Nordic Knitting Symposium in Joensuu part 1

I spent last week in Joensuu at the Nordic Knitting Symposium. I have a lot to tell but no time. I have bags to unpack, clothes to wash and bags to pack.

I took four workshops:
I saw amazing knitting:

I met old and new fiends:

We went to the top of the world:

Dyening some yarn

A friend of mine Celebrated her birthday last week. As she is an amazing lace knitter I purchased two hanks of Merino Oro that I knitted together on the knitting mashine dyed
and unravelled as I have described in a previous post.  
My friend likes blue and red and this is how the balls of yarn looked when ready to be wrapped in gift wrapping.

I was worried my friend would not like the yarn but I had no reason to, she loved it and I am happy.
