Hey it's good to be back home again!

Look at this gloomy woman. Yes, she´s got fever and should be in bed, but she´s on her way to Norway and despite the heat she is wrapped in a Centipede scarf designed by Malin Flodin and the yarn is from Garnpaletten. Skeikampen was a good, quiet and beautiful place to recover in and after a day in bed I was out and about again.
I was afraid I should meet a bear but the only animals I came across were cows and sheep. Sometimes they came too close to my liking.

Here's the man who went on a walking tour in the mountains. This is what he looks like after seven hours of walking. Tired and pleased.

There was so much to see and photograph on our way down to the Geiranger fjord.

Time for a cappuccino in Lillehammer, wearing my new net-shawl.

We were met by a tremendous heat when we came back to Falkenberg, so I certainly don't need to put something warm around my shoulders but I want to show you........

.........a shawl in cotton. It should have been crocheted in mohair yarn and looks gorgeous in the book Sköna sjalar by Lena Blidell. My result is not so good and the shape is ugly.

........a shawl in wool, Heavens hand. Wow, that yarn is fabulous and the blue colour is so extremely beautiful! I'm rather pleased with the result. Anna's Shoulder Warmer will always remind me of Geiranger and mountains covered with snow.

Wow, här har det jobbats! Vilka fina sjalar du gjort, me like!
Jag har aldrig gjort Anna´s Shoulder Warmer i Heavens Hand, men eftersom jag trotsade garnförbudet med 4 härvor är det nog dags att testa nu. Storleken blir ju betydligt angenämare än på de jag gjort.

Mysigt med sjalar! Det är ett underskattat plagg. Den boken har jag också, kanske ska ta och titta lite djupare i den... Ha en fortsatt trevlig sommar.
