danish bacon





it is not that i haven't been knitting. i just haven't been blogging. the thought of getting back to work has been occupying my thoughts and i have had luck. a job a bit similar to the nice job i left one and a half year ago, but in a different setting. i will be teaching asylum seekers danish and eventually english. it has a time limit this job but it doesn't matter. i start in january but i have actually already started. my first lesson was yesterday when i was teaching a group of men english. the difference between fifty and fifteen for instance. i enjoyed it a lot. and tomorrow i am going again.
i am knitting two christmas projects. but in the meantime i am knitting these little piggies and i hope to knit a whole basket full before christmas. they are going to be our prize for a little christmas competition that is tradition in denmark.
they are a varying size and the brainchild of danish blogger liselotte. even though you don't understand a word danish, liselotte's blogging skills are amazing. she whips off one project after the other. and the photography is soo great. go have a look.

Congratulations on the new job. Those piggies are adorable! And I sometimes can't hear the difference between 50 and 15 when the speaker isn't clear.

Congrats on your new job! I hope you settle in well. I love your little pigs, we could do with some of them here in Ireland at the moment with our bacon scare!

Love those piggies! And thanks for the link to such a pretty blog. Actually, sometimes I like just scrolling through beautifully photographed blogs and not reading. So this is just the thing! I love the heading on her blog, too!
