Now it was time for a finished project again. This sweater has such a nice name, it's called TAKKNEMLIG, which means GRATEFUL. I bought the yarn package with pattern, to reduced prise a couple of years ago. I was a little worried when I looked at it and saw that the yarn contained alpaca. I had an allergic reaction to knitting with Viking Alpaca Storm. This yarn is called Viking Alpaca Bris. I thought I would try carefully and see. And it went well! The whole sweater is knitted without any problem. It is so delicious and soft, and nice with the light color in spring. It was quick to knit on needles 6mm. So I am grateful to have gotten such a nice new sweater. 😊
Out in nature, signs of spring appear that also make us grateful. The first signs of spring in Norway are not that big in size, but what a joy when you find these little yellow Coltsfoot that appear among dry, withered grass! The flowers are only about 2cm.
En dag så jeg denne flokken med trekkfugler som kom fra syd. De var litt for høyt oppe til å se tydelig hvilke fugler det var, men det var imponerende . One day I saw this flock of migratory birds coming from the south. They were a little too high up to clearly see which birds it was, but it was impressive.
Og selv om vi også denne påsken måtte unnvære besøk fra våre kjære barn, og denne pandemien dessverre herjer fremdeles, så har vi mye å være takknemlige for. Vi har feiret påske og budskapet om at Jesus døde for våre synder, men vant over døden og er vår levende frelser som gir oss håp. And even though we also had to do without visits from our dear children this Easter, and this pandemic is unfortunately still raging, we have much to be grateful for. We have celebrated Easter and the message that Jesus died for our sins, but won over death and is our living Savior who gives us hope.
Jeg er også takknemlig for at ingen i vår familie har vært smittet og syke. Min kjære mann har fått første dose av vaksinen, og det ser ut til å ikke være så lenge til jeg også får den. I am also grateful that no one in our family has been sick from Covid-19. My dear husband has received the first dose of the vaccine, and it does not seem to be that long until I get it too.Vår yngste sønn og samboer skulle flytte i løpet av påskeuken og kjøre over fjellet fra Voss til Trondheim. Den dagen de dro var det tørre fine veier å kjøre, turen tok 10.5 time. De andre dagene har det stadig vært meldinger i nyhetene om snøfokk, stengte veier eller kolonnekjøring på fjellovergangene. Så vi er takknemlige for at de er trygt innflyttet i sin nye leilighet i Trondheim. Our youngest son and girlfriend was to move during the Easter week and drive over the mountains from Voss to Trondheim. The day they left there were dry nice roads to drive, the trip took 10.5 hours. The other days there have been constant reports in the news about snowdrifts, closed roads or column driving at the mountain passes. So we are grateful that they had an uncomplicated journey and are safely moved into their new apartment in Trondheim.
Nå får vi håpe at det blir fart på vaksineringen og at situasjonen sakte men sikkert kan bli bedre. Now we hope that the vaccination will speed up and that the situation can slowly but surely improve.
