Spagetti-arms!

Hibby and I have washed, scraped, and painted the blue, and the whit is washed, rubbed and waxed. And - I now know why "Wax-on Wax-off" is such a great exercise in Karate-Kid. After this trying to knit is really a fumbling exersize, since my arms are like spagetti, and have no control. But half a sleeve done. And - 1.5 to go. It feels so good to knit again, after (it feels like) a long break. Anyhow, Birches are blooming and eyes are clogging up (allergy)... so it feels great when the rain came tonite. Tomorrow is early - and Im tired (of all medicins). This week - Linköping (tomorrow) and then Dusseldorf (Germany). More work, but some time to knit I hope. You know me by now... I had to throw in some great yarn there. Old, but hey.. We can have a second look at Färgkraft- swedish wool hand-dyed. It is a bit fall colour, but I really want to do something nice with it. Thinking about a Aran - but it might be to busy with the colours and pattern. Or just simple cardi. Just some nice trimmings. Thank you Epstein!

What a lovely sailboat. I wish I knew how to sail--actually, I wish my husband knew how to sail so I could ride and knit in the wind! Your new yar is very, very beautiful!

trist med allergin, men det är intressant att samtidigt se att din blogg är en av de mest färglada i hela bloggvärlden med alla dessa underbara naturbilder!

Tvätta båtar, det jag saknar mest med att inte ha båt är seglandet, och att ligga för ankar varma sommarkvällar, att tvätta båten saknar jag däremot inte ett enda dugg:)
