Easter time

First of all, I’m sorry that I haven’t blogged in a while. There are several reasons for that, actually. Life has been a bit challenging lately, to be honest. We’ve been moving at work, from a several offices area to a open landscape, and that combined with our department (approx 20 people) being more or less without a leader for a couple of months, getting new tasks that we’re not quite sure about, and having more than enough to do from before, well, let’s just say we struggle a but at work these days. So, when I could take my Easter vacation after worked half a day on Wednesday, I was very pleased.

Also, things are happening with my family in the north, things I have no control over, and can do nothing about, just watch happening. The worst part is that someone is being hurt, and there’s absolutely nothing I can do about it! If I could, I’d be more than happy to trade places, but I can’t.

So, on to some more interesting news, perhaps. I’ve finished two pairs of Mitered mittens since I blogged last time. This pair for my mother, knitted in Noro Silk Garden colour 267.

And also this pair, for my oldest sister, knitted in Noro Silk Garden colour 292. I know, they look like they’re knitted with twocompletely different colours, but the labels said it’s the same.

Both pairs were birthday gifts, and I was a bit nervous about the pink/purple pair, I had to add a note to them, saying that I’d knit her a new pair if she wanted two mittens that matched more. I wouldn’t blame her if she did. But, luckily she loved them, and I got a MMS from her the other day with a picture of her wearing them, saying she uses them, so I guess we got a happy ending there. :)

Amongst other news, we’ve bought ourselves a new camera, a Canon EOS 550D (picture ganked from Canon). We’ve only had it for a few days, so we haven’t tested it properly yet, but I do look forward to trying it out. I am considering buying a portable photo studio as well, something like this, but we’ll see.   EOS_550D
