Yep... we did not have an option but to choose. The lamps over the dinner table went out one by one; we tried to replace the lights individually but they popped out harder than we could buy new ones. It got expensive. And I don't have a money tree in my back yard. One lamp out of four was left and it started to look like it was giving up as well.
We went to Ikea in Delft yesterday to buy us a new lamp. Actually two. We also replaced a poor working light in the boys' bedroom. So now we're ready for dark winter evenings with a sea of light...saving engergy in the same time.
I can easily knit darker pieces now in the evenings... couldn't see it before. So another plus :-)
I have a small dillemma...
Yesterday I jotted down a two colour fair isle pattern in my note book. Can't show you the design yet, but my initial idea is to work it into:
mittens or a hat
or into a sweater series for the boys.
The problem is that the pattern can be read horizontal or vertical.
How would you "read"?
What would you like to knit?
And if you would choose for the boys sweaters, what colours would you choose?
(I have 3 boys to knit for... 1 almost 14, 1 is 11 and our youngest is almost 8 months)
