Knitting and crochet today. The knit piece is naturally dyed in chamomile , lac, madder and logwood. Bolder colors and bolder patterns. By Christmas Eve I had no knit items left so I knew it was time to get busy again. My “to do” list is long and ambitious, but I am looking forward to trying some new things. Long dark nights are perfect for staying in and knitting.
Wishing everyone a fabulous, relaxing and peaceful Christmas.
With all the Christmas craziness going on in the world at the moment, I decided that the best way to spend the day was a walk at Heritage Ranch (Red Deer, Alberta, Canada). Walking down a snowy path seemed much more appealing than wrestling with shoppers and being in traffic jams (I’m not a “shopper” in the best circumstances, so Christmas shopping really isn’t my “thing”.)
Some horses were being harnessed up for a sleigh ride.
The scenery was pretty in all directions. The grass was covered in a delicate frost which was just lovely, unfortunately I only had my phone with me for pictures and iphones are only average for macro photography.
Wintery lighting shone behind the evergreens, and at the end of our walk we were greeted by a cheerful snowman.
