Grey Sunday - Knitting day!

Here, a blurry camera cosy. It is my eyes that is the problem..need'em glasses. So, I finally got my hubby's cold. And yesterday I was just buying some extra yarn from Ann (Ann-torps Väv) so I could continue with my Noro, Shinano (nr 3, and nr 1). Well, as always, temptation is a bummer, it also made me buy yarn for a little scarf just to test the new Noro Aurora together with Cash Iro in old rose colour. As you can see, I updated my list and moved it down, my progress-bar's died, so... That is a confession. I realised, this lists are STILL not complete...so, understand that my stash is big - no huge! I know I should link my FO's and WIP, but, I decided to have them on my own homepage, and that is still wrestling with me.Grmmzschbla! Now - back to knitting...Grey Sunday, with ice-cream (bad throat is a great excuse!) and a fast in-between knitting... Ah!

Hi Sigrid,
I found your blog on a DogPile search for Bergå yarn. I hope you can help with some information on some yarn I received from a friend today. She was at an estate auction for an elderly knitter/weaver and picked up 4 skeins of a beautiful wine red Bergå Ryagarn Nm 2/2. The weight is 3.5 oz,and it is 100% new wool but there is no listing as to how much yarn there is in each skein. I have tried to find the company on the intenet, but have not had any luck. In one of your blog entries from August, you mention that you are knitting a sweater on Bergå that was discontinued, so I thought maybe the company did not exist anymore. Is their a chance you might know how many yards/meters there might be in each hank?
Any help you or your friends in Sweden can provide would be greatly appreciated
Happy Knitting from across the big pond!!!
