Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

~ ♥ ~ Joy in Town ~ ♥ ~

Yesterday was perfect early winter weather with lots of sunshine, blue sky and crispy air. In town the tree was built up on market place to join us thru the festive season; a lovely, giant tree this year! Christmas Market will be held in the entire city for 3 days next weekend!
As you can see this lovely sunset already announced a chance in weather! Today it was quite opposite to yesterday; it was dark all day with spray rain. Not a joy to be outside....

Noro, Lopi and a survived storm!

The announced storm missed our area while everywhere in Germany winter arrived with his full might. We had stormwarning and extreme weather warnings, but nothing happend, I walked the dog and waited, but instead the sun came out and - remained. Though everywhere around it was different... some time ago I made this hat. You can survive the worsest storm with it; it is extremely warm. The top is Japanese Noro Yarm and the edge is
Icelandic Lett Lopi. Both are my fave yarns!
This one was made in 6 pieces out of Noro Silk Garden; looks like an onion and is warm, too!
Sold!




The castle here in town - we have bigger, similar buildings though. But is is beautiful and on an island. Once this area was Danish, the style is still visible...

~ Bark and Knit ~

Dentist horror again! It was necessary to have a broken root and tooth to be digged out! I can't speak much and there are several hammers in my head. Have to see the dentist regularly to have the wound rinsed...besides to this I had an interview at IKEA's. Was strange as I could not really talk, still it was relaxed and I handed over some papers. It is good working there, even though they don't pay much! Result will come not before next week though.

In the meantime I will keep on knitting and walking the dog and just try to survive this dental surgery, which is really making me feel quite exhausted! I made another pair mitts out of lambswool; like them...
Weather is also gloomy, very much like November: spray rain, windy and gray day and about +5°C.

This is the first video I load up to be in my blog! Hope it works....see cute Bosse and Leif Gizmo playing - enjoy! Y

~ Hiob ~ Evil Tidings ~

Today I got the sad news that my neighbour, a young lady of only 40 and with two small kids, had to go. Cancer was stronger then her! I feel really sorry - seems that bad news do not end this year! We all hoped that she would make it....
This little lad in the car cheered me up a bit; isn't he cute!??! Y
It is also a joy to watch the Canada Geese by the lake....they stay here over the winter!

~ ♥ ~ Dentist Horror ~ ♥ ~

Yes, it's time to get such perfect teeth again - just like this Piranha! It scares me to go to the dentist, but I have to. Not that I neglected my teeth, but it's time for renovations now! What a horror. Tomorrow is a new date and next week; in December I will be off, but January will be torture, definitely! When I have survived this I will have a pretty smile just like this fish...
I made a new pair mitts. Out of Horstia country Wool. They have a light calix shape, so they look quite girlish and elegant on the arm - like them!

Christmas is well on the way! Just found this pretty cones, easy made out of heavy paper rolled up and with lots of glimmer. Beautiful, eh?!!!

~*.*~ Toadstool *~.~*


Y These kind of mushrooms are a popular items for decoration overhere; specially in Fall.
So I made a pair of mitts/wristwarmers with toadstools. Aren't they cute?
Thanx so much to all who sent nice mails regarding my last post! I really treasure that and I am very thankful that you all think of me...this really helps to survive dark days.
Weekend was surprisingly relaxing and I felt quite happy again....can see a little light at the end of the tunnel now... Y

~ Nervous Breakdown ~

Y My Beautiful....
Leif Gizmo and Husky Lady Y

Last Wednesday I felt so down; I seldom do feel deeply depressed, but this day gave me a fine burned out syndrom. Too many sorrows in the passed months and I only now start to realize that I will never enter my beloved home in Norway again. Negotiations about renovations and all the defects with landlord came to a point of no return, further a death of cancer in the family, even though it was not close family, but still...and all the other troubles that piled up the last time, made me feel exhausted, down....I am looking forward to 2008 being done. This was definitely a very bad year!
Here are some pix from happy times in Norway.
But we do have some great friends here as well, like beautiful old Husky Lady who puts a smile on my face again...
To all outthere: enjoy your weekend - carpe diem!!!! Y

~.*.~ Pink Pulse ~.*.~

Ready! Order for these mitts is done! I am satisfied with the outcome! Made out of Lambswool, knit and full. They will travel to Frankfurt....it is necessary to wear them by now - weather is not really friendly here. It has been gray and lousy all day. Only the forests still shine in bright colours; see my new header pic that I shot today!!!
