Knitting Weekend...

This weekend I visited one of my best friends and her boyfriend. They live on the outskirts of Oslo. It's quite some time since I visited them last, so after being i Oslo on friday on business from
work I just had to see them.

My oh so good friend Camillas boyfriend Elling picked me up on friday in a BMW Z3, so I arrived at their home in style :) The weekend just flew by...

Lots of knitting, finished the scarf in the picture over (ghost knitting), one sock done and the other a little over half done, I did some crocheting :) Great food, great company, shopping in Oslo (trying, all I got was some yarn and boardgames.) On sunday we also made room for a visit at the new operahouse in Oslo, Operane. It was the perfect building to bring a camera to. On the left is me and myself at the opera.

As you might see from the picture below, the weather was wonderful. Autum is her, and it is beautiful. Atleast till I got back to Bergen where it was raining cats, dogs and ponies...

Christmas - right around the corner

If you want it or not, Christmas is right around the corner. I have started making things to give away for christmas, but feel like I should be making more. But this again will make the blog contain less knitting, but a solution to having nothing here I thought I might put Norwegian christmas tradition here. Just to show what we do for christmas :) Everything from christmas dinner to cookies :) And sometime between christmas and New Years Eve I will put my production in my blog for all to see :)
