Hope you are all enjoying your summer so far?
Here in Belgium we have been having a heat wave, temperatures were over 30 degrees for most of the week. At one point the thermometer got as high as 41 degrees!!!
Luckily now the temperature has dropped a bit. I find this makes everything a bit easier, including doing crochet and knitting.
Yes, knitting!!! After completing my recent crochet top (read about it in my previous post), I thought I might start another... but some beautiful yarn crossed my plans! I tried to crochet with it, but then decided it was better suited for knitting. The yarn is called Vero by Lana Grossa and it's a mix of cotton (60) and silk (40). I love working with it!!!
A new summer jumper
I am using 7mm needles and it is growing fast. My design is.... I'm making it up as I go along.
First I used simple stripes, meanwhile a bit of fairisle has crept in! I got 3 main colours plus less yarn of the fourth colour (yellow).
Rusticlacesquare progress update
Whilst working on my jumper, I also try to crochet a rusticlacesquare when I can.
Here are some photos, yesterday I reached 35 squares. Each square is approx. 11cm.
Well, I hope this dose of colour has brightened your day?!!!
Do you use more colour now it's summer? What are you working on right now?
I leave you with some photos of the Grote Markt in Antwerp that I took only a few days ago in the heat. My second oldest daughter came to visit for a few days. She certainly picked a good time for her visit!
