Ud over vanterne på billedet er jeg i gang med en hue af det samme garn, men da netop den strikkepose er forsvundet i juleforvirringen, har jeg ikke strikket så meget, og jeg har naturligvis heller ikke noget billede af den. Nytårsforsæt: ryd op!
The Danish name of these blog post have been knitting Tuesday, but as the Yarn along at Little Things always is Wednesday, it's time for a new name
MotherOwl has also been knitting a hat from the same yarn - yes there's more of it - but this knitting bag is lost in our cosy Christmas chaos. Pictures promised when it deigns to appear.
New Year's resolution: Organize all my stuff!
Turen i dag blev ikke så lang, for en af Ugleungerne fejlbedømte afstanden eller snublede og endte i åen i stedet for på den anden side af den. Vi fik dog hilst på et entepar og set en helt vidunderlig isblomst-lignende svamp.
The mittens already have been washed for the first time. We were in the woods yesterday gathering lichen, and all four mittens were filled with mud and mossy water when we returned home.
Today's trip to the woods was cut short as one of the Owlets misjudged the distance, or tripped and ended in the rivulet instead of on the opposite bank.
Nonetheless we met an old pair of ents and a most wonderful mushroomy branch.
And talking of Ents. Yes we have seen The Hobbit, we liked it very much, although we could not keep from wondering why so many small things have to be different from the book. When it is necessary for the flow or for scenic reasons it's fine, but when it does not mean a bit, why then change it?
Well the music alone is worth it. To hear the dwarves sing Far over the Misty Mountains Cold is an indescribable enjoyment. I've been humming, singing and playing it (on the piano from lack of a harp) ever since.
