Saturday, January 23rd 2010, my little boy turned 18! It seems like yesterday when I first saw him and held him!!! I love you!
The girls in his class gave him a buch of yellow roses and a black G-string with a fuzzy duck on the front... =)

I made him a big pot of Chili and a huge chocolate cake and he dined with his best friends! He seemed happy when he came home at 3am... =)

A New Year...
Christmas was beautiful, wonderful. I can't remember the last time that I saw that much snow and we were fortunate enough to see the temperature rise above 0°C only once and very briefly, so the snow stayed white and everything looked SO gorgeous! But photos of all that later, and of our lovely trip to Tallinn as well...

I finished some little things... Ysolda Teague's Snapdragon tam in Rowan Pure wool DK:
                            Jared Flood's Laurel on Filatura di Crosa Zara Solid

Ruffles Scarf in Noro Silk Garden for my mother's friend Liisa,

And Ysolda Teague's Veyla gloves for which Aurora chose buttons from Stockmann.

These were all actually completed before returning here to Italy, and now I finished the Noro shawl that I had in my bag throughout the vacation, after finishing the ruffles scarf... It's done in Noro Silk Garden Sock and Kureyon sock, alternating the two:

I hope this year will be better than last year... or atleast easier, and I thank Ravelry for the great people that I have crossed paths with through it's pages! Mari, my life would be harder if you weren't there, and to the fun ladies I started to get to know at Ursula in Helsinki! Looking forward to my next vacation! (what's six months, huh?) And Suvi, you're coming to Ursula too, and Nina, we will meet!!! =)
