From left to right, upper row:
Chana bc, Lime Blue lc, Rocha lc,Curacao LC
Huertas lc, Purple Gold LC
I have to admit I have to guess which was which of Lime Blue lc, Curacao LC and Huertas lc, but the other ones are correct!

Lano: Is a grey and white guinea pig with REALLY long fur... I have to cut it so it doesn't get too long and really tangelled up... She's very cute, only about 10months old! I got her when my oldest piggy died in november. She's also the smartest of the two, she really knows how to get my attention and let me know EXACTLY what she wants! You could say I've been trained to be a good owner\servant.
Sunligh: Is a "rosett" guinea pig (don't know what it's really called in english), she has fur going in literally all directions. She's white, brown and black, and LOVES her food... She's really lazy, and getting fat (I need ideas to get her moving), the only thing that really gets her going is FOOD and if I want her to move around a bit I give her a foodball (you know, one of those where you stick some goodies inside and the animal have to push it around and sometimes some food comes out of a hole).
First picture: From left to right, needles with holder (I just love that kind of needles, don't know if I can get them here), goodies for my little guinea pigs (who are VERY happy at the moment), goodies for me (I'm saving them for now, they look jummy but I can't stay up eating candy when I have a 8am lecture tomorrow morning!). The green thing is a tape measure (love it, sooo cute), and on top of it is 15cm needles size 2,25 (I don't have needles in 1/4 sizes so I'm so happy!), there's stitchmarkers in the little bag and in front there's lovely wooden (handmade!!!!) needles with little owls on top... look how cute they are....
Second picture: The lovely bag (which you can read more about over at Ruth), love both the yarn and pattern, and I have Koigu which I've only read about in overseas blogs... love the feel of it, can I really knit socks in this yarn??? just LOOK at the colors!!!!
Oh, and the beaded needles kinda sneaked into the picture again!
Thank you SO much Ruth!!!! Now I just hope my KSK-pal gets her kit soon... It was sent a few days BEFORE I was told my kit was on its way!

I made some changes... I knitted a (p1, k1) ribbing, I knitted the dividing stiches as (p1, k1, p1) and I didn't knit (sl1, k1) on the heelflap (I forgot, was knitting on the go and didn't have the pattern present)...
Changes I'd like to make
I'd really like the two stiches which end as (ssk, k2tog) to be cabeled on the knit-round, so you knit the ssk stitch before the k2tog stitch... ofcourse it's up to you if you want to or not, but I think it'd make it a more distinkt pattern!
I can't tell you what I'll make for the KAL, since it has to stay a secret until september 20th... Will show it then...

I'm tired, started a new studyprogram today, doing a 1year teaching education on top of my master... It's hard when the busses doesn't correspond so you have to get up VERY early!

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag whomever you want, or not.
Ok... since I'm selling a lot of old schoolbooks this year, I grabbed the one currently at the top of the pile, it's called Developing JAVA Software, so this might be interesting (it haven't been opened the last few years)... I'll skip the javacode and count sentences from where the text begins.
"The expressions array.length selects the first row of the 2D array and returns its length, given the number of columns to be added up (remember how 2D arrays are represented as an array of arrays). The expression array.length gives the number of rows. For this program, testing is a matter of checking the totals displayed against the argument array."

FBS i babyull jeg fikk av min HV på HB ;) mye forkortelser her. Pinne 5,5, 8 repetisjoner av lower basket.
Min curliecue, strikket i rubin superwash fra sparkjøp på pinne 4,5. Brukte 12 nøster og ca 1 meter av nøste nr 13... Ble litt over 120cm i diameter men jeg merker det vokser i bruk også!
Sokker i regia, måtte bruke litt av et annet nøste med litt annen fargekombinasjon men syns ikke det ble så alt for galt... Strikket av restegarn :) La opp 60 masker med 4 tråds regia på pinne 3,5 og de ble kjempebra, tror jeg må opp til den størrelsen på 4 tråds regia!
This is what I've been knitting this summer, details have been given in norwegian only.
