After a good 6 months I figured it is about time for an update on what’s going on here in creJJtion land. Fall 2017 is here already.
Regarding my publications; the baby crochet book ‘9 Months to Crochet‘ got translated to Dutch, Danish and French. I am so happy to be able to share the baby project love in multiple languages now! The past 4 months I have been working on my new book Natuurlijk Haken; Nordic Style. It is the follow up on my first book Puur Haken, which got an official reprint in May too. I am excited to share this new book with you; it is all about crochet, though quite a bit different in lay out and style from the books I’ve done before. Actually I can’t wait to hear, read and see your reactions to it, and hope you will share what you are making. Natuurlijk Haken is available for pre-order in Dutch now, should be on the shelves by the end of October. From now on I will show some sneak peeks of it’s contents.
Other publication news, today the new issue of the Dutch Terdege magazine comes out, with my large throw pattern in it. This is the beginning of a new collaboration and pattern series I am doing with them, very exciting! You can follow them on Facebook for a regular update.
Now that my book is done and my belly is starting to grow – I am almost 7 months pregnant with a baby boy, we are so thankful and excited to welcome Annabel’s brother in November! – it is time for me to step back from work and cocoon with baby knits and crochet projects. I did a large clean up of my yarn stash, there’s the annual donation boxes already packed again, and I am getting to finish some long-term projects to clean up a bit more. There’s baby room prep including some paint work, and we are enjoying the beautiful Fall weather through Annabel’s eyes including endless acorn searches, puddle jumping and pumpkin soup.
I am happy to report life is good here in my corner of the world; if you like to see more snippets please follow me on Instagram, where I will share my crochet and knitting projects in the coming months again. Yesterday for example, I started and finished a shawl from this new book I am very excited about. A large blanket is in the making, and a cardigan. What’s on your hook and needles, how is the season treating you? I am curious to hear from you.
Talk soon, xo Maaike
