cottage weekend

It's been too long... First our new ADSL worked perfectly- then we were without phone and internet connection for a while- now we're okay- i think...
Have been really busy lately, my goal was originally to post something every weekend. Anhow ; here I am.
We've been spending the weekend at the cottage up in the mountains (see photo of GORGEOUS VIEW!) The colours are really happening now.
I have a basket full of yarn up there; it will end up as a blanket for snoozing on the couch. Whenever I'm up there I knit a few squares. This weekend I had no needles!!!! Forgot that I had used them for a scarf I started up there- and then brought with me home to finish.
Well- if you are hooked on knitting you'll find a way: The kids had paintbrushes! It worked fine.(see photo)
I took pictures of two felted hens and a pair of felted slippers that I made earlier while I was up there.
On Saturday we picked some blueberries and some "tyttebær". Yummy stuff. ("tyttebær" is similar to cranberries, only smaller. Can be used as cranberries -with your turkey dinner, pork roast, etc, but you can also whip them together with sugar and it makes the most delicious jam!
We are now back home, have been in the shower (even the dog!) and is all set to do nothing this evening (except knitting-and undoing some of the damage I did to the needlepoint I'm working on."#¤%&§: you know what I mean....)
