Hello Again

It's been almost two months since I made a blog post. Not sure what happened, but it has felt good to take some time off :) But the last couple of days I have felt the urge to share my knitting with you again! Above you can see some goodies I have received in the mail. The yarn is going to be a Bloomsbury sweater. The project bag is from Eldenwood Craft and I won it in a knit along a while ago hosted by Celtic Cast On.

Spring is very late up here in the arctic this year. We still have a lot of snow on the ground and we actually had snow today and the temperature the last week or so has been around 2 C... I think we just have had a couple of days with temperatures above 10 C so far :( So we are still wearing wool here, including mittens and hats - and June is here in just a few days!! I am SO hoping we will have some warmer weather soon.

In my absent I have finished two sweaters. The first one is a Marius sweater with a round yoke. It's knitted from the bottom up traditionally, but I was not sure if I had enough yarn so I made it top down.  I had more than enough yarn ;)

The other sweater, or kofte as we call this type of cardigans here in Norway, is a Setesdalkofte. I have been living in this one since I finished it. Can you blame me due to the weather..?!

I have (of course) knitted a lot of socks :) You can find them all on my project page on Ravelry :)
It won't be so long before my next post - I have some finished projects and quite a few on the needles to share with you.
