SOMMER/SUMMER

Junisokkene jeg strikket er jeg ikke helt fornøyd med. Det vil si, mønsteret er flott, men garnet passet dårlig. Juni oppgaven i gruppen Socks from Stash var Strikk en Gansey/ Guernsey stil sokk.  Jeg valgte mønsteret Great Gansey fra Traci Heiner. Garnet er Adlibris Socki Fine. Mønsteret dannes av rette og vrange masker, men med dette garnet blir ikke mønsteret tydelig, det blir for utflytende.
I am not entirely happy with The June socks I knitted. The pattern is nice, but the yarn did not fit well. The June challenge in the group Socks from Stash, was Knit a Gansey / Guernsey style sock. I chose the Great Gansey pattern from Traci Heiner. The yarn is Adlibris Socki Fine. The pattern is made by knit and purl, but with this yarn it does not show well.

FERIETUR I JUNI
Jeg foretrekker å dra på tur før skoleferien, da er det ikke så mye folk og stress. Min kjære Bjørn og jeg leide et koselig gammelt hus like utenfor Strømstad noen dager i juni. Huset ble bygd i 1895 av en stenhogger og hans hustru. Vi hadde en flott utsikt til en åker hvor det var rådyr, og til og med villsvin! I prefer to go on holiday before the school holidays, then there is not so much people and stress. My dear Bjørn and I rented a charming old house just outside Strømstad a few days in June. The house was built in 1895 by a stone worker and his wife. We had a great view, with deer and wild boars as well!


Det er mye villsvin i Sverige, men det var første gang vi så det. De så store ut selv om de var på den andre siden av åkeren. Jeg er glad vi ikke møtte dem i skogen!
There is a lot of wild boar in Sweden, but it was the first time we saw it. They looked big even 
though they were on the other side of the field. I am glad we didn't meet them in the woods! 



Vi gikk tur i vakker furuskog ved innsjøen Färingen.
We walked in beautiful pine forests by Lake Färingen. 



Der var en hengebro over til en liten øy. Heldigvis sto det et skilt om at det var fuglereservat og adgang forbudt frem til 15.juni. Vi var der 11. juni :) Jeg liker ikke slike gyngebroer! Men min medvandrer måtte prøve den 😁!  There was a suspension bridge over to a small island. Fortunately, there was a sign that said it was bird sanctuary and access prohibited until 15 June. We were there June 11th :) I do not like such "moving" bridges! But my husband had to try it 😁!





Det ble også en tur til Capri! Det er et populært badested med fin sandstrand, og svaberg. Men temperaturen fristet ikke til  å bade. Fordelen var jo at vi hadde stedet for oss selv :) We also had a trip to Capri! It is a popular seaside resort with  sandy beach, and rocky shores. But the temperature did not tempt to bathe. The good thing about that was we had the place for ourselves :)






Ved huset var det en stor flott Rhododendron. By the house there was a  beautiful big Rhododendron.












Tenker på alle dem som i årenes løp har gått gjennom denne grinda......
Thinking of all those who over the years have gone through this gate.......

I love old houses! Beautiful scenery on your trip. I wouldn't have liked that suspension bridge either. Usually when I go on things like that, someone decides it would be "fun" to jump and make the bridge swing. Not fun, in my opinion. I'm glad you didn't meet those wild boars up close!
