A - f e w - w o r d s




It has been ages since I have been here - sometimes I pop by my blog, and think that it belongs to someone else. Far from feeling any urge to write a single word.

I stopped writing here rather sudden. My beloved father was diagnosed with cancer, and although he fought back more than anyone would believe, we sadly lost him almost a year ago. And with him went my words...at least in this space.

Hopefully this is one in a new line is a blog posts, but to be honest I can't tell if there will be another one. Only time can tell.

The fun kind of sewing



All these little photos make me want to do some more sewing again...

It has been far too long ago... by lille-ursus


Something else than patching holes in trousers and sewing in new zippers.

Alle disse små fotos giver mig lyst til at sy noget mere igen...

Noget andet end at lappe huller på bukser og skifte lynlåse.

More from Vibe Ulrik Søndergaard

If you loved this book as much as I do, then you will probably be thrilled to hear that another lovely knitting book is on it's way from Vibe Ulrik Søndergaard.

This time it's about knits for babies, and that always comes in handy.

The only bad thing about it is, that we have to wait a while for it to be released. In Denmark it will be published at the end of August. I just pre-ordered it.

I'm doing a bit of baby/toddler knitting myself these days. Remeber this elephant cardigan? So far the 2½ rows of wandering elephants have increased to 7 rows. And I'm actually also doing quite well on the Boxy - like sweater I promised to make for Anne-Sophie in this beautiful yarn.. Soon the front and the back will be done.

And who wouldn't want to keep knitting on a rainy day like this?

Hvis du holdt lige så meget af denne bog, som jeg gør, så bliver du sikkert begejstret for at høre, at endnu en strikkebog er på vej fra Vibe Ulrik Søndergaard.

Denne gang handler det om strik til babyer, og det kan man altid bruge.

Den eneste ting der er træls ved bogen er, at vi må vente et stykke tid før den bliver udgivet. I Danmark kommer den i slutningen af august. Jeg har lige forudbestilt den.

Jeg er selv i gang med lidt baby/små børns strik i disse dage. Husker du denne elefant cardigan? Indtil videre er de 2½ rækker med vandrende elefanter forøget til 7 rækker. Og faktisk går det også helt godt med den Boxy - lignende sweater, som jeg lovede at lave til Anne-Sophie i dette smukke garn. snart er for- og bagstykkerne færdige.

Og hvem ville ikke fortsætte med at strikke på en regnvejrsdag som denne?
