This is the Nobel Peace Center.
The "World Knitting Day" was held here a couple of weeks ago...I would have loved to have been there for that special event.
Today we visited a market in a nearby little town and then had a picnic on the beach...the sea was icy cold,but the locals were toughing it out.

I certainly think that he was trying to communicate with me ,
so I found him something to wear and a feijoa to eat, and he has decided to stay.
He told me that you can find more of his brothers and sisters here.

It is such a good feeling to finally stitch together the knitting and to try it on for the first time.
This was a big success. I first spun the yarn from Ewe Give Me the Knits and then made a little cardigan using the pattern "Mya"from Rowan Junior.
I was very happy with my cardigan as well. I used Noro Silk Garden, and once I got going it knitted up very quickly indeed.
I shall probably take it with me on our trip. We are going to the summit of Mt Titlis in Switzerland at the end of our holiday and I have been told that at the top it is very very cold, and warm layers are needed! At the bottom of the mountain it could be 22 degrees and at the top minus eight ! I shall need to make sure my camera is well charged that day because I know I shall want to take thousands of photos!

Hot colours for a cold winter's day.
A pot of cyclamens,
Hibiscus still flowering, but only just !
and my beloved old favorite...Winter Sweet, the scent of this is just divine.
We have one more week before we start our travels to Italy, and then Norway to catch up with Melissa and her family. I hope to continue this blog whilst I am away, so you can share our holiday too.
