Rest in peace

Today we light a candle in honour of the magnificent Umai av Enerhaugen who sadly passed over the rainbowbridge today after a period of illness. She was a great Shiba Inu and will live on in her children and grandchildren.

When I got home today my yarn for the Halloween Myster Shawl was waiting for me! Hooray!
It's so beautiful!
And I should get the beads for the shawl tomorrow and maybe even the needles I need.
Right now I'm terrified of winding this wonderful yarn into a ball though.

The yarn is Zen Yarn Gardens Bellisimo Lace made of 70% Alpaca 20% Silk and 10% Cashmere in the colour Midnight Velvet. It's a skein of approx. 100 g or 1300 yards.

Feeling better

I'm feeling better today, at least enough to go to work tomorrow, don't want to miss another day of double money.

I went yarn-shopping today. Hunting for the perfect yarn-combo for my first Pratchgan-square. I didn't get the perfect purple yarn I found but I'm going to use two other yarns instead trying to make it a bit sparkly =) I already have fluffy green and fluffy orange and I got some fluffy Yellow today as well =) I'm gonna do a swatch of them tomorrow.

It feels like my Forest Canopy Shawl (FCS) is an endless project, even though I only have 16 rows left right now. Might be able to do 2 rows before bedtime tonight though. And a couple more tomorrow.

Goal for tomorrow: Finish last body pattern repeat of Forest Canopy Shawl! If I do two rows tonight I only have four left for tomorrow. And then I can start with the edge.

Bea is the best dog ever. All cuddly with me when I was feeling sick yesterday. Not complainen at all about the really short walks around the medow. Here's a pic of her when we were out walking earlier this week. For some reason I can't seem to get her to stand up in front of the camera :/

Know I'm gonna go knit on my FCS! And then go to bed.

Nite nite!

Been sick all day long. :/
Didn't even have the energy to knit :( I did manage to make some stichmarkers though. A jumpring, a bead and some superglue and voilá!

And tomorrow the first clue for the Halloween Mystery Shawl -08 gets released, yay! I havn't gotten my yarn yet but I can always use my extra time for bead-hunting and making sure I understand the pattern =)

At last...

I finally decided to create my own blog.
So here it is.
I will be writing about my life, my Shiba Inu Bea and my knitting.
