Not much on my "desk" today, because I'm not at home. We are visiting a boarding school my daughter will start at next school year. 

I've been doodling in the guestbook and I took my knitting with me. I hope to get the socks done before we return home, because I have papercraft projects waiting there. I have been inspired by the drawings on the Peony and Parakeet blog, that is why I've been doodling stuff on top of each other. The idea would be that colouring the image would make it start to make sense of the mess. I'm not going to have time to colour that, I'll have to retry in my art journal at home! So why am I showing you this? It's Wednesday, and that means that Julia at the Stamping Ground blog is hosting a worldwide desk hop with crafty desks. Check out her blog, but beware, this is quite addicting :)

Don't know how to links with my ipad, so here are the urls to the mentioned blogs:

  6. Hi Kristiina, I do hope the school visit goes well, and it's what you and your daughter are looking for. The doodling is amazing! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz#10 xxx

  7. A pair off coke before you get home? My word, I presume you are thousands of miles and many months of journeying from home? No? Oh, it's just me that would take a lifetime to make socks then... Hope the school is everything you want it to be .

  11. Hi Kristiina, You must be a fast knitter if you can knit a pair of socks on one visit! I love to knit socks myself because I love to wear them in the winter. There is no comparison with shop bought socks.
    Hope the school visit went well and that it is just what you (and your daughter) are looking for.
    Thanks for your visit to mine,
    Have a good week,

  12. Hope the school works out OK for your daughter. I went to boarding school and although I was homesick to start with, I ended up loving it, and still enjoy friendships formed during that time! Love the doodles in the guest book, and the knitting is a lovely colour.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
