I’ve finished decorating my house for christmas. I must admit I dont like santas, or having a tree in my livingroom, but it’s ok for a few weeks. What I really like is all the candles.
This one is very old, it’s been with me since i was a child:
And, of course, there is something new. There always is:
This beautiful hat is designed by Bente B. I used Drops Alpaca, and it’s really soft.
The pattern was made for a designeralong that I started. The blog for the along will be public from march 1. Bente B also made some lovely wristwarmers to match the hat.
Thanks to Bente B for a great pattern!
When you are a mom, you are also a santa.
This year, santa decided to give mom something special, so (s)he ordered a camera. Mom was thrilled! The other good thing about beeing both mom and santa, is that you dont have to wait until christmas eve. Just ripp off the paper, charge the battery, put on some warm clothes and take a walk before dark comes.
The weather was great!
Look at this tree. I guess it will never be a christmastree,
but it’s kind of pretty after all?
This is my absolute favourite snack. I mix almonds, peanuts, raisins and non stop (milk chockolate):
Her strikkes det ikke mye for tiden, men jeg koser meg allikevel.
Nå som det er helg, har jeg gjort klar favorittblandingen min:
Mandler, peanøtter, non stop og rosiner. Nam!
I made all our christmas cookies last saturday, for 2 households:
På lørdag brettet jeg opp ermene og bakte alle årets julekaker.
Dobbelt opp av alt, siden datteren har flyttet hjemmefra 🙂
Hun var selvfølgelig her og hjalp til.
Det ble havremakroner, kokosmakroner, tyske skiver, berlinerkranser,
kransekakestenger og kakemenn. Ikke riktig alle 7 slaga, men nesten!
Oppskriftene finner du i kokeboka mi
May I present my own design: North Sea Jacket. It’s machine knitted in Kauni, and the colors makes me think about when you are in the north sea and all you see is ocean and sky.
Denne jakken får meg til å tenke på en ettermiddag i Nordsjøen, når alt du ser er himmel og hav. Strikket på maskin, i Kauni. Strikkefastheten er omtrent den samme som håndstrikk på pinne 3. Den er lett tovet, og varmer godt 🙂
I’ve had an idea in my head for a while, a project for the knitting machine. There has been lots of thinking, lots of trying, lots of calculating. This thing is going to be felted, and I needed to find out how much it would shrink. Right now, it’s in the washing machine.
I wonder what comes out!
Så tenner vi et lys i kveld,
vi tenner det for glede.
Det står og lyser for seg selv
og oss som er til stede.
