Ruined Selbu´s …but worth the ride!

I’ve reached summit no.one in 2013!IMG_0561

Spent a day with friends reaching Blåfjell (1392 m.)/Sogndalsdalen #Sogn&Fjordane. This was a perfect day for a free-ride on Telemark-skis! Sun, powder-alarm and beautiful mountains wherever you looked:) Tried on my new Selbu-mittens, and this is how they looked after 3 hours of walking uphill in minus 10 degrees celcius….

So I have to admit; I was wrong! Pure Abuelita thin merino felts a lot more than Rauma Finull! Who would have thought:) …but that just means I have to knit myself a new pair…. Because these certainly won’t last for 10 years…

I´m a dedicated knitter. I share my house with an unknown amount of wool. My kind of wool seems to multiply like quicksilver, -drop a skein to the floor and you get 10 in return….. (well… get is maybe an exaggeration….) So I keep on knitting to try to get on top of it, enjoying the process, the texture of the yarn and the endless possibilities in creating new garments.
