Anyway- this one is done- again... Spesifics: BeeFields Shawl by AnneHanson
Yarn: Røros Lamullgarn
needles:Knit Picks 4mm
started: August 31st 2008
done: October 5th 2008 (but hubby was home all September, which meant very little knitting time...this is not exactly a tv-knit...)
Size: I knit the big size, and it's probably 2,30m across, and 1,15m from neck to tip...(it's blocking on a mattress that is 200cmx90cm)
Recipient:Britt-Arnhild. Enjoy:-) It's a fun knit, but a real "pain in the a**", especially the beeswarm section...I've knitted a lot of lace during the years, but mostly there are no pattern on the "wrong" side- not so here...
When this was done, I started a sweater for myself...for I keep looking at it, wondering if I should rip it or not...so while pondering over that, I knit a shopping bag (from
I live on a farm) Very roomy, and my 13-yearold refuses to talk to me when I use it-LOL!
I needed another quick knit once that was done, so here's the beginning of Swallowtail lace shawl. Actually a very quick knit, but it turns out rather small, compared to the BeeFields it's TINY! Oh, well, it'll be a nice scarf for someone, it probably get's tossed in my giftbasket. Someone said Christmas is coming up soon...hmmm, already???? TodayI got my third teenager- DD1 turns 13! She's beeen acting 13 for a couple of years... She requested pizza and creamcake;-) No party tonight, or this weekend, she's off on a footballmatch early tomorrow. She's a happy, bright girl. Happy Birthday:-)
(See the macraménecklaces? She made those herself. )Hubby's back in Houston for the rest of the month. He says the flight is boring. I keep telling him to learn how to knit! He's not too eager. Funny. He was home most of September, and had fun playing with this little toy...also picking potatoes...this year's harvest! Not so much ,but then we didn't plant so many. They turned out big, and very tasty. I'll save some for Christmasdinner, I think.
The sheep were sent to the slaughterhouse last week, the rest are still walking in the fields. The weather has turned, it's autumn, beautiful colours, lots of rain, long dark evenings. We get a fire going in the fireplace and cuddle up inside.
"Picking potatoes" wasn't the only thing hubby did on his September stay-at-home...see down by the seahouse? Looks pretty good, right? We have finally gotten the area outside cleared and safe. Took this photo only an hour ago, we can't even see across the fjord today:-(
Have a great weekend!
