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!!! =)

ihania pipoja! En ole muuten koskaan aiemmin huomannut, että Jaredin pipossa on vielä pikkukukka keskellä. Ihana!

I have greatly enjoyed your blog ... and all of your adventures. I am moving to Italy this spring and am glad to know that there are knitters there. I will be at Aviano ... any chance you are near there?
Have a wonder filled New Year!
