And did you know there are so many wonderful woolly creatures in the Alps? I was expecting the cows, horses and sheep, but during a hike today we’ve met plenty of lamas, alpacas, donkeys and even reindeer!
I haven’t gotten a lot of knitting done yet, although that spot on the rocking chair in front of our cabin is absolutely perfect for it. There are supposed to be some rainy days coming up, so we’re trying to get in as much outdoor activities as we can right now. And then when the rain comes we can get cozy in the cabin and I’ll knit a bit more. Nonetheless my New Girl skirt has seen good progress since I cast on. I just started the bottom rim of the skirt, which is done in daisy stitch. Once I’m finished with that I ‘just’ have to knit the pockets, weave in the elastic band and weave in all ends and voila, I’ll have a skirt. Although I’m still a bit dubious about the colour choice (somehow it screams sports team colours at me) I cannot wait to see the end result.
