it is just that sometimes ‘stuff’ as in Life, the Universe and Everything gets in the way.


Attended a corrosion prevention conference today and feel empowered. Yes, we are on the right stuff and doing well.


A lady who made me coffee asked me about my stay in Australia and my accent, and it was all good, she complimented me telling me that I am easy to understand and that I try. She felt very awkward if she didn’t understand and had to ask again.

I left clutching my double strength coffee and thinking that conversations on the strength of coffee unites the world.

Same with knitting and spinning.



Moving here…
