striped double scarf

I have finally gotten around to finishing, and giving the scarf I made for my brother last christmas!

It is a scarf knitted on the round for thickness, and with lots of colour in the design.
The large stripes are knitted like stranded knitting. The result is not fantastic, but it was only my second time trying stranded knitting. So I guess it is ok.
I did have trouble getting enough yarn, because I made it from my head - I didn't know how much yarn to get, and when I realised I wanted it to get longer, I couldn't get any of the yarn. Lesson learned ;)

Sometimes

Sometimes I just want to share the pain I am in
Sometimes I wish one of my legs was broken instead
Sometimes I want to give up
Sometimes I just want to throw with things
Sometimes I think I can't stand it any more
Sometimes I want to cry for help, but instead I try and forget it
Sometimes I think sleeping is my only way through it
Sometimes I forget to hope
--------------
Me depressed, nah, what are you talking about;)

finished projects

 I went for a trip at my parents, with my kitty last weekend.

And it was goood
Which is a rather rare thing for me to say, so please, do notice it!
Having been depressed and having social phobia for several years - I haven't been able to enjoy many things. I haven't enjoyed anything to tell you the truth...
But I sure did enjoy being at my parents (though me kitty did not so much enjoy herself, but that is another story)

I took the time while being down there to take some pictures of finished projects.
The below pictures shows my favorite projects - for myself.





Perfect aren't they?!

-------
I will now go out and sand down some walls in my kitchen!!
I totally got a kitchen soon by the way!
I am so excited!

The Kitty and me taking a nap
- and of course she has to lie on my legs, which of course makes it impossible for me to move..
all day long;)

oh and the "cat" you see in the background is my old,old teddybear.
Damn I feel a bit foolish that it is in the picture;)
Oh well.
Her name is Trille, after one of our first cats.
I got her while we lived in Thailand many years ago.
I remember at first I didn't notice her whiskers, until one day I did notice it, and cut them off!
Because I couldn't remember anything about cats having whiskers.. ..;)
(we did not have a cat when we lived in Thailand)
