Winter Wonderland!

Winter Wonderland 20/12/07

It feels so much like Winter and Christmas over here! We even had some light snow this morning! To bad it's not going to last much longer. But I have been enjoying it a lot!

Yesterday we had some flutter snow in the morning. Later I went out to take some pictures of a recent FO. And they turned out beautiful!

My creation

Pattern : Weddingshawl from Handwerken Zonder Grenzen (Dutch magazine)

Yarn : 100% mohair from my LYS

Needles : 4,5mm addi turbo

I don't remember when I started this, I knitted on and off for a while. My LYS lady kept asking when I would finish it as several of her costumers were knitting the same pattern or at least thinking about knitting it and wanted to see my shawl. So I finally finished it. Now my LYS has been closed due to a sick owner, so it'll stay with me a little longer!

I made no modifications to the pattern except for making it longer. I knit till I didn't want to knit it anymore! :D

Here's a close-up of the pattern :


The dogs also had a great time exploring the ice! Snow and ice are totally new for the pup. Mom is used to it by now!!

And today they discovered they can actually walk over the ice! Not the best thing, as the water was the natural "gate" around our property! :(

Your wedding shawl is very beautiful. I'm a bit nutty about green, love it. Your dogs look wonderful too. Don't they like to swim?
