The dark grey being the main color.
I had a trip planned for January. Something came up and couldn't go then so Friday night I got a call and had an opportunity to take that trip February 20th onward for a week... So I couldn't say, sorry, I'm taking part in the Knitting Olympics and hence am unable to come... My Olympics Knitting time would then be only 10 days and it is too short a time to make anything that demanding than this gentleman in the picture. Mr Mole would have been perfect supporter for the Finnish Olympics Team because his hands would have been big enough for clapping...
I have been thinking of making something small during the first ten days but I don't have any plans so far and then might end up canceling my participation and moving to the spectator side.
But I hope that Mr Mole will be around one day. Needles to say my girls were all very disappointed.
This has been such a draw back (although I'm very happy about the trip, I have been waiting for it for some time now...) that I haven't got much done.
Finished the Birch Leaf Socks. These will be the final pictures. I do love this yarn and the color and how it looks in the close up pictures.
At the moment it is like all the knitting goals have vanished and like there is no point to knit at all... But for certain this mood is about to change any minute.
Spinning is the best way to get focused again, so I have been spinning "as thin as I dare Merino", and have plans to make it into 2 ply. But it is so thin it is going to take forever.
The pulla recipe will be up in the near future. I think "nisu" is the old word for "vehnä" which is wheat and pulla is made of wheat.
Thank you for the supportive comments again. And I want to thank my Finnish readers here too. We had an election for the best blog and for the most surprising blog etc. I didn't win in any of the categories but I had few nice comments. Thank You!
PS. Grandma Kitty is back in town. She is fine.
