Number one: Today I bought tickets to Copenhagen! Yay! I’m going in September and I’ll be staying there for a few days visiting my lovely cousin that lives there. Can’t wait. It will be nice to get away from this island for a bit.
Number two: I had four days off this weekend and it feels like I have been away from work for ten days or something. I managed to do a lot in this weekend. Spent two days “at home”, at my hometown. And two days here in Reykjavik, enjoying the weather and playing a tourist 😉 Yesterday I went too yet another art museum that I’ve never been too. Very interesting. And I travelled a bit around town on my bike. Then I got my friend E to come with me to Reykjavik Zoo. It was fun! It’s not a very exotic zoo to say the least, only Icelandic farm animals and a few wild native ones.
Here’s me talking to some friends I made:
Shortly after that the sheep on the right got it’s head stuck in between the bars. Sheep are not the most intelligent of animals… For a moment there I thought I would have to get a zoo employee and tell them that I had got their sheep stuck in the fence… But I managed to free my friend in the end.
After that E and I ate dinne at the best burger place in Reykjavík – simply called the Burger joint. Love that place!
Number 3: I got this weird craving at work tonight: I really wanted water with lime. I don’t think I’ve ever really tasted that before! But do you know what, water is a lot more interesting with a few slices of lime in it!
I’m kind of tired after a long work weekend. I really do not like working on weekends. I need my days off! But luckily I get four days off in stead next weekend. That is if my boss won’t trick me into working. She can be very persuasive and I’m going to say NO. Note to self: say NO.
I’ve been thinking about knitting quite a lot, projects I want to do and such. I’m still knitting that sweater I started a few weeks ago. I’m not very enthusiastic about it to tell the truth. But I’m stubborn and I want to finish it before I start something else. I have a long list of possible projects lined up!
For example I would really like to make something out of this yarn:
This is Icelandic laceweight yarn in yummy colors. I just want to eat it! It is homedyed and called nammi (candy). A suitable name! Check it out here
I have been working a lot these past few days and the weekend was all about work. I even had to go to work at 8 o’clock this morning. That must be against the law! It should be at least, waking up so early on Sundays is not my favorite thing.
I still managed to do some fun things though. Went out to dinner with some friends on friday and was invited to dinner at my friends’ house yesterday. I haven’t cooked in ages I must admit… And my fridge looks kind of depressing these days, I haven’t been to a grocery store for a while now. Hopefully I’ll be able to do that tomorrow.
I bought some wool on friday. It can be dangerous to work at a store that sells yarn! But luckily the Icelandic wool is not very expensive, compared to other yarn.
I decided to try the Plötulopi now, the unspun yarn from Istex. That’s a first time for me and I have to say it’s easier than I thought. And it’s really soft.
It was a quiet weekend at work so I managed to knit quite a lot.
The wool and the beginning of a sweater!
