The big hook

A while ago I bought this chunky cotton string. Excess from the textile industry. And a big hook. Size 12mm to be more exact.  Going to be a doily rug. It is hard work. Little by little growing bigger.

The first snow

I love winter. On Thursday evening we got this winter's first snow. I just wanted to go out and make snow angels in the snow. Instead I took my camera out on Friday morning to take photos of our winter wonderland. 

Still some autumn leaves left. Was going to pick mushrooms this weekend, but not really possible now. Went for a long forest walk with the dogs instead. 
Have a wonderful Saturday!

Pink AND glitter

Normally I'm not the pink, glitter, girly kind. But at my last visit in the yarn shop I found this yarn. Pink AND glitter! How cute is that? I could not resist. So I bough one skein in pink and one in green. I've started a hat with the pink yarn. Not sure if I like it or not. Maybe it would be better as a cowl? We'll see. Might start all over with something else.

Oh and the name of the yarn is Silver Dream. Acrylic yarn. The soft kind not the kind that feels like plastic and have a sound when you crochet with it.

Halloween crafts

Sometimes I wish I lived in the US. Halloween is one of those times. Would love to decorate my house wit pumpkins, and eat pumpkin and have kids coming to us trick-or-treating. Oh well. Halloween is not as big here. To buy a pumpkin costs a fortune. Here are some Halloween crafts that I might do anyways. And we are actually having a Halloween party at my job so I might do some Halloween crafts with the kids. 

Links via Pinterest.

Will definitely do the shadow paper skulls, bats and owls with the kids to decorate for our Halloween party.

Australian bears

These guys took a while to finish. Eight bears on their way (hopefully already arrived) to Australia. I'm running out of the mustard colored yarn so there will not be many bears made in the same color.

Autumn is here. I' the worst blogger ever. But really I have too much to do. Studies, work, family and a business. I love it though and as soon as I can check of studies from my to do list I will have a hole lot of more time. 

I'm quite active at Twitter so follow me there if you want more updates from my life:

It's autumn. Love autumn with all its colors. This morning was magical. We had frost, sun and all the colors of autumn. Of course hard to capture in pics.
