Bittas fine mønstre. Mønsteret finnes på Ravelry. Den har nokså kort vrangbord, men jeg liker den litt lengre så jeg strikka vrangbordmønsteret to ganger. De er strikka i Projo merino sokkegarn, det garnet jeg vant for deltagelse i alongen Strikkeverdenens ABC. Jeg er blitt veldig begeistra for det garnet.
Back home again after a week on holiday in Hemsedal. The weather was fine one day, but the rest was fog, clouds, and rain. But we had many great experiences, however. And there was time for some knitting! I finished knitting a pair of In the Summertime socks, another of Bitta's fine patterns. The pattern found on Ravelry. It has a fairly short rib, but I like it a little longer so I knitted the rib pattern twice. They are knitted in Projo merino sock yarn, the yarn I won for participation in the knitalong Strikkeverdenens ABC. I like very much that yarn.
Drops. Jeg har syntes det teppet var så lekkert, og da Drops hadde salgspris på det meste av garnet sitt i mai slo jeg til å kjøpte det jeg trengte. Det er strikket med en tråd Delight og en tråd Alpaca. Delightgarnet er flerfarget og strikkes med hele tiden, mens hver mønster rute strikkes i en av tre farger Alpaca. Det gir spennende fargenyanser. Det strikkes i remser som skal sys sammen til slutt. Jeg ble ferdig med den første remsa. Dette er ment å være et langtidsstrikketøy ved siden av andre ting, så det tar nok lengre tid før neste blir ferdig.
I also began to knit a blanket with a pattern from Drops. I thought this blanket was so delicious, and then Drops had sales price on most of their yarn in May, I hurried to buy what I needed. It is knitted with one thread Delight and one Alpaca. The Delight yarn is multicolored and work with all the time, while each square pattern is worked in one of three colors of Alpaca. It gives exciting color shades. It is worked in strips to be sewn together in the end. I finished the first strip. This is meant to be a long time project beside other things, so it takes probably longer time before the next is done.
Jeg må jo ha med noen bilder fra ferien også! I must show some pictures from our holiday too!
Beautiful view from the cottage we rented.
But mostly the view was covered by fog.
On a hiking trail just behind the cabin went the way through a field of grazing calves. There we were met by this cute gang with curious calves who came to greet us.
Having gone a steep path up, we got this great view of the valley.
Up on the mountain on the west side of the valley we took a nice walk along Gyrinosvannet. Tthe weather was very changing, with dramatic variations on clouds and light.
Notice the road a little further ahead, speed bumps? :)
A visit to Torpo stave church, between Gol and Ål. Built ca. 1195.

Rjukandefossen i Hemsedal var et vakkert syn! Rjukandefoss in Hemsedal was a beautiful sight!
