We give you April!
Happy first day of summer!
OMG I´m back home and it´s actually not that bad (liar, liar, pants on fire). Don´t get me wrong, I love Iceland and everything in it but can you seriously stop this constant heavy wind and decide for a moment if it´s going to be raining, snowing, blowing or something else! For example, to day is the first day of summer, which I have never understood why it´s in April, and it has been windy, snowy, sunny and cold, all at the same time.
The good thing about it the first day of summer is that it´s a national holiday and I get to spend it in my knitting chair 🙂 . My April sweater is almost finished, I only have 2/3rd of a sleeve left and as I promised, here are some photos from my trip to Riga.
Greetings from Riga!!! What I was hoping for was this: “I´m totally loving the warm summer breeze here and I think I will be spending my time here mostly out on the patio with my april project (don´t tell my family yet though)”…… But reality is:
“It´s almost the same as in Iceland now, a bit cold and wet and I will be knitting/crocheting inside looking out the window. I think it´s going to knit/crochet up real fast 🙂 which is good because then I will be able to use it back home in the cold spring. I promise a lot of beautiful photos from Riga in my next blog post.
Feeling good about April
Yes Arndís I think all yarn shops in the world should have toys for kids, it must be better for business.
I´m experimenting with paint.net for my sketches. First try is ok but I will try a bit harder…
Ohhhh f…… I will pick up my pen again…. Unless you know about a better program to make sketches, it must be free or cheap and I must have a lot of control over everything 🙂 🙂 🙂 …
But my april will be a Lopi Sweater with mixed methods, knit and crochet because that´s what I love. I love both methods and I can´t choose.
My next blog post will be published from Riga, Latvia where me and my family will be spending Easter vacation. Seeya!
