*whining*

I hate moving so, so, so much. I've been packing and throwing things away, and there seems to be no end to it. *sigh*
The moving day is this Friday, and then we have two days to get our current place cleaned up. I don't even want to think how long it'll take to unpack everything at the new house, but I bet I'll still be trying to find places to all the things next July...
Also, it keeps hailing here at random almost every day, when it's otherwise sunny and looks like spring. Weird.
Well, if I survive this move without losing my mind, I'll congratulate myself SO much. There will be chocolate.

Answer for question 4484.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Depends on the company I'm in. If I know they are either interested in grammar or don't mind the correction, I might say something. Usually, however, I do keep my mouth shut, because I understand them anyway, so why possibly insult anyone.
In English I usually notice the most common mistakes, and the one that bugs me the most is "should of" instead of "should've." In Finnish it always catches my eye when people write "kumpa" or "niimpä", when the correct way is "kunpa" and "niinpä." Yeah, I suppose I am a grammar nazi...

Plans

Hotel and flights booked. Looks like we'll really be visiting London again this spring :) This time I'm going with my daughter and her friend, because this is my daughter's reward for finishing her school well.
A few days of shopping, musicals and some sights. And maybe I'll meet up with an internet friend, who lives near London. That would be really nice.

Answer for question 4160.

[Error: unknown template qotd]My first best friend was born just six days before me, our moms knew each other, her grandma took care of us when we were little, and we're still friends. So we've always known each other, and we've never lost the friendship, which is pretty unbelievable and also amazing :)

A couple of more knits

I finished the socks for [livejournal.com profile] ranmaru_fics and will post them hopefully today. They are very green, as she wanted, for St. Patrick's Day. I really wasn't able to get the true green to show in the picture, no matter where I tried, so the colour is a bit more brighter than in the pic. I hope you like them :)

And I also knitted a new slouchy for myself. I absolutely LOVE the yarn. It's called Folksong Chunky, and the colours are like made for me. Teddy was my model today, because taking selfies of a slouchy really is... almost impossible, and the kids aren't at home at the moment. So here's Teddy:

A Knitting Post

Yeah, I've been busy with the knitting needles again. Mostly knitting socks for myself :D

2013-08-29-176


And because I had leftover yarn from the green socks, I made a baby hat. I thought it would be unisex, since green is... a unisex color? But the lace of course turned it into a totally girly hat. Now, one of my friends is pregnant, and my sister-in-law is pregnant, so one of them is BOUND to have a girl, right? If not, I can just donate it somewhere, I guess.

This happy is because my brother is going to have a baby :) They've been married for a year, and had apparently tried for a couple of months, and now they're very much pregnant. I'll have a new niece or nephew, and I get to knit cute little things for her/him! Happyhappyjoyjoy indeed :D

It is way too hot here, for me that is. When the temperature hits 30 C, all I want to do, is sit in a cool shower. Which I can't do, because I would be a wrinkly blob, and our water bill would be huge :(
Also, I'm trying to keep my tomato plant alive, and now I need to water it a lot, and I'm prone to forgetting it usually. Now I can't slip up, or bye-bye sweet little tomatoes... I so want you.

Hey, you all :) It's spring, which is sort of nice, although I don't enjoy the waking of the bugs at all... Or all the dust in the air. But still not complaining.
Saara wanted a spring/summer hat thingy, and this is what I made. Also, she now has pink hair :D

She also wanted thin socks, and I found a fairly difficult pattern. They look a bit funky, because she pulled them over the jeggings, but you get the general idea anyway, I think.

22042013379

And as a nice ending, this is a gingerbread tree Saara made. Doesn't look Christmassy at all, when you use these colours. I love it, and I wish I could eat it, but it's a price for a raffle...

Mittens

Felted mittens. I love the colour of the yarn. I added the ribbons, because the mittens turned out a tad bit too wide, although I had knitted and felted a swatch. Well, I think I like them better this way :)

Here's a pic of the gingerbread tree finished, meaning that it's standing upright. Saara also made a gingerbread house, which was really cute and very tasty too...
