Still raining...


"Water is the driving force of all nature." - Leonardo da Vinci

Well, one of us is enjoying the wet and cold "summer" we are having... Endre have spent hours in all the puddles the rain have made the last week. And yes, he was soaking wet through 3 layers of clothes. And yes, we're still wearing wool clothes belive it or not... We had a glimpse of sun Friday and yesterday and the temperatures become a shocking 22 C over night, but today it's back to below 10 C, rain and wind :( They say we haven't had a colder June since 1982... But one just have to make the best of it and there's still July and August left ;)


With the rain, it's been more time to sit indoors and knit. I knitted this for my sisters 18th birthday :)


Pattern: Traveling Woman. I made 4 repeats of pattern A before I knitted pattern B.
Yarn: 126 g Silja.
Needles: 4 mm.


And Endre & Eirin have got some new headwear :) A crochet hat and a headband.



  1. Well you have been a knitting machine! Love the shawl. So summery. I know my daughter would love that headband. Perfect color for a little girl :)

  2. The shawl is gorgeous! What a lucky sister! The crochet hat is so cute!!!

  3. wow....det var neimen ikke mye til sommer nei. Krysser fingrene og håper juli blir bedre!

    Men nydelig sjal da! Skikkelig lekkert i hvitt. Og fine hodeplagg til barna, huff tenke seg til at dere trenger det nå!! :synpatiklem:

  4. Sorry about the cold summer. It wasn't very summery around here either and then BAM we're in the 90's now. Ugh. Too hot. Hopefully you'll get some sun soon. Love the shawl and the headwear!

  5. Your Traveling Woman is very pretty. Lucky sister! We've been in the 90s (Farenheit) for over a week now so I'd be up for a day or two or cool temperatures!

  6. En fordel med kaldt vær i juni er jo at da kan man bruke alle de flotte klærne som mamma har strikket! Nydelige unger!

    Jeg tok turen hit fra Ravelry.

  7. Traveling Woman looks lovely in white! I wouldn't have thought of that.

  8. The shawl looks absolutely amazing.

    Seems your were very busy when trapped indoors due to the rain, crafty.
