"Dear Pinneguri, Wool is an essential part of such an Easter holiday.
I hope you've had a nice Easter holiday. Thank you so much for your invitation to tell about my "Påsketur" (Easter trip).
The photo shows me (ie my feet) in front of the fireplace. I made the socks many years ago, for my husband, actually. But I've sort of taken them back, because he never uses them. I think they're too small, and probably it's not his colours, either. (I don't really blame him, and I'm happy to have the socks to myself ;-) )
We celebrated Easter in what is supposed to be a traditional Norwegain Easter holiday: With family, in a mountain cottage, skiing, playing in the snow, reading crime novels (well, acutally, I read Knausgård), eating chocolate and oranges, playing cards and other games. This should be combined with s u n, and the smell of sunscreen, which was not the case this year. It was cloudy and snowy.
I made this clothes hanger at school when I was about eleven. I remember I had sewn it together with blue yarn, and my teacher made me unravel it and do it over with yellow and blue yarn alternating. I found her extremely stupid!
I also had the opportunity to get a modelled photo of my brother's last Christmas gift, "Latvian hat".
I understand you went abroad for your holiday, Pinneguri, that was probably a good idea. But in spite of the weather, we all agreed it was an nice Easter. And now, we're looking forwards to a warm and sunny spring! Have a nice day!
Best wishes, Torirot

PS Of course there was some knitting too, more about that later."
