Apart from watching football and knitting like a maniac, I was in Cuxhaven yesterday morning. We drove there to visit my grand-aunts and to go to a fleamarket. I didn't found much and totally forgot to take any pictures as I had planned.
Here's what I brought, three embroidery hoops and a cross stitch mag:

On our way back home(rather in a hurry cause it takes 2 hours from Cuxhaven to Hamburg, remember the football game!) we stopped by one of the many fish shops(it's a street block full of them and there are restaurants too). Here's what my dad and I got(can't understand my mum and bro don't like them, though that means more for dad and me ;-)):

And finally a knitting picture. This is the back of Ruby casted on friday late evening(others would probably call it night). The yarn is wonderfull to knit since it's a cotton acrylic mix. I had had some problems with 100% cotton lately especially if it's mercerized!
My gauge is slightly of so I casted on for a larger size and so far it goes well.

And these are my new wrist warmers! The yarn is so soft and cuddly it just screamed wrist hugger! I didn't follow any pattern here, but I'm sure there are already enough of these on the net, so I'm not going to post a pattern.(and yes, those really are my nails, not fake ones!)
