Sock Madness – sock number 3 – finished! I wasn’t sure about this one. I thought it looked a bit difficult, but I started on Wednesday and knit like crazy – and made the cut for sock number 4. Never made it past the next one so we’ll see if this time is the right

This shawl has been a sleeping project for a few months. I had 10 rows to go, but felt it was a bit small so I wrote the author. Long story short – I can’t make it any larger, so I think this will be a nice spring scarf. The only thing I need to
We’ve talked for ages about doing a knitting evening at work and we finally found a suitable day – the day before Linn Kristin was going to leave us for a new job! How sad is that! So – last evening we had a nice evening with food from Shalimar (hot – indian food!) – cake
