Yesterday Jeanette asked me to play along - so here is my day:
The morning's positive thing: The smiles on the face of my son + I managed to get the laundry inside before the rain began...
The morning's negative thing: Must definitely be the rain (I had hoped to go into our garden)
Outside my window:I can see cars driving by and hear their wheels splashing through puddles. Through the other window I can see a tiny bit of our garden.
On my TV right now: News...
I want to listen to:Silence for a while. And later on I will look forward to hear the voices of my two children.
Today I'm wearing: My beloved Marimekko dress with all the tiny pockets. Black trousers. And no socks - how wonderful to be able to do that!
Today I have to do this: I have almost already reached my goals for today...the daily domestic work has been done. I only need to do some more laundering...and wait for the rain to stop!!
Futhermore I'm going to spend time with my children, read the paper and go to the store to see if the new Boligliv has come. Maybe I will sew a stitch or two on the Mario bag....
But I would rather be doing: Be sitting in a summerhouse on the little island Fanø with my family.
In my window sill: I have lots of rosy flowers and always candles in some form.
In the weekend I willl be doing this: Well, I have the fabulous concert to go to. That will absolutely be a highlight of the weekend. And then my son and I will get his clothes and things ready for his trip with his class. He's going to be away for 4 days!
Hopefully I will have time and energy for some crafting as well.
If you would like to tell us a bit about your day, then feel free to grab the questions...
Right now I'm sewing on the rabbit's braces, and then I will carry on with something for his neck.
I can't decide whether he is going to have a collar added to his white shirt, or whether a knitted scarf would be better.
Along with the collar I would a make a line of embroidered buttons - I don't want anything to fall of - down his belly.
And if I have some time left I will make him a little rucksack. That could be cute...and what if the rabbit had a little rabbit in his rucksack?
Did you have a Känken?? I sure did back in the early 90ties when I studied. I had several during the years - in different colors and I loved each and every one of them. They always ended up looking washed-out and worn, but I never experienced that they broke - no matter how many kilos of books they carried at that time.
For many years I didn't see that many Fjällräven Känken bags, but now they are back!
I have started the scarf I ordered from Theresa Jessing's shop. It's a lovely kit and I enjoy knitting in the yarn, which is a mix of silk and merino.
The colors are fine too, and I know that I will wear the scarf a lot in the future. Soft and nice is how it feels like - perfect to put around one's neck.
I have ordered yet another kit from "Sort Lakrids". It's a sweet little sweater in brown wool - it's called the "Skibstrøje". I love how Theresa Jessing has designed the neck with the 4 buttons.
And you know what? She's writing a new book....I will look so much forward to that.
The little vest I started a few days ago is done. Well, almost done. I still need to make it wet, put needles in it and let it dry.
And then sew it together in the 2 sides, crochet around the neckline and at the same time add a little buttonhole.
I will wait a while with the button, because I still don't know whether Christian's brother and his girlfriend are having a boy or a girl.
But I thought about blue-ish fabric buttons for a boy and pink-ish for a girl...not very inventive - I know.
Actually I have enough yarn left to make another vest, I think. But to be sure I will buy one more skein of "Isager's mercericeret bomuld" in another color. The next vest will have stripes.
I need a new coat for the windy spring days and cold summer evenings.
I have always loved stripes, and stripes it was. I really wanted the fabric to look in a different way - the bottom was supposed to be navy blue and the stripes white. But that combination was nowhere to be found on the day I needed it....
For now I have red buttons, but I can't make up my mind whether it is going to be another color. Orange or yellow could be cool too. Or purple.
A pattern has not been found yet, either. I'm still searching.....roughly I know what I want. And I do have a couple of patterns in reserve should I not find what I want.
The length of the coat is going to be no longer than to my knees, I don't want a hat on it, I want pockets and some other funny details.
