Knitting

Hello my blogfriends first of all thank you so much
for all the Christmas wishes here in blogyland,
for all the wonderful handwriting card and for
the e-mail wishes.



I knitted a hat for my daughter

and fingerless mittens

Socks

and for me cable mittens knitted with leftover
yarn

unfortunably they are to short,because I have
not enough wool.But they are very cosy and warmth
my hand.

Happy New Year!!!

Hello my blogfriends,
the snow from yesterday is gone and now we have rain and the sky is grey.
Inside is it very dark.Candles are burning and give a nice light.
A perfect day to bake the last cookies for Christmas. I have
baked Vanillekipferl and Klosterkipferl.
The kitchen in the glasshouse was a gift to my birthday.
Is it not nice?the table is a musical clock .

Blessings, Regina
