What's going on

I have been quiet for several weeks now. Have your noticed? Well, I did not do it intentionaly. Sometimes life just get in the way. First of all I went to my mom's for 10 days to make some more rugs. This time for myself. I find it very satisfactionary to do this kind of craft. I have used old sheets and bedlinnen for the rugs.

DH came lasst week end to pick me up. On saturday he got a call from his sister about their 91 year old mom. She had a massive stroke. DH left to be with her on monday after. This is 2 - 3 weeks ago and she is still in the hospital. She is not doing well. This is stressfull times so I did not feel up to new creative steps. Instead I picked out some WISPS from my knitting baskets.

This is what I have found. One pair of fingerless mittens made in natural homespun wool yarn. The only thing missing was the croched egde on both. Now they are ready to use.

Some time ago I fell in love with a scarf on Sigrun's blog. Sigrun gave me the instructions and I made this soft and warm Baktus scarf. I had about 10 cm left to do.

I knitted socks for myself last year. I had some yarn left and made matching fingerless mittens and a simular scarf as the Baktus scarf.

Another friend gave me a pattern for thise cuties. Fun to make and fun to wear. Do you wonder what it is?


Slippers!

To morrow it's my turn to go up north to be with DIL. I'll be away for 5 days. I'll bring a lot of stitchery and some knitting.

Hugs from Nancy

All those beautiful knitted items should make you nice and warm. The colors of the projects are beautiful! I hope your mother-in-law is doing better.

Så mye flott du har strikka, og ikke minst vevd. Flotte matter. Håper det går bra med svigermor.

Kjekt å få tilbakemelding om mattene. Jeg bruker mest toskaft, men også rosebragd av og til. Jeg har ikke lært å veve, men min datter Sølvi har utdanning og hjelper meg hvis jeg får problemer. Du har noen lyse, fine matter, så til å være nybegynner er det topp. Jeg har vevd noen hundre meter...

Flotte matter, skjerf og pulsvanter... Det fristet med sistnevnte og baktus skjerfet. Matter har min mor vevd. De er så koselige...
