my very good friend living next door stept by this afternoon and gave me a brandnew toilet bowl and tank that was surplus, since she decided to use something else. And the best, I got it for free, because she said, she would trash it anyway. Well, although my bathroom is beige - that was up to date in the early 80th - and this is white, I don't care. It will do, good enough for me and my purse. Thank you U.

Arrangement: almond-balls in the middle, right side blond cookies with dark crumble and on the left side blond cookies with honey and trail-mix, just an idea, but it's yummi.

I loved all seasons there, but I prefered winter time. It is cold and dry, due to less humidity, and when the sun is shining, it's wonderful. I lived in the Oslo area, and there you can do a lot of sports like alpine skiing, cross country, telemark, skating etc.

I didn't realize, how hard it is to stick to the complete programm. The household is almost done, here and there some leftovers that I don't know where to store. My house is definitely too small, I have to decide what I must get rid of.... Next week I will start with the gardening...horror for me, but I have to get through, otherwise the house will be ending up behind a green curtain...
And now, what's about my creative progress? I'm not able to finish one project at a time. That's, what I mean by dicipline. There is so much material in my stash that I can start new objects over and over again. Well, I admit, I finsh my stuff as well, but then I have already started at least two new projects.. Is there anybody who can give me an advice, how I can dicipline myself...???
Ha, and finally I tell you that I've got my first mosquito bite for this year. Not to forget, it is still February......

Material: Gedifra Fashion Trend Surprise, needles no 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0 mm.
I ran out of yarn, so the snail at the hat turned out to be a little too small. I decorated it with the black elefant, a gift, my old friend Julie in London gave me in the late 70ties. Memories are made of this.....
The scarf is my own design, just a zick-zack, performed by decreasing and increasing stitches.
Pattern for the fingerless gloves is here.
Material: Rest of Hundertwasser yarn, created after motives from the artist, combined with matching marine blue. I knitted the leg in a vertical way and added the foot and the cuff traditional with dpn 2.5 and 2.0 mm. Friedensreich Hundertwasser was an austrian artist who performed a very specific way of art. Read more here.
Material: Rellana Flotte Socke, selv patterned yarn with bamboo, dpn 2.0 mm. First Christmas gift 2008 for my sister.
Material: Gedifra Cotton, dpn 2.0 mm. Pattern can be found here.
So, if you are wondering that I'm already doing x-mas gifts, my experience says that I can't start early enough, and my schedule allows it right now. I don't know what this year is going to be like and I can only afford to show up on Christmas Eve without any packages once. Well, this event happened last year....I'm sure there are no further queries....

So, what have I done so far?
First of all, I quit smoking....I did't plan it, it just came over me...now I have to take care of my weight....but one after the other...
I began to clean up the house that hadn't seen more than absolutely necessary work in the past ten years...and I have to hurry since the garden already needs attention and it doesn't look better than the rest of the property.
I need more time as usual to take care of all my matters since I've got to finish all ways on foot or by bike.
And last but not least I began to clear up my stash and have a look through all the unfinished objects around the place.
What I will make out of these ufo's, all other material for hundreds of projects knitted and sewed, and some other passions I couldn't live for ages, I will share with you. I invite you, to comment my posts if you want, because it's always exiting to see what other members have to say about an entry.
Now I'll get back to my needles and I hope to be able to show you something finished tomorrow.
Best wishes Sophie
