Earlier today I saw another team arriving Nome. The webcam only updates every minute, so mostly the entire dogteam is not visible and disappears in the waiting crowd of people. This was the only team that was halfway to see. Think it is Matt Hayashida or Ray Redington coming in. Oh, how I wish I could be there live.... yesterday I saw Dee Dee Jonrowe's arrival! Nice weekend to all of you out in Bloglandia! We have beautiful sun here, but it was frosty last night and this morning...

* Thirties Hat and Nome *
I've always loved the hats that were popular in the 1930ties. So I thought about a pattern and had a try. Result is quite ok; I used a single skein of Horstia Island yarn in a pretty green that I still had. It was just right; had only about 30 cm left finally. The hat was felted lightly and only one time in the machine at 40°C. If I would do it again or even at 60°C this wool would crumble into a frotteelike texture and come out far too small. This way it has a nice soft tissue that holds nicely in hatshape. I still have to find a large mother-of-pearl button or a flower to add to one side as decoration!
