A while ago @inarho tagged me for #20factsaboutme, and with all the new followers over the last couple of days, this seems like the perfect time!Here we go: •I learnt how to knit so early I don't remember learning it. But I remember knitting clothes for my dolls in kindergarten. •I *love* hand dyed yarn!
•I'm woolergic, and can hardly wear natural wool. Merino all the way for me!
• I didn't wear pink for about 20 years. My mother dressed me in pink until I started buying my own clothes. It has taken until now for me to feel slightly comfortable in something slightly pink. •My hair used to be long because it just grows so fast. •I cut my hair last autumn so I could donate it for wigs for cancer patients. •After chopping off my long hair I suddenly don't care about hair colour anymore. It's like, it won't take 5 years to grow out, so let's have some fun with it!
•I have been on sick leave with heavy fatigue for almost 3 years now 😪
•Just before my fatigue knocked me off my feet, I finished my PhD in early Irish law. •I've lived abroad for about 1/3 of my life ❤️ I will always count myself as a Galway girl 💚🍀💚
•I collect languages. I've learnt about 15, but most of them are dead languages. •I really want to learn Russian, Sami and Japanese. I've no clue why, but those are on my list (once my head starts working again) 👍🏼
•I'm currently on a restrictive diet where I'm not allowed dairy, eggs, soy, wheat, peas, beans, nuts, and minimal sugar and yeast. So far I'm down 11kgs. Still hasn't helped for joint pain, migraines or fatigue though..
•I used to play handball and football. Goalie all the way!
• I have an older brother, who's a brilliant musician. He will probably gloat, but I'm pretty proud of him!
•My favourite place on earth is our cabin in Northern Norway 💙
•If I could travel anywhere in the world right now, I'd probably go to Mexico or Australia. •I've been so blessed to get to know so many wonderful people through Instagram, and even get to meet so many of them in real life!
•Knitting is my coping mechanism. •I really, really love turquoise 😂 .
