I also worked a lot on knitting my scarf, which turned out to be very fat and rather short. However, that can be used to an advantage because it makes a very nice collar that would fit under a coat or sweater. I'll pretend I did it that way on purpose. I still need to get a large button to keep it closed. It's very thick wool, so I know it will be really warm, and I'm quite excited about it.
After I finished my knitting project, Anders asked if I could start on his scarf. I did half the number of stitches, so it should be a good width this time -and that will mean it can be longer as well! Still using wool from the recycle shop, so our colours are limited, but he really liked the red so it will be half-red. He wants the other half to be blue, so I'm going to have to look for some blue wool. Torben wants a multitonal blue for his. Right now I have just a bit of that, so we'll see what it looks like and what colours he wants added to it.
On Sunday after brunch, Bolette -one of the other teachers- invited the boys to come over to play in the garden with her twins. They are 7, and the four kids have a fun time playing together. They live across the street, and I could hear the laughing and playing from inside the house, while they were outside over there. It's fun to hear kids playing freely.
Sunday afternoon we took a short drive to walk part of the Kongeå path. It is a 67Km path that winds along the river, and for centuries this river was the border between Denmark and Germany. There are marked footpaths (read: not stroller-friendly) along the entire 67Km, and it's designed to be taken in in small doses, so you don't have to do all of it at once. We decided to start at the Knag Mill, which is near one end of it and is closest to where we live.
It was a gorgeous day and perfect for taking pictures. Svea wanted to take some too, apparently. She sort of looks like a baby pterodactyl here. (nice, I spelled that correctly the first time! No annoying red squiggly lines)
The river really is beautiful here. There was one guy backpacking his way along it, and another was fishing. It seems like a good place to fish -very quiet and peaceful.
This one really makes it look like we're out in the boonies. We weren't actually very far from the road, and the river is just past Anders. I wish Jeff could have been on this side of the camera as well -but there wasn't anyone else around to take a photo for us. It's a cute one of me and the kids, though.
