My new companion. This year's birthday present to/from my husband/myself. A complete different experience than the compact camera we've had for the past three years. I'm really, really happy for it.

Truck II

I do knit in summer. It just doesn't look like I have done much knitting lately. But I have.

This vest is not another Truck revisit, it's a brand new one. Smaller this time, and with a few improvements. And I have written down the pattern, so it will be available in a few months.


Truck II [@ravelry] specs:
Pattern: Truck! by Tora Frøseth
Size: 1 year
Needles: 3.5 and 3.0 mm
Yarn: 80 g of Hifa Alv held double

Buttons

Buttons!Half a year ago, I complained about having too few buttons in my stash. The problem is solved. I now have all of my grandmother's buttons in my stash, and there are quite a few beauties among them. Actually, from now on, I wouldn't be surprised if some of my design ideas emerged from those buttons..

196 and back

After a little week in the mountains, I'm online again. Apart from all the e-mails, according to bloglines, there are 196 blog posts waiting to be enjoyed. I guess I'll have to give it a few days. Reading in a hurry isn't the way I like it. There is not so much inspiration coming from rushing through.

I have been struggling with writing down a pattern for Truck! the past weeks, and one thing I've learned, I certainly prefer working the other way. Creating a pattern out of something I made months ago is not at all easy.

Meanwhile, enjoy my result in the Flickr game. I found it here, and you'll find the rules there as well. I like looking at the result, the colors are great! Play along if you want to!
