So far, I've been killed by a dwark. I don't know yet how to get past it.

I tried doing something with the snow to hide my body heat, but I can't find a command that will work. Taking the snow, burrowing into the snow, hiding in the snow, etc.

That was tense. I figured out how to get away from the dwark!

Great game but I am stuck. Is this the right place to ask for hints? I cannot get into the farmyard due to the dog. Also, I cannot buy beer with my gold coin and I am lacking a sieve. Thanks :)

It certainly is! See below.

[Reveal] Spoiler:
What happens here is a chaining puzzle. Go to the cottage south of the crossroads and ask Edwina where you can get a sieve. When you have done that you should be able to get into the farmyard. Once you have found Edwina's key, she will reward you.
