What kind of a country – part II
Luckily not everything is so bad about Slovenia. There are also good things about living on the “Sunny side of the Alps”. One of those is definitely being so close to “civilised world”. This means that after 4 hours drive in the car you can be in Vienna, Munich or Venice. If you happen to live in Kamnik, like we do, you can cross the Austrian border in less than one hour and – voila! This is where 40 cm long circualr needles can be bought. And also some other interesting knitting stuff. Like this (let’s call it that way) yarn.
I couldn’t resist lovely colours and I already imagine a cardigan for Tamara embelished by these cute pom-pons. The ball weighs 200 gramms and there is 80 cm of the stuff on it.
Here’s a detail – it’s very soft on the touch…
The day was grey and chilly, but it reminded us on Norway, so that was good as well :)
We had a ‘picnic’ by a pond where two men were fishing and enjoyed the views of early Alpine autumn. On the way back home we realized that high peaks of “our” Alps (those we see when we step on the balcony) where covered with snow. Hope Tamara will like it as much as I do (snow, I mean).
