Second snow - this time for keeps

 
First of all, welcome to all readers who found me through Sarah Londons great blog, and The Selvage Blog Hope you'll stay around.

Second snowfall is here, this time I hope it's for keeps. December is just not the same without it.

Went out to catch some light and play. It was cold for tiny feet.

I wonder if the guy I saw the other day bicycling and smoking a cigarette now has put on spikes...

 
I'm so excited over the woolen scarf a dear colleague gave me recently, she knows what a scarfoholic I am. I's a proper Babushka shawl from the Soviet Union. I love the colours, and Arctic mum trend cast sees a big wave of Soviet nostalgia in the years ahead, making these shawls even more popular.

The shawl matches in a strange way one of my favourite bags. It must be from the 70s, cause it reminds me of my childhood.

 
My next knitting project: a gorgeous looking vest from Pickles.

I feel that I really need this vest, but this colour is a bit...interesting, shall we say. Guess that's what shopping online is all about.

Have a great week! I will try to hang up the Christmas calendar. Anyone else who's slightly panicking over Christmas to doos?

Thank you for the warm welcome, I believe I will stick around, thank you :)
The yarn has a lovely color! I can't wait to see your completed vest. And what a fabulous shawl.

Happy Winter!! I sometimes wish we had snow here more often to make us feel wintery......but usually we just get rain!

I hope the children continue to enjoy their outdoor play!

Thank you for the warm welcome! It does look cold where you are - take a peek at my blog there is something you could make to keep you warm!

I also found your site via Sarah's blog and what a wonderful welcome.
Love the scarf, the colours are beautiful. And as for the yarn, that is a colour I am craving at the moment - but I am in full-on summer mode

Aloha from sunny Hawaii! I can't even imagine saying goodbye to the sun for 2 months, but you seem to have a good handle on it! It got down to the 60s last nite here & I was glad I had a quilt to keep me warm!

Sharon S said...

Found your charming blog today & will put you in my favorites. No snow here yet. Love the shawl!

I have featured your blog on my blog today: www.selvageblog.blogspot.com.

I love the color of your new yarn. It reminds me of the color of the ocean in the Carribbean. I hope you'll show us the finished vest.

Your blog is a real treat! Keep up the good work.

Wow! I found your blog through a link at selvage blog. I grew up in Michigan in the States and I thought we had lots of snow! You have a very pretty blog. Thanks for sharing!

What a beautiful place, is it not fun to go traveling around the world while sitting in front of a computer!

cozy quilter said...

Your pictures are lovely and I will definately come back for a visit. The scenery where you live is spectacular. Come visit me at my blog...

Hi from Nebraska - came to your blog from Selvage Blog. It is below freezing here today and the wind is blowing but no snow right now.

Happy snowtime! Hello from New Hampshire, USA where we usually have a lot of snow by this time but have none this year! Bundle up and enjoy your winter.

Here I am a new convert also. One of my dreams is to see the northern lights, so interestingly enough here I am and I plan on staying to see what you come up with!
Blessings, Terisa
PS Where is your blogger follower button?

Jenny said...

Hi there, and greetings from someone down-under. I live in New Zealand and Monday was officially the first day of Summer. But... it's been raining all week.
What beautiful photos of your area, and the Northern Lights are stunning. Sometimes one can see the Southern Lights from the bottom of the South Island of New Zealand, something we haven't yet experienced.

Arctic Mum: said...

Wow, am stunned by all the comments from you - it´s so great! The follow button is now on the side. Will blog more in the weekend when I have the chance to catch some daylight, and can report from the blue hour.

Carol said...

So glad to be directed to your blog from the cold north! I will be visiting often to see your beautiful photos and read about your life in that area of the world. Here in the southern US, we got our first light snowfall this morning but no freeze yet. Still have green grass and flowers!

rattie4fun said...

Oh my, you do have an interesting blog. And where you live is so different from me. I think it's freezing when it is 60 degrees. Thanks for the nice welcome. I found you through selvageblog and I'll be back again. Stay warm!

What a lovely blog you have. I find it so interesting to read about people from around the world, and your world is greatly different from mine in Tucson, Arizona at the far tip of the US southwest.

I really like the color of the yarn for your new vest. I look forward to reading more about you. I do not have a blog myself but may have to start one. Karen

Coming from Selvage Blog, I'm stepping in your artic and strange world. Here in Cologne/Germany, snow is mostly rare, sometimes maybe in january or february but never in december - what a pity because of Christmas!
