This I call summer!! To pick up some lovely flowers on your own lot.. I love them :)
Got in the crochet mood and made a star with some leftovers of Mandarin Petit. This star is about 19 cm in diameter.
I have made these stars before and they are one of my favourite crochet motives. Continued with them and have now got a little done on another project. Don't yet know what it's going to be :P

Went to Ikea again today...second time this like it's one of my favourite plases these days. Got some lovely outdoor furnitures. Must show you pics some other time.
Tomorrow 10 hours at work and later in the evening I'm having my cousin over and then we are going out..woohoo ;)

Have a good weekend !!

Now I only need a belt for this one I got ready today :)
It's the old yarn that was ment to be a jumper but when I could not find more of the yarn I did rip it all up.
Started to knit a new project and did'nt even know what it's going to be, but turned out to this waistcoat...or what shall I call it :P

More earrings

These earrings I made for my friend. Gave them to her when we went to them at the midsummed eve. She liked them much. And best thing was that she did wear a necklace with black beads just like they I used :)

Made the white a few days ago and pink ones now today. They look both nice and think the pink ones goes to a friend :)

Did some painting and then hubby helped me to put up this little shelf on the wall outside near our front door. Turned out just the way I wanted :D

Hubby has also been busy with the garage project. Here's a photo of how far it's now.

I don't know what's wrong but I want to start new knittings all the time :P And here is another cap on the needels. It's always so fun starting new projects!!
Pics of my violets..they have so lovely colours.
And now off to knit and watch tv. Die Hard movie with Bruce ;)

For the project I started yesterday I have 4 balls of yarn. Now it looks like I started it too big and I have'nt got enough yarn, bought the last ones of this colours from the shop :( SO.. now I think I have to start over again and knit a bit smaller..and with bigger needels. Just that I can't find the bigger ones..where have I put them..hmmm..

Just got ready this strawberry cake. Going to take it with us to my cousin where we are going to spend the evening whit her and family. Having a barbeque and going in the sauna. The kids can play, adults can take some wine and beer and enjoy this lovely summer time :D

Have had a nice day today. In the morning I made ready a little baby cap for my godchild. Knitted with Mandarin Petit and pattern from Moda 4/2007. I like this cap much so might make another one :) ( on the photo here it's on the dolls head )

Yesterday I had a lovely surprisepackage in the mailbox. It was a Moomin mug and card from my friend who lives here near me. What a lovely summerpressie :) And today she did visit me.

Did bake a rhubarbpie on the day..mmmmm..

And I also got finished the knitted doily. Used Novita Virkkauslanka and pattern from Novita Summer 2006. Had problems with the starch. So if you know some good ways please tell me !!

My friends hubby fixed the computer for me so I can use flasch player and see 'materials' that moves..wooohooooo..Had to make a slideshow rightaway :D :P

Started a new project...something in dark beige ;)

In the morning I was lazy watching a film and did some knitting again. Have lots of problems with this one..making mistakes all the time. Now I really want to get it ready fast so I can forget all about :D :P
The yarnshop was closed last week when I was there so made a new trip today. They had summersale and then going to close for the rest of the summer. I know I'm not running out of yarn now either but just had to get some more..I know...I'm hopeless..ha-ha-ha!! Me and yarnshop= bad combination :D
The yarns are Mandarin Petit (4), Alpaca (2), Marks & kattens (1) and Naturgarn no.1 (4)
Have got plans for them all.
And the Marks & Kattens cotton yarn I was planing to give mum as a surprise :)
Think I'll survive the month when the shop is closed now :P
Made a pair of earrings tonight. They are on the way over to Uk with another pair :)

Thanks for the comments :) I now feel better. Must have been some virus coz' I had the high fever and sore in my legs and arms, ears, throat etc.. Glad it's over for now :) Throat is'nt yet ok..but almost ;)
Yesterday I started knitting a doily and got a bit done. This is photo from last evening. Done some more knitting today and also much frogging...grrr :(

Hubby's at nightshift again so Litte E and I have been home just the two of us.
First it was a bit boring and we could'nt come up with anything to do..
Spend some time outside, but then he fell and hit his head so we came inside to play. He now has a blue forehead..We did draw and colour, then E had a loooong bath while I sat with my feet in warm water and then I did clean our sauna and bathroom. E was happy playing in the water while I was cleaning.
Then bedtime for E and time to knit for me :D

I thought I have all sizes of needels but I was wrong.. I need a few smaller ones coz' I lost one of the needels under our stairs outside. Would like to knit more lace things with thin yarn, so bought some new ones today. Maybe more doilies with the white Novita Kotiväki yarn..either knitted or crochet .
Was on a tabletop sale this morning. (not quite sure of the right word. Peoples sell their old things there) Got 1 t-shirt, 2 jumpers for Little E. A crafty magazine, a ball of cotton yarn and a small decoration. 2 lovely hangers for flowers (putting up photo later ;) ) , a long jeans shirt for me.
Think we found some nice things there and did'nt spend much money either..great !!
Here on the photo is the decoration and the yarn. I like those hands but Little E says he is now afraid of them...hmmm..what shall I do now... :P

PS..Vad roligt att du tittat in här Bodil :)

Had a nice day yesterday. First we went to Ikea and later in the evening to the movies. Saw Pirates of the Caribbean. Was good and relaxing time :)

Have been trying to knit ready the knitting I started some time ago with this old yarn that was suppose to be a jersey for me. But when I could'nt find more of the yarn I did frog it and started this other project with it ;) Not long now and it's going to be ready...I hope.
Did try to make some earrings tonight but was'nt in the mood. Not in the mood for much else either. Been feeling a bit low.
