Quiz #5

Hufflepuff House Quiz #5 
Hello Hufflepuffs! This week's house quiz is in Transfiguration. Transfigure the following quote from Order of the Phoenix back into English and post it to your blog by noon (est) on Tuesday, July 1st.


'You know what?' Ron murmured, looking over at the bar with enthusiasm. 'We could order anything we liked in here. I bet that bloke would sell us anything, he wouldn't care. I've always wanted to try firewhisky -'

Back from the island

We came home last evening, and my head still doesn´t quite get that I´m back in the city.. So 
I´m sorry if I don´t make any cense..:) 
Our vacation was very love, the weather was ok most of the time, but it also rained.. But I like rain and it´s good for the environment, so I´m not sad at all.. We barbequed a lot, had great company (neighbors and my little brother wiht his girlfriend), little gardening, some fixing up the place, very relaxing indeed. I didn´t have the time or the will to knit more than a few lines, so nothing new to show you guys today, sorry.
But I do have some pictures to show you, so here we go!

the sunset is always so pretty..these are from different places and differet days.

Local seagull nesting. We used to go swimming from this rock, but not this time..

Our pet lizard, he was so tame that he walked on my leg. He lives under our porch.

Three baby-seagulls, quite cute.

Milla enjoyed the sun, freedom and that someone was always ready to pet her!

Scenery from the rock. The third pier from left is ours.

Finally some FO`s!! Vihdoin kuvia valmiista töistä!

Sain vihdoin suostuteltua tuon ukkokultani kuvaamaan valmisuneita neuleita, joten niitä tulee nyt kerralla aika läjä..Joten piteemmittä puheitta, olkaa hyvä! En viitsinyt kirjoittaa tietoja enää suomeksi, mutta etteköhän te niistä selvän saa..:) Neuleet ovat siinä järjestyksessä kun ne on valmistuneet.

I finally got my DH to photograph my FO´s, so here´s quite many at the same time. So without further ado, here we go! The items are in the order they were finished. 

Pattern: Kesätoppi/Summer top
Yarn: Some old Novita yarn and on the hem Novita Jasmine
Needles: not shure
Else: This was made by my mum last summer, it´s bit small 
but good for warm days in our cabin.

   Desiger: Shelley Mackie
Size: About 2 years old
Yarn: Novita 7-veljestä jättiraita (75% wool, 25% nylon)
Needles: 5,0 and 5,5mm
About: This is for my god-daughter, hope it fits!

 Designer: Jodi Green
   Size: M
Yarn: Pirtin kehräämön 140 TEX x 3 (100% wool)
Needle: 5,0mm
About: This is for my DH. The sleeves are made by the size M, 
and body lot´s smaller. DH would have fitted twice in the 
sweater if I had made it according to the pattern..But it´s 
ok now, and DH is happy with it!

 Designer: Fathom Harvill
   Size: S
Yarn: Novita Olivia (70%bamboo, 30% polyester)
Needles: 4,5 and 5,0mm
About: I LOVE this one! I´ve allready used it a lot, 
the yarn is so soft and lovely, and the pattern is great 
and quick to knit!

 Designer: Mary Weaver
   Yarn: Austermann Kokon (100% silk) 337g
Needles: 4,5mm
Size: S
About: When I saw Nasti´s version from Mrs. Darcy made 
from this yarn, I knew I had to copy the combination! I bought 
this yarn from sale, and had been wondering what to make 
from it. I like this a lot!

Pattern: Stripy pullover, my own
 Designer: Me!
   Yarn: Gjestal Topp t´tå (100% superwash wool)
Needles: 7mm
Size: small, to fit me and my monkey arms
About: This is the first pullover ever, that I have 
made totally without pattern. I think it turned out 
great, I like the colourcombo, and it´s warm to wear 
on cooler summer evenings..

Then something that is not totally finished, but I like it already so much that I have to show it to you:

   Desiger: Shelley Mackie
Size: Adult
Yarn: Katia Alpaca Andes (100% alpaca) in three shades
Needles: 5,0mm
About: This is going to be lovely! The yarn is sooo soft! 
I think I´ll take this with me at cabin, so I can finish the 
sleeves and start wearing this..:)

Olen myös harrastanut hieman shoppailua..:) Tällaiset ihanuudet saapui tälläviikolla postiluukusta!! :)

I´ve also done some shopping this week. Look what wonderful things I got this week!

Succaplokit ja puiccomittarit Liinalta! Aivan ihanat, ja 
lisää plussaa tulee kierrätysmateriaaleista!

Lovely sockplocks and needlesizers from Liina! 
They are 100% recycledmaterials, so even more 
points about that!

Kuten yllä taisi jo tulla ilmi, lähdemme huomenna miehen ja koiran kanssa kahdeksi viikoksi mökillemme suomenlahdella olevaan saareen! Ihanaa, ei kiirettä, (toivonmukaan) hyvää säätä, pientä remontoimista, grillailua, neulomista ja juhannuksen viettoa! Voiko ihminen enempää toivoa..:) Pääsen kyllä miehen lelujen avulla nettiin, mutta tuskin jaksan kuitenkaan blogia päivittää mitenkään erityisemmin. Palataan linjoille kuun lopussa, hyvää ja aurinkoista juhannusta kaikille lukijoilleni!

As I mentioned above, I, DH and our lovely dog are going to our summercabin tomorrow. It´s on an island at the sea, so I´m expecting to relax, (hopefully) enjoy sunny weather, some carpenterwork around the place, lot´s of knitting, barbequeing, and enjoying the midsummers celebration! What more can a girl wish! I´ll be able to get online, so I promise to post at least something, so nobody at Hogwarts get´s worried about me. Sunny weathers to all my readers!
