Knitting again

I'm knitting and making patterns again. This is a low quality picture but gives you an idea of whats coming. It¨s a spin off my little lady summer hat pattern. The yarn is Svale and there is an inscription in runes. This will come as a pattern sometime soon. In this hat the inscription says the name of the reciver, but in the pattern it will be a copy of an old rune inscription that says:

liki munu lifa hnta

It can translate to:

long shall they (the runes) live and protect.

The inscription is from the Orrestad stone and is fron the later part of the viking aera. I have translated the runic letters to the older futhark, as it is the one most people know and I usually use. I hope you like it.
