Today´s highlight!

Todays higlight in the crap, crap weather is that I got april months subscription tea from TeFrossa and it is the green tea "Japan Lime". It smells absolutely marvellous something in my style :-). I will try it later this day when I can enjoy it a lot.
On the knitting front I have now finished the first sock! As I have said before I have never knit socks before so it takes a bit time. But they are on the way.

The rest then, the so called "thing" or mess or whatever I shall call it (se post from 2009-12-20) and some small posts here and there. Well it will take some more time but it is back up at LO-TCO Legal Aid (court help). Can´t say so much more as it is an ongoing thing. But something will happen in the nearest couple of weeks. Sigh and sigh it takes a long time :-( and it takes a part of you and the mind! I repeat my self I know by saying this, be in a UNION you do get help when you need it! And courthelp is one thing you get help with!

be nice to each other, say nice word that lightens up the day


Knitting cafe

Hi allThis evening was nice indeed!
I took the decision to bike in to the library in Nora and go to the knitting cafe thy arrange there between 17-00-20.00 pm. It was really nice to meet some other knitting people and see what they was knitting on. Some people involved pearls in their mittens, I have never tried that but might do that one day. It do get really nice but looks a bit complicated :-).

I had my mint green socks with me that I knit some on, had my shawl pattern and yarn with me to but no one could understand that english pattern :-(. Sorry to hear Emma that you could not come in, would have been nice to meet you again but understand that your daughter was tired. Hope you can come next time or we can meet up in some way :-) :-).

We actually sat in the exhibition hall! So i did took the opportunity to look at the ongoing photo exhibition with Eddy van Wessel (documentary photographer), who actually is from Nora. It was seriosly and emotonaly pictures and I cant quite describe them, you got to see them!

take care of each other,
be nice and say something nice that makes the day!


France, again!!!

Oopps, me in France again!!! Can´t speak french just a few words!!!

Take care all, say nice things to each other

You Belong in Paris

You enjoy all that life has to offer, and you can appreciate the fine tastes and sites of Paris.

You're the perfect person to wander the streets of Paris aimlessly, enjoying architecture and a crepe.




Just put out the pictures on my slippers that I have recently finished. They was very easy to do! I did though knit "on" the little collar like thing (was not on the pattern). They are very soft an nice to have on. There is some spare yarn left so I can do another pair if I want :-).

Här kommer bilderna på mina slippers som jag precis har gjort klart. De var jätte enkla att göra! Den förändring jag gjorde var att sticka på lite så de fick en "krag" liknande sak på sig. De är jättesköna att ha på sig. Det blev garn över så jag kan göre minst ytterligare ett par om jag vill :-).

P.S has updated my photo album (dogs, people & art, knitted stuff) a bit, just click Maris Gallery to the left.

take care say nice words to each other or do something nice



I got another Sunshine award!

Thanks Emma! I really appreciate it and hope we can see each other again at the next knitting café at Nora library. That would be greate :-) and I can then get some advice from you for my "Gail" shawl :-).

take care


Hmmm day, but sunshine

This day has been strange in a way. I had some hopes that a "thing" would have come to an end (see blogg post from 2009-12-20). I had hoped that it would have come to an solution. But guess it will take a new round (the second actually) with/at LO-TCO Legal Aid (court help) then, sigh. I will see in days what will happen. But I say do be in the Union!!!

The thing that brightened my day up a bit was a award from Kida, a Sunshine award and it "made my day". And some good chat with my friend John , also some nice words from Minna. These three people made my day better. Thanks to you :-) you are special to me.

Wich one?


I want, I want, I want to knit a new shawl!
But wich one? Hard decision isn´t it? :-)
I want to do a Bird´s Eye shawl (have yarn), Gail (aka Nightsongs), Spring Trellis shawl or Haruni kind of have yarn to these also :-).
Pattern is in english except for Bird´s Eye that I have in Swedish. On some of them you shall also crochet a bit, I´m not good at that!

So wich one shall I do, wich one shall I start with?

"Once you make a decision,
the universe conspires to make it happen."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

take care


Hmmm not much


Well have not much to say today.
But here comes the picture that I promised should come. It is the picture on the yarn from the "Sockgarnsbyte" (sock yarn swap) I was in. Thanks to Maria S (see blog. "Jula och Mina" to the left) for it, it will be something of it :-). I will do the sock pattern that was with the package in the green yarn, yes it is green, kind of mint green. The camera grrr did change the colour on that yarn, the other is ok.

Will today end with this:

"Kind hearts are the gardens, Kind thoughts are the roots,
kind words are the flowers, Kind deeds are the fruits,
Take care of your garden And keep out the weeds,
Fill it with sunshine kind words and kind deeds"
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow



Small things = happy

Hi all

Hmm think that small things and small packages, small events and words can make you happy. It kind off "makes your day" :-).

I just had that, I got a small package with a lovely smell :-). It was my first "bag" with green tea in a tea subscription from Tefrossa. Yea you can have that! It has the name "Skärgårds natt" in swedish wich translated to english will be "Achipelago night". Nice name isen´t it?. So that tea will I enjoy this evening and think of the archipelago, water (= freedom) and summer.

And I also got my package from StickaMeras "Sockgarns byte" (sock yarn swap) yesterday. Oooh it was some nice yarn in it :-). I will get a picture on that in the nearest days or so.

Make your friends happy with small things, a word or just support in some way!

Have a nice day
