Someone who knows the perfect translation for pulla please do so in the comments...
I got this Meme from Lankakomero.
4 jobs you have had:
I wonder if there has been any, seems to me I have always been just a mother and nothing but a mother and the life before becoming one seems like a dream somebody else dreamed
4 movies you could watch over and over:
Aki Kaurismäki's newer films
Out of Africa
Some Perdo Almodóvar films, e.g. Hable con Ella
(After I have posted this I'm sure I'll remember a whole lot of other good ones ...)
4 TV shows you love to watch:
I'm more a listener, so I'll include radio here
Sunday afternoons there is a History Document I try to see
There were two shows I had to see all the episodes, but they are not on any more, the other was The Onedin Line and the other The House of Elliot
4 places you have been on vacation:
The farthest I have been must be South Korea
(We took the children with us to England, and they saw there many, many interesting places like London, the Tower there, Sandringham (where the Queen spends some of her time), the Sherwood Forest, the house of Beatrix Potter just to name a few. The very last night there we spent in loveliest BB in Lake District and they had newborn kittens there. So once home safely we asked the girls what they enjoyed most during those two weeks over there, and you know the answer... yes the kittens. Surely we could have found them closer ...)
4 of your favorite foods:
Salmon cooked by the open fire
(I know a story of a woman who was married to a Lapp and she was vegetarian by heart. Once she moved up north she started to eat reindeer meat, it really was unavoidable to her, so she declared it to be a vegetable since the animal mostly lives on lichen and mushrooms.)
This is where I often cook during summer time. See the black coffee pot there, that kind of coffee is the best and made by my husband, he makes the best coffee.
When I once praised the taste of the coffee I was told that it is not the coffee but the company ...
(The picture was taken few years ago, and then that was my hair color.)
4 websites you visit daily:
Lots of Knitting blogs (more than 4)
4 places you's rather be right now:
I'm in my favourite place right now but if I'd have to leave I'd love to see
Iceland, Ireland, Scotland and Italy
4 bloggers you are tagging:
At this I'm no good, I don't know who would like to play and who has not been playing yet.
I'll add one more thing to the meme
4 places you have lived:
two months in Helsinki
almost a year in Van Wert, OH and the year was 1977-1978 (exchange student)
And now meet Marie N. We share a long history, she was only eight years old when I was living with her and her family. My year was very good, I got to see many interesting places in the States (eg New York, St Louis and New Orleans) and we even crossed the border to the north and I saw Niagara Falls. It was a memorable year.
This is all for now and next time there will be less talk and more wool...
PS. I think anyone who wants to join the Finnish Olympics Knitting Team is welcome. Quilting has been very popular in Finland and still is. People weave a lot - I have a loom also and have handwoven carpets in the kitchen like so many others especially in the countryside. Knitting is becoming more and more popular and crocheting too.
PS. I have not knit a sweater with Satakieli but I think it would make a beautiful sweater. I have used it only for mittens.
PS. Marie, you want to try Alpaca, it is very soft.
