I wish you a Happy Midsummer

Flowers in the garden,mostly wild ones brighten up the day and night.We have so much daylight but today it's not so warm.Tomorrow they say it comes.The gramdmother has her birthday tomorrow and she is really worth all sunshine .We are going to celebrate the Midsummer Eve with BBQ and a sauna.You can see the sauna to the left on the last picture.Perhaps the sun doesn't go down tonight.Maybe we get a magical evening and night.No I'm not going to pick 7 types of flowers to put under the cushion.When I was young I did it but I don't know who I dreamt about.Maybe it was my husband.

I wish you all a lovely Midsummer

Socks in Noro Silk garden sock

The second pair of socks in Noro silk garden sock is ready.The cuff is made in green scraps from s252 and s87 and I made it in a lace pattern.The rest of the socks are made in s252.I love the result but it was more joyful knitting in s87.I think these socks are more useful because the leg and foot is not dominating because of the colours.The yarn is nice to work with.The socks need to be handwashed so .....

A biscornu from Radha- a birthday gift I want to show

The wonderful biscornu has a red and a white side and the embroidery in red on white with red beads and white on a dark red miniaida with white stitches and beads.So beautiful.The threads are so thin.And done on miniaida.What a great work.
