Yarn along - Imagining Winter

While outside the sky is covering this part of the world with clouds as grey as the citys concrete and rain is filling the rivers to the brim, I am dreaming of snow and clear blue skies and fresh crispy air. As long as that is not happening I have started to create my own litte winter world:
While the last bits if christmas decorations are nicely tucked back into the cellar boxes, little Snowdrops are have been placed on sills and tables and snowflakes have started to cover the windows, at least from the inside. Inspiration for the snowflakes I got in a German magazin called "Landlust". Such a simple way to winter up, just drawn with a piece of curd soap and very easy to remove.

 And there is still that book with me at all times. "The Snow Child" Lori has been talking about a while ago when she returned from Alaska. I am taking extra long to finish this, because it fits my mood so well and I want to treasure the beauty I find on each page. Its been a while since I read a book as wonderful as this one. To not finish it too fast there is enough time for some baby (or acctually toddler) knits, some more free style babylegs and this tunic that I have wanted to make even before I knew I would get a girl. Just wondering when it will fit her but she will grow into it eventually I guess...

In the meantime I keep looking up to the sky hoping for that snow still, someone mentioned next weekend, oh my, how sweet that would be.

I am joing Ginny for Yarn Along today.


  1. Was fur ein schones Kliedschen - sorry, but no german letters in Poland!

  2. The Snow Child scheint gerade weit verbreitet zu sein bei Yarn Alongern. Klingt sehr schoen, ich muss es mir mal merken, bis es hier in die Buecherei kommt!
    Ach, und die tunic ist ja so suess! Hach, ich freu mich schon darauf, wenn dein Baby drin steckt - bestimmt noch viel suesser dann :)

  3. eine schöne Idee mit den Schneeflocken..und ja da ist sie die Sonne und die klare Eiseskälte..aber schön nicht? Hab gleich mal geprüft ob ich noch passende Wolle fürs Kleidchen hab..ich glaub ich fang gleich an;)
    alles Liebe!

  4. This is the cutest little tunic! I'd love to make one just like that for my niece, but since I only crochet I have to find a crochet pattern that is hopefully as adorable as this one! Alles Liebe, Simona

  5. i love that you are reading that book, and that you love it too. hi aaron, hi baby girl! i hope you are having snow soon dear gesche...
