On the needles

It's a lovely day and I have the possibility to take some photos of what I'm knitting.First of all I'm knitting a cardigan for a little baby,our second grandchild ,who hopefully is going to be born in the end of December or in the beginning of January 2017.I´m really enjoying knitting some lace and the yoke is also going to be in lace knitting.And so nice to do a small cardigan.Very very nice.It's made in Lanett from Sandnes Yarn(182 m/50g) in the colour 4312.

The socks are made in a yarn I have got from my swap friend,a yarn from Deborah Norville collection totally new for me.It's 50% wool,25%Bamboo and 25%Nylon but very easy to knit with.It's going to be very interesting to have them,I think they are not anything for the winter.

I wish you all a nice time

Summerdays


A lovely Midsummer is over and I'm soon going on a Nordic knitting conference in Kiruna. Looking forward learning more about knitting and embroidery on knitted things.We are about 120 knitters from different countries enjoying a week full of knitting .What a wonderful time.

Now I'm retired and as a help on the way into a new life I'v got a lot a flowers and many kind words.During the Midsummer we also have had a lot of wild flowers.My sister had picked so many lovely flowers.So fresh and so full of colours.

The last picture shows wonderful gifts on my birthday in May from M.Than you so so much. Hopefully I'm also  going to do more quilted things when I'm not working any more.I have collected fabrics with flowers on .The Scissor "bag" with a flower on makes me so happy.And the small doily in soft colours.Yes flowers are going to be a theme for some of my handmade crafts.

I wish you all a nice new week.

This is a gift I have got from a dear swap friend on Ravelry.Sweets ,2 lovely skeins of Mini Alpacka
and a tea I really love which I prefer drinking in the morning.I have not decided what to knit of it but maybe I do something in combination with another colour too.The yarn is very soft and very beautiful.
