Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017


I don’t think that most people will remember 2016 fondly. A lot happened last year and looking back a lot was bad. From big international political events, like the US election, the bombing of Aleppo and numbers of terrorist attacks, to smaller, personal events. For me, the year started with the unexpected death of my dad. It was a big shock and something I am still dealing with. At the same time I moved to Leeds and started working from home, which was at the time ideal and allowed me to beginning designing but is now something I don’t feel good about. However, not everything was bad. My brother got engaged, my mum moved to a lovely new flat, I moved to Yorkshire and I started designing knitting patterns. It has been one of my greatest pleasures to start on this journey and I can’t wait to continue.

That said, I hope 2017 will be less turbulent and give more people hope again for a better live and future. Personally, I hope that I can continue my journey as a designer. I have a lot of ideas I hope to turn into reality and would love to create patterns and content that will bring a lasting joy and have a positive impact on people’s lives. I am very excited about all the opportunities to learn and grow and share knowledge that the new year will bring and really want to try to give something back to the community of knitters and makers who I have learned from in the last year and who are a constant source of inspiration and motivation to keep doing what I love.

I am also very much looking forward to my brother’s wedding, time spent with friends and family, endless knitting and discovering new yarns, and hopefully also some more travelling.

I wish you all the best for the new year and hope your (knitting) dreams and wishes come true!
