So again, you have inspired me. I have been knitting hats. I think I have made at least 30 since the covid-19 started. Time to move on to a new challenge. I will keep you posted on my progress.
Congrats on completing the knitting project! I would have nowhere near the patience to do something thst detailed. I'd have given up and refused to try and pick it back up.
Well done with the vest!! It looks wonderfully cozy for winter. <3
@DrifaI'm not that good with hats, but then I sometimes knit lots of socks. :D And a random bigger project like this vest.
@Beowulf I suspect that the fairy in charge of those flowers by the barn is my friend's mum. As for the knitting, I find detailed stuff fun and am bored with anything that doesn't challenge me.
@Taethowen Cables are not really difficult, they just require attention to detail and quite a bit of patience. If I didn't work too much, I'd probably knit more...
@Skwovet Aaaach, I miss my sunrises. It's been so grey and dark, and I haven't seen the sun for weeks. Suppose just have to wait...
Also, as a non-knitter, cables are intimidating, lol! But I'm glad you find them to be not-difficult. They look great on your vest.
Roads always excite the wannabe philosopher in me. I can't quite put my finger on why they fascinate me but I'm always entranced by them. The lighting (especially on the second photo) creates an air of mystery and and metamorphosis. Where is the road going? Who is on the road? Where was the road been? Why am I on this road now? I love all these questions.
These are beautiful shots!
How are those sunrises these days? Still quite grey?
However, winter is here again for a bit, and I've tried to capture it.
One of the neibhouring houses has a man who is an excellent gardener with lots of creativity: I have seen him take such care working with the bushes and flowers, and now he had put up these for the holiday season (photo taken before snow - now only faces are left without other decorations)!
Visited mum... it was scary to drive on a gravel road covered in snow and ice, but it was worth it. If the road gets more icy than this, I won't attempt going there though...
Also, managed to fish out my phone to take a couple of pics on my late evening runs through the streets:
Here is how the lake looks under a blanket of snow, the pic taken yesterday; and this morning there were many guys sitting on ice and fishing.
Later edit: well, I did go out and enjoyed skiing so much that now my legs and shoulders are sore, somehow it ended up being almost 12 km... No pics though. I was too busy skiing.
As the evenings become longer, I have been able to catch the amazing sunset views when getting to the sea in time, though as soon as the sun is gone it gets so cold that I have to hurry back home as fast as I can.
Also tried to capture the sight of a ferry leaving the port, but the phone didn't want to cooperate - zooming in only resulted in a grainy and foggy pic.
A conference of crows by the sea, apparently...
Waves at sunset
One evening was not very successful in terms of sunsets: the clouds rolled in, it was very cold and windy.
And a sunrise (now they are often too early for me)
These are all gorgeous, but the second shot you've shared here is so striking. The bright colors in the sky, the rolling waves... Beautiful! I hope you continue trying different angles and points of focus and sharing the results with us here, Pele.
The spring has come, and the flowers are blooming.
Though one day suddenly there was a flurry of snow.
And while out running, I might have played with a dilemma if I should finish my run in a few minutes or sit down and wait for a bus (arriving after many hours).
I don't know if this was intentional or not, but either way I think you did fantastic with these photos!
@Afird Splitax Well, more sky though with the lake this time, not sea. And flowers.
@Yávië Sometimes there is still snow! *blinks* And I would definitely attempt putting such a puzzle together!
And flowers; in fact there was a whole carpet of them, but the pics didn't turn out that well.
The snowy roads are very familiar to me, even if they aren't where I love I understand how they can be scary especially when they are not the normal. I terrorized my city dwelling friends more than once going for drives on roads that as they put it 'the Gods abandoned after the second snow fall' in a compact car. We're still getting snow here occassionally where I live (woke up this morning to an inch and a half of snow everywhere) so seeing flowers is lovely since atm only place I'm seeing flowers is in a greenhouse.
It looks like spring has arrived for you! I hope you’re enjoying time outdoors when you’re not working!
