We had a relaxing week. For me that was good, as I am sleeping not so very well at the moment. I have to talk about it in half an hour, when I have the baby check-up. The result is, that I felt tired - and that was made stronger by the rain we had in the past week. Ah well. It is still too hot for the time of year here - 15 to 18 degrees Celsius is not something to expect in November. I still remember when our Steven was born (1993), it was freezing on Nov. 18 (-7) and on the 20th snow was falling down from heaven. Now the sun is shining.
Still I managed to do some knitting. I finished the sweater for the baby set - I only have to buy a set of six buttons for it. (photo will follow) It will be sent out to my friend in Canada - her daughter is expecting a baby girl any day now.
Our washing machine broke this week as well. It could be repaired, but its absolutely not cheap anymore to let something be repaired. Ugh!
I have a hard time choosing as well. L. who has become a dear friend of mine - and I am doing regular test knits for her - sent me a gift certificate to choose some yarns to play with. But I saw so many that it is hard to choose.
Like this one, for example... it is a handpainted yarn from Opal, which colour combination refers to the falling leaves in Autumn. Personally I like this colour combination a lot, but - as I am a winter child - I might wait a little and see if there is a winter combination coming. (snow-ice-blue might be cool) Ah well... I am dreaming and have to get ready, otherwise I'll be too late!
