These sheets of paper make me so happy! The cool, fun, pretty, elegant, colourful pattered paper at Papirgalleriet needs no further comments.

I have no idea why, but it has been impossible to upload photos around here. I´ve been trying for more than a week, and it still did not work. VERY annoying. My not-so-frequent posting is bad enough - rare posting with no photos is useless. So this is such a happy day - Blogger is back in photo-business! Here we go with some pretty paper goodies from Papirgalleriet in Oslo. If the photo uploading still works, there will be more patterns soon :o)

This is the start of my Rowan Fine Tweed project. It will be a sweater for me, based on a pattern ("Halla") by Marie Wallin
-only, I will totally change it ;0) It was the colours of the original sweater that caught my attention, so I just wanted to buy the patternbook and the yarn and get started. When it turned out the store did not have the sufficient amount of 4 of the 5 colours in stock I was actually not annoyed. It was more of an excuse to start some serious wool squeezing and creative colour juggling. I think I emptied all the Fine Tweed shelves six times before I finally - all sweaty and rosecheeked - managed to settle for the 16 x 25 g that came back home with me. My main alterations to the actual construction will be to knit in the round, and to make a ragland instead of inserted sleeves.
As for the photo; it is taken by using the toy camera effect which turned out to reproduce the colours of the wool quite accurately.

Finally a quick report from the land of big dreams, free wishes and high hopes! It has been more than a week since New Year and everyday life is really kicking in over here. That´s OK though - it will just take some adjusting of the habits and schedules that were established with no resistance during the holidays... I have only just started experimenting with my new camera - so far the results first and foremost illustrates my lack of consentration and stamina. I am too eager to get photos for the blog to be fumbling with the camera, reading the very detailed (and probably excellent) manual etc... So here we go - the final remnants of Christmas literally wiped out leaving me ready to dive into the new year with all its possibilities and adventures waiting :o)

JANUARY was the colourful start of 2011 - these are the sleeves of a cardie for Princess that was finished in March
FEBRUARY was freezing and this Arwetta Classic hat Arwetta Classic Hat was often worn
MARCH came with signs of spring and the story of The Magic dress the story of The Magic Dress
APRIL brought the longed for light back and provided enough guts to finish The Domino Baby Blanket
MAY made my fingers itch to get started on some new crochet project and I was unflinching when passing the local yarn shops. Digging deep in my stash and scraps I came up with this Fancy Granny which is by the way still not finished...
JUNE was a good month for self exposing as I participated in an art exhibition with my jewellery
JULY, AUGUST, SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER came and went with no blogging energy, but a few glimpses from this period can bee seen here
NOVEMBER was the turning point for the nearly dead FiberFeber blog
DECEMBER was a wonderful month with plenty of memorable moments and blog posts. What will 2012 bring? I wish the best for all of you and also for me: Peace of mind, good health, courage, love and friendship.
