A slight obsession with glassjars!

I have a slight obsession with BIG glass jars! I absolutely love them, and bottles and ...

These three are usually by my bed... they are full of things that the children have found such as sea shells, sea urchin skeletons, stones and... a cat's skull...

Then there are these two bottles of wine that one finds among the rubbish after bottling season... I have given some of these away and the smaller one still needs to be properly washed, while the bigger one keeps our collection of gass marbles.

 Then there are these two... ugly picture but anyway... these are being filled with leftover yarn, until I                  decide how to use the yarn...

The first of a series

 My son asked for a super slouchy hat, and since I wasn't sure what he wanted I made one for myself first... My son likes it and my daughter wants it!!! And it's Wollmeise yarn, so I'd love to keep it myself!!! I guess not, huh?   Well, it means this is the first of a series...

The pattern is Sockhead, and the yarn is Wollmeise Twin in the colourway Sabrina...

September/October Figs

No more dark figs, now it is time for the sweetest, softest ones!
These fill our trees until early November,  if we don´t get a terrible storm before then.

Today is the last day of Minerva´s summer vacation... Matteo started yesterday!
