SUMMER KNITTING - "Oslo anorakken"

Are you looking for a fun and easy project?
I found this pattern 

                                                   and it was perfect for the  4 skeins of wool
                                                 (with no name on)  that I bought here a couple 
                                                  of years ago,  and 4 old buttons from my box

It was just enough for the size 4 that 
I knitted for my little prince,  just a few 
yards leftover..

A perfect sweater for a cold evening and for the fall!

Have a nice weekend and thanks for stopping by!

We are staying at home for a couple of weeks and the twins 
like to spend time outside.
While at the playground , this family came to visit...

On rainy days they like to visit the library downtown,
but we were realy lucky with the day visiting the farm,
blue skies and nice temperature..

What a great day, the kids had been here before 
and could tell me about all the animals.

and guess where little brother spent his time?


Knitted a little summer hat for the princess,
pattern free on Ravelry, some leftover cotton 
yarn from my basket and buttons from my box....
A fun project!

It has been a long time since my last posting, thanks for being patient with me. Thanks for comments and welcome to my new followers, you are all very much appreciated!

Since last time we have been traveling again, this time we have been to California, Hawaii and Texas. I took hundreds of photos and it is hard to pick a few ones, anyway, here is a few...

This sculpture is in San Diego, it is huge!

Little brother in front of the battleship Midway.

A visit to San Diego Zoo is a must...

A lot to see and do, we spent a whole day...

Then off to Hawaii!

Visiting Pearl Harbor historic sites

Pearl Harbor "Aviation museum"

Waikiki beach

Houston here we come again!

Crawfish boil in the park

we ate alot of sushi

had time to work at the ranch 

when heat is close to 32  degrees C outside,
little ones prefer the  indoor playgrounds

and a dip in the pool is good too!

The twins just turned 3,5 yrs, but they  are already
"experienced" travelers and have been alot of places!

I hope you enjoyed these images from our travel.

I will be back soon, I am busy  with my knitting needles 
and in the sewing room!

Have a nice week!
