Rain…

I feel it, it’s coming

Rain, feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love’s coming down like
Rain, wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love’s coming down like rain

When your lips are burning mine
And you take the time to tell me how you feel
When you listen to my words
And I know you’ve heard, I know it’s real
Rain is what this thunder brings
For the first time I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I’m not
I’m gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Till I feel your

Rain, feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love’s coming down like
Rain, wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love’s coming down like rain

When you looked into my eyes
And you said goodbye could you see my tears
When I turned the other way
Did you hear me say
I’d wait for all the dark clouds bursting in a perfect sky
You promised me when you said goodbye
That you’d return when the storm was done
And now I’ll wait for the light, I’ll wait for the sun
Till I feel your

Rain, feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love’s coming down like
Rain, wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love’s coming down like rain

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say, never go away

Waiting is the hardest thing
[It’s strange I feel like I’ve known you before]
I tell myself that if I believe in you
[And I want to understand you]
In the dream of you
[More and more]
With all my heart and all my soul
[When I’m with you]
That by sheer force of will
[I feel like a magical child]
I will raise you from the ground
[Everything strange]
And without a sound you’ll appear
[Everything wild]
And surrender to me, to love

Rain is what the thunder brings
For the first time I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I’m not
I’m gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Till I feel your

Rain, I feel it, it’s coming
Your love’s coming down like
Rain, I feel it, it’s coming
Your love’s coming down like
Rain, feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love’s coming down like
Rain, wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love’s coming down like rain

Rain, I feel it, it’s coming
Your love’s coming down like
Rain, I feel it, it’s coming
Your love’s coming down like
Rain
[I’ll stand out on the mountaintop
And wait for you to call my name]

Sock Wars


Ok, I joined the sock wars 🙂 Perhaps idiotic, because I live in Sweden. I’m pretty fast at knitting socks, but… I live in Sweden. It takes at least 4 days to get anything to US… So – what happens, if I have sent my sock to kill my “victim”, but someone else have sent her sock to kill me at the same time? I have to wait to get the sock from my victim before I can sent it to my killer, and during that time someone else might have killed my killer, and SHE needs to send the sock to the next killer, and… Er…

It sounds really funny! 😀 And it will be nice to get a pair of socks 🙂

So, please join you too! Go to Yarn Monkey’s blog (http://yarn-monkey.blogspot.com/2006/07/are-you-ready-for-sock-wars-2006.html) and send her a message 🙂 You have about a month to join 🙂

The battleground will be the Sock Wars Forum 🙂 Now BE THERE!

P.S. It’s ok to practice a bit 😉
Two socks on one circular needle – toe-up
Two socks on one circular needle
Casting on for two socks on one circular needle
Straight-laced socks – two at once on one needle 🙂

Knitted handbags

What is it with these knitted designer bags?

Valentino, Ferragamo and Fendi have all made their version of the “knitted bag”. And the knitters all over the world are exited…

Black Dog Knits: Attitude

Er…? I don’t get it. I think these bags look all a bit… er… how to say it… self-made.


Well, sure, they are a little bit classier than “Interweave Knits’ “Give Me A Handbag
(I like this “Via Diagonale” Knitty pattern)

Projects…

This is what I am currently doing. The pink bag is the little unsuccessful effort of making the “French Marketbag“. On the right is the blue “White Lies Shapely Tank” – I’m going to make it with sleeves. It’s a bit bothersome job, because I have to multiply my main cotton yarn. I’m using a large cone of one-ply cotton, and I am using it 4-plied. And I don’t want to just use four yarn balls, so I’m spinning it into yarn. And I have to wash it so that the spin relaxes, so… it takes time. But I’m sure the top will be nice.
The multidirectional, orange thingy is “The Felted Bag with Mitered Squares“. It’s the current knit-a-long project. I am using the one-ply wool yarn I have plant dyed myself, three-plied, so that I get the colors to mix better. I don’t like the bamboo handles, so I’m knitting the handles. It’s going to be interesting to see how it works in felting… I’m considering giving the bag away in a swap, but I might want to give it to my mom instead, as a Yule present.

I really have been a bad girl with my swaps. My poor One Skein pal haven’t got more than one skein, and she should have got already two AND the final thingy… I’m going to send her something extra, as thanks for her patience with me.
And my Secret Pal is also going to get a BIG package this month… I hope at least that 10 days are enough to get the package to Australia…

I would actually like to be doing some Mabon crafts, but I don’t have time for that. Perhaps I need to draw down all the swaps for a while at least… *blush*
