I have a new blog in Norwegian dedicated to spinning yarn and related subjects.
As for now I will be writing it in Norwegian, but I might do a mix later.

The new blog is at

Work, work, work!

That is way I´m not blogging.
It was supposed to be a small part-time job, but it has been a very uneven distributed work hours. Because almost everything is happening during a 2-week period it has been more than a full-time job. But from now on I will not be working crazy hours. Maybe I can even have some time knitting and spinning....

My shop is still up and running, but the technical part is a challenge. The new blog and the pages I made at with mac software is really hard to update, so I am not able to do anything with the pages before my DH find a way of solving it, that is - have the time to figure it out. Maybe I will have to hire someone to do it...or I might just have to give up the iWeb software and do it "the hard way". That is do my own programming in Dreamweaver or something. It is just that I have not been doing much of it the last 5 years, so it will take a lot of time to learn and figure out. That is what I like about mac-software. It is so easy to make smashing looking pages with no hassle. The problem seems to be when you want to publish or integrate with something that is not part of the mac-family. At least that is the case for iWeb. When it comes to iWork it is doing pretty nice exporting and importing from Office.

OK, this is supposed to be a blog about knitting and not software! Anyway I have not been knitting much, but I have done some crochet. I am trying to make one of the new Stitch Diva designs "Hourglass jacket". This is a fun design, and I had to buy 15 mm knitting needles to be able to do the broomstick stitch. For some reason I started making the smallest size thinking it was size Small, but as I connected the fronts to the back I realized it was very tight around my arms (this is a top down construction). Then I looked at the pattern and found out I was following the instructions for a size XS. So I had to start all over again. And now I am down to the waist. The picture is me working on the jacket outside in the beautiful days we had during our Ester vacation. It was a bit cold so I tried crochet with gloves on, but that really complicated it all :-)
