Getting through July

I'm allmost done with the socks for my friend. Just a couple of more repeats of the pattern and the toe. Piece of cake to get them done before Friday. It might sound funny, but I've knitted a strand of my hair in each sock to really give him a part of me and added some good feelings to the stitches. You know, I know he loves me and I love him. We're siblings with different parents. He's on vacation now and I really miss the conversations we have and the common feeling we have for scouting. Actually, I think I miss scouting in general now. July is a slow month. No meetings. I miss my friends. The socks I'm knitting, I'm knitting them with string and the love I feel for my scouting family. I'm so lucky to have such good friends. Now, I'm off to go knit some more on these socks so I can finish them soon.

sunday afternoon


I've been a busy girl again. Love my life right now, eventhough it's way to intensive to hold on to for a long time. I'll just have to wait and see where I'll end up. Anyway, had my scouting camp last week - allmost drowned because it rained ALL THE TIME. And now I a couple of low weeks so I can concentrate on work and my home again.

Have I been knitting? Not so much. Did finish a pair of socks for a friend (but forgot to take a picture) and finished the arm/legwarmers you can see in the picture above. Love this really electric green and I'm sure I'll enjoy wearing them.

Now, the new project. I'm making some socks for a special friend of mine. I've grown to appreciate him a lot in the last couple of months. He's proven to be a good friend and companion. And he has his birthday next week, but since he's on vacation till august, I have some time to compleet this pair.
