Sailing and knitting

Sailing cleanses the soul. When I just thought summer was by, my lovely and I went to the boat. It was raining. But we were packed. Waiting for it to clear up, thunder and a great meal at Bullandö Krog, we went out for two fantastic nights in the archepelago, with sunshine, stars and full moon, and magical warm swims in the evening. Julia on the knitting needels, and now I'm starting in the neck so it is soon "just" the sleeves left. Well, I got stung by a whasp (actually, I squeezed the poor thing between my arm and torso). And I slept like I have never slept before. The astma disappear, and we had great food. A Dajm-ice cream at Möja. This morning leaving Säck we got a new record speed on 7.15 knots, on our little Alice, and we had not all sails out. Tomorrow starts the serious business, so I guess the summer "frenzy" of publishing knitting trips will be different. But who knows? I have not yet taken any pictures of all my knitting progress this summer. Actually I really got into spinning again. Ahh, what a Caffe Latte can do! Take care out there, and be nice to each other (and me ;-)

Hej Sigrid!

Your vacation sounds simply relaxing! I am just a little jealous!

I saw that you met Solveig. I just took a class on Bohus Stickning at a knitting conference here in Chicago. I saw pictures of ägget and gould. I just emailed Solveig and ordered them. Have you ever seen some of the vintage sweaters? Amazing.
