I have really been enjoying learning 'Nalbinden' or viking single-stitch knitting. After making a few different pouches, I decided to try my hand at making a winter hat: this starts with a tight spiral at the top and is continued down the sides without a pattern - following intuition for size and shape. Most winter hats don't fit me now that I have dreads, so I thought this would be the perfect project to do ..
It took me a few days to make it and I really, really love the way it turned out. I chose the colour grey because my hair is slowly turning grey and I thought it would be a good match in the long-run. Seeing my vision is a sustainable lifestyle, I think a hat like this could last for at least 10 years if cared for properly, being 100 % wool and all. And if I don't keep my dreads that long, then I can easily shrink it down to size in the washing machine to fit a non-dread head ..

This weekend, I discovered how I can be my own number one fan, my own inner supporter and that this is actually alot easier than any of us have been made to believe. Did I tell you that I love and believe in myself? Well, right now I do! And it feels like the most natural thing in the world and I intend to keep practising every day until feeling this way becomes the most natural thing in the world to feel ..
My DREAM is to live on the earth in a way that deeply nourishes and satisfies my SOUL - living SIMPLY and being FULLY who I AM.
This blog is my virtual space for creating that dream - a place where inspiration, ideas, quotes, articles and photo's belonging to that dream, are kept close. It is also a personal space for recording the most important moments of this life-long LOVE JOURNEY back to the LAND.
