Winter is definitely on its way; again we had frost last night and all was covered in white early this morning. Usually I feed the birds that come to my roofgarden year round, but I improve it now that it gets colder. I tried to take some photos of the sparrows hanging and picking in the millet, but they take off as soon as I get closer, so here's a pic of the sort of millet I feed and an artwise modified Sparrow. Further some matching green yarn from the Faroer Islands. You can find more colours in my blog www.northatlantic-wool.blogspot.com plus some more photos of the beautiful area! Enjoy!
Accidently I caught this snap of the first real snowfall on the Faroer Islands! Isn't it lovely?
And another wintergray single Tajarutit; quite a pretty piece of art to wear!!!
The dog needs a walkie, that's for sure. So I got up and hobbled around a bit in the bright sunshine we have today. It was frosty last night and that looked beautifil early this morning. Winter is definitely on it's way, but I also saw these flowers above, blooming like mad in the shrillest pink I have seen in a long time, directly by the pavement.
I have some more roving, unspun wool, that I don't need. Anybody intrested? It is gorgeous! Above is the softest and prettiest genuine Iceland wool you can think of. Natural silvergray colour. Felts real easy; I still have a few 100 grams left of it!
This is a pretty Merino from New Zealand with coloured cotton spots in it. Of this I also still have quite an amount!
Sunday is almost done - I am wishing you a lovely new week...be careful!
I blogged these nice goldfish paintings and the matching yarn already in my German blog yesterday. But as I suppose this to be real lovely and adorable Fall colours, I am posting them here today, too! Hope you will enjoy it!
Today is a special date: 10.10.10! Many weddings everywhere! I still have my winter bride cuffs for sale....
And I just finished a new pair; made of Icelandic Lett Lopi yarn in sage green heather. After knitting I washed them, they don't shrink, but become a sturdy soft and warm texture. I also embroidered roses. Can imagine this pair also on a bride in white in deepest winter. What about you?
We have fantastic weather right now and it is about to remain ....
Today on the market I saw several of these beautiful wreaths, genuine Hortensia - lovely!!! Further here are two samples of the nice Danish Wool; 96 extraordinary colours make me jump! Although jumping is not what I can do right now; again I am having pain in my right foot. Quite irritating tonite, will see the doc tomorrow. After walking with the dog for about an hour I am down with pain.....this can't be normal. Both my feet are swollen every evening anyway....urgh, I am getting old.....❀
