Another week end

I finally finished my sweater, Elizabeth I, this week end. Unfortunately, it is too big for me, so it is for sale on my Etsy store. Well, that was another UFO done and I started the new week with a little pink dress. It will probably be a quicker project than the sweater that took me nearly two year to finish....

Nice sushi dinner again this week end, our favorite!

I knitted this cat hat for my oldest daughter this week end, it was fun and quick to knit and I used some leftover wool yarn that I had in my basket. The pattern I bought on Ravelry. I will like to knit more cat hats, do you want one too?
Another week end has past and we got some rain and storm and we pretended that it was cold outside!

Twins are 8 months now and they are keeping everyone busy! First thing we got when we came back to Houston was a playbin.

Little brother is jumping quickly around the floor, not much crawling, but more jumping like a frog.

Not much time for knitting this summer, but I managed to finish little sister's babyjacket, thanks to Jorunn, she gave me the yarn I lacked to finish it.
I have worked a bit on my squares too, got some leftover "Baby ull" from friends, like with my quilts, I like the scrappy look!
Had time to crochet a little top that I will make into a dress when I finally get to the sewing machine!
Finally, how happy can we be for 10 minutes of rain, I had to go outside and take some pictures!

Have a nice weekend, we are hoping for cooler weather and rain here!

After 5 weeks away we are back in the heat. It is the hottest summer ever recorded in Houston!
We are glad we have been away for a while.

Here are the twins just of the plane in Oslo where we spent a few days in beautiful weather

Then home to Stavanger where we had a busy time trying to get the house and garden back in shape after being rented for three years. We had a lot to do, the garden was a jungle overgrown with weeds and the house looked ok by the first sight, but then we realized that things were broken and we had not been told. Well, that is the disadvantage of being away....

The house got painted, and thanks to the oldest son we got the new fence and gate up the last minute before we had to leave again.

The harbor had a lot of visitors, cruiseships and a beautiful swedish tall ship.

The twins discovered real grass and went for long walks in their stroller.

It was nice to be tourists in our own city.
