Hitt og ŝetta

I have been working on the latest sock from Six Sock Knitalong, the Victorian Lace Sock.

I used my purchase from MA Sheep & Wool, it is yarn from Foxfire Fiber. I really liked this yarn, it's slightly different shades of green, just what I was looking for. I love the colourful sock yarns but I keep liking this intricate patterns that look awful with it.

I went to the hardware store today to get ingredients for a recipe for preserving wood, so I can make a garden box like Hilde's. The shopkeeper was helping me find what I needed. "I need paraffin," I said, and he showed it to me. Next to it were canning lids, which I needed to make rhubarb jam since the new lids I had been storing had gotten rusted, so I picked up a box. "Ok, now where is the mineral spirits (paint thinner)?" The hardware store guy stops and looks at me and says, "What kind of recipe are you making???" I had to explain that these were 2 separate recipes. ;)

Ingi's friend posted this link on his blog, it's a Norwegian comedy show making fun of the Danish language, it's really hysterical.

This weekend we bought 30 records (yes, vinyl) for $10. Most of them are kind of gag ones like Mickey Mouse Disco and The Coast Guard Academy Singers. But we got some fun weird finds, like old Elvis albums and Let It Be. And for the price of a movie ticket, it is way more entertaining to listen to all these silly things. We told K we would put all the Coast Guard songs on her iPod, and she didn't seem to protest too much. ;)

Your lace socks look just lovely...I'm still a novice at sock knitting even though I've been knitting almost my whole life. Hopefully someday I'll attempt pretty lace socks like yours!

happy knitting :)

The lace sock looks wonderful! What a nice pattern. I still haven´t finished my second Baudelarie from Knitty.... I suppose I should soon.... but it´s sooo boring ;)
Fun to see another familiar face at the MS3-kal!!
I´ve got my yarn to today.

I want to know how you get the vinyl stuff onto the iPod! I believe it can be done, you just need the right cables and software and such... and presumably a record player connected to a component system with the right places to plug the cables in... ;-)

I have just atarted on mine socks, and hope to finish them as soon as possible, because I have a que of socks lying.

Good luck on building a garden box!
I hope you'll have a wonderful summer :-)
