Ouuuch!

When I was coming home from work earlier today I closed the car door and it took me a second or two before I realised I had squeezed my thumb in between. Ouch! Tonight it looks even worse and is aching and pounding like h-ll.

I hope it'll be better tomorrow because I'm off to a Knit camp in Vrigstad for the weekend. So I hope I'll be able to hold the knitting needles. Because I'm bringing a lot of different work with me.


Last Friday I joined Wendy in the FNSI and worked on a block for a swap, and did some knitting. There's a lot of knitting going on at the moment. I'm so glad that mojo has come back!

I've finished my Tam, it was so fun to knit. But is a bit too warm at the moment, seems like spring is coming. Yeay!
I've also been test knitting these two childrens hats for a book.
I really like them with the earflaps!
Let's see if I can get some sleep before I'm off to Vrigstad tomorrow!

Happy Valentine!

I wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day!

My day will for sure be happy because I'm going to the Stockholm Syfestival. I think it's the biggest craft fair in Sweden.
Me and my friends are taking the train to the capital city early Friday morning and are staying till Saturday. Of course we're going to have some Happy days!

Initial Heart Swap

I took part in this Valentine's day swap organised by Cheryll, a terrific swap mama! Thank you Cheryll for all the fun you do for us!

I was partnered with Laurie from New Zealand and got this beautiful hanging Heart and some Turkish delight and a wooden bear.
Thank you so much Laurie!
This is what I sent to Laurie.            
 
Inside was a purse and a chocolate box.
 On the inside of the purse I had a fabric with some tiny hearts on it.

FNWF

My friday night was spent with 65 other lovely ladies. We were all organised by Cheryll who once a month organise the Friday Night With Friends for anyone to join in. So don't forget to sign up for the first friday of every month.
I spent my night cutting, sewing and knitting.
I'm working on a new tablerunner and it's looking good so far. This is what it looks like at the moment.
As usual I ended up on the couch with a knitting. It's actually a bit more fun to knit now than it's been recently. Perhaps because I've started a few new things.
One of them is a tam, I found the pattern in a book but can't remember the books name. Typical! At least I've still got the pattern! Here it is right now.
I've also started on a new shawl, but I'll save that one for later.
