MIDSUMMER celebration

It's Midsummer celebration/St. Johns day in Norway.A day where many people go to a beach and have a bonfire, or settle in on the porch to spend the evening wiht friends, family, good food- maybe barbequed- and that sort of thing.
Hardly ever is it a day of good weather so some suffering is required- and lots of wool must be worn.
And here you see some of the clouds we've been offered this evening.

BUT: the girls and I prepared a great BBQ meal and started out with low music in the background and candles on the table.

Then there was coffee and cookies and some blankets around the butts!

Now the girls have gone inside to watch a show on TV and i've been out with the dog- and all we want to do is stay inside....
PLUS I've made a mistake in my knitting two rounds ago!!! GRRRRR....

But I discovered something: I have been permanently scarred from this knitting hobby: Look closely at my fingertip on this (somewhat blurry)photo. See the little white mark of hard skin where I push the needle for every stich I make?
