It's been a while since I posted... some weeks are just so busy I can hardly breathe.
We took a one week vacation at a holiday cottage. So much needed!! The kids were enjoying themself, playing outside and inside and going to the hot tub every day! I took several knitting projects with me thinking I would have all the time in the world just sitting on the couch, knitting and watching the kids play! LOL I never learn!!
Everyday was waking up early with Dagur (7 a.m.), making him breakfast, making the other kids breakfast, cleaning up, making lunch, cleaning up, making teatime, cleaning up, making dinner, cleaning up, playing with the kids, feeding Dagur (he just sleeps and eats the whole day!), taking a walk with the kids, taking a car ride with the kids, baking, cleaning up some more, taking everyone to the hot tub (again and again), making everyone shower.... FALL INTO SLEEP! LOL!! But it was a GREAT time, all together :)
Before we went I finished this raven sweater and I weaved in the ends while staying in the country. Then I washed it when we came home and now this is Dagur's favorite sweater (or at least I think it is, he can't talk yet LOL)!
I've seen alot of bloggers substituting the lopi light for this Lamawool from Strikkebogen and I wanted to try it out to see what the fuzz is all about. I love it! This wool is so supersoft and it looks like the lopi, matt and fuzzy. I still love the lopi but it's fun and nice to try something new too. And this wool comes in many colors.
Last week I took Arna to a local quilt shop to pick out a backing fabric for her strawberry quilt. She chose a very pink one (of course LOL) so I better get started quilting! I'm also knitting a striped lopi sweater for Andrea and I'm slowly sewing Arna's sweatpants, I've finished one and she loves it... I just wish I could knit with my toes and sew with my hands at the same time!!
