Fini les vacances....

Je pensais partir en Islande avec ce joli châle mais le hasard en a voulu autrement..
snif snif

On est allé en Ardèche, ca y ressemble un peu.......
On a fait un détour à Jaujac, c'est un très joli village....
On a aussi visité Moudeyres en Haute Loire et là j'ai cru que c'était le village des schtouphs je ne suis pas sortie du sac de maman, j'avais peur d'Azraël " le chat de Gargamel"
Les rideaux des maisons ont donnés des envies à maman
Nous avons pour terminer notre séjour trouvé un petit coin de paradis......
J'ai entendu dire qu'on allait y retourner...

Knitting in Borgafjörður Eystri

Henrietta and Smali went to Borgafjörður Eystri the other day: they saw a lovely little house and went to Storurð.


Théodora a une copine, et elles sont très complices.

Toujours prêtes à grimper dans les arbres
Mais il va falloir se dire au revoir car elle part dans les bras d'une petite fille.

Dog's story

Histoire de chien

Beautilful eyes and nice hair...
Des yeux de braise, le poil brillant...

Will Smali fall for her?
Smali va-t-il succomber?

Annis shawl for Dutch Theodóra

Dutch Theodóra is happy with her mini Annis shawl. Her Woman knitted one for her from some handspun yarn. Although spring has sprung in The Netherlands and the tulips are blooming, it can be a little bit cold in the garden. A warm shawl keeps the shoulders warm!

Un petit tour avec Smali

A little walk with Smali

Salut c'est Smali! Je suis allé à Virton le week-en dernier dans une chouette boutique de laine.
Hello it's Smali! last week-end I went to Belgium in a really great LYS!

Vous venez, on entre?

On est tous allés au café tricot du coin.
We all went to the knitcafe down the corner

Où on a retrouvé la maîtresse de la boutique de laine.

New friend

Meet my new best friend:

I found a web site for sheepdog names

My dog is Saegola (sea breeze).

Trip to California

My person and I went to see her parents (my grandparents?) last week. They have a lot of interesting plants in their yard:

Some have beautiful flowers:

They live near this park with a stream:

We like to go there for bird watching:

This one is a hawk (kite):

There were actually two of them:

Then us gals all went to a yarn show:

It's hard to show the full insanity of this place:

Ravie de vous rejoindre, même si pour l'instant je reste au chaud. Il faut avouer que je n'ai pas encore eu le temps de me tricoter une tenue un peu plus adaptée à la température extérieure...Jugez vous-même!

Rousse au yeux verts...un vieux rêve!
A bientôt pour une sortie à l'extérieur et la découverte du monde environnant

Dutch Theodóra in the snow

Look o look: we had some snow in the Netherlands last week and temperatures dropped down to a seldom felt -16'C! Dutch Theodóra desperately needed warmer clothes, so I finished her Lett Lopi sweater and knitted her a warm skirt. Still she doen's wear socks yet, but I found some wooden shoes for her to wear. No need to walk in the snow on bare feet. My intention was to knit her a Staphorst costume, that's the reason the skirt is a little shorter then in the pattern. Now I've changed my mind, because Dutch Theodóra is not a very Staphorst type of girl and I will probably rip the skirt back and knit her some warm pants instead.

I got to go to Anchorage last week. The best thing about Anchorage are the views of mountains all around. So my view is dominated by the hotel's other towers, but there are still mountains:

Even some alpenglow on them:

One day I got out to see the statue of Captain Cook:

Then there's the view of the frozen Cook Inlet:

So nice to get out into the sunlight!

On the way home we got a view of Denali, also known as Mt McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America:

I almost lost my hat in the airplane, but the nice man behind us found it. Yay!
