2016 week 16

What a beautiful weekend we had; quite some sunshine, lots of calm and fun. It was the last day of the four week sock knitting course I took at Wollekes, the local yarn shop. More about the finished sock and my opinion on sock knitting soon. There was a lot of behind-the-scenes crocheting for my new book, of which I am sharing some yummy yarn goodness in these pictures. The beautiful green yarn with matching buttons and my Spring coat is a total different story; when I am done with the book in a couple weeks I will give my coat a make-over with these new buttons and crochet a matching shawl. Looking at this picture my hands are getting so itchy again… a couple more weeks waiting should be doable.

This week I’ll blog about the sock knitting adventure, have you joined the sock knitting band wagon yet? This Sunday April 24 I will host a crochet workshop with the Vogelvluchtsjaal from my book Hollands Welgaren at Cross & Woods in The Hague. The pattern was adjusted to fit the beautiful Nurturing Fibres Supertwist Sock yarn. If you haven’t signed up yet, there’s a few spots left!

Have a lovely week and I hope to see you on Sunday!

  1. Sock knitting course. I need that!!! Now you can make all the beautiful socks in Heike’s book about socks. This should really be a challenge for me in 2016, just to knit SOMETHING. I so want to learn. Enjoy your upcoming week my lovely.

  2. Wat een heerlijke foto’s weer van allemaal verrukkelijke materialen. Nee sokken breien heb ik nog nooit gedaan. Ooit!…… Ooit ga ik het van mijn moeder leren.
    Fijne dag,
    liefs,
    Mirjam

  3. Goedemorgen!

    Ben je alweer met een nieuw boek bezig? Heb pas ‘Hollands Welgaren’ gekocht en vind het een geweldig boek!
