Winter escape

Six days ago, I posted on my instagram the picture below with the comment:
Instagram versus reality: what I wish I was doing today. What I did instead: I answered emails for 3 hours, I fought a spammer attack on my website with my webmaster, I drove 45 mn instead of 5mn in the traffic to fetch some knitted related stuff, I updated the Attribute stocks on the website for 2 hours, I almost finished setting up a “new” (2 years old for me) pattern, almost but not quite, I drove one of my daughters who missed her bus, I haven´t knitted for 3 months, my studio is a mess 🙈😂😘⁠

Great evils require great remedies!

And little evils require little remedies: a few days later, I was off on a wimp to the North of Iceland where I spend a couple of restful and nourishing days with my friend Myriam.

So yes sometimes Instagram is just like reality!

Or is it?

Fortunately day 2 was a bit more quiet!

I even knitted! Not a new design but mending the Útivist sweater I had given Myriam in advance for her 50 years: now it has brand new wrists!

By the way, do you recognise the place?  It is where the Hiking and knitting under the Midnight sun is taking place! It doesn´t look quite the same in the winter and is perfect for mountain skying (that is if weather permits).
