Sorry my blog is such a mess. I need to figure out what I am going to do with this blog. So far I am just trying. I am writing what is in my mind.

To day I will pass a tip on to you!
Some times when I am knitting flat - with a lot of stitches on a circular needle (see below) - i feel that the work is dragging down and making the work harder and heavier than neccasary. I constantly have to pull it up closer to the working end of the needle tip. But then one day I figured that I could use the cord stopper I always have in my tool-box.

And do you know why I have it in my tool box (I actually have 2)? I got it from an American knitter who use them as the bump at one end of double pointed needles so that they become domino-needles. Smart isn't it?

I was am quite caught entrelac - but I did it my way - the domino-way so to speak!
I loved it so much that I have already started a new greyish tunic (below). I also love to wear it and the climate here right now is exactly for knitted garments.
My son gave me this mannequin - I call her my new assistent - and she is easy to photograph as she looks good - she does not move and she does not complain. But in December it is really dark even though it is almost 10 o'clock in the morning you cannot see much.
I succeeded in this photo of my coming tunic in greyish colors with Goldenrod. Here you can actually see the stars from the old nightshirts. I have lots of ideas for the Vivian type of entrelac. It is fun and - as you may know - I love squares.
