The lake has returned. Once again there is the lullaby of waves at nights ... and in the mornings, before I get up I can listen for a while for the sound to hear what kind of a day is ahead of me. As a bonus feature the sounds of the birds echo loudly from the surface because the forest is naked and does not soften the noises. Not to talk about the light... The magic of spring in the arctic.
Even though it seems quite bare and cold in the pictures, if you bend down close to the ground, there are spots of bright and new and fresh greens. (We have cleaned the summer kitchen and have already used it a couple of times.)
But now I have to show you my new favorite knit...
I love it, it must be the best thing I have made myself for a long time. You can pull it down so that it covers just your shoulders, or further up, and then it hugs your neck. In wintertime it fits beautifully inside a coat and while puttering around the house when you feel cold, you can even pull if further down to keep it around your waist - almost like a mini skirt.
It is the best thing ever, but ... the drawback was that it was quite a boring thing to do, 200 grams of sock yarn is a lot to knit. Then again, boring is good at times, when in need of something easy and portable - this is the excuse I am using as I am thinking that I need a new one, or maybe even two.
Wool with you,
