Snowy New Year

I had a wonderful white Christmas in Alaska. In fact, I'm still here. My daughter and her family have a sweet cabin in the woods of Hope, Alaska, population about 120, and it is there that we welcomed in the new year. Monty loves to visit because he can run and play with his little nephew, Duncan. Here is my brave husband taking the boys out for a bit of fresh air.

Monty and Duncan stand watch at the window and alert us to holiday visitors and that includes of course the local moose contingent. Seeing them in the window totally cracks us up. One little white poodle is cute enough, but two are a humorous site to behold!

I have been knitting away and hope to get some felting in before I leave in a week. I'll post pictures of my efforts and more of this beautiful landscape. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and wish for us all a peaceful, healthy, and joyful new year.


  1. I love your dog and Duncan too. I have also a boy with curlyhair, he is an Italian waterdog (lagotto romagnolo)
    Great place to be there in the cabin in Alaska.

    Dear regards from The Hague, The Netherlands,


  2. Looks like a beautiful place. And those doggies in the window are too much!

  3. Just found your blog...Perfect combo...Poodles and Felt! I'll be back.

  4. Arlene, those dogs are just too cute! It's a good thing Burt's holding them, because you'd never see them in all that snow! Have fun, and I'll look forward to seeing you when you return home.
