We layed bluestone tiles, recently made a ceiling and now we are sanding and painting and sanding and painting and......... We are using only classic colors of Farrow & Ball. The kitchen will be in oak and the working tops and sink are in bluestone. It will be gorgeous, in the end........I can hardly wait to decorate the kitchen with my collection of bowls and pottery. This is only a small part of my collection :)
I had a lovely day off. I did all the cleaning in the morning and took some me-time in the afternoon to listen to some music, knit a little bit, read some magazines etc. It was one of those days that I don't mind the pouring rain and dark skies.
Happy knitting and enjoy your weekend!

This is my project bag and I am in desperate need of some little project bags to separate all my projects. This bag is quite big (the picture doesn't show) and it feels like some kind of black hole! It contains about 7 different projects, all my knitpick needles, a box of nicknacks and some books. Any suggestion for a nifty pattern for little projectbags that also looks nice?
Enjoy your day and happy knitting!

I almost finished my second Gail I showed earlier and started a new sock, the Twinkelberry but I'm still not sure about this pattern and the yarn or the combination yarn/pattern. I have about all the free patterns available on Ravelry but still can't seem to find my perfect pattern.
Only one more workingday left and then my weekend starts! Yoohoo!

In October my very best friend Wilma and me visited the ‘Handwerkbeurs’ (handicrafts fair) in Rotterdam. We loved it! We had enough time to catch up during our trip by train and did some knitting too. I met so many lovely people who are so devoted to their jobs (dying, spinning or just selling yarn). Even met some ravelry friends from abroad. My stash almost reaches ceiling but I’m happy with everyting I bought. I bought some handdyed mohair and already knitted 4 tams and 1 cowl. I felted the tams and they are so soft. I’m making 2 out of each color (a total of 6) so I can add some tams to my stash of birthday/Christmas presents.
I bought a little book about knitting toe up and started my first pair of toe up socks ever. Still feels strange...........
Some lovely Colinette sock yarn (you can never have to much sock yarn :D)
The most exquisite lace yarn (a blend of baby alpaca, cashmir and tussah silk. So soft! Bought by 'Storm op zolder' (Storm in the attic).
I also bought a new skein of Evilla lace yarn
Finished my Tesserae socks
And started another Gail for my sisters birthday which is on november the 18th so I what to do for the next two weeks.
I'm in a good mood because my weekend starts in about 3 hours and I'm longing for some me time!
Have a nice weekend and happy knitting!!!
