On The Needles :: Echoes From Karelia


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: I've been wanting to knit a pair of Echoes from Karelia socks since I found the pattern some time ago on Ravelry. I started them a few weeks ago, but after the fun part (the stranded knitting) was done they have been laying in my knitting basket... I have picked them up and have decided to finish them before I cast on a new pair!

Reading: I like a good crime/thriller and have loved the Odd Singsaker series. This is the 4th book - Paradisplaneten, and although it is a bit more fantasy like than the other books in the series, I like it a lot. But then again I really like a good fantasy/mystery book too :) I don't think it's been translated into english yet.
In Trondheim a fireman is hoisted to put the russelua on the head of the Olav Tryggvason statue. By Tryggvason feet they find a human head. The head belongs to a man from Strindheim who have been beheaded.
In London the secretary of the Royal Society is killed the same way. By the body is a message: You will lose the helmet.
What is the connection between these events and a brotherhood inspired by the English philosopher Francis Bacon, who died in 1626?
Odd Singsaker is back - this gray-haired, persistent investigator from Trøndelag. He is on sick leave and prepared for quiet days at home with his young, beautiful wife Felicia Stone. But a gift from the librarian Siri Holm has already wrapped them into the case. Singsaker have no choice, and we are on a journey through the centuries and between continents, where a book is crucial for historical events and time and again triggers murder. - from Goodreads-


  1. I love the colorwork on those socks. Looks like they'll be really cozy when you finish!

  2. Your socks are lovely. I love the stranded work. I've made lots of socks but I want to do stranded pair some day.

  3. En god krim, og et spennende strikketøy er perfekt nå når høsten nærmer seg. Sokkene dine blir flotte!

  4. I love seeing your colorwork projects. I'm itchin' to start one.
