Gemini in Scarlet
I finally did some SELFISH knitting! I made myself a summer top. I chose the pattern Gemini  by Jane Richmond , and I had some Scarlet from Permin in my stash, but not enough to make it in just the variegated. But luckily I had a skein of a green that was a...

Beer Can Chicken For Dinner
So, last Sunday my boyfriend wanted to make dinner. And he wanted to make something we had talked about trying for a long time. I love it when he makes dinner, so I didn't deny. And we ended up with the most wonderful Beer Can Chicken! With the chicken we h...

Concert Review: Mark Knopfler at Sverresborg
Yesterday my boyfriend and I went to the Mark Knopfler concert. The weather was awful, but Knopfler delivered nonetheless! His hands got cold, and he tried to warm them up between songs, but during "Sultans of Swing" he missed a few chords. "A cold hands ve...

Socks
It seems like I always go back to socks when I need something easy to knit. Why is it always socks? Why do I not choose mittens or hats or shawls? God knows I have more than enough of them in my Ravelry queue. 76 mittens and 22 shawls to be exact. And 76 so...

Handknit gifts
I have this friend in Germany, a lovely woman whom I met through Ravelry. We started out as penpals, but now we chat almost daily via messages. In 2012 she wanted to knit me socks for Christmas. I LOVE handknit socks! So of course I said yes please, and a p...

LibellulasStuff on Etsy
So, I've opened an Etsy shop. LibellulasStuff . I had a few finished items lying around, and decided it was time to sell them. Looked around, and decided that Etsy was probably the way to go. I'm still a bit unsure of what to ask for when it comes to price,...

Cauliflower Soup With Butter-dough Bacon Twists
Tonight it was my turn making dinner. I decided to make an simple cauliflower soup, and "spice" it up a bit with butter-dough bacon twists. The soup is easy. Roughly chop the cauliflower, and finely chop a small onion or two shallots. Saute the onion in a s...

One skein
Sometimes I find that I only have one skein left after completing a bigger project. And I can't be bothered to go to the yarn store to trade it in. So I look for small projects that only require one skein. This time I had a beautiful grey skein of an alpaca...

WIP
For those of you that don't know, WIP means Work In Progress. I have to many WIP's... Over 40! So I'm trying to do them one at a time. But of course there are loopholes for casting on new projects. Like going on a knitting retreat (I'll tell you about it in...

"Me Before You"
So, a while before Christmas I bought this book, "Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes. It took me until now to finish reading it, not because it wasn't interesting or good, but because I've been really distracted with everything that's been going on in my life. An...

Navia "Sockor" med stjärne.
My mom made these slippersocks for me a while back. They were very popular here in Norway for a while, and it seems like new people are discovering them now and then. I slip them on almost every morning, and after I've been in the shower. And I sometimes pu...
