Strikkeonsdag -- Yarn Along 10/4

     Minimax' anden sok lavede jo et forsvindingsnummer, og det betød at jeg kom lidt ud af vanen med at strikke. Siden fik jeg andre ting at tænke på. Den vidunderlige FODMAP-kur der gjorde mig ca 30 år yngre på lige så mange dage, lockouten der fik gang i hjemmeskolen, haven der endelig kunne gøres noget ved og ca. tusind andre projekter. 
     Lidt strikkeri er det dog blevet til. Jeg er nået over hælen med sok nummer to efter at den dukkede op, og jeg er endelig helt tilfreds med mine hælstrikningsevner, så nu er det bare lige ud af landevejen indtil jeg løber tør for garn
     Og så læser jeg gamle skolebøger som jeg finder antikvarisk. Det er ret interessant hvad de kan fortælle om børneliv før og nu. Og "før" er bare i 1960erne.Det vil der komme mere om senere.

Minimax' sock # 2 made a disappearing act, and this made me drop the knitting habit. They returned, but then other things happened. First I discovered FODMAP - a wonderful diet, that has made me 30 years younger in as many days. The garden finally thawed enough to pull some weeds. Then the schools in Denmark closed because of a lockout and MotherOwl's own school opened, knitting is not one of our subjects, but mending teddy bear and colleagues most certainly is. And then MotherOwl has the usual gazillion of other projects.

Even if my time has been very filled, a little knitting has been going on. After it reappeared, I have turned the heel on sock # 2 to my own full satisfaction. Now all I have left to do is keep on knitting until I run out of yarn

I'm not reading anything but schoolbooks, old second hand schoolbooks. It is interesting what they tell us of how children lived earlier compared to now. "Earlier" being 1960s. More about this in a later post. 


  • Så er hælen færdig og det er tid til noget fjernsynsstrikning - vi har bare ikke noget fjernsyn ;)
  • The heel is turned. Time for some auto-knitting. Sometimes I wish we had a television ;)
  • Nærbillede af Maxis sok. Det er et af de første billeder, jeg tog med det nye kamera, så alle indstillingerne er forkerte (i hvert fald i forhold til, hvordan jeg normalt vil have det). Det ser nu meget interessant ud alligevel. 
  • Close-up of sock # 2. It was one of the first pictures with the new camera, so all the settings are off (at least seen from my point of view).
