We are celebrating the swedish national day today and we also celebrate a lovely summer day and our home is brightened up by a new little quilt made by a dear friend,also a pen friend since many years,from Japan.We have had peace in our country since 1809.Yes,there are things we have to go on working with so many more people can live under better circumtances but we also have to be thankful for many things.Wish you all a nice summertime.

+27.4C and there are 2 socks.Really very comfortable even if it's very warm.These are going to be my favourites when we have colder days.I didn't put any pompoms as I'm often wearing jeans so it would not be a good idea. http://www.purlbee.com/the-purl-bee/2008/4/14/whits-knits-pom-pom-peds.html I aslo would like to give a link to a swedish podcast I have been listening and the have also lovely links to patterns the like and they also have been talking about many knitting things as needles and yarns and so on. http://stickwithuspodcast.blogspot.se/ Wish you a nice and sunny Saturday

You need 5 squares fabrics,8cmx8cm,a button and a square of fabric to have on the button,one squae below and a needle and thread.You do triangles of the squares ans sew them together to a circle....... We had a workshop in the library and there were ladies who learnt to do them.They are working with handicraft around our area.of course the are more often in Luleå where we have a museum but sometimes they are coming to the countryside.just now we also have a handicraft exhibition in the library.More about that another time.

A little baby cardigan made in M&K Eco baby bomull(cotton) http://www.hendesverden.dk/handarbejde/strik/Rosa-troje-i-tern A soft yarn and an easy pattern.Well the most "hard" work is to do the last things.....to do the last sewing together and to knit the last rows for the neck.It's going to be a very nice cardigan,soft and wearable. While looking at TV,icehockey and Eurovision contest(popular music) I have been doing a part of a crochet shawl in Daphne lace(schoeller&stahl)A nice yarn to do crochet but not in knitting as I couldn't find the right needles and I could't get the right feeling while knitting it.Maybee it was because of the combination 75% Schurwolle and 25%Polyamid. It's going to be a perfect shawl for a summer evening in the north of Sweden I wish you all a lovely day

The bag ,crochet in a yarn made by wood pulp, is a birthday gift from a lovely friend,a pen friend from USA,since many years now.We have many things in common as knitting,crochet and embroidery and many more things.The yarn is eco Andaria.What a lovely wonderful glowing yarn and it's so good to find more eco yarns to use.My friend M says that it weakens a little when it's wet but now it's a very good quality and you can have small things in it without problems.This is also a good summer party bag.Why not having a gift in it when you go to a friend f ex flowers or a skein of yarn.In the birthday package she also put 2 skeins of eco Andaria so I hope I can find out what I want to do of it.About that during my summer vacation. Wish you all a nice time.
