The rows of elephants are growing :) I'm using yarn from my stash, but it looks like I'll have to buy more blue and green... I had my doubts about the green (it's more bright than in the photo..), but I like it with the other colors.
This is the kins of knitting that I don't know how the final product will look like... So I have been drawing some ideas. (I know - my drawing skills are miserable..., but you got the idea.)
I asked Endre which one he liked the most, and he wanted the stripy one. And that's my favorite too ;) And with raglan sleeves = no seeming!

A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for a homework assignment.
After it was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note:
Dear Ms. Davis,
I want to be very clear on my child’s illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This photo is of me selling a shovel.

I've been meaning to make a post about this lovely blog - Fröken Skicklig, and now is a good time since she is having a give away :)
I first came across her beautiful work at flickr, witch led me to her blog. And I can't wait to the 28th when she open her etsy shop!
With the sun back and more and more minutes of sunlight each day, I long for the spring to come! But living here, that means I have to wait until the end of May for that to happend... *sigh*
So I did some crafting together with Eirin & Endre today - making some flowers to brighten up our wall while we wait for some real flowers ;)
Fins a piece of cardboard. We used an old box. Draw a flowerpot, a flower, stem and leafs.
Cut them out and paint them in bright colors :)

I've been meaning to knit this scarf since it was all over blogs here in Norway last fall. And finally I have my own ;) Baktus is one of the creatures that lives in Jens' teeth. And since there is a Baktus scarf there is also a Karius scarf ;) Baktus is in garther st while Karius is knitted in st st.
I love mindless projects like this - perfect for watching tv...
I now I look cross on the photos, but I'm not. It dosn't show, but the sun was up and the light was so sharp I had to peer against the white snow...

There's been things happening in my life in the last weeks, so both my knitting and blogging mojo got lost... *sigh* But I'm back, and so is the sun :) I'm really looking forward to lighter days and with all the cold wind the snow is hard now. Hopefully the weather will be great when the weekend comes, so we can head out in the forest for some sledding ;)
Lot of my time has been spent on Facebook too. I've been trying to stay away from it, but since "everybody" is there I had to chech it out ;) You can friend me here ;)
Even though here hasn't been much knitting, I do have a couple of socks done. Easy mindless knitting infront of the tv is ;) This is a pair of "raggsocks" for hubby.
Pattern: 52 st, k2, p2
Yarn: 100 g Mor Aase Raggegrn #6282 & 50 g Raggegrn #021
