thank you so much for all your creative ideas for the yarn challenge! you are such a wonderful group of people, I highly appreciate all your ideas and already feel bad I can't give you all a sample kit. more about this challenge later in the week.

last Friday we had a snow day. I had never heard of a snow day before, but it basically means that we got so much snow in such a short time that we had to stay home. snowed in. we had a lot of fun, 50 cm of snow is by far the most we have ever seen from our own house. the husband worked from home, Floyd loved it and we had a great and cozy day. I also shipped lots of yarn for beautiful projects last week, celebrated my birthday a little on Sunday and painted the walls of our new home white. yes, we are indeed moving again. very close though this time. it came all very sudden, but it totally feels like the right place for us at this moment in our lives. we are moving and painting, working and watching Floyd all at the same time. busy but good times. a more decent celebration of my birthday will probably happen in a few weeks, when we have moved and settled in.
