Happy New Year

Today it's the last day of 2015 and we hope we are going to have a nice and creative new 2016.We also wish peace in the world .

A package from a dear friend also came brightening up our day.Thank you so much.This morning I had some chocolate and a cup of a tea .So so good start of a new knitting day.
The KAL of Christmas Eve socks are going on and hopefully I have a sock knitted until January 1.My younger son also wished a pair of socks and the first one is on the needles.Hopefully they are ready in the end of January .Sock knitting is very relaxing so hopefully I have time to knit even when we started working again.The holidays are going very fast now .

Happy New Year to all my readers.
So happy for your message and comments on the blog.

The second Sunday in Christmas and a KAL

The second Sunday in Christmas and we have more relaxing day.My sister with her DH gave us lovely tulips when they were celebrating Christmas Eve and the Christmas Day with us.In the background you can see a wreath made by the wife of my son and we have had it for some years.Still it's so beautiful.We have had warmer days than usual,more like spring days and with very little snow.Yesterday it was raining.Totally crazy.

As I told you I'm going to participate in some KAL but the only one I have started is the Christmas Eve can see a OPAL skein of varigated yarn with a sparkling thread.A very nice knitting in my favourite colours.

Wish you all a nice time.
I'm so happy to get some comments from you so please go on giving them.I love comments from you.

A relaxing Saturday and KAL starting on the Christmas Eve.

Yesterday I'v got a lovely pot with Christmas roses from a dear friend at work.It's the first time with the white Christmas roses, for us I have only artificial ones.And the Santa pot is just georgious and it's an old one her grandmother had  a long time ago.I'm so blessed having my friend.We have the same working room and we have the happiness to meet each other 4 days a week.To have someone to deal bouth happy things and things we have so hard to handle with.

The first KAL is  wooly cap/hat,is going to be presented on as a mystery's a KAL you can need at least 10 different colours or 3 colours or.......can it be inspired by knitted things on Shetland island or Estonia or Latvia.....?So exciting.
I have 3 options.
*white and grey colours
*Bright colours where I', going to use mini skeins from my stash
*Jamieson & Smith yarns in different colours

The second on is on Ravelry .She has a blog too.
we are going to use the yarn we want and I only think we are going to choose our pattern ourselves.
as you can see she has a videopod you can look on.I'm so fond of different ones .It's so wonderful to follow knitters who really are knitting a lot.
I love to listen to and learning more about knitting.They also have lovely pictures.The pod is only in swedish.

The Christmas days are going very fast so I'm not going to have so much knitting time.The things I'm going to do I'm going to blog about.

I'm so happy to see several friends have been visiting my blog.So happy if you write some comments too.Wish you a nice time.

See you very soon
