Bits & Pieces

Cold, but beautiful day in #reykjavik #iceland
The past 10 days or so have absolutely flown by. 10 days ago it was horribly cold, but bright and the sun was out. You can feel the spring coming slowly, the days are getting longer and it is slowly getting warmer.

#þingvellir #iceland
We took a drive to visit friends in the countryside and drove through Þingvellir. It is always so beautiful there.

Good morning #reykjavik #iceland
Early morning in Reykjavík.

I need this floor lamp!
I went out for a great lunch with my man and saw this lamp in the restaurant. I want it!

Bits & Pieces

Hello! The weekend completely flew by me, so I did not update on Sunday like I try to do. My little sister turned 26 on Sunday so we had brunch at my parents house that was absolutely amazing.

Here are some photos for ya!

It's late, but #winter finally arrived to #reykjavik #iceland

Office view. Or no view.
Winter decided to visit us here in Reykjavík for 2 days last week. It left as soon as it came. This has been the strangest winter I have ever experienced.

Friday = pizza!
Every other Friday night, when the girls are home, we make pizza. Karítas loves to help out and puts the toppings on the pizza for her and her sister.

#crochet #blanket #afghan i love how it looks on her bed. And the fact that it is big enough for her to enjoy for a very long time
Karítas’s bed made with her wave blanket. I love it.

#rainbow #crochet #socks
I started a crocheted sock! One down, one to go. Pictures to follow when I finish the second one.

My confirmation photo. This was 20 years ago, thank you very much!

January 2011 SAL
And surprise! I have a stitching finish. I decided to start UFO Tuesdays back again at my Icelandic stitching group since most of us are doing much more knitting and/or crochet these days than stitching. So some of us are dedicating Tuesdays to working on our very neglected UFO’s. I finished this cute freebie from TraLaLa into a pincushion last night. Cute, isn’t it?

Bits & Pieces

First of all, here is an article that was first published on my blog but got re-published on Purl Peterborough. Read and share!

Another #crochet #blanket #finished
Pattern: Vintage Crocheted Throw & Afghan by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas
Yarn: Trysil Garn Dalia in 5 colors
Hook: 4mm
I did 12 color sequences from the pattern, so I added 4 more sequences to get the size that I wanted for the blanket. My sister came over last night to pick it up and she loves it! So do I, it was hard to give it away, but I am so happy that I could make this for my sister who can’t handle wool because of her sensitive skin.

On Friday I visited my very good friend Dóra with our friend Lilja. Dóra just came home from a 6 week long vacation in Asia so we had good food, good wine and looked at pictures and listened to her stories of her travels. Then we went out on the town.

I met my very good friend Valdi, who I haven’t seen in a long time, so off course he got a big kiss!

Sumarrós made this awesome and cute little alien bear. I love it!
