Ja - vi glemte det helt...

men vi tok seremonien i dag:


Vi tenner fire lys i kveld
og lar dem brenne ned
for lengsel, glede, håp og fred,
men mest allikevel
for fred på denne lille jord
der menneskene bor.

Lysene brenner enda, to av dem - vi gleder oss til jul!

Førjulsgleder III

Så tenner vi tre lys i kveld, for lengsel, håp og glede.
De står og skinner for seg selv og oss som er til stede.

Jeg strikker - litt. Akkurat nå strikker jeg lue til meg selv. Det blir visst lite hjemmelaga til jul. Endel er sikkert glad for det. Ikke lenge igjen nå :)

I'm knitting a hat - for me, that's all.

Førjulsgleder II

I kveld smaker vi på jula - det står pinnekjøtt på menyen - og vi gleder oss!


Så tenner vi to lys i kveld,
to lys for håp og glede.
De står og skinner for seg selv
og oss som er tilstede.
Så tenner vi to lys i kveld,
to lys for håp og glede.

Så tenner vi et lys i kveld, vi tenner det for glede.
Det står og skinner for seg selv, og oss som er tilstede.
Så tenner vi et lys i kveld, vi tenner det for glede.

A little pink purse

This purse was gifted this summer - I just forgot about it...

The recipient (my niece) was very happy with it.

No pattern, cotton yarn (mandarin petit)and the button is from an old coat - my moms I think.

Lucky me

I won!

Look what Brianna from "The Crochet Side" generously giftet me after a contest on her podcast:

new book

The Crochet Answer Book by Edie Eckman - that will teach me everything I want to know about crochet, and more.


A light blue, very soft ball of Phildar Coton Micro Fibres. I think I have to make the One Row Lace Scarf. Probably as a moebius cowl as I did with the yarn Love from Vickie Howell.

Hi - I'm back!

I've been spinning, knitting and crocheting all summer, and I think my blog mojo is here too, lets try:

A little bit more about the socks from my last post:

Summer socks

Pattern: My own toe-up, gusset heel socks - love them!
Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Silk Color, 1.2 skeins = 261.6 yards (239.2m)
Needle: US 1½ / 2.5 mm

My first buy this year (!):

Black lace weight yarn, over 600 gram:


I better find some shawl patterns I like....

Last September I learned to spin with a drop spindle. I haven't been that eager, but have spun up 100 grams this year, why not buy 700 grams.... (crazy):


And look how far I am in spinning it up:



The wool is bright red, and not easy to take a photo of.

Thank you all for visiting and commenting this summer - I think I'm back :)

No mojo

I've no blog mojo, but I am knitting:

Summer socks

Toe-up socks with heel-flap. Love my new pattern!

Mostly I'm playing Mafia Wars on Facebook:


Add me if you want to be "family" ("Turvid Plays").

On to more knitting, or playing....

I'll be back :)
