Getting used to work

As always after a (long) vacation I need some time to get used to work again. I think I am a pretty average woman LOL
So I took some time to knit and stitch after work and forgot to post a new blogpost.
That leaves me with a pair of finished socks.
Blue Socks Again.
My borders are reaching a length that doesn't fit on a picture. So I decided to make a little video to show all borders. I am not sure if I can put the video here, but I'll give it a try.

Summer is over, finished projects!

Tomorrow I start working again, summer vacation is over. The weather is adjusting to me, it seems. This week we had lots of rain and much less sun than we used to have since my vacation started. Oh well, that makes saying goodbye to lazy days a little easier ;)
I was able to realize a lot of plans this summer. My first NY quilt is finished! And so are a pair of socks and two shawls.
We also went away for a trip to Germany, I'll show some pictures at the end of this blogpost.
But first pictures of the finished quilt. This one is for youngest DD.
NY quilt number two had to wait a little bit, I think I'll pay attention to my bedquilt first.

Some socks and shawls were finished. Here are my blue socks. They caused some trouble, but I won!

And here is Anybody Out There? It was a fun knit, lots of nupps and lace knitting. A bit of a challenge, but not a too big challenge.

Today I finished My Pride and Joy. The original pattern is named Miss Elliot, by Paulina Popiolek. I love to knit a border like this and I started it on the first day of our trip to Rossbach, Germany.

So far my knitting and sewing. Our trip to Germany was lovely! We had sun, sun, sun and time to relax. The house we stayed in is a dream!
Here are some pictures. We went to some small towns in the neighborhood (Freudenberg, Abtei Marienstadt) and to some bigger cities (Koblenz, Köln and Bonn).
