Sorry for late swap posting/updating

I must apologize for my late posting here about all those lovely swap packets I`ve got this spring/summer. My studies and exams + our youngest daughers Confirmation Day, June 1st, have taken all my time. My exams went very well and I can enjoy the summer doing lots of knitting. Have some projects on my needles right now. Looking forward showing them here when they are done.

I and hubby went to Lillehammer June 2nd, a 2000 kms drive, one way, for my last exam and bringing back my belongings from my study apartment. Had a lovely week in south. Drove through Finland and Sweden both ways. Last day I had an accident in Finland, falling through a gas station window. Don`t ask how it happened, have no better explanation than I was looking for hubby and didn`t see the small step in front of the gas station - hit the window with my head, window got broken. I must have had a guardian angel watching over me as the only cut I got was in left little finger, when protecting my face. I got a huge bump in my head, which still hurt, but it could have gone a lot worse. I was soooo lucky not getting a lot more hurt.

Now I`m enjoying the best summer job ever, in a company running the local LYS. :)

Gifts from my LYS # 2 swap - Ravelry

This gorgeous packet was sent me by Tintsu in Finland. White and ice-blue is my fave colours this spring/summer. Will find something nice to make with the yarn. Love all what you got for me. Thanks a lot.

Dishcloth and tea swap - Ravelry

This swap I got from kathyaless in the US. I love the cotton yarn, which I can`t buy here in Norway. Thank you so very much.

My favourite things swap - Ravelry

This gorgeous packet was sent me by "Rish Bish" in USA. Lots of lovely things she likes. Don`t know yet what to use the lovely yarn for, but I`m sure somthing nice will come up for it. Thanks a lot.

Hat swap - Ravelry

This lovely hat was made for me by Brandi in Illinois, USA. She also enclosed some viewcards and a keychain. Thanks a lot Brandi.
