bye bye

yes my dear friends, i am saying bye bye to you all...
but only for two weeks:)
we are going to Norway for two weeks, and it will be great to see my family again. i am pretty sure i will not have time to blog anything while i'm away, but i do hope i will have some time to knit. i will not bring the Marius along, to heavy...and ryanair has baggage restrictions 15 kilo each only. so it's bound to be small projects only.

so this is my for today and the next few weeks, right now i am going to sit down and enjoy my morning coffee.... before i realy get on with packing the rest of our clothes!

bye bye and have a great couple of weeks! thank's for visiting me:)

good afternoon to you all!

I do hope you are having a lovely day, here in Scotland it's rather windy, but atleast my washing dries quick!

the last few days i have been busy knitting my marius, and someone asked for a photo to show how much i have as you can see, have started on the border.

i am very excited about the fact that i will try steeking for the first time ever. It has been my grandmother that has done this for me earlier..but i don't live close to her i need to be able to do this on my own.

it looks really easy to be honest, and i am sure it will be absolutely fine:)

Good morning everyone, how are you all doing? i have had a good morning with a cup of coffee and trying to get a decent photo of my finished crossover cardigan...BUT my arms just aren't long enough so you'll just see a bit of it.
You can get the idea of what it looks like anyway!
i am really happy with it, and it really keeps me warm:)
i have had a really grea weekend...first we did lots of gardening, and it felt soooo good to have a lawn again..and not tall grass!!
my arms were hmmm, well not allright after that, but i did manage to get quite a bit of knitting done on saturday eve:)
sunday it was Tramway to have a chat with the ladies. we were quite a few, and it was nice to meet several new people there..! unfortunetely i won't be abe to meet up with them until august..when we come home from our holiday in Norway.
another...12 days to go. i have already started packing some things. and today is the big tidy-up what on earth am i doing blogging?
before i go, i have to mention my new projecs. first it's the Marius and i'm almost up to the pattern border. i's almost as if i can't wait for the cold winter just so i can use it.
i do want some summer first anyway!
have a great knitting and crocheting week everyone!!

twirly scarf 2

hello everyone and good morning! i hope you have had a good weekend so far, me i have been good indeed. as you can see i have finished the secong twirly scarf. this one is for mother-in-law, for her birthday in November and i think this is something she might well like.

This everyone, is the lovely present that Nan and David at my lys gave me for my birthday .
i still haven't decided what to use it for..but i am sure something good will come out of it! maybe a wisp? i did want to make one for myself...i am not sure, anyone with a good idea?
About my crossover cardigan, it's not much to do now...i am almost finished with the first sleeve, and have done half of the lace insert of the secon sleeve. this lace pattern is rather when i get fed up i knit my Marius genser. I have actually finishied nearly half of the body part..and i am still not fed up with knit, purl, knit, purl, knit, far so good!
actually, it feels great to knit something and not be fed up with it. next week i will finish my crossover and then you can all see the picture:)
but for now, have a lovely week
