Inspired by this blog, I knitted this cool sweater for 
my little prince. 

I love the simple, but effective pattern, it is
two rows with one knit, one purl

one row knit, and then two rows with one purl, one knit.

love the yarn, it is "Cotanani" from Mirasol.
 60% cotton and 40% wool, so nice and soft.
I wish I had some more,  if you have, let me know

Spring is in the air 

On Sunday we had a nice walk on the beach, 
enjoy the pictures and have a wonderful week!

Lazy Friday evening

I like Friday evenings, and as you can see here, Stella, our Maine Coon too....

while it seems like everybody else in Stavanger are rushing on to 
get on the road to beat the traffic to get to wherever they are
going  for their winter break

we are enjoying a relaxing evening  with some delicious sushi,
prepared by the sushi chef of the house, mmmmm

I have finished a simple sweater for our little prince

the pattern is free here, I used leftover wool from my 
stash, "Kauni" and "Nøstebarn"

His sister has got a new headband, pattern here,
also knitted in some leftover wool, I think this was used
in a babyjacket...

Have a wonderful, lazy weekend and
 thanks again for stopping by!

What an exciting Friday morning, we woke up to winter wonderland!

It keeps on snowing,  all day...

It is a long time since we had seen this much snow...

I had a lovely walk to downtown Stavanger, 

the snow makes everything 
nice and quiet.

Looking out the window, and it is still snowing.

We will enjoy a white weekend, hope you will 
have a nice one too..

Thanks to everyone who stops by.
 I am so excited about all the comments and new followers 
already this year, thanks alot!

January has gone in a rush, but it has been a productive
month and I have finished a few of my project.

Here is another jacket, just finished with  help 
from a friend that needed something to do on
 her flight back to Houston

The jacket has traveled to Houston and back and now it 
is finished and ready for buttons

I think these Moda buttons will be perfect. 
The pattern for the jacket is in "Mix barn" from 
"Sandnes garn", and I used wool called "Lima" 
from "Drops" a wonderful wool/alpaca blend

A sweater for my prince is now on my needles...

Thanks for visiting and have a creative week!
