Busy, busy busy
The socks for which I dyed the wool and of which I described the process in my last blog, are done. They really came out the same.
Now I'm spinning the silk hanky I used as a wipe up cloth when I was dyeing. I really like it!
A while ago I also wrote about my 'flying sauser socks': the yarn was wound with a double end, and had to be rewound on two balls before knitting. Purpose was, that two the same socks would be made from this. They are done now and are more or less the same.
Vorige week besteedden we de les aan het maken van een vrolijk paasei.
This morning was our last class of the lacemaking school. Time sure does fly! I'm going to miss this nice morniong, but in September we'll definitely go on again!
Last week we spent the morning making a happu Easter egg.
Before this the lace school made its annual schooltrip. A coach full of lacemakers went to the costume museum in Noordhorn and after that to the basketry museum in Noordwolde, both in the north of our country. We saw many beautiful things, heard a lot of interesting things and in the end of the day we made this. I looked the word 'mattenklopper' which we use for it up in the dictionary and didn't find it. Something like this was used to clean rugs in the past.
Another little piece of lace I made.
The weather was great this past week, so I was outside a lot. I hate to say that the ugly white plastic is stil on the tulips opposite our house. Through the plastic you can see they are flowering already. Soon the plastic will go, but no doubt so will the flowers...
Fortunately there was a lovely sunset this week: such beautiful colours. And suddenly the plastic mirrored these colours. It was almost beautiful, too!
