Sorry, had it scheduled to post and it didn't, sorry...
Okay...not sure what I'll put here...if I'll add anything, but wanted to have something up for you guys to link....so if I don't add anything, it's because I'm too busy discovering Norway...play nice amongst yourselves and I'll be back next week!
And the linky is gone and I don't remember my password for it......so if you'd like to share. Add your link in the comments....so sorry this did not work. I'll be back next week...
Yesterday we went to a couple of yarn shops (posts later) and then drove around the countryside and decided to go see a waterfall. Tone thought we could drive to it...nope, we had to climb a mountain. I did not have on good shoes for this and am seriously out of shape...it took me an hour...but I climbed that mountain!
Was it worth it? You decide....
I have other pictures, but they are on my phone, and I can't seem to blog from my phone.
I'm getting this set up for when I will be away....I'll actually miss two weeks, but hopefully will get on to post this on Sunday...as it's suppose to be raining in Norway at this time.....

It's a cover for my tablet. I have two, and this is the smaller one that I am taking on my trip...it needed a cover....So I found some Mirasol Akapana. I just created it as I went...
I crocheted a chain until it was slightly bigger than width of tablet...then I crocheted in the round, half double crochet in back loops..at the top, I added a shell stitch....although the yarn is gorgeous (it's kind of tweedy)..I decided to add a picture...so pulled out my scraps and created a grassy hill and three flowers...the only part I really don't like is the color of the sun...I didn't have a really yellow, yellow...so it's lemon yellow....
I also figured the picture would add some more protection to the screen of the tablet....
I am traveling today....I fly from Charlotte, North Carolina to London (overnight Thursday)...I have a long layover in London (about 6 hours) and I hope to get into the city for a bit...and then I fly to Stavanger...so I'll be exhausted!!! I'll check in at some point to see if this posted....
Good morning! Next Wednesday I will be in Norway!!!!!!! I will have a post ready to go...but honestly the last time I tried to schedule a post, it didn't work...so I'll at least have one ready tog oa nd if it doesn't, I'll just pop in and post it....does that make sense?
As I said on Sunday, I kind of lost my knitting mojo this week...but on Sunday, I did start a crocheted tablet cover...
I did finish that and will post on Friday....
I also needed to start my "travel" project...now I have tons of socks in various states, but I wanted to work something new...so I wound up my Marvin Says from YarnEnabler and started on a pair of Pin Stripe Socks...they are my Martian Marvin in Norway socks....(and I'll be wearing them for The Martian movie this fall!)
The stripes are going to be of different sizes...and it's a little thrilling to see what color is coming out next...
So I guess that is about all for me right now....I plan on doing a couple of posts, my Friday one..and I have a Saturday one planned...and then my YOP for Sunday...I will also be posting from Norway when I can...my friend has WiFi, so should be good...I won't arrive in Norway until Friday night..
This where I'll be...
I hope you all have a wonderful week!!!! Any vacation plans?
