In August last year there was a knitting market in Kullåsparken, and then I was tempted to buy some yarn from Bitta in Bittami's Design. She dyes yarn in the most beautiful shades of color. I fell for a light gray yarn, with a little white and color dripping here and there. The yarn is lovely soft merino wool with nylon. It's the kind of yarn that's almost too nice to use :) But when the July challenge in the Socks From Stash group was: " Knit socks using a yarn that you really love." I got a push to use it. I chose a pattern called By the Seine River, design Dona Knits. It suited well to the challenge of the Sock Knitters Anonymous group which was Nature. These socks are going to be a favorite!

Juliutfordring i Socks from Stash: Et garn du virkelig elsker
Juliutfordringen i Sock Knitters Anonymous : Nature
I Sock Knitters Anonymouse var det også en mysteriestrikk. Der valgte jeg et garn som jeg absolutt IKKE elsker, Adlibris socki fine. Nå var det andre gang jeg prøvde det garnet og jeg liker det ikke. Grunnen til at jeg kjøpte det var at jeg syntes det var fine farger. Burde nok bare kjøpt et nøste og testet først. Jeg har to nøster til av det, så får se om jeg bruker det opp. Kan jo bli hverdagssokker.
Mysteriestrikken var designet av Very busy monkey, og var et morsomt mønster å strikke. Jeg strikket med pinner 2,25mm. In Sock Knitter's Anonymous there was also a mystery knit. There I chose a yarn that I absolutely do NOT love, Adlibris socki fine. Now it was the second time I tried that yarn and I don't like it. The reason I bought it was because I thought it had nice colors. I should have bought only one and tested first. I have more of it, maybe I can use it for everyday socks.
The mystery socks was designed by Very busy monkey, and was a fun pattern to knit. I knitted with needles 2.25mm.

Juli er ferietid og tid for sommerbesøk. Først hadde vi besøk av våre to eldste sønner, Torbjørn og Kristian. Det ble ikke bare ferie for dem, de måtte også hjelpe til med litt beskjæring i hagen. Vi er veldig takknemlige for hjelp av yngre krefter! July is time for summer holidays and first we had visits from our two oldest sons, Torbjørn and Kristian. It was not only relaxing holiday for them, they also had to work with some pruning in the garden. We are very thankful for help from the younger people!
Og etterpå smakte det godt med pizza! Tradisjonell familiefavoritt - pizza nr. 8 fra Paradis Pizza :) And after work, pizza was good! The traditional family favorite - pizza nr. 8 from Paradise Pizza :)
Senere var yngste sønn Thomas og samboer Julie her. Thomas måtte også jobbe litt, han fikk i oppdrag å bytte pakning på en kran og reparere en skjøteledning som ble litt forkortet i løpet av den tidligere beskjæringen :) Later, youngest son Thomas and his girlfriend Julie were here. Thomas also had to work a bit, he had to change gasket on a faucet and repair an extension cord which was slightly shortened during the previous pruning :)
Det var så lenge siden vi hadde spilt krokket, så vi lagde våre egne regler :) It's been so long since we've played croquet, so we made our own rules :)
Og publikum var på plass! And the audience was in place!
