Right and wrong

Over the last few weeks I have gotten involved in something that seems to mean alot to me.
It's a peson that I do not know at all, but over the last weeks I have been reading the news  and looking at all evidence and there is in my mind no doubt that he has been innocently jailed.

His name is Joshua French and he has been in a prison in Congo for nearly 5 year. At the moment he is really ill with Posttraumatic Stress Syndrome, and he has to sleep in the hall in the prison on a matress.He doesn't even get a bed,he sleeps among the cockroaces and rats.

This is just not right, I am a hundred percent certain that he has not been spying on Congo for Norway, he has not killed his best friend either. But no matter what, it is not the correct way to treat anyone. Everybody has a right to be treated humanely, everybody. Black or white, it doesn't matter.

It really upsets me, not just for Joshua being there as an innocent man, but all the other prisoners too. Although they DO have beds to sleep in, the prison is apparently one of the worst in the world. And I can not believe it's the way to treat anyone. I do hope the DemocraticRepublic of Congo can change their ways, see that the honest path is the right one, not just money money money.It's maybe easy for me to say,but it has to start somewhere. The human right must have a more important role in society. Also here in the west , all is not perfect. We must all strive to make the world a better place, a fairer place.

If you are interested in the case, there are several goups on Facebook,if  you search for Joshua French, several groups will pop up. I did a search myself and that is how I got a bitmore involved.

FreeFrenchandMoland  is the family website, it's in both English and Norwegian. Please do have a read, it's imporant stuff people.We can't just sit and wait for him to die, which will happen if he doesn't get any kind of help.

Hair Feb

Oh wow. I must say it has grown quite a bit. This is my unstretched hair 3 weeks into a new Hair Project.

You can see that half of my hair is smooth and the bottom half is a bit dryer looking and maybe a bit frizzy too. But the length is definetly getting closer to  hip.

 Not a solid hip,but the longest lenghts are reaching my jeans and that is satisfying indeed. Wonder how far I will be in the summer :)

I have been knitting by the way, but I have also been really busy and involved in something completely different and I think I have found something that is really important to me.

I will blog about these things later on, maybe today depending on what pans out today.

Please be good and have a good weeks my lovelies <3 p="">

Fetching, and fetching they are, I have made them before in blue, but I love these pink ones.

It didn't take that long to knit these, the pattern is really nice and I think it's really well written.

 I have used Adriafil Pois which is a DK wool.
I used 3.5 mm knitting needles
and I didn't even use a full ball of 50 grams on these two.

They weigh 44 whole grams, and that equals to  97 meters.
Here's my Ravelry page if you want to have a look.

I think these are absolutely gorgeous, and they are so incredibly warm. I know for a fact I will use them alot over the years.

I do want to make more wristwarmers, or fingerless gloves. Do you have any patterns you can recommend? Please let me know!

Dare I give you a hint on my next knitting? Ok then...the word is Fana...let's see if you can guess

Have a great week my lovelies
