Tina will be back with her Finnish and she will try to answer the questions then. She is happy to have something to think about since the hunting season is over and the days are cold and dark and the nights even colder and darker and there really is not that much for a little dog to do.

When I took Katariina today to the photo shoot spot I was trying to think of something poetic to write about her, like there she stands by the strands of ultima thule... But I sort of feel wordless now since she took so much of my time and energy and concentration. Although I must admit that I'm more pleased with her than what I dared to think beforehand. And am happy that I pushed through those days of frustration and boredom.She has been on the needles since September 12th. Katariina is twined knit with 3 mm needles with z-plied wool from Firma Krokmaskan. The colors were numbers 230 and 205. The design is my own. The embroidery is influenced by an embroidery that can be found in "Embroidery" by Pepinpress (ISBN 90 5768 038 6). The wool for the embroidery is from Renaissance Dyeing.Somehow I hope that I won't be diving into another everlasting sweater but there are two colors that talk to me in Krokmaskan's color chart...But not just yet because there is a demand for lace now. Really, I have to knit a lace shawl next, I have been asked for.
