ooooh!!! it's so upsetting, i am mainly knitting rather big things such as shawls..and i feel that three big shawls are enough at one time...but i am so eager to start another one..the "sin-fru" shawl/stole..but i feel that i need to finish mystic water first.

i suppose i oughta finish my january hat too, before it's ..ehhh february and time for another hat. And i guess in a few days it's time for a new pair of socks in the meantime..i will do my best to do a little of MW every day! i am trying to do most of my housework before i need to take my daughter to the nursery, and that way i have some lovely knittingtime all to myself! we are only speaking about just over 1 hour but still....i will have some photos soon enough, i hope!!

aa aa aaaa!!! det er saa dumt, jeg holder paa aa strikke nesten bare store ting saann som sjal...og jeg synes at tre store sjal er nok aa strikke paa en jeg har saa lyst til aa begynne paa et til, "sin fru" sjal... men jeg foeler at jeg boer bli ferdig med MW sjalet foerst.

jeg burde vel bli ferdig med januar lua ogsaa foer det er tid for ehhh..februarlua!!Og det er vel bare et par dager foer det er tid tilaa begynne paa februarsokene ogsaa! jeg skal gjoere mitt beste for aa strikke litt paa mw hver dag! jeg forsoeke aa gjoere unna mesteparten av husarbeidet foer jeg maa gaa til barnehagen, saan at jeg kan faa lit strikketid , helt alene i huset. det er bare snakk om en time, men alikevel...jeg har nok noen bilder snart..haaper jeg..!

i have tried something new, so here's a ring i made before christmas, i lovee making it, and there will be more coming up during the year!
jeg har proevd noe nytt, saa her er en ring jeg laget foer jul, det var kjempegoey aa lage den, saa det kommer til aa bli flere i loepet av aaret!
Fiona's mittens...well the first one without a thumb anyway! i didn't know it was that simple to make them, will have to do more and maybe in the end i'll manage to get rid of the little spaces between the needles..?
Fionas votter...iallefall den foerste og uten tommel! jeg visste ikke at det var saa lett aa lage dem, jeg maa nok lage flere og kanskje at jeg klarer aa bli kvitt den "renna" som kommer mellon pinnene..?


after trying to get this picture off my phone for weeks, finally it's here! this is my christmas pressie for my aunt..the Wisp! i love it, and want to make one for myself..someday..! am busy with other stuff! during the holiday i managed to make a baby sachiko(?) wrap cardigan for my newborn (step) niece! i am hoping for a photo soonish!
there will be more updates during the next week i pay attention here!!

etter aa ha forsoekt i flere uker aa faa dette bildet fra mi=obilen min hit, gikk det endelig. detter er julegaven jeg lage til min tante..Wisp! synes den er saa fin og vil lage en til meg selv... en dag..! er saa opptatt med andre ting akkurat naa. i ferien fikk jeg strikket en baby sachiko(?) wrap cardigan til min nyfoedte (ste)niese! jeg haaper aa faa bildet paa plass snart.
