My ear is fine again, thank you all for your kind words and wishes! I am sure it mainly healed because of your sympathies! I did some speed knitting and now my ears are well protected, the replacement hat is finished - as well as the trollish look.
It's a delight to go out again. Almost clear skies and beautiful sunlight. It's not all that bad to go to work, if this is the morning view.
Another view later in the day. The snowy montains on the other side of the bay (Mt. Esja), brrr.. cold! But makes me itching for skiing.
We only had about ten minutes soft hail today. Ha, laughable! Otherwise, it has been bright over the last days - and nights! Meaning, I could see northern lights last night.
I love them! They've been very vivid and I stood in the cold for ages to look at them. Most Icelanders cannot understand my excitement and rather watch TV ;-) (Well, more clever if you want to get knitting done...) But I don't get tired of them, even after years. Unfortunately my digital camera is too bad to capture them. So I'll just steal an image and link you to an 'Iceland excursions' page. So go there and feed your travel bug.
Knitting report: I won't finish the Amble socks for the SixSox KAL in time. My excuse: September is a day short. However, they are almost done and will not end up abandoned like so many other projects.
I couldn't resist to start the 'fish' (Rainforest Opal) and this yarn is so much fun! Pictures another time.
