As you can see from the pictures I have been doing a whole lot of knitting during the past couple of months. Now, there is finally a reason to knit stuff for someone else than myself and I can go crazy in cute baby patterns and tryouts and teddies.
The thing I like most about knitting baby clothes is, that it is so much quicker than if I were to knit a sweater for myself, so I really had fun trying out lots of new patterns and techniques. And I am far from done. I definitely see myself knitting on a more regular basis, now that there is a wardrobe that needs to be renewed every once in a while.

I had the pleasure of staying with Martin in his beautiful apartment in Hackney. So I felt right a home in my old neighborhood, between all the books and plants, bright light and a lovely new flatmate for a couple of days.

Afterwards we took a little round at Boxi to see if there was anything interesting at the flea marked, but it quickly got too cold.
The rest of the day was spend inside in the warmth, opening presents, watching movies and baking Galette des Rois. Result = one happy Frenchman.

Last year, I just made straight pieces, but this year I felt like taking on the challenge of the kransekage-tower - something a bit more festive - since we were going to kliché new years dinner.
In the end, I was quite satisfied with it, even though I had slight problems with getting it to harden in our gas oven. But I managed and they all fitted on top of each other. So next year, I will just have to focus on making it look prettier.

There was frost on the top of the roofs and a beautiful light in the whole apartment, and I made some pancake for the last brunch of the year.
Later we went to buy a couple of stuff with the rest of Berlin, who was getting ready to party, and I spend the afternoon baking.
In the evening we celebrated the new year with some friends in Weisensee and had a great start to 2017. I wish you all a happy New Year and hope that the next year will bring you joy and many happy moments.
