Thank you for all the kind compliments about my husband, mr B!
Tove, I suspect that bigamy isn´t allowed in Sweden. Though I´m sure mr B would be delighted by your proposal – especially when he realizes that you are younger, slimmer and prettier than his first wife.
But how about if mr B took your boyfriend along as a trainee next time he goes away on a business trip?
And Beth, I´ve been meaning to take a photo of the Latvian mittens he brought back for me – but I keep forgetting.
I did however take a photo of the white yarn that I used for the owl socks. It´s a vintage yarn from Norway, called Triplex.
I got two skeins of this elusive yarn from my blog friend Grete in Norway. Takk Grete!
It´s a sport weight, worsted wool (kamgarn) and has a very special braided texture. I think that Annemor Sundbø explained that it has been plied twice. It´s quite soft and wonderful to knit with. What a shame it has been discontinued!
I still have enough left for a pair of socks for myself and perhaps even a hat. But first I have something else that I need to knit.
Last year when I asked my son if he wanted a new dragon sweater when he outgrew his old one he said yes. But added that this time he wanted a flying dragon – because it was time I did something hard...
So since then I´ve been trying to draw a flying dragon and it sure hasn´t been easy. But I finally came up with something that young master L graciously approved.
