Plotseling bedacht ik zojuist, dat ik de dingen, die ik de laatste tijd afgemaakt had, hier nog niet had laten zien. Dat moet dus nu even snel gebeuren.
Suddenly I realised, that I hadn't shown the things I finished these last few weeks. That, of course, has to changen here and now.
Here is my cardi in all its glory: done! After blocking it looked even better than I had dared to hope. In my grandmother's button box which I inherited years ago I found matching buttons that were exactly the right colour and fit.
Completely in the mood for Christmas I knit a snowman...
and a brave soldier.
Here are all colours I dyed with food colours until now (Wilton and Americolor) I already showed the top five, but now they ave been plied. The other seven are still singles and I span them recently. These little balls (30 grams each) really make me happy. I have to make up my mind: will I ply them on themselves again, like the top five, or will I ply the blues together, and the yellows?
Zomaar opeens was het gister een prachtige dag. We werden wakker en de zon scheen. Het uitzicht uit de badkamer was al prachtig:
Quite unexpectedly the weather was great yesterday. I loved the view from my bathroom window:
And from the livingroom window:
The part of the garden with our nut trees (walnuts, hazelnuts):
The somewhat hazy light was beautiful:
We wanted to see, if it was as beautiful somewhere else and decide to go for a walk in the 'Streekbos', a nature park nearby. Although I still have trouble walking ( all my muscles and joints hurt) it seemed pleasant in this weather. And people who know about these things have told me walking is very good for me.
We walked around the little lake
Whewn we got back we would drink coffee in this nice little restaurant.
One keeps making pictures
It was busy: a few more people liked the weather. In the boat a group of people got a rowing lesson.
Na onze wandeling bleek het weer zo mooi, dat we buiten koffie konden drinken. Er waren nog net twee stoelen vrij, verder zat het helemaal vol.
After our walk we could have our coffee outside. There were just two chairs for us. For the rest the place was full.
