Rib warmer and a Dale sweater for my son

On Sunday we went to Munkholmen - the prison island! The weather was just perfect for a boat-trip and bathing. The kids was very excited and my son did not really want to leave the boat.

The water was not warm enough for us grown ups, but the kids did not care and had a very nice time . It was a very nice trip, but afterwards I was very tired and slept for 3 hours.
I have done some progress on the rib warmer this weekend. The back is finished, and I am now working on the left panel. It is fun knitting short rows. But I have now experienced the bad thing about knitting lace in dark colors. I really need a lot of light to see what I am doing....

I have a new project that I will start on soon. When the supermarket had a discount on Dale-yarns I could not prevent myself from buying even more yarn. But Nkr 15.90 (US$ 2.54) is a very good deal and this pattern is very nice and my soon will like it a lot. What I did not think trough is that this projects means knitting with a lot of colors and size 3 mm needles....ups!The sweater has a hood, but I will probably not make the hood.

Jeg har også lyst til å strikke gråtassgenseren, liker fargene så godt. Men jeg har ingen å strikke til*sutre*

Munkholmen er flott, og du har tatt noen nydelige bilder.
