Endelig i mål

Siste sting med hvitt på hvitt idag,
og ikke et minutt for tidlig!
Dette sendes til Husfliden for ferdigstilling
så snart jeg kommer til Norge til uken.

Har jobbet jevnt og trutt
med bunadskjorte brodering de siste månedene.
Selve stakken fikk jeg ferdig før sommeren,
så den er nå montert og klar.

Det har blitt lite strikking innimellom,
gav meg ikke helt lov til det...
Så nå skal det bli godt
å bruke pinnene igjen.

Startet  på en lue i går kveld,
kanskje jeg får dette mønsteret skrevet
i løpet av julen.

Ha en fin advent tid!

December trip in the desert

Yesterday we had a great trip,
three families in three cars.
(Make sure to click on the pictures for better view)

A safety concern driving in the desert
is if the car brake down.
So never go alone!

 Hi, another car!

One can feel far from civilization, some times,
travelling on road tracks
marked with rocks.

There are always room, even if all the seats are taken.

We covered several sites.

First stop was at lake Qarun.
Great to get out of the dust and traffic in Cairo,
and rest our eyes on this peaceful lake.

The fishermen were in their boats,
gathering their nets.

A little morning fog was still hanging over the lake,
giving it a soft frame.

Next stop was the Waterfalls at Wadi Fayoum Oases.
Waterfall in the desert?

However the beautiful colored boats 

and the fishermen
caught my interest.

Also the horses,
well decorated with colorful saddles,

and this colorful woman,
selling her shell-bead necklaces
hanging from her head.
(She charged me for the picture...)

On the shore,
a shelter for the sun,
or maybe a bed for the night.

Easy Sweater


Its done,
it was a quick and easy project.

So no I can think about something
more inspiring to make...
If you like it,
you can find the pattern,
written in both English
and Norwegian,

Desert trip tomorrow!

Great yarn...

...and great price too!

Shopping at Tuesday Morning
always result in
coming out of the store 
with more than I planned for
going in..
I happens that I find
some skeins of yarn,
but I never found a treasure 
like this before.

Araucania  Milodon
to a low price of $ 8.99 a skein,
four of them!
100% wool, hand dyed in Chile,
at the moment
being transformed into a sweater

for my favorite 5 year old.
The question is,
can I get it done in time
for my trip to Norway.
