My view out of the window this week. I am with my DH on a fishing trip on the island Leka in Norway. He catches big cod and other fish which we freeze and take home . It is cold but nice weather.
During the days I knit, embroider and read and make the hot meals in the end of the day.
There are two other men too and after a whole day fishing they have a good appetite ;)
The shawl is a pattern I have knit before. Shetland lace triangle. Not difficult to knit. Hand-dyed yarn in purple nuances.
The book is a very good written book. It is about three generations women.
A great-grandmother, grand mother and mother of the author. And a little bit about herself.
The book's name is: Hundre År.
( A hundred years)
Written by Herbjørg Wassmo.
She also is the author of : "the book Dina" which is translated in many languages. There is also a movie made of the book "Dina".
I like books about people inter-waved in a bit of history.
They become almost alive to me.
