Safety on this website

This week someone shared my pattern number 60. Knitted and felted slippers somewhere. I don´t know where, and I have not been able to follow the discussion concerning the pattern. But a very kind person sent me an e-mail to tell me that people are concerned about the safety on my website. It´s an open […]

No knitting this week

My neck is giving me trouble, and it has been a month now. Normally when my neck is unhappy with me, it takes a few days to get it more or less OK again but this time it has taken almost a month and it´s still painful and stiff. Bah 🙁 I haven´t been able […]

WIPs in November

My buttons are still not sewn on the knitted cabled vest with hood. I´m a bit too busy to finish it now (at least that´s what I tell myself) because I´m working on the second poncho-sweater now, the second of what will be pattern number 66, and everything else has to wait. This sweater is […]

This winter came too early!

I´m freezing! Even with wool in layers, from top to toe, I´m freezing. It´s -15 degrees Celsius outside and loads of snow. January weather, not November weather. It has been like this for a week but it looks like it´s getting warmer tomorrow. I hope so because I can´t stand the cold and snow, I […]

Knitted lace scarf (a la Julie)

I´m planning a trip to the US next summer. I was anyway, I´m not sure right now because of the results of the election. I´ll have to wait and see how things work out for a while, before I decide. The plan is a road trip, driving Route 66 and some other Routes and roads. […]

How hard can it be?

More than two weeks ago I finished knitting a vest, one from my own pattern (pattern number 48, knitted vest with cables and hood). This time I knitted a black one, I already have a white. I love this vest, I use it a lot, and I get loads of compliments for it. It´s also […]

Felted insoles. New shoes, cold feet.

Winter is coming here in Norway, and my feet are always cold. As you may already know, I looooove wool. During winter, I wear wool all over, in layers when that´s needed, but at least I wear wool close to the body. When I have old wool clothes that I don´t use anymore, because they […]

My dead Easter hen and my very much alive slippers

The Easter hen that I started to crochet in January died yesterday. I had to frog it. It looked OK for a while but something didn´t work out with the tail. And when I started to crochet the neck I saw that the hen was way too big! And the opening, to put the eggs […]

Flea markets

Another weekend with flea markets is over, the last one this season. Yesterday I finally found a bicycle! Mine was stolen in August, so I have been looking for a new since then. And yesterday I found it, a pink one this time. The one that was stolen was purple, it was new in 1994 […]
