FIGGJO turi - design

I started a few years ago to collect these.

I could not decide if I would collect the green serie called "market"
or the blue one, called "Lotte"

So I started to buy a some of each

Both patterns was designed by Turi Gramstad Oliver who
started with Figgjo in 1960

Finally I made up my mind, and the green ones need to leave me...

To make room for more of the "Lotte" design...

Which of the designs did you like the best?
Do you want to trade?

Just for myself this time, I have knitted a neck and mitts.

Used a luxurious knitting yarn with a blend of Qiviuk
(a kind of bison) merino wool and silk.
A good friend gave it to me last year,
I used it all, just a tiny little bit left.
Both patterns found on Ravelry.

Beautiful weather this morning, maybe it will last
for the week end

The garden is ready for a little yard work

Baked bread again today

And the little ones are back to school after a week
home with the flu

Have a wonderful week end!

Well, I think spring will wait a little longer, we woke up
one morning with snow again...

I have been to the antique store and found this
beautiful things.....

Spring is in my window

and the twins enjoy the snow

Early morning in kindergarten

Saturday today, we have a cake in the oven
and good friends are coming for dinner!

Have a nice day!

I got my first skein of  Woolmeise yarn,
the color is "Granatapfel"

 and I knitted this
simple scarf in just garter stitches.

I found the pattern on Ravelry and it is called
"Hitchhiker". I followed the pattern, just added
some beads.

I have to admit, I have already got my second
skein of  Woolmeise in house for my next

We enjoy the quiet week of winter break in town
baking and knitting!

We went for a walk around the lake today in wonderful sunshine.
It is the winterbreak week in Stavanger this coming
week and we are staying home and hopefully enjoy
more of beautiful days like today

most of the ice on the lake has melted

you can nearly hear the spring flowers are popping up..

Just a few more months and we will have green grass

We always pass this house on our way home,
I think it is such a nice house

and we have a little bit of Texas around our lake....

Hope you all enjoy your week end like we do!!
