Eva and I are planning trips out in the mountains this summer, and then you need to have good lunch-boxes. So when we found these at Obs! Lade we just had to have them! There is one round and one square for each of us, mine are blue and Eva's are the green ones.

Eva loves to try out new things, and she is very good at smarten one self up an decorate things. In the picture she has decoratet her nails with nailpolish in different colours and dipped them in sugar. Yes, totally ordinary sugar, and that is the klumps that you see in the surface of the nails. I actually didn't think that this would be looking nice, but I let her try anyway, and the finished resoult turned out pretty good, don't you think? I especially liked the effect that the different colours of nailpolish with sugar got, so maybe I will have to try this myself sometime. Who knows, maybe my nails will be awesome with sugar on..?

This book contains patterns on over 70 various things from big sweaters to small things like hats and mittens. And I am knitting a pair of mittens from this book. I actually bought the book in may this year, but forgot all about it until I decided to start blogging about the knitting-books in the bookshelves. Because of that I started looking through the books and as you know, one thing leads to another and I now are knitting mittens after a pattern in this book..
Boka er et utmerket oppslagsverk for hvordan gjøre hva når man strikker, og jeg liker måten Gerd Fjellanger skriver og forklarer ting på. Hun har tidligere skrevet bøkene "Strikk og tov" og "Myk design", men denne boka er den eneste jeg har foreløpig..
This book is an exellent dictionary for how-to-do-things when knitting, and I like the way Gerd Fjellanger writes and explaines things in. She has also written the books "Strikk og tov" and "Myk design", but this book is the only one of hers that I have by now..

Since Eva has her birthday in July we use to celebrate a little bit in June to, so she gets a little party with her friends and girls from school. It is not always easy to be born during the summer holiday, but to have a birthday celebrated twice a year is nice to, lol!
Årets feiring med venner ble en liten tur til et badehotell i Åre, Sverige. Hotellet ligger vel 2-3 timers kjøring fra Trondheim hvor vi bor. Vi var der fra lørdag til søndag, og dro dit med 4 jenter i tillegg til Eva. Og det var en virkelig trivelig tur med koselige jenter som koste seg i badelandet!
This years friend-celebration was a trip to a hotel in Åre, Sweden, with a huge swinning area. The hotel is about 2 - 3 hours drive from Trondheim were we live. We were there from Saturday to Sunday, and 4 girls was able to join Eva, in addition to us the parents. And it was a really noce trip togheter with a nice group of girls that enjoyed swimming in the pool-area of the hotel.
Åre har også en flott strikkebutikk for strikkere som meg, så jeg besøkte Kaki en snartur før jeg tok en svømmetur i hotellbassenget. Og de tre nøstene på bildet var det jeg kjøpte der.
Åre also has a store for knitting people like me, so I went to Kaki before I went back to the hotel and visited the swimmingpool. And the 3 balls of yarn in the picture was what I bought there.
Idag har Mamma også bursdag så gratulerer kjempemasse med dagen idag, kjære Mammaen min! <3
Today is my Mothers birthday so a very happy birthday to you today, my dear Mother! <3

Now my new and lovely shawl is washed and blocked, and I am very pleased with the resoult! This became a really beautiful shawl, and the green edging on it made it have a perfect finishing!
Det første bildet viser sjalet vasket og blokket og det neste bildet viser sjalet før vasking og blokking.
The first picture shows the shawl all washed and blocked and the second picture shows it before it was washed and blocked.

My brother and his family has been a week in Turkey, and I asked nicely if they could buy some turkish apple tea to me when they were there. And here is the tea they bought to me!
Den er ikke rød, men blank og smaker som grønne epler og ikke røde epler som er avbildet på boksen. Og teen er like god varm som kald, jeg elsker tyrkisk eple-te!
The tea is not red, but bright and tastes like green apples and not red apples that are pictured on the box. And the tea tastes just as good warm as it does cold, I love turkish apple-tea!
