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. ;)
