My Version of Fritt etter Fana

Posing with my youngest grandson.
This is the most time consuming project you can imagine. First of all you need to know how to knit a pattern with two colours, then you must be skilled at embroidering. I'm neither.
I'm satisfied that I finished the project. My stitches are not even and the mille fleur flowers look withered. I learned how to sew chain stitches in third grade and they have not improved since.

Summer at last!

I have never wanted summer more badly than now. It’s been a hard year while I have juggled work and studies all around the clock and tried to put in a little knitting here and there.

 I have been knitting on the seventh floor with a great sea view. You can see that my colour knitting is not what it should be. Maybe I can block it very heavily...

Today my husband and I have celebrated 36 years as a married couple. We ate lunch at Lokal Diner in Susedalen. I got a lovely silver ring and he got flowers to plant in pots in our little garden. He’s really talented at putting together beautiful creations.
