Happy Woolly Easter

It is said that all norwegian travel to the mountains to go skiing during easter. Well, that is a lie told every year - under ten percent does that. The rest of us are knitting. LOL!

Since I do not like skiing, and prefer knitting, I just as well started a new scarf. I had this Kauni yarn just lying there screaming to be used. I should have overheard it. But I did not.

I tried out another project but encountered problems increasing stitched at the end of a row. As the temper also reached the end of the row I capitulated and went for the easy solution: The Hitchhiker. I have knitted one earlier - have a look at how it turns out.

And this is the great thing - I do not have to stand waiting for a car. This is about hitchhiking with needles and a rainbow. The yarn will change colors and end up in a rainbow. I just had to add a stripe in it. I could easily get bored if I did not.

So, here we are. Me knitting a hitchhiker again when the rest of the country is skiing in the mountains.

Happy easter every one - and stay safe. And most of all: Enjoy doing things you absolutely love doing.

  2. Så nydelig det blir, jeg elsker Kauni garnet! Igår var vi en tur på kino med våre små i en annen by, i senteret hvor kinoen var fant jeg jammen en garnbutikk som t.o.m. var åpen, de solgte Kauni, gjett hva som ble med hjem... ;-) Ha en fortsatt fin påske og kos deg med Hitchhikeren, jeg strikket min i WM...

  4. Happy Easter Lone! I went downhill skiing a few times when I was much younger, but never really enjoyed it. I would be much happier knitting, too! I can't wait to see your scarf finished!

  5. God påskeinnspurt til deg også! Flott skjerf!
    Har også hatt hjemmepåske - har benyttet den til bl.a. å rydde opp i/rydde vekk UFO-er. Befriende å ha litt færre prosjekter å konsentrere seg om (selv om det fortsatt er mange nok...).
    Rart det der med de ti prosentene som drar til fjells. Det har jeg lest også, men alle mine venner og alle naboene er på fjellet. Kanskje de utgjør alle de ti prosentene???

    Påsken vel overstått...uten ski på beina! Det er nok over 20 år siden jeg hadde det, så jeg er også en av dem som er hjemme i påsken med pinner og garn ;)
    Det er så lekkert med disse papegøyefargene, som jeg kaller dem. Sjalet blir fargefint og flott! Kanskje jeg skulle strikke et sjal igjen.....?
