June was internship, sunshine, exhaustion, exam, Tenerife, new Summer job, tons of ice cream and strawberry picking. My summer holiday started last week and it makes me want to jump for joy like that crazy guy in the top picture.
I've been cleaning out my current project pile these last couple of months. Finishing up some knits, casting on for a couple of new ones and procrastinating on the rest. I'm probably going to rip a couple of them including Wellwood which have been in the making for more than a year and which I've completely lost interest in. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.
...that I'd love to knit.
Brooklyn Tweed released Wool People 7 earlier this week. 11 sweaters and 4 scarfs all inspired by Japanese knitting books. I'm itching to cast on for arabella, coda and natsumi although it really wouldn't be a wise thing to do, considering how many unfinished knits I have in my pile. Patience.
You can see the rest of the collection here.

Let's pretend it hasn't been almost 4 months since I posted anything on here and just move on to the knitting, yes?!
These are some of my current projects.
I finished the ipad cover in the midst of studying for my exam last week. It was my companion when I needed a break and nice to have on hand while watching just a little bit more of 'Call the Midwife'.
The sweater is almost done, just need to weave in the ends. I used the Light Sweater pattern from pickles as inspiration since I wanted it bigger and with full length arms. It's big and warm and fuzzy - and not really appropriate for this lovely Spring weather we're enjoying at moment. But it'll be perfect when Fall rolls around.
I started the Top Tee last year but never finished because I wasn't sure about my color choice. Still not sure but its (colorful) presence in my unfinished pile of knitwear was starting to bug me so now it's back on my needles. Here's hoping that I'll fall in love with the colors once it's finished.
A couple of weeks ago, my sister and I went to Grenå to visit our mormor for our annual Christmas Cookie Baking weekend. We started early (hence the PJ-bottoms in the last photos) and were done after just a couple of hours. Finishing the cookie adventure by eating her famous 'frikadeller' for lunch.
I love that last picture. Self-timer when it's best!
