Hmm, looks like there's more reading going on than knitting,
but that's just on the photo ;)
I am knitting quite a lot as I am trying to finish the mittens by friday, so I can cast on the TTL Mystery Shawl :) I got the skein of yarn from Candy Skein today - and it's such a beautiful colour!
Knitting: Well, obviously it's the Octopus mittens on the right. I'm past the thumb on the second one, so not much left. Eirin is just waiting for me to finish them so she can have them :)
The purple/pink is my wingspan. I casted on yesterday and are halfway through the second triangle. So it's a fast and easy project to work on, perfect for tv knitting.
Reading: I finished Labyrinth last night. After a (very) slow start, the book got more exciting, but it never gave me that feeling of "I just can't put this book away". . . I have the next book in the trilogy, Sepulchre, in my shelf, but I'm waiting a bit before I read it. And hoping it will be a bit more exciting to read ;)
Endre and I have also finished Hugo Cabret. I think he liked it better than me, and I acyually think the movie might be better than the book . . . We have started to read a new book before bedtime - Ottoline and the Yellow Cat. I like this sort of books for reading out loud :) Eirin have read the two first ones and she liked them a lot. I think we have to buy the third one as Ottoline travels to Norway in it!
As I didn't start to read Sepulchre, I felt the need for a guilty pleasure book. So I picked up Fantasy Lovers by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I have read book 1 and 2 in the Dark Hunters series in norwegian, but they only translated those two books. . . When I look on Goodreads I see that if I shoul try to follow the figures in this series I have to read two, maybe three other series at the same time as they seem to merge into each other. . . Not sure if I bother though.
Anyway, I also have a lighter book I can take with me and read everywhere without loosing the tread ;) Storm Warning by Nora Roberts. So far it looks like it's going to be a little bit of mystery and a little bit of love. Perfect combination.
And last, a new book that came in the mail today. It's a crochet book by Tove Fevang. It's mostly potholders, but some other things too. And it's a bit of Tunisian crochet there too. I have tried Tunisian crochet, but can't say I am any good at it. So maybe I finally can learn it and at the same time I might get to use up some cotton stash ;)
I have two FO's too today. Two bright pink dishcloths to brighten up my day :)
