Home for a rest!

I’ve just had a week of visual delights! Another trip to Norway is something we have been promising for a very long time. We finally made it!

I’ll probably share a few pictures from time to time – but today I’m catching up on a little rest and emails. They certainly fill the inbox while away.

You’ll be pleased to know that I managed to find some yarn shops – in Stavanger and Bergen. There is even one on Bergen Railway station!

I’ll catch you up with progress and more in a few days. In the meantime – enjoy the above.

The part of April that isn’t finished!

Yes, the Spirit blanket! 

This week I have, so far, managed to finish two more sets of 24 using this subtle shade of orange!


I think I have 10 more combinations (most without the orange) to do, but I may have miscounted. 


Next week will see no progress on this, but more about that another day. 

Back on dry land!

Today I’m planning on returning to my main project. It’s been hanging fire for a while as I wanted to keep it under wraps while I was away from home with its intended recipient.

Returning to an Ocean theme is appropriate as I have just spent four days on the water.

Blue seas and blue skies – and we weren’t that far from home! I managed a little crochet – but have to admit that it was only three rows on the red herring.

They have both reached approximately the same stage, now the pink and cream will have to wait. Look – I’m all set up and ready to rumble!
