Fresh New Year

This is a glimpse of the beginning of this new year for me. It is also my first Blog!! I decided to fill my day with only scrumptious things, as a way to form intentions around what the rest of my year will look and feel like.

So I of course began with pulling out from my yarn stash, the most delectable, colorful and pleasing yarn I could find. Happens to be a ball that I created from scratch, spun and dyed.

and so the lovely day began…

Lots of fresh snow in the Kootenays these days. I am inspired by the way the snow heaps hold so much stillness and peace, and how each water crystal is encoded with this deep stillness and who knows what other mysteries…

This crystal was in my friends window, glinting with the sunrays of day and I must have snapped 20 pictures of it, unable to resist its uniqueness,  devouring the tiny sparkling facets and forms. Little did I know what was awaiting me later in the day!

Crystal Ice Angels! My snowshoeing companion and I were in awe.

An entire Majestic Ice Fortress!!

The ice formations were so similar to the Laska Creek Quartz crystal in the window… so beautiful. So I finished with the explosive sunset knitting project, and started another one… Pictures will follow in next post…

I would love to hear how 2011 is starting off for you.

All the Best of the New Year to You All!!!
