Knitting, design, wool and other gatherings….

Double vacation….

My last posts has not been very jolly, and it would be great to bring some good news here. But not yet I`m afraid. First the cat sadly passed away, and then this happened! Note to self: don´t cut plastic-piping with knife!  IMG_3748

So now I´m on a forced knitting-vacation. And since easter-vacation is coming up, I´ll be the usual (?!) positive me and see it as an opportunity for a double vacation. No knitting, and a lot of this:images

«It consists of a thick bar, composed of wafer covered with milk chocolate, and divided into four fingers. Each finger can be snapped from the bar, one at a time. In shape and composition, Kvikk Lunsj is almost identical to Kit Kat, which was introduced two years earlier, in 1935.[1] On average a Norwegian eats approximately nine Kvikk Lunsjs every year, three of them at Easter. This means 4,500 tonnes of chocolate during the holidays. During the 1960s, Freia printed fjellvettreglene (Norwegian for “mountain sense/hiking sense”) on the back of the chocolate. Kvikk Lunsj is strongly associated in Norway with family hikes and (cross-country) ski trips in the mountains, which accounts for the increased consumption during Easter, when families often get together and ski trips are traditionally compulsory.» (from Wikipedia)

And this:IMG_0566Perfect for Cross-country skiing (hopefully also with just one stick….)

And I´ll be reading this:gone-girl-book-cover-homeThere´s tradition in Norway for reading thrillers during the easter-vacation. This year will be no exception…

Happy Easter!

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.
