She is a lovely lady, and we had some great days with her. The weather was okay,okay enough for the kids to go swimming....we went to a bathingplace in the river,where they jumped (see the splash...?) and swam for some time. I had to drive them, and brought some work with me to do... Anyone who has joined the MysteryStole3 ? I signed up...I can't have been at my senses at the moment- there just wasn't time to do any knitting at all...but I signed up...Well-so far I'm done with the third clue...I'm using crochetthread to knit with, on 2.5mm needles, and will use it as a tablerunner. Why? I don't know what kind of yarn to use. I've knitted a few shawls some years ago using Icelandic yarn (Eingirni), but my local LYS has nothing, another has too expensive stuff- lovely, but way too expensive- and I haven't tried ordering through internet yet...hubby doesn't like it at all. So that's why I'm using crochet thread:-)
Balancing the pattern, following pattern rows, and knitting with white- a challenge-LOL!
Before starting MS3, I finished my Serpentine socks. They're done toe up, with rather short legs-because I was using only two balls of yarn...and my feet are pretty big. But I like them. a close up of the mystery stole-the pattern is beautiful so far.
We didn't do much on our little vacation, but the kids helped farmor in the garden, cutting grass, watering and carrying firewood closer to the house(it will soon be winter, my friends!) We also went to see "Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix" at the movies. A bit of a disappointment...There has been a lot of writing about it in the newspapers around here, saying it is not suited for children under the age of 11 due to something-well, my kids are not the average kid,I guess...nothing seems to scare them... Anyway, we're glad we went, but we were expecting a bit more.
DS2 is reading the fifth book at the moment, I read the first to them, but they got longer and longer by each book, so now they have to read them by themselves...
I'm waiting for the last book to be translated to Norwegian- here is just NO way that I will start reading that in English!!! Still haven't read #6,though...guess I'll have to start all over again...
DD2 celebrated her 10th birthday on July 24th- it is really hard to believe that she is already 10!!! I mean- I'm not getting any older???
