Yellow............

A beautiful evening in the garden a week ago these flowers were just magic.The autumn colours are coming and the nights are colder.Now it´s a perfect time for knitting. I bought Opal handgef√§rbt colour 3173 and it's really a bright and sunny sock knitting.Hopefully this pair is going to be for charity.
As the evenings are darker it's so lovely not to have so dark colours.This pair of socks are so nice to do and I really like this yarn.Earlier I started a pair in Opal Polarlichter but this was to dark and the yarn wasn't so soft.Later I'm going on knitting them but I hopefully can do some stripes on them to brighten them up. Wish yo all a nice new week.

The trees........

In the park you can find at least 3 trees having crochet and/or knitted decorations.

What to do with a chair?Or a tree?

Visited an handicraft exhibition in Luleå on http://www.nll.se/sv/Kultur/Kulturarv-och-museum/Norrbottens-museum/Utstallningar/Hemslojden-130-ar-Visas-284-99/ From the exhibition I'm going to focus on 3 different "chairs"
I found it very interesting with all these crochet flowers in bright colours all over the "chair".Maybee a little comfortable too?!
A perect way of using doilies done many years ago of women all over the country.On different places you can find them and they are so so well done and they often are very cheap.You can find them in many colours and often in white too.
The third way I love very much is when you use scraps from fabrics,here in red and white.It's made as a rug.
