Three things to make me happy

1. Knitting with my feet in green grass.

2. Flowers in my garden. I have been out there every day lately, and yesterday the yellow goodness was finally there! My lovely yellow tulips and these little ones which name I do not know bring me so much joy!

3. Bare skin in the sun. My skin haven't been kissed by any kind of sun in a long time, so be sure to wear sunglasses in my proximity.

The girly summer top is about half way done, and I'm actually enjoying working with the cotton yarn. I'm very surprised and a bit confused, not sure what it is they've done to make the yarn behave so not like ordinary cotton.

The pattern is a good one to work with, too. Quite mindless, but with interruptions in the monotony at apt intervals. A nice little project for sunny afternoons, while drinking my ice coffee. Which could have been a fourth happy thing, if hadn't it disappeared so fast. It always does. I wonder why..

For et utrolig - utrolig! - bilde det var det med det grønne gresset, de noe bleke føttene og den strikka overdelen din! Nesten surrealistisk :)

Tusen takk!

(Og føttene trenger lufting, ja - men jeg advarte mot blending, gjorde jeg ikke..? :-D)

I love the top! The colour is quite nice and the pattern very summery. I agree with the feet in the grass and the sun on the skin, although once the humidity hits I am running for shade and shelter!

Oi, så spennende med ny topp! Gleder meg til å se den ferdig!

Sikken en fin top. Vi kan sammen blænde de andre i solen :-)
Du spurgte ang Geilsk silke/hør:
340 m/100 g passer til p 3-3½. Når jeg får strikket skal der nok komme en vurdering. Men jo det er ikke så blødt som uld eller silke. Bengte har også andet lækkert garn bl.a. strømpegarn i uld/silke/polyamid, perfekt til børnestrik

Kjempefin topp! De små tulipanene kjenner jeg bare under navnet villtulipaner. De er utrolig søte.

Og en ting til; det hadde vært utrolig hyggelig om du hadde tatt deg en tur til strikkecafèen i Oslo en gang. Så hvis du plutselig er ledig en tirsdags kveld så vet du antagelig hvor du finner oss?

Thank you all for the nice comments! I LOVE having those (guess I'm not alone..)!

Og Guro, jeg dukker nok opp en tirsdag :-)
