Seems like I don't do other things than blogg, but I ;-)
Thought I'll let you have a look at the projects I have on the go..just a little peek and you can try to figure out what they can be..Difficult I guess ?!
And to you who read this to your site here and I'll have a look at your blog coz' I like blogging :-)

A lovely sunny fall day here. Blue sky with only a little fluffy clouds. Been out on a walk and it was so nice. The sun is still warm although the weather is colder. Days like this is so lovely. I think there is something good with every season.

Started a new pink knitting. Bet you all know my favourite colour by now..ha..ha ! First I had in plans to knit this for next weekend, but coz' I started it too late I might have enough time til Christmas..or at least I hope so ;)
My Birthday yesterday !
Posting this so late so now I can say it was my birthday yesterday ;) Baked a big birthday cake (forgot to take a pic) and thought some of my friends would come over, but they had other things planed. My cousin visited and in the evening my mum, dad, and sister + boyfriend came over. So nice to have some company!

Got some nice gifts. Winter boots and rose from hubby. Then some other presents...eyeshadow, candles, socks, a scarf, cup, candleholders and coasters (if they are called so, not sure ) Then a lovely door decoration.

Think I'll knit something to go with them, let's see.

Rain, rain now it sure feels like fall is here. Last evening and today it's been storming here too.
So it's not nice to stay out for a few hours in the afternoons blaah.. :(
Not sure what's the matter but I have'nt been feeling so good the last few days. A bit low. Tired too :(
I like to sit quiet and knit but have lots of other things to do also.
Hope this feeling goes over is full with moodswings I suppose ;) Maybe a better day tomorrow. So a little knitting before bed and it's going to be soon :)

Had to go to Lidl and buy the yarn they have there :) It's 100% cotton. Hope it's nice to knit and crochet wih. I also got some pens. Use to write letters with them and they are great!

Changed the template on my blog and hope to get everything in order here.

Some nice music from Bob Sinclar :) One of my favourites !

Is'nt it typical..that when the cd player is broke you would like to listen to cd's. But glad I can hear some here on the internet ;) By the way..the cd player's been broke for a very looong time..uups..;) The radio has been in use almost every day :)

Although I have been knitting lately I have'nt got anything ready. Think I have too much projects on the always.
4 projects I wan't to get ready..but the progress on them is so slow.
I hope I get the real knitbug again now when it seems like we are over with the cold and earinfection. And I have'nt been coughing much today either ;) So fingers crossed that we are getting well now!!!

Thought I post some pictures now when hubby and dad has started to work upstairs and make the rooms ready. But this one here is from outside on the balcony. Still some work to do there too, but it's going to be left til next spring and summer.

And here they have got ready the inner roof in the room I have plans for ;) Or what would you say..don't you think all my yarns, magazines, crafty things and lots more would fit in there so great!!

Upstairs is a bit messy at the moment.
They made the inner roofs ready in the two smaller rooms and in our bedroom :D What might be the next thing to start with ?!

Just to remind you :o)

And I have'nt even mad any plans about the Christmas presents yet...hmmm..
First I think I need to write up who I wan't to make a handmade gift for and then decide what it could be. Have no ideas yet, so have to start thinking.. *think, think* ;)

Better go to bed now. Been surfing on the net today and did knit a little too.

My BOOK wish list!!

NOVITA came today. I always like to get post :D Like before there is some designs that are similar to others from earlier magazines. But I also found some nice things I this lovely white jumper...
I'm not sure if I would knit it in white but I like the design.

And this little girl wears such lovely Christmas dress. If I can figure out how to knit a smaller one (on the pattern the size is 74-110cm and I need one in about 60 cm or smaller ;) ) I would like to fit it in on my 'to knit' list before Christmas like a surprise for someone special ;)

In a few other blogs I did see that they did'nt like this cap..I must be different to others then coz' I like So watch out might have to wear one like this next winter. And I want one too !!

But this one is yak, yak..blaaahhhh!! Horrible.. rasta cap... Would anyone wear this..hmmm?!

Other lovely things too but more about them if I decide to knit something.

This was going to be a jumper a long time ago..but coz' I could not get more yarn for the sleeves this turned out to an ufo. Now I found it again and decided something must be done about it! So when my mum was here she got the job to rip it up.. :D
Was'nt so nice to rip up such big work but better that than save it for nothing.
Has been a nice thing to play with over the weekend..Little E is so ill but found a little energy to play.

And here's the card and coaster I made for Paula in the coaster exchange :)

Have'nt had much time to do any knittings or other craftings this week. No blogging either :(
First week at work and it's been lot's of new things to learn. Hope to get some crafts done this weekend ;)
Everyone in the family has the cold so it's not one of the nicest weekends. Sore throat, sick in the ears, fever..phewww :(
