for all of you swedish knitters out there: there is a new knitting community called stickning. check it out and join up! get a chance to discuss knitting with other knitters and browse photos or add you own.
i want to thank everyone for your nice comments about my new blog home. however, i cannot take credit for the nice layout, it’s a ready-made template that i’ve chosen. i plan to change the header to one of my own photos eventually.
i recieved some comments about the afternoon tea. elena: i cannot take credit for the tea cosy, it was a gift, but i do agree; it’s wonderful and i love it! lucy: yes, there’s butter on the scones! about the cheese: it’s two types of very common swedish cheese (cheese = ost in swedish), prästost and grevé i think. having scones and tea is fairly common in sweden, i don’t know about the rest of scandinavia though. but we usually make the scones into larger round “cakes” that we cut into quarters and then divide them in the middle. i prefer to make them into small buns, using a glass to “stamp” them out of the dough.
the first sleeve of my hourglass sweater is almost finished, but i didn’t want to bother with a new photo yet, progress photos aren’t always that exciting… but it’s still very enjoyable to knit and the yarn is just wonderful to knit with. i can highly recommend it.
