Thanks for all your nice comments on my last post! That's what I really like about this whole internet/blogthing- all the connections, all the nice and creative people out there!
My daughter is a happy 13-yearold, and she came home from the footballgame on Saturday, and they had won. So on Wednesday they are off again- leaving right after school, and coming home late. She's not going though, we're going to Måløy to meet DS1 onboard the ship. They are sailing, from Stavanger to Ålesund, and all the way down again. He told me last night that he should be on engineduty from 2am to 4am...
It was also the night of the first "proper" storm we've had this fall, so I wonder if he's been seasick...?
They call this trip a recruitingsailing, and friends of Gann and other interested are invited onboard. 10th grade from school here are going Thursday to see the ship.
The Swallowtail Lace Shawl is done. It IS a quick knit, I used only three days. It's not quite as big as BeeFields, but it turned out bigger than I thought. Blocking might have a central part there...
Evelyn Clark's Swallowtail Lace Shawl
Yarn: pt2 from Raumagarn 100% wool, 50g/165m. Used nearly 3 balls.
Needles: 4mm. Or perhaps 5mm? Don't remember. It's been 3 days since I finished it!
I knit it as stated in the pattern. I saw some shawls over at Ravelry that had be n enlarged, but wasn't sure how much yarn I needed, so I decided to stick with the pattern.
I like this yarn a lot, but I think I like Lamullgarn better.
Lily of the valley-pattern.
This is probably the most accurate colour.
Weather outside is lousy, there is no chance of taking any pictures, so this one will have to do:-)
The moving wool tried to grab a few bites to eat, but then it started raining buckets again, so they disappeared into the woods. They stand still, head lowered, shoulders up, not very happy. Almost time to bring them inside.
I'm off for another cup of tea and some more knitting- there's a pair of socks on my needles...
Have a nice week:-)
