My husband and I hade five lovely days in London without the kids. So great to be a couple, enjoying life and forget about time and kids for a while. It's always busy in London, things are happening, always a lot of shops with a lot to shop, always a lot of people and always a lot of things I want to see and I promise myself it won't be long before I go to London again. I went to John Lewis. A lot of nice yarn there, and I am very happy they have a John Lewis in Glasgow. I'm going to Glasgow in a couple of weeks without husband and kids. I might buy more yarn then. This time I picked out four skeins of soft wool yarn. Have plans to knit scarves to the people working in the kindergarden with my kids to Christmas. I have already started on a Bainbridge scarf of one of the skeins.
Strikkeblader er så gøy å lese. Masse inspirasjon og oppskrifter, men dyre i Norge. Kjøpte fire i London, men fant ikke Vogue knitting.
Knitting magazines are fun to read. I always get a lot of inspiration, lovely pattern, but they are expensive in Norway. I bought four in London, but couldn't find Vogue knitting.
Jeg har hørt mye om Loop gjennom Hobbyboden, så jeg måtte jo innom der en tur. Loop ligger litt utenfor det typiske turistområdet, men fikk nå dratt med mannen bort. Han satte seg på en pub i nærheten med en halvliter, mens jeg shoppet. Begrenset meg veldig, men sjekk dette nydelige håndfargete sokkegarnet. Må finne en vakker sokkeoppskrift til dette garnet.
I have heard a lot of Loop through Hobbyboden, so I just had to pop in there. Loop is situated outside the typical touristarea in London, but I dragged my husband there. He found a pub close to Loop, while I was shopping. I was a really good girl and didn't shop that much. Check out this lovely sockyarn. It's handdyed in lovely colors. I just have to find a beautiful sock pattern for this yarn.
Se på dette nøste her. Det er så søtt. På størrelse med en fyrstikkeske omtrent. Det er så mykt og tynt. Jeg tror jeg skal strikke et lite sjal eller skjerf av det, eller kanskje bare beholde det en stund og ta på det.
Look at this cute skein. It's so cute and small, about the size of a match box. It's so soft and so thin. I think I will knit a shawl or a scarf with it, or maybe just keep it to feel it for a while.
