Selskab / Company
Niecen har fået selfiestang, som man måske fornemmer. Vi fik glühwein og honningkage, og jeg var helt skeløjet kl. 22. Til gengæld vågnede jeg så kl. 04, men 6 timers søvn er vel heller ikke helt skidt sådan en første nat?
Then I arrived! Oh - it was wonderful seeing them again. It's the first time for me celebrating Christmas outside Denmark, but in the company of this family, it's going to be just great!
My niece had a selfies-tick, as you might have guessed. We had glühwein and honey-cake, and I was cross-eyed when the clock turned 10 pm. Then i woke up at 4 am, but 6 hours of sleep isn't that bad for a first night?
Der var virkelig flot udsigt over Detroit.
The flight went well. I knit a total of 2 sleeves while watching movies. It's so nice with these flights - it's time for relaxation! The plane was delayed, but in Washington, everything went as quickly and smoothly as never before, so I made it for the next plane.
The view over Detroit was just beautiful.
Nu har det jo kun taget en uge at strikke den, og jeg ville gerne, at han kan passe den i noget længere tid, så det blev altså en ommer.
Derfor gik morgenen med at trevle op. Godt "hjulpet" af Bailey, der ikke forstod, hvorfor i alverden jeg gad at være optaget af strikketøjet i stedet for verdens sødeste hund?
Nu er jeg tilbage til lige over ribkanten. Bliver den ikke helt færdig i juleferien, må jeg bare sende den.
Det vigtigste er, at den kan bruges et stykke tid!
Once I got here and compared the Star Wars sweater with my nephew and his present sweaters, I could see it was kind of tight.
It only took a week to knit it, and I really wanted the sweater to be usable for somewhat longer than that, so I need to redo it.
So this morning was spent unraveling. I got great "help" from Bailey, who couldn't understand why on earth I wanted to look at the knitting instead of concentrating on the cutest dog in the world?
Now I'm back to just over the rib-edge. If I don't finish it during the vacation, I'll just have to mail it.
The most important thing is that he will be able to use it for a while!
