A warm welcome new & old readers,
Flabbergasted, yes, that sort of describes my reaction this morning when I saw the visitor statistics of this little blog had exploded over the last day. The cause: an amazing - amazingly sweet - blog post of one of my crochet & blog heros, the very talented Vanessa from Coco Rose Dairies. So much kindness, it leaves me speechless... (And to think I'm such a complete amateur compared to her gorgeous work and beautifully written blog.) So from the bottom of my heart:
♦♦♦ Thank you Vanessa! ♦♦♦
It also made me realise it really is time for a new post...
However, it has been very busy around here. I don't get much crocheting done. (And I'm seriously behind visiting all your lovely blogs out there, but I will pop around to say hello soon!)
Although work-work takes up most of my time, I did manage over the last weeks to start (but not finish, nope) some new projects. Which have one thing in common: an unusual (as in: unusual for me) colour combination.
This is supposed to become a giant granny square throw with a vintage vibe... I'm struggling a bit with the colours because there so different from my usual palette. Mmm, we'll see how & if that works out. At least a big granny square is a guarantee for relaxing crocheting, perfect after a long & tiring day at work.
Then there's also this winter project (scarf, hat and mittens). Even more unusual colours, but I fell for the very soft yarn. (Which only came in these colours, haha.)
And the last wip: this potholder sample. It should become the first of a new range of potholders... (And okay, this is made with colours that are more customary for me.)
Sorry, the pics are not the best (made in a bit of a rush) - I'm slightly worried you will be disappointed about the quality after reading Coco Rose's sweet words. ;-)
♦♦♦ Thanks for dropping by & have a lovely day. ♦♦♦
