White and Quite...

Hi and Happy Sunday to all!!!
We got snow last night and this morning, when we got up...all was so white and...soooo quite...
No noise at all around the house and was so nice!

It snowed all the day and trees, yards, roads, cars seemed to be covered by soft and white cotton! Today all was magic, I know that tomorrow probably will rain so, the snow will melt fast but it's perfect!
I'm sure that tomorrow I will not like the snow like today because I'll have to drive and go to work and the roads will be not so good and probably dirty so...I'll have those pics for remember myself how I feel today! :O)

Hi and Happy Sunday to all!!!
I've just finished to knit my new scarf and I love how it turns up!
I chose a grey wool, I just knit and purl so...a really easy one!

But...I would love to add a sweet touch so I made 2 hearts felt with some rhynestones and I sewed them on both endinds of the scarf...

I'll wear it this afternoon as it's a very sunny but very very cold day here...

Knitting a new scarf

yesterday I've had a very stressful day at work...
When I come home...I really needed a bit of relax...
So...after dinner and a long shower...I looked throught my yarns and my colorful knitting needles and I found this beautiful grey wool.
It's 100% merino wool, so soft and warm...

I weared my pijama, take my place on the couch near the lightfire and...started to knit a scarf for myself...
What a nice way to take a bit of relax at the end of a "black" day!
And soon...I'll have a new scarf to wear!!!!
In what way you love to realx at the end of the day?
I'd love to hear from you!!!
