Inspiration

Allegra,

I think choosing the colors is the most fun part in knitting. I just love to play around with the different color combinations and try out whatever. I used to knit everything in blue or gray shades but I have learned to add more colors to my range.

Here the latest finished works. As you see, most of the time the inspiration comes from the nature around me.

The spring is not quite yet here but I am looking forward to the  flowers on the fields and the richness of the colors.

I wish you a colorful week

At work

Allegra,

as you might know, Daniel and I work at a senior care center with 68 elderly people living there in need for care. We have about 85 people in staff and it was a month ago we had Noro-Virus at work. About a half of the inhabitants and half of the staff got infected.

The staff (those who were not ill) worked almost two weeks without a brake and really long hours in rather hard conditions wearing protecting clothing (it is hot to work wearing them!), having to obey strict hygienic rules and having loads of extra work.

But we won, after two weeks it was all over and we could get back to normal again

especially Anton and Oskar. I think they felt like being in paradise, meeting lots of other dogs, running around and playing together
