From My Heart To Yours

2018-11-06 11.42.14 - CopyOh no, how time has gone by since my last post.

I kind of got side tracked by posting on Facebook. How could I, you may ask? Well it seems to be much easier to do that with my phone.

Yes, I know I can do blog-posts on the phone too. But it seem to be a little more tedious for someone like me that is not so computer oriented. LOL 2018-11-20 15.36.43 - Copy

 

 

 

So we all had the Fall season come and go… see some of my pictures from the fall.

Well guess what, we had minus 17 on November 22nd. A brisk walk through the local park that morning and again at night, so beautiful.

Rikki Hat For The Next Snowfall…not

file-2017-02-23-11-05-58-amSnow falling only less then 10 days ago…

Walking in the winter wonderland with so much snow on the trees shaking the snow off them as I stood underneath…

making snow-angels  in the snow…

yes just like a kid…. So much fun.

So good for the mind.

Loved every moment of it.

Ok all this made me knit this Rikki hat as my hat kept on moving over my eyes having fun in the snow….So with one skein of DK weight yarn and a circular needles of I went. Knit up very fast. So happy with this on….only all the snow is gone now…

file-2017-02-23-11-20-09-amSchneefall erst vor 10 Tagen … Ein wirkliches  Winter-Wunderland mit so viel Schnee auf den Bäumen. Der  Schnee von den Bäumen schüttelt, als ich darunter stand … Schnee-Engel im Schnee machen … ja wie ein Kind …. So viel Spaß! Das tut richtig gut!

Ok, das hat mich dazu gebracht, diesen Rikki-Muetze zu stricken, während mein Hut immer wieder über meine Augen ging und  Spaß im Schnee hatte …. Also mit einer Strang DK-Gewichtgarn und einer Rund- Nadeln ging es los. Strick sehr schnell. Toll wie diese Muetze sitzt nur haben wir keinen Schnee mehr …..

Squirrel – Winter Fun

img_9085A week ago we had the second snowfall of this winter-season. Perfect time to get my camera outside to see what we can capture.

Smile I thought it will just be snow, berries, branches, bushes and lanterns covered in snow. Well look again….

A Squirrel was busy munching on some berries. So cool how it hangs in the tree.

Me, still trying to figure out my camera and all the bells and whistles it has. Decided to set it at “Manual” setting this time and learn how to get the correct setting for what I want to see. Yes I know some could be better but good for now.img_9087-2

 

Vor einer Woche hatten wir den zweite Schneefall in diser  Winter-Saison.  Perfekte,  meine Kamera in Motion zu setzen. Mal sehen was wir so zu sehen bekommen durch die Linse.  Lächelnd dachte ich, es wird nur Schnee, Beeren ,Zweige, Sträucher und Lampen sein die im Schnee bedeckt sind. Doch schau her ….ein Eichhörnchen!  Ganz beschäftigt kaute es hängend am Baum einige Beeren. So cool, wie es da herum hängt.

Oh ja ich weiss,  bin immer noch am lernen. Meine Kamera hat so vieles dass ich noch nicht kann. Doch beschlossen ich diesmal nur on  “Manual” photos zu nehmen.  Die richtige Einstellung für dass was ich sehe und alles muss besonders bei Tieren schnell schnell gehne.  Ja, ich weiß, dass einige könnte besser sein, aber gut für jetzt.

Water Droplets

IMG_6411There is something magical hanging on the branch.

I just love when I see water droplets on branches.

Today they are hanging on all kinds of branches  in our backyard.

Ich finde es immer sehr schoen Wasser Tropfen an den Zweigen hängen zu sehen…

Heute gibt es viel davon in unserem Garten.

My Orange Shades of Gray

2015-02-28 08.25.59 Well  I can’t knit this cowl just in gray!

I had to go with some other colour to show you have easy and simple this one is to knit.

Same pattern as “My3 Shades Of Gray” but for this one I only cast on 160 stitches. It does go around my neck two times. Fantastic …love wearing it. The yarn is fun and still warm to wear, super easy and fast to knit up…a TV night night knit If you like.

Only used one skein of Sirdar Divine and a 5mm needle that is all….voila all done.2015-02-28 08.26.24
