A nice weekend away

Me and a part of my stitching group (Rósa, Erla, Guðbjörg, Aiste and her daughter Amelía) went away to a cabin in the country for the weekend. We left on Friday after work, and after a short stop at a grocery store to get supplies we drove out of town. Like always, as soon as we got there we started stitching/knitting.

Guðbjörg, Rósa, Erla Björk and Amelía

On Saturday Rósa made us a wonderful meal of chicken and vegetables, baked in the oven topped with cheese and rice, salad and bread, washed down with some white wine. Thank you Rósa for a wonderful meal!

Delicious food made by Rósa

The youngest of the group, Amelía (8 months old) was a complete angel the entire weekend and we played a little.

Amelía and me

Aiste (her mother) finished a wool west, her second ever knitting project. Rósa finished socks and learned how to knit two things at the same time using a long circular needle and the magic loop method. Guðbjörg finished a hat. Erla got her advent calendar done and did some of the ornaments to hang on it (you can see pictures of it on her blog). I did half of my bolero and started Necessities Sampler by Little House Needleworks. I am changing the colour scheme from blues to reds. I also knitted a little on the baby kimono (Ravelry Link) I am doing for a charity project.

My stuff

Thank you my wonderful friends for a great, great weekend! You have no idea how much they, and YOU, mean to me! More Pictures from the trip can be found on my flickr account.
