Frilørdag / Saturday off
Når jeg nu havde sådan en dag, tog jeg først ind og byttede en fødselsdagsgave til en strikkebog, og så kørte jeg forbi Knitworks for at kigge. Følte bestemt ikke jeg manglede strikkefestival i mit liv (eller nyt garn!), men når den nu var næsten lige om hjørnet.
Første stand jeg så, var Sisses fra Nørkleriet. Her kunne man få taget et billede med sit yndlingssjal!
Yesterday, I wasn't working. Or had visitors planned. Or had plans of visiting someone. It ended up as one of those days with me doing exactly what I wanted, and I promised myself NOT to feel guilty about the stuff I didn't get around to doing. A very important detail.
With a day like this, I first went to the bookstore, exchanging a birthday gift for a knitting book, and then I went to Knitworks to have a look. Didn't really miss knitting festivals in my life right now (or new yarn!), but with this just around the corner, I went anyway.
The first booth I came across was by Sisse from "Nørkleriet". Here, you could have a photo taken with your favorite shawl!
Katrines opskriftbøger, og fandt også hendes modeller, men selv om jeg spurgte her og der og var alle 3 sale rundt adskillige gange, lykkedes det mig altså ikke. Desværre. Men flotte er de ihvertfald!
Til gengæld fik jeg hilst på både Charlotte Kaae, Pernille Skau, Signe Strømgaard og Louise Klindt. Det var virkelig hyggeligt!
I really wanted to buy Katrine's pattern books, and did find her models, but even though I asked here and there and went around all 3 rooms several times, I didn't succeed. Unfortunately. They are some very nice models!
While walking around, I met Charlotte Kaae, Pernille Skau, Signe Strømgaard and Louise Klindt. That was really nice and fun!
Men så købte jeg en strikketatovering hos Signe. Det hjalp da lidt!
Nå. Der var fint og spændende, men jeg smuttede hjem igen efter lidt frokost i byen. (Hotdog. Genialt!)
I didn't wear a single knitted thing, and I hadn't even brought my knitting, so I really kind of stood out on a knitting festival like this.
But then I bought a knitting tattoo from Signe. Helped a bit!
Well. It was nice and exciting, but home I went after grabbing lunch in the center. (Hotdog. Genius!)
Sådan en dag er virkelig skøn nu og da......
At home, I used the last can of Christmas beer from last year to make "bird on a can". Had planned to do this for a while, and it tasted good!
A day like that is really great now and then.....
