Månedsberetning

Ja, det er noen uker siden jeg har skrevet. Så..,hva er grunnen til det??

1) Jeg har flytta på gård!!! Og jeg har brukt 5 dager på å finne de rette innstillingene på trådløsnettet.

2) Jeg har flytta på gård!!! (jeg må bare presisere, det er SÅ fint her!) På fredag ettermiddag kom Pappa i sin snasne nye bobil og vi starta lastinga. Nei, jeg har IKKE mange ting…tror jeg, men det tok tre turer å få flytta alt fra mitt 6m2 frimerke til det 12m2 “grønne rommet” i “Huset i skogen”.

På kvelden var vi på IKEA. Vi forlot paradiset i plastikk med et par småting til hybelen, men UTEN oppvaskkost til bobilen. Det er nemlig IKKE lov til å kjøpe to oppvaskkoster av hver sin farge på IKEA, de må ha SAMME farge! Du er herved advart.

Oppskrift på gardiner
Du trenger 1 stk sort fleecepledd til 39,- fra IKEA og en gammel kirsstang (begge deler kan sikkert erstattes med en andre alternativer)
Klipp huller jevnt fordel langs kanten på teppet. Træ den inn på stangen. Ferdig.

På lørdag var vi innom på Nidar. Så dro vi på Sparkjøp, der jeg kjøpte garn til månedens tema i Mai på NSF. (pluss litt til:)

3) Jeg har skrevet og levert mappeoppgave i tegnspråkteori. Den skal jeg ikke legge ut bilder av, for den er ikke så veldig spennende. Jeg mener….11 sider tegnspråkgrammatisk analyse….

4) Joda, jeg har strikka litt i april også. Jeg har faktisk strikka 4 1/2 bidrag til månedens tema april, som var overkroppen. Siden maksimum antall er 2, sliter jeg virkelig med valgets kvaler her. Bilder av disse kommer okkt.

Gleder meg til mai! Det blir nok mest kos på skolen, vi skal “bare” øve på TS-eksamen. Og jeg skal strikke et stort prosjekt som har med tegnspråk å gjøre til månedens tema, og det er koooosemåned på NSF!!!

Grace and LIGRETTO!

I’m just back from an amazing weekend get-away!

Siv is a friend of my friend, Elin. We’ve had contact on msn for a while, since we both are christian students in Trondheim, and a while ago she invited me to this get-away with a group of students. Friday, this beautiful, smiling girl met me in Mormors, and we sat talking for a little while before going to Betel, where we met more wonderful people. We got in our cars and after a long and bumpy trip, we finally arrived at Søvassli Leirsted.

After unpacking and having Mexican with rice we went to the mainbuilding for a meeting.
We started with worship and it was a real challenge. Then Cortney spoke about Gods grace, what it means and what it does in our lives. She said that “sometimes people say: Well, saturday is going to be my big night of revelation, but let it happen already tonight” and it SO did for me! God really changed me that night, showing me I’m am fully covered in His grace and not just loved, but completely accepted by Him (Gen 1:31)

After a pretty late night of LIGRETTO!, peanutbutter and american candy, we went to bed.
Breakfast EARLY saturday, and then meeting again. Brett spoke on Identity, and then Kelly thaught us Bibel Meditation. I’m not one of these deepstudying patience people, so it was a challenge, but I really got the message of God: I can do anything with God, who makes me strong (Phil 4:13) and I can go to Him always, without feeling pressure and fear (Eph 3:12)

At night we had worshiptime, and again I was straining, something was holding me back. Afterwards we shared communion and then we prayed for eachother. Kelly and Cortney prayed for my release in grace and praise, and afterwards the worship came so easy to me! I also shared my favorite hymn, Amazing Grace, with the gang (sorry for shouting, people). I have always loved this song, but I felt like God gae it new meaning this weekend!

It was another late night of LIGRETTO! ( I so LOVE that game!) and social time.

Sunday, breakfast wasn’t that early, and we were all a little tired. After breakfast we gathered and shared some testimonies of our experience this weekend: I shared what God have given me of grace and worship. After that Jessy spoke to us, I really enjoyed that!

Cortney, Brett, Jessica, Kelly, Siv, Linn, Heidi, Irene, Audun, Fredrik, Johnny og Thomàs: Thank you for a wonderful and graceful weekend! I really got soulfood to last a long time and friendships to last a lifetime! You are all so gifted and beautiful!

(and of course, I got a little knitting done;)

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That sav’d a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev’d;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ’d!

Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promis’d good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call’d me here below,
Will be forever mine.

John New­ton, Ol­ney Hymns (Lon­don: W. Ol­i­ver, 1779)

Garnkurven vandrer på minnenes sti

Idag har jeg strikket dette skjerfet, inspirert av konkurransen i Burning the stash-gruppa på Ravelry –sum up your stash in one project

Jeg brukte rester av ferdige prosjekter, og det var så kjekt å gjennoppleve disse; sokker til venner og familie, kjolen og snorene, dobbeltstrikkede votter, dominosjalet, Valentinluen, Basicluen

I tillegg er blomstene av garnet fra “Holy scarf” og settet i naturgarn. Egentlig skulle jeg lage et sjal av slike blomster, men tålmodigheten rakk bare til de to *rødme*

Today I knit this scarf, inspired by the contest in the Burning the stash-group at Ravelry -sum up your stash in one project.

I used scraps from finished projects, and it was so nice to relive these: socks for friends and family, the dress, doubleknitted mittens, dominoshaw, Valentinehat, Basic hat.
In addition the flowers were knit from the yarn in the natureyarn set and the “Holy scarf”. Actually, I was going to make a shawl out of flowers like these, but my patience only lasted for these two.

I have an oversight of what yarn and what projects is in the scarf. 12 yarns and 16 projects.
