There is a truth amongst knitters that films with subtitles are not necessarily good partners to a knitting project. I thought I could get round this by knitting garter stitch. Seems I was wrong. The knitting was fine, but there was a lot of winding back to find out what was said. Either my Swedish is not as good as I thought it was, or I don't understand the Stockholm accent. Possibly a bit of both.
Have I mentioned that I'm going back to Sweden in August? Mostly to meet up with friends, but I've also found out that there's a theatre festival at the time, so I'm happy. That's after the trip to Slovenia/Croatia and before next year's trip to Iceland. There'll be more about that in some other entry.
Last weekend was Brownie Holiday - AKA 'how much can we keep the adults awake before they want to kill'. I swear there are parts of the world where this is considered torture. I was going to sew lots and lots of badges on to my camp blanket, but that never happened. We were all in bed far too early.
The most I managed were pictures of the houmous dip we had - fitting in beautifully with the animal theme which we had for the weekend:

What does your weekend bring you?
