Royal company

Today I was delighted to get to meet a great knitter and fellow Raveler from Norway for the first time! We first got in touch on Flickr a few years ago. I only wish I could have stayed longer today. Next time in Norway?

Of course, it is always a treat seeing Born to knit, Maria and Karin too. We also caught a few glimpses of the royal wedding (Crown Princess Victoria) from two screens on the café walls, but I do prefer Knitting Royalty and so found it very easy to concentrate on my friends instead.

Speaking of great knitters, my grandmother who taught me how to knit would have turned 90 today. How many knitting hours we could have spent together during the past twenty years!

Så synd att jag inte kunde stanna längre idag. Det hade varit roligt att träffa dig! Men jag fick i alla fall hälsa på Ann, som så vänligt låter mig prova den vackra barntröjan hon stickade nyligen. Vilken lyx!

Vilken otur - jag hade gärna träffat dig också. Det blir fler tillfällen!

For en fantastisk flott dag (dager faktisk!) jeg hadde i Stockholm, og så godt jeg ble tatt vare på. Jeg føler meg virkelig kongelig mottatt! Tusen takk, Asplund (og Tove og Karin og Kari og Tanja og Joahnne og Maria), dette kan jeg leve lenge på :D
Og - kom til Norge, kom til Oslo eller Bergen og la meg gjøre stas på dere også, tilbake.

Jättekul att träffas igen! Nästa gång kanske jag t.o.m hinner sticka lite ;)
