This was fun ! I finally finished knitting my first fully functional pair of socks. Now I need to find a new project, but maybe I should finish up a UFO ( Un Finished Object ) cross stitch sampler first – More on that later.
My daughter Emilie (12) has been perfecting her doll knitting skills, and now makes mermaids and dolls with long hair and little shopping purses. I think they are just lovely, and she is becoming more and more confident in her knitting and designing.

The past week has been a bit special as we were treated to an extraordinary amount of snow ! There must be around 60-80 cm of snow in the garden and as I’m writing this I can see through the window that it is peacefully snowing again. I love snow, it gives the long dark winter months a spark of magic.
