I went on a mini road trip with a friend and visited Läckö Castle. It was beautiful, but I think my favourite part was the kitchen gardens.

A very pretty blue flower.

Whoever's in charge of this garden sure knows how to set up a still life.

Picture heavy hey-I'm-still-alive-post

I've gone far too long without posting here!

I think it's partly because I'm not 100% sure what I want this blog to be (like, how personal do I want to get? Do I want to share my thoughts or just post pictures of things I've made?), and the longer I go without posting, the harder it becomes to write something. And not to write too much when I finally do.

I'm enjoying summer anyway, it's nice not to have to think about lectures and exams all the time, though I do need to send in some papers so I can get my degree (yay, finished my bachelor's degree!). Of course, the person I need to talk to is on vacation, so I need to wait a bit.

Some pictures of what I've been up to, in no particular order:

Growing radishes

Scratching goats

Visited mom in Glastonbury

Had picnics in the garden

Gone for walks in the Scanian countryside

Finally got the hang of crochet thanks to Malin Bohm's excellent blog! (Swedish only I'm afraid). Not sure if I should block it. Probably? It's smallish because I ran out of yarn but boyfriend likes it and it's a good scarf size for him.

More garden picnics

Started knitting another lace shawl (still need to weave in the ends of my first one, but at least I've blocked it now! Here it is on Ravelry). The yarn is fiddlier than anything and I need to take a break every two rows, but it's fun!

Been to an old quarry which is now a lake (people actually jump from those cliffs!)

Watched the cats play in the garden

Admired my growing jungle

All in all, having a pretty nice summer break (which is what sommarlov means)
