What kind of a country – part II

27/09/2008

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 :)

Path to the water

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).

    That’s the spirit! *^v^*
    Lucky you, you live so close to the border, I have a long way from Warsaw to Germany, for example, where I could buy needles and yarn.

    Have been reading your blog for a while now and have enjoyed it thoroughly. The photos from the pond are so beautiful that I just have to comment. The Path to the water is perfect and Tamara is just adorable. I’m fascinated how everything is still green despite the snow and the cold.

    Vunica je fantastična, jedva čekam gotov džemperić na maloj manekenki.

    The path to the water reminds me of Estonia. Quite typical view there, here haven’t met yet. I was driving back from Vienna October 5th and saw snowy mountaintops…
