Moose, kelims and some such
An other beautiful winter´s day today. I went for a long walk in the woods today, making my way through the snow covered ground. Snow is such a wonderful thing, making the woods come alive before my very eyes, as I marveled at the various footprints I saw. Creatures great and small; moose, deer, foxes, rabbits and tiny woodland mice had left traces of their goings on in the snow.
Not just traces either, as I saw a large bird of prey (could it have been the one that was the end of Klara Klok?) and a couple of moose, that crossed my path. I am in awe of these magnificent creatures. Usually moose are harmless enough (unless you come across them in their mating season, or when they have young ones) and the two I saw today quickly made a run for it when they saw me (just as well, or I would have soon enough been the one on the run!)
Home again, safe and sound, I decided to bring down the kelim rug from the attic again. If you think you have seen these pictures before, you are not far wrong, as they look very much like the ones from last September. Back then the rug lasted about a day, but this time I think it is in for a longer run.
For one, since I started working on my last crochet project (that incorporates the "dreaded" orange) I kept seeing images of this very kelim in my head. Once it came down from the attic I could not help but notice how well the two of them work together. Also, kelims seem to be "in" again. Not that I really care about such things, but seeing I have such a treasure in my possession it kind of makes sense to let it "shine" again, don´t you think?
