Finally I got my secret pal-gift for July. It took time, but I got a message that it was delayed and I've been gone as well. This gift was worth a wait. It's easy to notice that Margrethe had read my wishes, because the yarn was picked for me. Very, very nice to receive gifts like this one. I also got a pattern for a woollen hat for the blue yarn, which was picked with my son in mind, and a pattern for mittens for the white glitter yarn and pink yarn, which was picked with my daughter in mind. My daughter screamed of joy while opening the pink packet. She told me to knit something nice for her, because that yarn was hers. Thanks a lot for a great packet, Margrethe. I guess it won't be long before I use it.
Jeg er nesten ferdig med julekalenderen. Det mangler fortsatt noen detaljer, men det tar jeg litt etter hvert. Har brodert så mye på den at jeg nesten er litt lei. Den blir ferdig i god tid før jul, i alle fall.I'm almost done with the Christmas calendar. The only thing left is a few details, but I'm doing it a little at a time. Have worked so much with it that I'm almost bored with it. It will be done in time for Christmas at least.
Jeg er også ferdig med Aurelia-sokkene mine. De ble akkurat passe og burde nok vært ferdig tidligere i sommer, med et været vi har hatt;) Skal nok bli gode å bruke utover høsten også. De er strikket i Opal bomull.I'm also done with my Aurelia-socks. They fit perfectly and should have been done earlier this summer, especially with the weather we've had here;) They will probably be good during autumn as well. They are knitted in Opal cotton.
