So short update before taking off tomorrow!

So, the studentjubilee, interesting statistics...8 from our bunch of definitely above 25 some, zero (!!) from parallell and 5 from the other parallell. Just a very lousy outcome. Then I realized, Hey, it is noisy, we can't really speak with each other, the food is good, but I know noone outside my class, since I went to the US as an exchange student (Fresno, CA - class of 80!) so, I went only one year with them. I understand that it would be more fun just to meet. without the surrounding. Wow, how your memory goes after 25 years. So. Dear N3b in Karlstad (find your way here yet?). You were amazing! I think I got back some great memories of that time, and it is such a warm smart gang of people. Of course my throat choaked, and I feel that ache coming on at night... so I was early (around 2ish in bed!) Well, good hotel breakfast (a picture from Statt - my room) and then I went to the Värmland museum, which had a GREAT exhibition on.
A lot of knitting.... I do not want to spoil the fun, so I only give you one picture! Unfortunately the knittingkits were still not in the museumshop so... Sorry. No business from me. But the Latte was great, and after knitting on the train back home, hosting our australian, indian, malaysian friends I'm packing. So- It will be VERY quiet in this webspace until 30th of May or so - but then, this blog will be jammed packed with strange yarn-chasing stories from the world (and picture of all I knitted on the 11 hours flights! and all conference). Enjoy

Well, dear Susanna. You are not reading my blog. You are just looking at the pictures. Read again. It is FROM THE MUSEUM EXHIBITION! It is an anchient pattern. You can buy THE KIT from the museum. I have no idea, but - I would say, real easy to copy (a do not want to do that though, if I do not have permission). The picture is like an AD for your to figure out (Värmlands museum) that you should go there or mail. But as they told me - they do not have the kit yet. Maybe around mid june.

Dearest Hpny Knits! No worries. Unfortunately, I'm too paranoid giving my passwords out on any unsafe connection = internetcafes - since my work is to know about that. So will not happen! But.. I will have FUN!

Well shame on me!

In my defense, the colors and the pattern so called my name that I immediately emailed you and then forgot to go back and finish reading...

I will definitely be checking in with the museum (and I would never ask you to copy anything, nor would I do it myself; particularly not if they are making a kit available) and purchasing a kit when they become available.
