New one on the way!
A few Instagram shots of what's been going on during the past couple of weeks. 
I've been travelling a lot. 
And along the way, knitting a lot. 

I've been twice in Tampere, 
once in Turku and Pietarsaari, 
and for about an hour in Helsinki. (Worth mentioning, right?)
Hours and hours on train, plenty of time to knit..

..and just booked my next train tickets.


Last of winter?

This year Easter was what I call perfect winter.
Sunny days, mild temperatures, snow, skiing, ice road to the island..

During Easter I got a chance to try out a pair of new kind of skis. I LOVED them and decided that now was the time to invest on something to keep me on the move. The OAC KAR skis combine the best qualities of snowshoes, telemark skis and backcountry skis. These ones are handmade in Finland.

Mindblowing experience! Revolutionary!

You can read more about them here. Now I'm just sad that it looks like skiing conditions are soon coming to an end.
