It really is high time for another blog entry! I don't know about you all, but hasn't February almost flown by?
First a little glimpse of something Crochet related:
|Crochet me a Rainbow!!!|
I find that seeing a whole rainbow of colours together like this always makes my heart happy!!!!
But first let me reveal my latest finished project:
My new cosy Alpaca Jumper Dress
Yes, I finished it late on Friday night and wore it the same night as we left for another quick weekend visit to England! I always wanted a supercosy baggy big jumper and Alpaca is absolutely the best for this! I used Drops Alpaca Boucle (which I had used before) and knitted double on large needles (9mm). I knitted it in the round, up to the armholes, then back and forth. I knitted both sleeves together (flat). At the end I had to add the collar, the cuffs and I also added a rib to the hem (as an afterthought).

As a travel project I decided to pack my Scheepjeswol Stone Washed yarn and hook up some granny squares! Here we were driving (in the rain) along the M1.

|My kind of fun: coffee and crochet|

|Granny Squares Galore!!!|
I'm thinking of making a new bag from my squares, but first I need to make a pile more!
Hobby Salon Exhibition in Antwerp 20.02.15
Before our travel, I spent the friday afternoon visiting the Hobbysalon (Craft Fair Exhibition) which was held in Antwerp this time. (I also wrote about the previous one in Hasselt where I went last Autumn).
Again, there were plenty of stands with supplies for all sorts of hobbies. Here are some photo impressions from the fair:
