The annual pilgrimage to the hand craft fair in Zwolle was last week. As has come to be expected, it maintained its reputation for being a crafter’s dream come true!
Upon entrance we stampeded our way directly to the ever popular, all time favourite; Bart & Francis. Not only to pore over their amazing selection of fibres, but I wanted to show off a project to them which I had made from their gorgeous yarn. (The details of which you will see in a coming post later this week!) Would you like to know more?
I have been putting off this post for over a fortnight now, and for no good reason I can see. I am just lacking the drive to post around here right at the moment. Better late than never though, and here are some of my New Years reflections.
We spent New Years Eve on the couch trying to keep the cats calm and the noise from the fireworks outside at bay. We were mostly successful! New Years Day we went on our annual walk around the park taking photos to document this year’s devastation.
So many ducks were in the park this year! I mean, I know that it has been a remarkably mild year again this year, but it still took me by surprise. Would you like to know more?
Over the weekend some friends and I went on a Dutch road trip to the Mid-Winter Wool Festival just outside of Groningen!
It was massive and fun! Would you like to know more?
I finally finished my fox stole!
Isn’t it wonderful?!? So I’ve moved on to a new circular shawl. Apparently all is not right with the world unless I’m working on a giant piece of lace. Would you like to know more?
So many things to show you all! I’ve been being productive and making the most of my time. But remember when I finished the epic Estonian stitch shawl? Yeah, here’s what it looks like on (and a good idea of just how huge it really is).
Attractive as all get out, when combined with jeans, and hiking boots, I know! Would you like to know more?
