The sun dawn over the river of Kalix was so beautiful and I could take a relaxing walk along a short part of it.It's often a time for thoughts and inspiration.Every day it's a new experience.I love it. A dear friend of mine,M,sent me this little pouch in soft colours,colours we have in the landscape in the autumn/early winter time.But absolutely no flowers.She knows I love flowers and she made this gift for me.Thank you so so much.In late May/June the flowers are coming back. On the needles a knitting with 1 thread white wool on 5mm.

It has been a long time without blogging but now I hope I'm going to be here once a week. First of all the time goes so fast and soon we have Christmas.The first little decoration I have made is a crochet one.I also made a circle of french knots in gold around the top.http://greedyforcolour.blogspot.com.br/2011/12/christmas-bauble-tutorial.html Very fast but so nice to do.As always I try to knit items as socks and shawls for the winter period and for gifts to family and friends.To have time to knit some rows in the morning gives a hope of socks until the end of the year 2013 :) Just now I'm working on a cushion I have to do as an exam project for the "Embroidery course".I use japaneese fabrics on linen fabric and I'm doing embroidery of some kind between the different parts and also some on the japaneese fabric.

http://www.sticka.org/_data/documents/monster/socka.pdf It's a rainy Monday morning and I started knitting a new pair of socks in jeanns blue colour of Fabel from Garnstudio.The autumn with colder days makes the knitting of socks very good.As I need socks in darker colour it's hard to knit them in the evening so every morning is worth gold.As you can se I have done a change so my cuff starts with 2 of each.Well it was not meant to be that but I was in a hurry starting them so I made wrong but this is also a nice cuff.The lace pattern is called false lace and this is as it's on the pattern. I wish you all a nice day.Soon I'm going to work.
The redberries are just so wonderful this time a year.The knitting season is here.First of all I want to show you the wonderful wristwarmers I'v got from a dear friend a long way from here.I hope you can see the small beads she has used on the thin grey yarn..It's cute but hard to get a photo of.Thank you dear M. During the autumn I have to do some gifts for members of the family.Hopefully these wristwarmers are going to be to somebody.

+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.
