On yesterdays bobbin lace class I started on a new desing and I like it much. Did also continue on it when I came home :)
My friend Debbie sent me a Tigger & Roo 3D christmas card. So cute. And the other one is from my secret stithcer in the card exchange I'm in. THANKS!!

So at new books. Wogue knitting Shawls ( don't have the same front like it was on the book I ordered but same name so I guess they just changed the front picture) and Neulojan Käsikirja with lots of different types of knitting models..yeiiiii :D
Hope to get all the wip's ready now so I can start something new..or...I did already start on some socks today ;) But it's going to be a fast project I hope.

Thought Little E needs a haircut. Not much..only a few centimeters :D I love the curly hair so don't wan't to cut it away...
Not much knitting done the last few days. :(
Feels like I get up in the mornings, then work, so home and soon to bed then work again..pheewww...blaaahh :(
Have'nt yet made any decisions about workthings so everything is a bit mixed up at the moment, and it mixes up ME even more..ha-ha!!
Was wondering if anyone know any nice free templates, skins for blogger blogs????
I like this one but you can't add comments to the posts and it's not so nice :(
Please put a link in my chat box if you know anything and wan't to share..ok ;)

Had a great day with my friend at the craft show. Went in the morning and came home a while ago :D
Did some shoppings, and would have loved to buy so much more..ha-ha..Like always.
So much inspiration and ideas I got from the show too.

My shoppings:

Novita Aino and Huopanen yarn
On Line yarn
Felted flowers
Reflector thread ( not sure about the right word for it ;) )
Gold thread for bobbin lace
Coloured wool

In a shop there near I found this bracelet and fell in love with it right away coz' the glass pearls are just my colours. Light pinc, lilac.

And from the show I got the picture of this beautiful angel. And bought the frame from a shop.

Already made a plan that we are going next year again :)
I think I must start to save money already lol ;)

Shoulder and neck is'nt much better :(

Had a look in artist Anu Tuominens book today and she has craftworks that I like. There's something fun and different about them and they give inspiration. They tell much and are humorous too. Thought I post some pics of her art here :)

We had Fathersday here yesterday. My dad and mum came over to us for coffee coz' hubby and dad had planed to work on the rooms upstairs. We had a good day and so yummyyy good cakes with the coffee + other things.

Gave my dad the same as usual ( ha..ha...ok, not the same every year but almost ;) ). Razorblades, shaving creme, deodorant, some sweets and a magazine with crosswords puzzles. And like always he sayd 'you did'nt have to buy me anything'..and he liked the things ;D

Little E had mad a cute present in the kindergarten. A bookmark and a handprint..aawwww :)

I also bought hubby a pressie from me and E. Like a wink.. that we soon would like to have our sauna ready..hih, hih :D !!

I do hope this is the start of a new knitting generation :D

Have 200 grams of this stripecoloured yarn but have'nt come up with what to knit with it. So last evening I got an idea and it looks like this so far..

Tuesday, November 07, 2006

Have had a bad day so thought I would just sit and do crafts in the evening. Did take some books, magazines and needles, hooks, yarn...and sit down on the sofa... BUT I have'nt got any inspiration. My head feels totally empty and I could not come up with anything to start with so I'm going to bed. Think it's best so for now.
Hope tomorrow's a better day!!!

Today was one of the happiest moments in my life. I became Godmother to this little baby girl!!

I already miss her so much and hope I see her soon again !!

Saturday, November 04, 2006

Decided I have to get them ready and so I did :D It's been a nice day knitting and now I would like to start something ha.a..haa

The yarn I used is Novita Nalle and I have dyed it myself.

We have a lovely sunshine this morning. But it's cold. I like winterdays like this, but I'm not sure if I want to go out..hih..
Better stay inside and knit :D
So already started something new and would like to get it ready fast so I can post it to my friend.
So need to get on knitting..see ya !!
And for the one who where guessing what I'm knitting,, you did guess quite right. Socks and scarf. Hmmm..think it was easy coz' I have'nt been knitting much else than socks and scarfs..ha..haaa :-)
But the pink knitting I posted about the other day is going to be something else ;)

Wednesday, November 01, 2006

Now I got the baby socks took me longer than i thought ;) Have had other things on my mind. ( other things = other knittings ;) hih..)
And today I got an order for another pair of baby socks so have to look for a yarn. Think I have some nice lilac I could use :)
And here is the small set with mittens and socks. Ready to post so hope it's going to be a nice surprise for both mum and baby ;) Would like to knit a cap but have so little of the yarn going to plan something else for her.

Went to the bobbing lace class.. Did'nt go so :D First I needed more bobbins to continue on the lace and of course I forgot them at home. Ok.. so a lady did loan some of her bobbins. Then I noticed I have'nt got enough of the thread either..grrr..So could not continue :(
But hope that the teacher gets more thread til next time and I can get on with the lace. Did also order other threads for some small laces I have in plans ;)
