Photography and Knits by Elise Sophie

norwegian flowers, books in a stack on the bedside table, cups of tea, films with lots of swearing, pincushions shaped as mushrooms, cats with big hearts, friends with many names and flavours, music with a lot of dimensions, knitting needles that mysteriously disappear, and yarn. lots of yarn.

quick hello

Soundtrack: Patti Smith – Going Under - Digitally Remastered, 1996

Hello again! I hope you've had a lovely summer, I have! I'm sorry I have completely neglected this blog, but I haven't been idle in the summer. I've been using my Pentax MX a lot in the summer, taking some pictures at home in Norway as well as a whole lot from a lovely wedding I was invited to. I will be developing a bunch of them any day now, so stay tuned.

My red geranium just started to blossom over again when I returned to Edinburgh. There's just something about a red geranium on the window sill... don't you agree?

I cast on a little project to get rid of my impulse-yarn. I'm not normally an impulse-yarn-buyer (only if I see something extraordinarily nice that I simply have to have in my stash, which, to be fair, happens from time to time) and I've been experiencing big trouble finding suitable projects for this Fingering/4ply yarn. It's 100% merino, but feels rather like cotton, and I'm not a huge fan. It's in a lovely shade, though, so I'll persevere. I've got a little cardigan on the needles, in the same yarn, which has knit up beautifully, so maybe it's just me being a little yarn blind at the moment?

What have you been up to in the summer? Would love to hear how you've been!

The least strained and most natural ways of the soul are the most beautiful; the best occupations are the least forced.
