When I was at the Projo knit gathering two weeks ago, I bought a skein of Zauberball sock yarn in gorgeous fall colors called Oktoberfest. I had found a nice pattern on Ravelry of socks with leaves called Fall Out: The Socks. Designer Deborah Tomasello. I used black Arwetta as main color, and Zauberball Oktoberfest to the leaves. I used needles 3. The yarn could best be knitted with thinner needles, but then would the socks been too tight :) It was long color change of the yarn so I did not get used all the nice colors of the yarn. On the first sock became the first three rows of leaves in almost the same red color. So after then I changed the color of yarn for each row of leaves. The skeins of Zauberball is made in such a way that you can easily see the color changes.
Jeg har over halve nøstet igjen så det er nok til å strikke et par sokker til, men det må bli senere. Nå er det tid for litt julegavestrikking! I have more than half of the skein left so it is enough to knit one more pair of socks, but it must be later. Now it's time for some Christmas gift knitting!
NATUREN I OKTOBER
Oktober har vært en skikkelig høstmåned med både regn, tåke og sol. Jeg synes naturen er vakker på forskjellige måter uansett vær og årstid. Og det å komme ut i naturen og få frisk luft og gode inntrykk betyr veldig mye for meg. Vi har et favorittsted hvor vi kan sitte og se ut over elva Visterflo og over til landskapet med bondegårder på den andre siden.
October has been a real autumn month with rain, fog and sun. I think nature is beautiful in different ways regardless of the weather and season. To get out in the nature and get fresh air and good impressions means a lot to me. We have a favorite place where we can sit and look at the river Visterflo and to the countryside with farms across the river.
Slik ser det ut på en vakker solskinnsdag. This is how it looks at a lovely sunny day.
Men på en dag med tåke var det ikke mye utsikt! But on a foggy day there was not much view!
Likevel var det andre ting å se. Dråper fra den
Yet there were other things to see. Drops from the foggy air had settled on all these spider webs. I think the spider webs are there when we don't see them too.
And the fog also gave lovely impressions.
I dag var det grått og masse regn, men som kjent - Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlige klær. Så da var det bare å kle seg etter forholdene og få på seg regntøy :) Today it was dark and rainy. But as a Norwegian saying says - There is no bad weather, only bad clothing. (In Norwegian it makes a rhyme) So then it was just to dress according to the weather and get on the rain wear.
Og man kan da kose seg fordi om det regner!! And the rain can't stop me from having a great time!!
