The first day in August

An ordinary day with my grandchild.It has been so wonderful to take a walk along the river with him.He has been sleeping a lot but he also has been a little social .In the evening I have had time to knit ,mostly the socks.The res/pink ones are done this summer but the black ones are from a "second sock syndrom" but now they also are ready .Now I have new socks for the autumn and winter and that's really nice.Hopefully I'm finding new patterns and new yarn to use later this year too.I'm a big fan of handmade socks.

The summer is here even if we still have not warm att all,about + 15C,but we have vacantion .Just now we are preparing for the elder son and his little family coming on Wednesday so there are just now only a little knitting and only some stiches of embroidery.i have been reorganasing my stash.So many memories and so many dreams that never are going to be fullfilled.
This week we have some roses,these pink ones smells so good and they really give us so much joy.I'm knitting a new pair of socks in bright colours,made in yarn from Regia.
In the end of July we may have a lot of strawberries.As it has been a rainy and not so warm June,beginning of July,it takes time the get the berries.
A little embroidery in "blekingesöm",done for a beginner, and I did it even if it wasn't easy to get the stitches so beautiful.Next time I would love to use cotton yarn or thinner linen yarn.
