For første gang var der Strikkefestival banner allerede i Esbjerg! Det var ret hyggeligt. Vi tog afsted fra København fredag aften og var selvfølgelig tilsvarende senere i Esbjerg, men turen gik rigtig fint.
Since the technique works again, I'd better tell a bit more about the trip......
For the first time, the Knitting Festival banner could be seen already in Esbjerg, before taking the ferry. We left Copenhagen Friday evening, and of course we arrived later in Esbjerg, but everything went well.
Det var en god pakkeleg!
Even though it was late, we had time for the gift game. You should always have time for that! We had a mountain of gifts, and in some fantastic way, all three of as had exactly, what we wanted most.
It was a great game!
De er virkelig flotte, både modeller til voksne og børn!
Om eftermiddagen var jeg til workshop med Ruth Sørensen om at starte i et hjørne og strikke derudaf. Det var rigtig sjovt, faktisk, og nogle fine modeller.
I had 2 workshops on Saturday. First with Lene Holme Samsøe. It was overwhelming seeing a giant stack of her designs and seeing her models "live".
They really look great, not only the models for kids, but also for adults.
In the afternoon, I went to a workshop with Ruth Sørensen and learned to start in a corner and just knit. It was really funny, and the models ended up very well.
Ligemeget hvor meget jeg ville vente og købe garn hos Jane, så var der altså FOR mange utrolige fristelser. I skal nok få lov at se lidt af det en af dagene.
Den strikkede cykel var fin, ikke?
Even though we didn't have a lot of time in-between everything, we managed to go to Sønderho and also to visit the giant tent in Nordby to see all the shops. It was so amazing.
No matter how hard I wanted to wait and buy the yarn at Jane's, there were TOO many incredible temptations. I'll show you some of it one of the coming days.
The knitted bike was nice, don't you think?
Resultatet lignede utroligt meget en dejlig, stor garn-slikkepind!
Going home, I really needed to try out my new winder-stick. The pretty skein of Blue Face Leicester from Fleece Artist became a nice ball. Maybe that will keep me from giving that color of yarn away as a present? I really love the color, you know.
The result looked a lot like a very nice, bit yarn-lollipop!
