Anyhow, I have been really nostalgic lately... I have cleaned up some old papers and new papers - it is tax- declaration time here... and I also found a box of ribbons that I won on my horse many years ago. That was really fond memories, that seem so far away. Boy it is intersting threw out some stuff, other stuff goes to the bin for re-cycling.... Well, still sneezing like a robot, nose is dripping and eyes itching... m ost of it is the pollen, but Im suspecting a small cold is using the time to explode.... and Im just soo tired all the time. I think I need 3 month off - with hubby. No, back to papers, watering the plants... paying bills and you know...just a bit Ravlery first. And my knittings are growing. Slowly, slowly... Im knitting of 4 different garments right now. And it is time to get back to the sock KAL, and do some more socks. I actually use mine all the time. So it is a good knit. Good knit = often used!

I found this old great knit I invented in the 70ties... Cat n Rat, fish and anchor, harts and waves... just inventing patterns and knitting... I noted here that this was way to small for me (even then) must be around 60-70cm in the round... so I have already ripped out the ladies and gents. Then I realized I did not have the heart to rip it, and it has been waiting for me since then. In Pure Farmar wool from Domus (!) I still think it is just fab. And now I have figured out what to do with it. Since steeking is no problem (ha, Im just psyching me up for it.... the wedding cardigan is so waiting) so I might just cut it up, add a back, and have a great vest (I do not think the yarn is enough for sleeves) So, when rummaging the wardrobe, I found this other golden oldie, that I knitted 81? or was it 82? It is just wonderfully soft, linen-cotton and something. Sweater and skirt - a little ensemble, that I have used so much, Im surprised it still holds shape. Not my usual color combo "but the yarn was on sale" (heard that one before?)... I wish I remember what yarn it was...... do you remember? Please help me out!
