hello, and good morning to you once again!
i must admit i never thought i'd be back this soon, but indeed i am:) and i am very happy about that.

so..i did go to my lys for some more wool, and i found this...Rowan silk wool dk , the colour is called porcelain. and i had already planned on making these, the emerald green handwarmers
and i found out that they are SO easy to make..and as this is a chrismas present for my sister-in-law to be-Nancy..i want a pair for myself. next time i'm at Glasgow knit and stitch, i will try to make a pair;) hopefully i'll get the time..unless i blether to much that is.

the wool is gorgeous by the way!

And i seem to remember somthing about a lace project...and that i was going to update you on that...weeeeeell: After making these green handwarmers, i did start. i have made a start on the Flower Basket Shawl. I have had the pattern for ages, and now i have started. seems fairly easy to do, so far:)
I have no idea when i will have it finished. but for the Marius i am making, i have nearly finished the first arm. when the second arm is finished i will finish the body bit. only the top to do on it anyway!

oh another thing...we've had summer holidays for nearly two months, and the kids are back at the nursery for two days..and today there's a strike...Great!!! we're at home today, and we're bored!

have a good week everyone!

good evening everyone, the day is nearly over, only one more hour left of today, and in Norway it's actually midnight. i hope you all will have a great week, and that you really enjoy yourselves.

i have had this little neckwarmer project on the needles, and i finished it today and i figured i might as well put it in the blog now, because i won't have time tomorrow...i'm am SO going to my lys for some wool. now that i finished one project, i might as well start another one!!

it will be something lacy, just need to figure out what!!! i already know what wool to use..jamieson's of shetland and the colour is very pale lilac. i will let you know what i decide...

i'd better go now, it's really getting late for me, so bye bye for now, and i will be back soon:)

Lise's blanket

hi everyone, and good afternoon to you all. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I hope you are all well, as i am:)
Here you can see the newly finished baby blanket for little baby Lise, she's must be close to one month old by now. I adore the colours, and i hope the mum likes it too! in a few days it will be on it's way to Belgium where baby Lise lives with her mum, dad and two brothers:) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
now, about my other things on the go...when i finished the blanket i immidiately started knitting a neckwarmer for myself. i am usinn Viking Frøyagarn. i love it to bits, and i think i will use this neckwarmer alot!!! I bought it at Karmin a huge lovely shop in my hometown Kristiansand. next time i am there, i will definetly get some more of this viking garn!!
about my absolutely lovely holiday "at home" , we did so much, went to the Kristiansand Zoo
and amusementpark, went boating, went on Hamresanden beach, went for a swim in the pool, had bbq's, went to our holiday house(hytte) in Eiken and stayed over one night. ..the only bad thing was that my brother had to leave for China/Beijing to work. he left on monday and we had arrived only on saturday, he returned on friday morning, and we went back to scotland on saturday at noon. we got to see him a bit atleast. and the greatest news this sumer is that he is engaged to be married to the lovely Nancy:) I am hoping to hear a weddingdate soon guys!!!
Not to forget, i am actually knitting more than a neckwarmer, i have done just a bit more on my marius, and my goal is to have it finished by september, and ready to wear! can't wait..oh..and here comes the's pouring doon oot there! Lucky that we have already been down to mil's with the fishy-snack for Tango the cat..and we are home before it started.! hurrah!
Now my dear people, i am off to get a cuppa! hugs from me, and come back soon :)
