Yes, there was a birthday...a princess that turned 6

There were cake as you can see, and also 11 partybags....
In these partybages I decided I wanted to make chicks...easterchicks, as it was the last day of the Easter Holiday...And so be it. I made chicks...12 chicks...And they were all gone and given away before I remembered to take a photo!!!

Luckily for me...One girl didn't come to the party, so I have one chick left at home...And this is it 
Theother chicks had sewn on eyes, but this last got another kind..special eyes for the last chick. To remember how special birthday number six is. 

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Big hugs, Linn

Wip Wrestling

Oh, I have not forgotten....This month I am fighting WIP' the first thing on my list was the Spring forward socks...and yes...they are finished..! I started them in January, and they have been the thing I have been knitting when I was not at home...I was a Weight Watchers, Rosebuds and danceschool.
Very happy with the result, they are so comfortable, and I will probably make another pair of these socks. The wool was Elle sockwool
Needles .2.5 mm

Next project finishing are the easter chicks....they will be given away on Sunday April 18th. 
I have only one more chick to knit, and then I need to get the beak and eyes on and some stuffing..then the pics will be on! 

Hopefullt in the weekend:)

What I bought...

A few weeks ago I went across the city, on the other side of Glasgow to a place called Gourock...there thay have the loveliest's called Once a sheep, and I came home with these things......
The knit pro knitting needles are the best needles I have ever had.  I love them, and I have of course started knitting a new pair of socks using my new Fyberspates wool. 

I am using a pattern from Vis2Vas's sockbook called Angels Wear Socks...because they're worth it.the
  The pattern is called Shells.

Happy Easter to YOU!!
I hope you are having a really nice weekend with your loved ones. Here we started our holiday yesterday when the husbond took the day off work. We decided to go and check out David Livingstone's birth house. It was really interesting learning a bit more about him. 

I have also been busy knitting, and last week I finished this little baby cardigan for my step sister's newborn daughter Idun Serine.
I have used Stylecraft Life dk
Needles .4. mm
Mood: happy

And Once again , big congratulations to Astrid and Oeyvind , hope to see little Idun in the summer!

22.5 degrees

Oh I  do wish it was 22.5 degrees outside, but far from it these last few days. It has been snow and freezing cold wind and today the hail was upon us:(

So I had good use of my new scarf called 22.5 degrees and the designer is Martina Behm.

I have used King Cole Mirage, red and blue, and 4.00 mm knitting needles.

I love this scarf and will probably make more of these during 2010!
It's easter holiday, and I hope you have a really good easter weekend!!
