Blank - Really blank!

More stressed than ever -dearest husband and I decided to have our premier sailing tour for the year. Furlex on, and off we went to Ladviken. We had no boat in our near sight and it was quiet - and a bit cold. But waking up to the sunshine morning with the sea completly flat was amazing. All stress form work just had disappeared. My hands went immediately to my recently bought Noro Kureyon 203 sweater - which is alike a Rosedale- imitation. (Since I did it form memory - and invented the pattern). Now this is the last week of being home for a long while.
I will just "drop" in to swap suitcase once a week. Anyhow, what will I do with the cashmere? Well I have browsed all my magazines I bought from Phildar and Anne Blatt and found one in the later spring "houte corture" version, and a pullover with a lace pattern. I just glanced at the angora last nite and thought It would really spiff-up the camel yarn with just some few lines. Anyhow, the Anne Blatt mag had a great knitted jacket that looked like weaving - that I fell for, so that might be something. That jacket used a variety of yarn qualities to make texture. I must say that the french sure know their textiles and fashion. Great inspiration. Isnt hubby cute when he does the boat-dishes? We got sunburn on the way back yesterday meeting all boats on the way out. Today we knew we planned right - since the rain is pouring down. It is so nice to wake up at home. And - both sleeves knitted - and almost 15 cm on the cardi from the bottom. Thinking raglan. We will see. Yarn tells.
And now, when Im home I can browse Rosedale at Knitty.

all that exotic yarn name dropping is making me dizzy...
would love to see the Noro progress. have you knit the sleeves in the round? that gives a different Noro look the flat.

How nice to be out on the water and knitting. So jealous!!

You have to post pictures of your latest design with the Noro.

What a wonderful life! Sailing, eating and knitting. What more could you ask for??? Where are you sailing? We will be in Scandinavia next summer for an extended visit. We have friends in the Skane area of Sweden and friends in Olso. Our daughter (age 16) is going on a choir tour of Scandinavia and we are taking this opportunity to visit the countries for a while.

Trevlig midsommar! Hoppas att du har lite ledigt och får bra väder och kan vara ute på havet.
