hee hee....the pattern came with it. And....I knit Lars and gave him to my friend from Austin TX who I think will be hauling him to Iceland with her so they can meet. And needless to say....Solveig will be going home with her!!! (More room in my suitcase going home!!!)

Oh, yes....please. Any yarn store not to miss in Reykjavik? We'll have a couple extra days at the end of the workshop. Tried and true referrals are ALWAYS welcomed!!! Thank you! s

Oh, my friend.....I'm VERY nervous about meeting Lars. But, he's written to me and he seems like a very very kind and gentle person. I'm just a wee bit concerned that my foray to the homeland smushed into a backpack might mess up my golden locks!!! C'est la vie!!! Solveig

oh, my dear dear dear Lars!!! You are so silly!!!! We must still count days before we count hours!!!! I, too, hope to hitch a ride to Iceland in a backpack, although I'm not sure it will also hold a camera. I've ensconced myself in the ever-growing pile of subzero clothes. These crazy Southern Americans. We must teach them how to enjoy our crisp, invigorating climate, hey? I hope you don't think I'm too forward... Alla Mina ast, Solveig

Hello. My name is Solveig. I just got my innards and hair last night. I dreamed of being a redhead, but short of having to have a real honest to goodness dye job, that wasn't going to happen. I'm actually sort of glad I didn't have to settle for lavender... Continue reading

The needles haven't been flying, but they've been steadily clicking away.... Koto....front and back are finished, worked from the bottom up, in the round, with a multitude of short-rowing that is nothing less than miraculous, because I think it turned out the way the pattern intended. I'm not always good... Continue reading

The past two months I've been lucky to post twice a month. What's with that? (This is the blogger who at one time...posted daily!) I blamed it for awhile on my AWOL mojo, but we all knew that was just an excuse, right? Lazy? Uninspired? Distracted? Who knows? Even Freddy... Continue reading

Thanks, Eileen! After a week, though, of playing with my camera at ‘photography camp’ that old mojo might disappear again!

Another Selbu Modern hat. That makes three. (#3 is MIA at the moment, but because it was my most favorite winter hat, I'm sure I put it in a good safe place last spring.) Obviously, I now have two in reserve. I NEVER knit the same thing twice...and never ever... Continue reading

Hi, my friends. Freddy here. I'M!!!HOME!!!!!! This time I was at camp so long that when mom came to get me....I gave her a sniff and turned back to my camp counselor. (hee hee.....showed her, didn't I? She was stunned!) I actually had a really good time at camp this... Continue reading

oh, Edna….I totally get it. You do have to try to make it appear as if a tumble was part of the overall plan when it happens (and it WILL happen!!!)

Hi, My Friends. Freddy here. I'd like to talk to you today about one of my favorite things in the whole world. Naps. I think of myself as quite the expert on the subject, and if time and practice have anything to do with perfecting a skill, I think you... Continue reading

oh, miss ellen…..you are describing one of my nap specialties, the nap-that-really-isn’t-a-nap nap. Those are some of the best!!!! (I wouldn’t know anything about that baby-thing….being a boy and all.)
I think that was self preservation…..not really labor! As long as you squeezed in a nap on Nap Day…..I think you have it covered.

Hi, my friends. Freddy here. I hope someone can help me out. Where I live, today is Labor Day. But, I'm not sure I get it. Most people don't go to work today. So, are you SUPPOSED to labor on Labor Day? Or are you not supposed to labor on... Continue reading

Hi, My Friends. Freddy here. I have some good news to report. My mom is knitting more again. Wanna see? Pressed leaves hat by Alana Dakos. Verdure Mitts by Alana Dakos.

hi, Millie Mae. I’m exhausted just reading about all your outdoor responsibilities. No wonder you need a nap! I’m not much of a blankie guy, but

Hi, my friends. Freddy here. Yeah, I know. I'm looking particularly adorable today, don't you think? This is my latest nap-fort. I have them all over the house. To make a good one, you must seriously fluff pillows. Sometimes, if there are too many pillows, I have to toss a... Continue reading

I've come to the conclusion that my mojo has simply moved north. Neither of us wants to knit with cotton. Or linen. Or make sleeveless anything. I've tried to be practical and knit appropriate things for my climate...and I'm not a happy camper knitter. Of course, being practical and logical... Continue reading
