Bird Cherry (Hegg)

I finished the cloth I was knitting during Chooky's Chookshed celebrations last weekend! It's really pretty, and I think I'm going to put it in the gift basket to give away later. I'm feeling the urge to cast on another one, but I think there's a new pattern being released in a KAL (knit along) some time tomorrow, so I might just wait and see if the new pattern is to my liking.

Anyway, here are a couple of pictures taken of the cloth, freshly cast off.

Purple is one of my favorite colors.
The pattern is by the norwegian knitting designer Bittami - who's quite popular on Ravelry, and on FaceBook.

Bird Cherry (Hegg in Norwegian).

I also took some amazing sunset pictures the other evening. It was just before the rain started, and at some point it looked like the building next door was on fire. Pretty cool!

I love sunsets (and sunrises, although I do prefer to be in bed, sleeping, at that time of the morning..).

All the colors seem more vibrant and clear against the burning fires of the sky.

And then the glowing golden turns into soft pink and purple.. 

I also finished the little stitchery I started just before the weekend. I shared a picture of this too during the weekend, and I managed to put the final stitches in this afternoon. The project itself is far from done, as I most likely need a sewing machine to complete it, and I've packed mine down (we're having carpenters redecorating our living room and hallway in about a week and a half, which means that we need to pack down and move around on quite a lot of stuff..). 

Indeed, life is sweet!
