Nero’s Christmas Calendar – day 11


Vof vof vof! Welcome to my Christmas Calendar and to 11th day! What I have for you today?

day 11

I found friend for ‘Violetta’! Violetta is my little friend who I met in my garden some time ago.

Violetta and her new friend Stephany did their best to sit outside but the wind almost …


… took Stephany! It was better to take my little friends inside …


They were so happy to find a flower scarf to snuggle …

Today it was icing – you know the little ice drops falling from the sky! The strong wind was freezing and Stephany has still snow flakes on her!

day 11

Moomins are happy with the snow! They are sking wearing knitted scarves and Mrs Moomin is knitting more! Look, she is skating with her hand bag – real lady!

Now it’s so cold that I want to knit leg warmers! I think my Finnish wool in natural colour will be perfect and I have a cable pattern in my mind. I made my warm cardigan with that  Novita’s yarn.

Nero and Hanna

Hey Nero, I think I just saw Stephany’s cousin running there! Should we ask her to join us?

Now Snowy Stephany and Flowery Violetta are sniffing our Christmas presents … I hope they don’t open anything yet!

Have you got any presents yet? I thought that this year I send my packets very early but at the end they left just two days ago. I hope Santa picks them in time!


Thanks for coming here today and for your lovely messages! Hmmm … what I was thinking to do now …
