ECF - Spring and stories...books..

I couldn't believe this week. Wild strike among Danish SAS (plane) cabin personnel, and I was stuck in Copenhagen. After confusing information and 5 hours (!) in 2 different queues, I was shipped to Sörups herrgård for a great buffe with wine instead of going off to Dusseldorf. Of course - without luggage. Interesting experience. No Asthma medicine, not even a toothbrush.. Anyhow, after inteste days with no knitting and some airport crazy shopping (NOW I know what a "hipster" is...) I came home, and after a long hard sleep, I woke up to a long weekend into my garden bursting of flowers. OK, I paid a little visit to Knitlab (a new yarnshop in Stockholm), and Yep, as new yarnshops look like, a bit careful, but great. A lot of Manos the Uraguay (great colours) and Alchemy -mohair-silk (with one small skein - 215 SEK = 31.27 USD!) It is just too much But those colours.. Ahh.. Anyhow, I got some more interesting books "Victorian Lace Today" and Pam Allens "Lace's Style", not to forget "Heriloom Knitting".... Im Laced up!and ohhh so many beautiful pictures. Anyhow, Im working like a "dog" to both do tax declaration, clean up the garden and finish the wonderful Enterlac before work begans again. Hugs and kisses, and maybe, just maybe - I will be going to Texas about two weeks. But, nothing is set in stone! Then Mary, you better be home for a tour of your LYS's ;-)

That sound horrible! Hope you were reunited with your luggage.

That's expensive. It's ~USD19.00 for the Alchemy Haiku here. A bit cheaper for the one from Habu http://www.habutextiles.com/ but they don't have many colours.
