Trellis the tourist

Trellis was supposed to go visit his new owner at the hospital today, and then go home wiht them. But that was canselled, and Trellis was a bit sad. To cheer him up I decided Trellis should do some touristy things in Oslo. Because tourists are always happy!(?)

We went to Akershus fortress

Trellis thought it was such a nice place to show off his great green-ness

and pretty buttons

He hung out with Norways national monument

Hugged the big guns

Trellis was very small compared to Franklin

In the end we went home and had norwegian pancakes for dinner, on the porch.

Trellis is 127 grams of 100% superwash wool from danish yarn manufacturer HP Løve. He is a bit short on seed stitch in places, but please don't tell him that, he does not know it himself yet. He is going to be just the right size for his new owner to wear sometime around Christmas.

So nice of you to distract Trellis from the fact he was not going home with his new owner :) Looks like a fun-filled day!

It seems like Trellis had a great day out, even though he didn't make it to meet his new owner. And what a great looking sweater he is, too!

trellis is a beautiful sweater - and he must be tired after such a long day. Fun to see the pics of Oslo too - thansk for sharing.

Trellis has more fun than I do. Maybe I should visit you and pretend to be a sweater.

I took a sock to Akershus Fortress once. It must be a good place for the knitting.
Oslo is a beautiful city! (Despite the cranes!)
Your trellis is beautiful and will make a lovely gift.
