I have to say, and I think agreement is unanimous, that 2020 has been a heck of a year. I’m not too keen to assume 2021 will be any better, in case it says “hold my beer!”
For our family this has been a year of tremendous change. A few months ago my hubby and I decided that it was time to relocate our little family to the UK. It was a hard decision to make, but once it was a definite we started putting events in motion that will change our lives permanently. M is already in England (he is a British citizen, so it was very straightforward for him) and I am getting everything concluded that I need for my visa, our cube has been packed and sealed with the contents we will be taking, and the dogs’ documents are also underway. Presently I am so busy with paperwork that I haven’t yet had time to be fully excited, and I am experiencing a sense of loss too. I don’t think you leave this country, or this continent, without experiencing big feelings. Every day is a whirlwind of getting things done. I’m totally focused on that.
I have a few other things happening too. I’ve decided to start officially designing my own patterns. I’m always working on something, so I have tons of ideas. My first official pattern was published in Issue Two of Jaarn Magazine, which is the brainchild of the multitalented Bren Grobler. I was proud of my work being published and well received. The first official pattern was a simple market bag.

My next pattern will be a cute amigurumi pattern coming out in the next issue. I’m also working on documenting my patterns so I can sell them on Etsy and Ravelry. Keep any eye out for these coming soon.
