When Tina came in after spending the night in her little house that has been furnished with fresh and clean hay for the winter she brought with her the scent of summer - she always points out that her perfume is called "Timotei" (Timothy-grass in English??). She is really the most good-scenting dog I have ever had or met. The first winter morning was spiced with a bit of summer. Let's hope the winter stays, although if it gets warmer and all this beauty is gone, it just means that I get to live it again, since the winter always comes up here.
The lake is frozen. There are frost leaves and flowers.
I know there is a shawl called Frost Flowers & Leaves designed by Eugen Beugler in "A gathering of Lace". I have some pastel blue in lace weight in my belongings. The red sweater is getting closer and closer to the finishing line (the knitting part only) and really it is time to start thinking about the next knit. That shawl would be perfect for a day like this. But the blue I have is very light, and the world is getting darker and darker and I'm a bit worried that light pastel blue would not feel appropriate when November comes. Frost Flowers and Leaves shawl has a lot of knitting to do and I know my color preferences follow the circle of nature and these few days with this light might not be enough to finish the shawl and somehow knitting that shawl in darker color would not feel right to me. (This does make sense to me...) I'm so glad the red sweater is soon done, because that intense red is getting disturbing.
PS. Thank you Ellen for giving advice to Joyce. I sincerely hope it helps. I wish I had more knowledge of this computer world. I know it is fascinating and one that can be as big a passion as knitting is. Sometimes, only in brief moments when knitting something big and tiring (like Katariina at times) I wonder, that when I get old, will I look back into my days and wonder why did I spend all my life with these tiny loops. But really I can't help it. I will have to follow my calling... the question this morning is, whether it be one lacy shawl or not. And one pastel blue.
