It’s been an awfully long silence. I don’t quite know what happened but I haven’t uttered a word here since I came from Sweden. Thankfully, I haven’t stopped knitting, but somehow I’ve been working on so many things at the same time that for quite long I didn’t actually finish anything. But that has changed!
To start with, I have to show you this photo of a proud mother wearing her birthday present:
She looks happy, doesn’t she?
Then, when Sigga Sif came here for a visit in late June, we went together shopping for Icelandic wool, lopi. I wanted to do another lopi-jacket for myself, and finally finished it last weekend. Well, I still have to sew the zipper in, but I’m almost there:
I’m quite happy with the result.
At last, do you remember this one?
I was never quite happy with the colour scheme. But anyway, I finished knitting the sweater, but that was it. I never got to the finishing stage. I seriously began to think about ripping it last week. I just needed someone´s honest opinion before I did it. So, when Sigga Sif came for a visit yesterday, and agreed, I did it. And it didn’t feel all that bad.
Then, I had to do a little bit of knitting when I was in bed last night, and since I could sleep no longer than until six o’clock this morning, I did a little bit more. I just had to see whether I was pleased with the two colours I chose instead of the red and brown ones:
Actually, they’re quite safe, since these are the same ones I used for mothers jacket. I think this will do. What do you think?
