I like this arrangement.
I have been watching a lot of snooker while knitting these. The socks are, of course, again, for the new babies born this year, blue and white in celebration of our 100 years of independence. If you really want to know, yes, I have been counting and this lot makes my list 45 pairs long. The darker blue is the one from my sister, and I'm going to knit as least all of that yarn for this project.
A friend is going to have a grandchild any day now, so I knitted a tiny hat in the softest merino wool.
Suddenly we had some new snow. There was just plain ice everywhere before this, and pedestrian accidents happened. With the snow, it was the cars' turn.
Anyway, I like the clean look the snow brought, and now with the sun out again, there is so much light. - I bought this green ball at the Christmas market of the Malmgård estate over two months ago, and it is still looking fresh.
The birds have finally come back. Their food supply in the nature must have been fine with so little snow, but now they seem to need our help after all. Here is the first goldfinch in six years visiting us:
Even the bullfinches have been a rare sight, but now they are back, the Mr on the left and Mrs on the right.
Other projects have taken up my time, but I managed to finish three more blocks for the Splendid Sampler:
The pumpkin is one of the bonus blocks.
Fleur de Lei is number 98
and Four Corner Spinwheel is number 99. Now I have one block to pick from the ones I haven't done yet, and the number 100 which I have cut but not pieced yet.
