Honourable mention

I've received an award from Laughingmuse.

I'm honoured...

I'm very flattered and honoured! It came out of nowhere, on a day I really needed a little pick me up... It's always good to know ones creativity is appreciated.

8 of my favourite creative blogs are
Ann - med pinner
Hespetre - the other Guro
The keyboard biologist

The rules are as follows for the nominees:
1. Copy the award to your site.
2. Link to the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate 8 other bloggers.
4. Link to those on your blog.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you nominated.

I always enjoy it when I stumble upon other peoples awards on their blogs. It gives me a chance to peek into what they enjoy to read and look at. It's a good chance to see some new things and maybe befriend a few new blogs.

Other than this award; what else is new?

I feel like everything I work on is progressing very slowly these days. I am also finding myself casting on a number of new things, or just plain working on stuff with no purpose. I realised on sunday I've crocheted 20-ish flowers with no plan for them. They are scattered around the sofa and inbetween my wips in a not-good way.

The flower facination started with this

Crochet baby hat

A very cute toddler hat found in my newest knitting book; 101 luxury one skein wonders. A great little book with a lot of promising patterns. The problem with this hat (not considering the funny looking thingy on the top) is that I don't know any little girls who can wear it at the moment... Ah, well!

To make knitterly things progress even more slowly I'm trying to justle up not one, but two different knitting patterns. Procrastinating A LOT! I'm also napping regularly in the afternoons in stead of knitting (or doing house work).

A last note: I WENT TO COPENHAGEN AND DID NOT VISIT A YARN STORE! I did not know that could ever happen to a knitter.

Kjøbenhavn uten strikkebutikk!!! *sjokka*

Oi, takk. Så koselig. :)

Må si jeg er nokså misunnelig på rokken din. Foreløpig er det litt tidlig å investere i en dyr rokk for meg (har jeg egentlig tid til mer hobby nå?), men det ser deilig ut å ha en ny en. Hva med noen actionbilder?

Spinnekurset mitt er avsluttet for denne gang, og jeg har levert inn lånerokken. Heldigvis kom håndteinen i posten akkurat i dag, så da går det nok bra.
