Thanks a lot for your nice comments on my "beejacket"!!! I love it, it is so comfortable, and I really want to use the pattern again-the jacket fits, so I want to make another one with a different pattern and different colours(or juxt solidcoloured...I'll see what I can come up with...)
Picture taken this morning...had to get up at 6am to drive hubby to the boat leaving for Bergen at 6:50am (it takes 5 hours to Bergen, then he flies to work in Stavanger, and he'll be gone for 2 weeks. But he has actully been home for 4 weeks now...it is a looong time since that happened last!) The kids are still asleep, the guests at the seahouse is still asleep, the cats lay around sleeping.... Last night Tussi met the hedgehog. He was pretty curious about it, tried to play, but backed away quickly-LOL!
There is actually some knitting too! These are the SockamaniaJuly socks,(I'm having the blues...this is the third pair-of three-that I have made for myself in this club in blue yarn-hehe)The pattern is great, but I'm having big troubles with the cables...cabling every third row? I always forget which row I'm on... They are knit toe-up, I used a figure8-cast on, which works for me-because I am totally unable of making short rows with wraps! I've tried! Several times! It looks awful! So I cheated on the heel too, and made my own version. The cuffs might be a bit shorther than usual, because I thought I'd use only 2 balls of yarn(and my feet are so big that if I start top down, I need nearly half a ball extra...) That sounds weird. It's too early in the morning. BTW: the tablecloth is made by a neighbour, we got it as a present when we moved into the new house a year ago. It is beautiful!
I also signed up for MysteryStole3...and still haven't had time to start it, haven't even got yarn for it...I've seen parts of it on different blogs-(sorry,too tired to find any links)but I might have an idea for that one too...There will be more knitting and reading now that hubby's off to work again.
I'll leave you with today's view...a wet, foggy day.Which I will spend in company with my knitting needles...
Have a great day!
And Kristy ,I'll get back to the rockin' thing!
