Vof vof vof!!! Hi my darlings, it’s me Nero here and I’m so happy to see you! After few rainy days, sun is again shining. The ground is still wet and after running in the garden I leave muddy paw prints here and there. Mostly I love to lie down in the ‘half shadow’ and watch my garden and keep my feet clean.
This is the rainbow I wanted to show you last time. We found this when had an evening walk in town. Unfortunately I was waiting at home, because I don’t walk calm and slowly enough to go to the busy city?!
When Teje bought this yarn she had a plan what to make, but when she began to make the first loops, she got an other idea …
You may think that this is going to be my crown! I would be very good-looking wearing so unique crown, but it’s something else …
It’s not going to be a bunting. But that looks so beautiful that who knows … we may knit an other one for bunting! Hmmm … what else that could be …
This was a quick project for two evenings, so it’s ready and finished and of course I shall show you what I can do with this …
I have lost so much fur during the summer so I need a collar/cowl to wear till I get my new winter fur! I think this fits great! Hanna wanted to try this also, but fortunately it’s too big for her so this is mine.
We are so exited with this yarn because it can make so many kind of funny and beautiful knittings.
Would you like to hear what I was doing under the olive tree ? …
I knew for a while that there she was. Sometimes running around in my garden and sometimes hiding under the car or in this olive tree … just over my head, because here is my guarding place!
And yesterday with Hanna we tried again to find her and there she was! Now I can prove that she is in the tree! Look carefully in the middle (a little bit left) – can you see her eye? It is a mouse …
So often Hanna was waiting next to the car looooong time to catch her … but always she was running and hiding too quickly. I’m sure that Hanna has in her family a hunting dog. She is very interested and also very good at hunting. And she can work with her nose much better than me. I’m half German and half Belgium Shephard so my work is to take care of the home and my people!
That was yesterday. The end of this story is that today we catched the mouse with Hanna. I don’t know if it was me or Hanna or the mouse was just so scared that she died. I think I might have stepped over her. We didn’t hurt her – not much anyway. I don’t mind the mouses running in the garden but I knew that this one had a plan to slip in to my home and eat my food. So that I can’t let happen and I just had to do something. I hope her cousins don’t have the same plan …
You see I take care of my home and garden. Sometimes I leave these funny decorations around. I think I want to show you still once my new rainbow … ooh … I totally forgot to tell you that the rainbow in Greek is ‘Ouranio toxo’!
Always I feel difficult to leave you so this time I just quickly say buy buy and send you lots of kisses and big warm furry hugs!!!
I’m really liking your rainbow bunting and it looks fantastic wrapped around Nero as well!! And my goodness.. I think I spotted the mouse eye with you. Guess it’s good you caught him before he caused too much trouble. Wishing you all an amazing day!
How smart you look in your scarf Nero. It will keep you so warm. I know what you mean about mice, they are very sweet outside but NOT when they come indoors. Our Billy is our guardian of the house as mice are not welcome in my kitchen either!! Nearly the weekend, have a wonderful one and send love to Teje,
Jane (and Billy) xx
A delightful post, please say thank you to Nero! I love the rainbow yarn sooo much (I can’t see the name of it though??) and the scarf you have created for your furry friend is very beautiful. Have a lovely weekend, Teje.
Nero – I love how your Teje is always having ideas. I wish I had ideas once in a while. But here is a little worry for me: with my horses, if I wrap them in blankets or rugs to keep them from being cold in these autumn nights, their winter hair does NOT grow in. It’s when they are cold that the hair grows in to protect them. So please do not wear your lovely shawl too much, because I do not wish for your hair not to grow in. You look beautiful, though.
Teje that bunting looks adorable on Nero!! You did such an amazing job!!! I remember I tried to learn to knit last October but soon I fell in love with sewing so I kinda left it behind!! On Saturday at Xeirotexnika with Chris we promised to each other that we are going to learn together to knit!!! I want so much to make myself a neck warmer!!! It’s getting too cold too soon, and I don’t have one!!!
Hope you have a very creative week!!
p.s. Teje thank you so much for your warm comment on my last post, it really made me smile from ear to ear!!!
