About Vikings, fjords and a bit of crafts

It has been over a week since I post anything but things have been a bit hectic around here, but all for the good! As it is Friday today and we all want to take it easy, I thought of sharing with you a few photos from last week.

Whilst you were busy shopping with us during our Free Shipping offer last week, I was in a boat going around some of the beautiful Norwegian fjords. Apart from the disappointment that the boat was not a real viking boat and nobody was wearing helmets with big horns, the scenery wasspectacular, the sea food as everybody would expect was brilliant and, well, the prices were a bit steep but hey we had a fantastic time!

Although it was a very short trip I managed to squeeze my traditional search for crafty shops. I was not so lucky finding fabric shops, but I was spoiled with yarn choices. Rows and rows of different colours, shades and textures. I brought back with me a fair isle pattern forslippers, lets hope I can knit them both the same size!!

I leave you with some pictures, I am not sure about you but I am ready for another holiday!

    Looks like an amazing place.
    The colour of the yarns is beautiful makes me want to learn to knit!

    Hi Jenny! The yarns was really beautiful. I found one fabric shop where they sell all the kits to make the traditional Norwegian dresses. The ribbons were amazing, I wanted to buy them all!

    Ooh, those yarns look just amazing. Just beautiful colours, there and on the houses. What a wonderful place to visit!

    Hi Laura! The yarns were beautiful and the place is just out of this world. I love the sea and the woods, in Bergen I just needed to turn to one side or the other to admire either :)

    Wonderful ribbon! Can see one of those edging a boiled wool garment. How are you getting on with those slippers?

    Hi Eirlys,
    The slippers are going ok.. but I have only finished 1, I am not a big fan of dpns and I bought a circular needle that was a too short to knit with that, so I think I will be hopping if I don’t get the right needle soon!
