Knitting for grandchildren is a joy! Glad you could save the pants. Socks are the perfect "knit on the go" project. Although I do not travel much, I have friends who do and they know I like to knit. So when I receive a souvenier gift from their travels, it is not unusual for it to be one or two skeins of local yarn. Right now I am knitting socks with a lovely blue-green Irish wool. It is a bit scratchy so I am hoping it will soften up with a wash.


How wonderful to receive local skeins of yarn as a souvenir gift. I might adopt that idea.

Hi Susan. I don´t know why it doeasn´t work for you. I cheked it and it looked okay for me.
If you are on facebook you can follow this site, where I will post all the blog´s updates:


Love this new blog! I've been a reader of yours for years! I learned to knit from my Mom over forty years ago, and yet all I can make is a scarf! Ha! Now that I'm expecting a grandchild, I suppose it's time to learn to knit something else.


Is this your first grandchild Terry? How exciting.
Yes, of course you must knit something for the new baby.


What a sweet picot (spelling?) edge on your green sock. I like this idea of a yarn for each place you travel and a paif of socks to remember it by. I like that you are showing us a variety of knitting things - socks, sweater, leggings, etc. Always something exciting. Thank you so much for this new blog.


Thank you Ardi.
What a lot of knitting fun we will have in the summer when you come to Norway. Well, not only knitting fun of course.......

  • maskerade
    The first step is always the most exciting. I am sitting in a small hotel room, somewhere in Norway. I am knitting, and all of a sudden I knew it was time to start a knitting blog. Maskerade, masquerade, playing with words as maske is the Norwegian word for a knitted stich, rad is a row. Knitted stich in a row - maskerade.
