...jeg er tilbake...og meldte meg på julegavealongen til Sylvia! Vi skal prøve å unngå galskapen i desember, og begynne på julegavene allerede nå. Detaljer på bloggen hennes:-)
Yarn: Gjestal babywool, a red variegated. I used 100 grams
Men her er min versjon av Baktus. Jeg trodde jeg skulle blitt gal av den! Klarte aldri å følge med på hvor jeg skulle øke- det burde ikke være SÅ vanskelig å øke hver 4.omgang??? Så hele greia ser litt rar ut, men jeg håper det retter seg med en vask...
Brukte 2 nøster Gjestal Babyull og pinne nr. 4mm
Sockamania's Snowy Winter's Eve, knit in Sterk from DuStoreAlpakka. 40%alpakka, 40%merinowool, 20%nylon. 5ogr=137m. So soft!!! And not big enough on me...the fairisle pattern on the leg is just too tight. But they go into the giftpile, so at least something will be done for next Christmas! I have plans to knit a set of mittens and a hat to go with it, think that will be cute.
These are a pair of socks for hubby- Saviano from the latest Knitty. Quick knit. The yarn is a bit heavier than I normally use, I think it was Perfect from Sandnes.
We've had a great winter so far. There has been several weeks now with cold weather, a little bit of snow, and NO RAIN!!! And that is NOT the normal weather here!!! It is actually so cold the water froze...somewhere between the barn and the house. It was frozen Saturday morning, so DS1 and I sat the whole day trying to warm up the pipes again for the barn- it took us several hours, but we thawed it in the barn. Then we started carrying buckets down to fill the bathtub (flushing the toilets..) and filling a big bucket on the kitchencorner for washing and food. We were invited to a Christmas party that evening, which was very nice. Hubby stayed home to try to figure out what to do with the water. On Sunday we drove to Ålesund, first we went to see my MIL-Farmor- and did three loads of laundry, and then dropped off DS1. The ship, Gann, has been in Surnadal as a hotelship, you can read more here, and the pupils came onboard on several places along the coast.
The sheep are standing on the ridge. Not easy to see. They eat a lot of heather now.
Sauene står helt oppe på ryggen. De er ikke lette å se. Det er endel lyng og sånt innover der som de eter på.
They also need a slope/path, because the snow is rather deep, and they have difficulties walking through it.
