We light four candles tonight

We light four lights tonight

Vi tenner fire lys i kveld
og lar dem brenne ned for lengsel, glede, håp og fred,
men mest allikevel for fred på denne lille jord
der menneskene bor.

-Inger Hagerup-

We light four candles tonight
and let them burn down,
we light them for our heart's wish, happiness, hope and peace
but most of all for peace on this little earth
where all the people live.

We put up and decorated the tree last weekend :)

Gingerbread house :)

The gingerbread house was also made last weekend :)  Pattern for this house can be found in the book "Nå er det jul igjen" by Gerd Alfsen. And we visited Pepperkakebyen (Gingerbread city).
The last week have been filled with mitten knitting, buying the last Christmas presents and watching the kids sing in a Christmas play at their school.

Selbu mittens

Pattern: 9. Barnevott / Child's mitten by Rauma Designs
Yarn: Silja sock yarn and some pink yarn from my stash
Needles: 2,5 mm
Size: I hoped these would fit Eirin, but they turned out just too small for her. So I must knit her a new pair...

Selbu mittens

Pattern: Annemor #4 by Terri Shea
Yarn: Viking baby ull
Needles: 2,5 mm
Size: They fit Endre, but they are very narrow so if I should knit them again I would add more st.

Totoro mittens

Pattern: Norwegian Totoro Mittens by brella
Yarn: A little less than 100 g of each colour. I've used Mor Aase superwash
Needles: 3 mm
Size: Adult. I've added st so it would be bigger.
