FO :: ZigZagular Socks


I started these back in September... and found out it was time to finish the second sock the other day. I'm glad I did, because they turned out super cool! The colour are a bit brighter in real life than my camera can handle. If you look at the photo on Instagram, which is a bit too bright, you can somehow get the idea of how bright they are ;) I have another ball of this fluormania in  purple and can't wait to cast on a pair with it!

Macro Monday :: Duppesoleie


Duppesoleie or Hvite Dupper (Ranunculus aconitifolius 'Flore Pleno') is a beautiful perennial. I got mine a few years ago so they have not become big and voluminous yet. I'm not sure what the english name for it is, but it might be Fair Maid's of France..?

On The Needles :: Tallulah's Heart


What are you knitting and reading this week?
I'm joining Ginny at Small Things for Yarn Along and Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm and Craft On.

Knitting: With the cold and rainy weather we are having here in the north, a pair of mittens seems just right to have on the needles... The pattern is Tallulah's Heart.

Reading: I finished Drums of Autumn this moring - loved it! So of course I had to pick up The Fiery Cross right away, hoping it is just as good.

1771: the Colony of North Carolina stands in an uneasy balance, with the rich, colonial aristocracy on one side and the struggling pioneers of the backcountry on the other.
Between them stands Jamie Fraser, a man of honour, a man of worth. Exiled from his beloved Scotland, he is at last possessed of the land he has longed for. By his side his extraordinary wife, Claire, a woman out of time and out of place, blessed with the uneasy gift of the knowledge of what is to come. In the past, that knowledge has brought both danger and deliverance to Jamie and Claire. Now it could be a flickering torch that will light their way through the perilous years ahead - or might ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.

Macro Monday :: Lingonberry Flowers


It's not the best photo as I din't bring my camera with me when we went on a walk in the forest the other day. So an Instagram photo is all I have of these tiny lingonberry flowers. It looks like we will be able to pick a lot of lingonberries this fall.
