Quality knitting


Masada

On 10 April my blog turned one year; I should have written a post about it yesterday but was nowhere near a computer.


Nor did I knit much, but on the other hand I let quality take precedence over quantity: what better way to celebrate than to knit a couple of rows on top of Masada overlooking the Dead Sea and the Jordanian heights? (By the way, it seems I'm turning into a chameleon, colour matching my environment in terms of clothes as well as knitting. And clothes again. Etc.)
Floating in the Dead Sea was glorious after hours of driving and walking: like bathing in silk. No knitting in the water for me, though. (Sic!)


Other highlights that day included seeing lots of ibices and some hyraces in the Ein Gedi national park.














Here's a view of the Dead Sea and the Jordanian heights from the Ein Gedi national park. Spot the ibex!

Men Jesus Maria Stickarn (Assar spelade just Jönssonligansignaturen), du har ju gjort en variant av den där killen som visade ..... framför kända turistmål.

Ha - själv kom jag att tänka på trädgårdstomten som placerades framför kända platser i världen. Så olika går associationerna!
