...waiting for photos...

This computer is sick. DD2's computer will not upload the pictures like I want to. She showed me how to do it: like this, and this , and this... I'll have to wait until she can do it;-)



I've been knitting! Started the Poppysocks, (Ravelrylink), Michaela had started on them, and I thought they looked fun. I'm using a blue variegated and a pink variegated, and the kids say I'm not allowed to use them unless they are hidden inside some boots;-D. I'm knitting both at the same time, magic loop, even bought some new needles, bamboo circular in 2.5 mm. I've tried fairisle two-at-a-time before, but got into such a tangle I almost had to cut the yarn. So I was not sure wheter I would be able to knit both. But so far: NO tangles! And it's a fun project! I'm done with the cuff, and half the leg, and only started it a couple of days ago.

I'm also trying to sew a little,made a tablecloth. It's not "lappeteknikk, det er lappverk" (It's not patchwork, it's patching...) But it was fun, and I made a drawstrinbag, perfect for sockknitting, of the leftovers... Pictures later, maybe...

I'm also knitting on my blue recycled sweater, the body is almost done, and I'm working on the sleeves. There are lots of cables! Maybe too many...


In Garnaflækja we're knitting Prinsateppid, and I think Berglind's version is lovely! Mine will have a bit of colour around the edges... I regret not knitting this as a triangular shawl...it would have been very easy to do so. But I'm not ripping now...

We woke up to SNOW this morning! The sun is out, and it's really cold. We were waiting for spring, so this was a bit unexpected.

The sheep are doing fine. We hope to move another 15-20 out during the weekend. We've been checking on them a couple of times a week, and they come running as soon as we start calling. I have lots of photos of them- if only this thing would upload!!!

Okay, time for another cup of tea, and then some outdoorwork, I guess.

Have a great day! I hope to be back soon with some pictures...

Har du tten klar, Marit, så kommer jeg en tur, jeg ;) Det hadde vært koselig det!

Datamaskiner som ikke funker - er forferdelig og grusomt irriterende. Jeg slet litt med denne for en liten stund siden - men så fant jeg ut at snakkern på loftet er datamann også - og han fikset den for meg. Så han må jeg nok adoptere, tror jeg.

Sokker som barna ikke liker er en flott ting og ha. Det betyr at man får ha dem i fred. Man burde ta patent på det og bli rik.

Ha en super dag.

Hia Marit, here we have a shared file that all the processed photographs go into as the house computers are networked together. Beyond me though as I am more of a luddite than a teckie.

Your knitting sounds great. Looking forward to the pics. As soon as I have finished the last stitchery I am picking up my knitting needles again and delving into a book I got for Christmas.

I have a query- the book mentions "worsted" and "fingering" are these like 4 ply or finer? I usually work with Aran or DK yarn so these are new terms.

Tonje said...

Ooohh... can't wait for the photos of your projeckts. They all sound really exciting!

Michaela said...

What? Halfway up the legs and you only started them a couple of days ago? Are you a supersonic knitter or something?! The colours sound fantastic - not to be kept in boots at all!

Ruth said...

Visst hadde jeg skrevet "snakkeren på loftet". Vel, nå fikk jeg meg ihvertfall en god latter - på egen bekostning. Vi har jo selfølgelig ordentlige spøkelser her også, de kan ikke snekre, men snakker desto mer.
Jeg har tilbudt snekkeren adopsjon, men han sa kona ville sette seg i mot det. Men han kan jo bli fosterbarn kanskje.

Kitty said...

Can't wait to see your poppy socks ... Michaela's are gorgeous. x

It sounds like you've been keeping busy! I can't wait to see all the pictures.. It's hard to imagine snow this time of year; it's been grey here, but definitely not even close to cold enough for snow -- even in the mountains nearby.

tantehilde said...

Oh I'm looking forward to see some pictures, it all sounds wonderfull!

Heidelweiss said...

What fun projects you're working on! We've got snow too. Boo. I'm done with winter. I hope it warms up for you soon ;).

RC said...

oohh can't wait to see all the pics of the knitting (and sheep)
your farm is beautiful

Tracy said...

Hi, Marit! How's the computer doing...Hope it will be feeling better soon and able to share photos with us! ;o) Can't wait to see your knitting. My own sock knitting is not progressing to well...i just can't seem to get to being friends with working with so many needles going at once--LOL! But an adorable baby cardigan is on my other needles. Glad all is well with family and sheep. :o) Happy Days ((HUGS))

I can barely contain myself having to wait to see all the beautiful things I know you are putting together. They sure sound wonderful reading about them all. Socks, sweaters, table cloths and such. I hope you get this figured out soon...........LOL

Keep well :)

Farmors said...

Vil bare ønske deg en god fortsettelse på påsken, det er kanskje lamming hos deg nå??
Jeg er like spent på det som på håndarbeidene jeg! Men bilder er jo alltid kjekt!
