This is the landscape I could enjoy yesterday! It's been icy cold most of the week, and Wednesday night it started snowing. It kept snowing all through the night and we got this as a morning sight! It's still way below freezing so I hope it'll stay for a while! I know people don't like me for saying this, but it can stay like this all Winter! :D We have taken all needed measures for our car so we can safely drive it (well, what's safely, right?). I went to buy a pair of true Ugg-boots to keep my feet warm. I'm all set! :D
I also used some time yesterday to get some Christmas decorations up (sorry for the bad pictures but at this side of my house there is never enough light to take a picture without my flash) :
Of course there's still a lot of decoration to put up, might share more pictures later!
As for the knitting, there has been some finishing going on in the past weeks. First there's the 6th (and last) sweater of 2010 :
Pattern : Abalone by Beata Jezek
Yarn : Hedgehog fibres Silk/Merino singles
Needles : 4,5mm
Pattern : Peaks Island Hood by Ysolda Teague
Yarn : Textiles the la Marque Aspen (Wool/Mohair blend)
Pattern : Calorimetry by Kathryn Schoendorf
As you can see I used various yarns and needle sizes for these (visit my Ravelry page for more info). The blue one is for my sister to wear with her shawl. She wore it to work and her colleague asked one too. So did my mom, so I knitted 4 more for them to choose from. I'm sure the other 2 will get a new owner soon too.
That's it for now. I don't know yet when I'll be back. I have to concentrate on knitting Christmas socks now. It's not easy though as I'm really not in the mood to knit socks. But to keep up with tradition I have to keep on going. Maybe I'll be back with some sneaky knitting soon! :D
Hope you are all enjoying Winter and knitting warm woollies!
