Still life with snakes.

Z's play is becoming more and more enchanting. I love stumbling upon these little scenarios. I think I'll start capturing the images, fill in the narrative and make them into a children's book. :-)

More images of everything on Flickr.

I think the Mowl could catch on!

That is indeed one cute penguin.

And this is further evidence of the truth of why it isn't safe to travel the rails...very BIG snakes.

I love it - mowl! Cute penguin and pretty knits!

I really do wonder what the kids are thinking sometimes when I run across their projects/games.

Haha, love the Mowl. Latley I've been trying to convince my SO that cowls/neckwarmers a good idea. He was eyeing a neckwarmer I finished recently (similar to your Warmy Neckerson)...not his colors, but I immediately offered to make him one.

I'd love to read a children's book written by you! I like saying Mowl as I scratch the air like a cat.

I cannot think of any word in English or Finnish that rhymes with penguin.

Capturing those "still lifes" (lives?) in a photo book is such a great idea. Ask him when he's older if he remembers what the heck the game was.

1) Mowl = genius.

2) I here-by name you Empress of Neck Warming Things.

That penguin is really cute. The colours of yarn you are using are really nice too.
