Just very quickly

Hi there!
I am back from my visit to Sweden and while I am recovering, I just wanted quickly to say hello and let you know two important things:

1. The lake, it is free! It is free. Today was windy day and I had the windows facing the lake open and could listen to the waves breaking. I just so love that sound.

2. There is a fantastic videocast called Fruity Knitting in YouTube. It is quite new, there are at the moment just four episodes, but each one of them is special. Make yourself a cup of coffee or tea, put your feet up and take your knitting, and you are in good company for almost an hour and a half.

(This link takes you to the fourth episode.)

In the fourth episode I appear just quickly, but if you would like to hear what I sound and look, there it is. It was filmed two weeks ago, and already the world is looking so much better, that is the snow is gone, well, almost gone.

Much love and wool with you,
Lene

  1. Hooray, the ice has lost it's grip. Let the fair summer winds sweep in.

    What a terrific youtube video. I love the intro music. Looking forward to watching it with a cup of coffee in the morning.

    Thank you for sharing that, it was so fun to see you and hear you. I think you are right about not needing more inspiration to knit than being cold. I live where it is only cold for a couple of months and even then it rarely goes below freezing. I have a hard time knowing what to knit for this relatively warm weather. I love to see your surroundings they are so beautiful and even your dog looked cute! Thank you again for the video and I hope to see you do more in the future!

  5. Hooray for an ice-free lake! Thanks for the link to the youtube video...at work now, so can't really watch (shouldn't be reading blogs either...), but I think I will fix a cup of tea tonight, grab my knitting and watch the episode. Looking forward to it. Enjoy your weekend.

  14. Thank you for sharing the information regarding the podcasts on you tube. They are very informative. I enjoyed seeing you and a glimpse into your world. My grandfather was from Lapland and I am always excited to learn more about the area.
