But this morning she seems to be fine. This picture I took after I fed her with rye bread slices covered with liver paste. She seems to be smiling again...
I have been smiling lately too but not because of the rye bread, which by the way is very good...
I received a treasure box yesterday. Thank you Susanna!
Weather this cold is frightening but the timing for wool is perfect.
This Merino(my new love)/Kid Mohair 20% was also included.
Had to give it a test run... and it seems perfect to spin.
Besides burying myself in the wool I can plan future projects like
Pacific Northwest Shawl with Jaggerspun Zephyr, which is half Merino(again!) and half Tussah Silk in colorway Blueberry.
(I'm not sure from where all these items are but I'm certain that Jaggerspun Zephyr is from Acorn Street Shop.)
Or I can pick a project from here.
In this book are lovely socks that are on my to-do list in the near future.
The cold keeping me inside and kids at school I have had extra time at the computer. I know, this would be a perfect time to get into serious spring cleaning (closets and cabinets), the sun is going to bring out into the open all the dust and stains but instead of following the vacuum cleaner I followed other tracks and found this KAL. Love good old classics and am always on the lookout for inspiration. I thought this was for me...
The Olympics heat is building up! Have to be careful now so that the peak performance is reached the right time, so that there is no need to explain after the games how I did not reach my best behavior nor that I over did it. I'm told that mental training is extremely important. So at least once a day I'll take 15 minutes to picture myself putting the last stitch on the 16th of February and then triumphantly weave in the ends right on time. Does enyone know if I should already start taking extra carbohydrates? It doesn't include chocolate am afraid? Maybe I can use up all the calories collected during Christmas holidays. Does anyone know how much calories are burnt while speed knitting, not ordinary knitting?
I wonder if I'll throw myself to ground after reaching the finish line having given the last bit of everything of my body and soul or if I wave and bow in good health. I hope you can't find me sobbing and ripping...
And do I have a happy family in the background and with sincere heart can I thank them for helping and supporting me the whole way?
All my animals are females so far. I have been careful not shaking the world of the women by bringing a male into the crowd, but I think now might be the right time...
Jaywalkers are doing fine. I'll show them next time.
PS. I try to work on the pronunciation but I have to warn you: I'm not a real Finnish teacher.
PS. If you want to put me into the map, my location is a little bit north of Rovaniemi, which is a little town right at the Arctic Circle.
PS. (I don't seem to be able to quit today...) Thank you for all the comments. I have enjoyed them. And am happy about the ones that are in my native language... Maybe you could hide in the comments some Finnish words I have taught so that those learning this beautiful language could see them used...just a though...
