In so many words

Finally, I´ve got some pictures up! This sunday we went to Mariefred on a visit to my sister in law and her family.
I thought I just give you something to look at.

Last monday I and Valdar made lingonberry-jam, lingonberry-jam-cupcakes and ..

this and that

There is alot of things going on at the moment. Alot of good things and alot of things I can´t tell you about. Yet. Hopefully everything will turn out fine. And when they do, I will tell you.

We have bought a new cardreader, that did not work. But we have now located our old one and one of these days there will be pics.

Anyways: knittingrelated - have you visited the Lindex website lately? They´re writing about knitting -history and the promo says something about a "knitting revolution" - here is a link to the video.

Yesterday I passed by the display window of department store PUB, and this is what I saw:

Yarn, knitting and a wheel. Not bad, not bad at all.
Now, I will go back to drinking tea and knitting. More on Väv 08 later. While I was gone, two beautiful boys were born: Little T and a darling Frog :-). I am so happy for you! <3 Lycka Form: Wonderful blankets!
"Stickat och virkat- vintage på svenska" A new book!
Two new books by author, knitdesigner and LYSowner Nina Sagulin - have a look at

I got this wonderful nomination from Maria over at Skapande, I am very proud and grateful! I want to pass it on to a couple of bloggers that never stop to inspire me: Stickigt, En till stickblogg, Mecozy, Camilla Engman, Emmas designblogg, angry chicken, Happy Silly, Fine little day, Brooklyntweed, Kurbits and - woops, that is more than seven - but I could easily nominate five och six more.

The rules of passing this nomination - if there are any - are as follows:

Vinnare/nominerade kan lägga in loggan på sin blogg!
2. Länka till personen som nominerat dig. /Put up a link to the person from whom you got the nomination
3. Nominera 7 andra bloggar/ Nominate 7 blogs of your choice
4. Länka till de bloggar som du nominerar/ Put up links to your nominees
5. Lämna ett meddelande hos de bloggar som du nominerat/ leave a message to those you have nominated (I might not this last one)

Oh. I forgot. I picked up the latest issue of IK earlier. And, I happened to pass by Knitty the other day - and the fall issue is up.

We still like it in Årsta. Wish we could stay.

Take care!

Take care.

Still no photos. But, meanwhile I thought I´d put some links up. For several reasons we are looking at furniture, wallpapers and so on. Lets say we have been looking around, and I found a couple of things I like.

Wallpaper "Storskogen" by Karin Moberg. Found it over at Designista, where I also found these pictures.

Meet Sixten! We have been looking for a kitchentable and a coffee-table for ages, I think we just might have found them. There are, actually, some Sixten chairs aswell.

This kitchen by Kvänum is one of my favourites.

And finally, Svenskt Tenn. Elefant Blå by Estrid Ericson.

Time to go, take care. Maybe I´ll see you in Leksand at Väv08?

Another short message. We are alive, and quite well although my health seems to resemble a roller coaster more than anything else. Today I finally got to buy a cardreader - but there seems to be some problem so we will just have to wait. Just wanted to tell you that I still knit, we are fine, we stay in Årsta at the moment due to the refurbishment in Högdalen and enjoy Årsta greatly.
