blogging has opened up a great big world for me, the “craft” bloggers out there are just so amazing and inspirational!!!  They send fabulous stuff too.   It feels good.

in knitting news…. I finished a beret and liked it so much that I immediately cast on another one in red…on my new addi turbo needles that my sister sent me for christmas…(again with the love!!!) I got the pattern from Interweave Knits winter 2006 and the inspiration from Moonstitches……

    Yes, I got the magazines!! Thank you for sending them to me! I blogged about it: http://ravenhill.typepad.com/weblog/2008/02/this-has-been-a.html

    Nice shot Jan of the gifts you have received. Do you have any plans for your Norwegian buttons?

    yes, mom… the beautiful pin which is difficult to photograph properly is a “namesake”

    as for the other buttons, my favorite one has a moose on it…I am waiting for inspiration. since I don’t knit sweaters….I will save them for embellishing….. hats perhaps….or maybe a closure on a bag of some sort. at any rate, I really love to just look at the buttons and play with them. simple pleasures.

    I love it! So cool.

    I love those buttons too – reminds me of my hometown in Iowa and great memories of my time as an exchange student in Norway. I think your ideas for them are great.

    The hats are also awesome.
