it's the 25th of february




and I think I just saw a warning for
TORNADO'S
in our area
I cannot describe how strong the wind is right now and how very very scary it is
to be under all these tall trees
the wind is so loud
and so gusty
it's either high up in the trees
or swooping down and hitting the ground
with such force everything is being blown
hither and yon
it's crazy
and I don't like living in the woods
today


:{

this is the silly flag someone put up at the
place we call the beach on the lake

and this is a leaf stuck in the fence
;}

and there

are actual waves on the water

I'll have you know I was almost blown away taking these


but look at the sky

and those clouds south of us
so I don't mind risking life and limb
to show it all


and yes I did  housework
it's all lemony fresh

crystal clear


and bright as a peacocks tail

and
 I'll have you know..... it was hard to do it
not the work
but  having to ignore the fact

that I got an e-mail

from Sweden

with a video attached

from
Nilla

who made it for me to show me the stitch I told you about the other day
that I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to do


WELLLLLL
I can do it
and I can even say the chant
of course with an English accent
 "ta hank, lägga hank, sticka hank och maska".
and that means
lift a stitch
yarn over
knit a stitch

and I did and look what I have
:}

it is so soft and squishy
and so pretty
and
now that I know
so easy

it's called

 Snöstorps-knitting

and it comes from
Norway
and it's lovely





and she thinks so too!!

so for the rest of this afternoon
I'll be chanting
in a clean house
with the wind howling outside
dinner is already planned
so
I'll see you
soon

thank you
 Nilla
"tack så mycket!".

lift a stitch
yo
knit a stitch

lift a stitch
yo knit a stitch
:}

That Snöstorps-knitting looks lovely in that blue yarn. Well done! Your self control was impressive, getting the house cleaned first!.. Lovely help and encouragement from Nilla! Mia S

I'm very jealous of your lemony crystal-clear clean house. I've been too busy watching the trees sway in the wind. The knitting stitch is lovely. How nice of Nilla to help you. Have a great weekend. I enjoyed the photo tour.
