Mittens and tea

Hello all!
Well today it is windy indeed. So being inside finishing some projects and drinking tea is just perfect. So far no more snow here in Ås (outside Nora, Sweden).

I have finished November months mittens "Pixie Warmers" in StickaMeras "Pulsclub" (mittens club). I made the mittens in Sandnes Alpakka and red one´s this time to. These mittens is a christmas present for my niece, so anyone know her do not tell her please :-). Hopefully she will be pleased with them. So now on to the next knitting project . . . . . . . . . :-).
Yesterday I discovered that there was no teabags left! I use tea bags in the morning and loose tea in the evenings, well other times to but I want to have time for loose tea and don´t like to prepare that when I´m in hurry. Hmmmm, grrrrrr into the pantry and looking round a bit. Aaaaaaa and there I found some tea flower "balls". It is tied tea leaves, when placed in hot water bloom to beautiful flowers. And the taste is quite goood also, shall mention that it is green tea. So I have to use these tea "balls" to warm me up untill today (have tea bags now). The "balls" I used has the long name "China Fujian Floating Osmanthus".

be nice to each other


Finished and up!

Hello all!
Today when I looked at the amaryllis bulbs that I´ve put in pots on the 3 of november, I discovered that they have started to grow :-). In other words a slowly progress. So the bulbs were moved to a bit brighter place. Hope they continue to grow to beautyful flowers! I have also finished (some week ago) my new mittens. A pair of red "Fröken Smillas mittens" (Miss Smillas mittens). I also put out pics on my knitting album at FB. Ooopps a reaction it was indeed, seems like red things attracts people :-) and I got some questions and nice words. The red colour seems to give reaction from many different directions and people I don´t even know!

A little joy

Hi all!
Again it has been some time since I wrote anything here, have been some (sigh) crap day´s again. And some people are really grrrrrrr and don´t think, they are airheads!
I have also got a time for my "sake" in the court, so in the first week of december I will se if I´m entitled to my right´s (my salary)!

But there is also bright spots that lighten´s up the day. Like yesterday my older sister came with a whole basket with yarn, I got both yarn and a basket :-). Found almost at once some yarn that I can use for a birthday present to my niece´s birthday. Later on when I have put out a picture on my wall at FB, I got after some hour or so a question if I wanted some more yarn sent over to me in Sweden! Ooh more yarn happines :-). So in some time more yarn will come to me all the way from USA!
And I have also been to two nice knitting cafe´s this week, that is also some nice hour´s to spend a part of the day.
The basket full off yarn.

Again some nice music to listen to and I got this link from a friend some time ago. Click the picture as usual to listen and see the video.

Be yourself, no matter what they say.
take care of each other
