It seems that summer has returned! Yesterday it was around 27 degrees as I went out in the afternoon to go to my knitting/crochet cafe! The weather was absolutely gorgeous!
Here a quick glimpse at my latest finished project - a quick version of the South Bay Shawlette using only one 100g skein of Fenna yarn (a true One Skein Project!).

(He was very pleased with his new scarf and hat set that I gave him as a present - see my previous post! Now my daughter has also requested a scarf for her upcoming birthday!!! Looks like I will be keeping busy!)
I took the camera with me, and quickly snapped this old building in Manchester before we disappeared into the Arndale Shopping Centre. Then I forgot to take many more pictures as we were pretty busy! I noticed later on the way back how many new buildings have sprung up in Manchester, so old buildings like this will soon be gone!

I already wore this to my Dutch class on Monday evening and was very happy with it. It looks colourful and pretty! It also kept me warm on my way home late that night when it got a bit chilly!
Below you can see my progress with the Harlequin Blanket, adding new colours with my own 'Rule of 3' - meaning that ideally the last 3 colours should go well together! We'll see how that works out! ;)

I leave you with a few photos I took yesterday between 5.30 and 7pm.
I will call them Postcards from Antwerp! I am thinking of showing you more of the places around me and I'm hoping that you might be interested? (I just have to remember to pack the camera together with the crochet project before I go out!!!)

How was your week so far? I feel that I still have many things to catch up on, from washing to catching up on my blog reading, not to mention 3 month's worth of craft/crochet magazines which I brought back with me from England!!!
Please leave me a comment! I love reading each and every one of them (and the magazines can wait after all!). I'm happy to see that more people started to follow my blog which is really kind of you, thanks for taking the time to read it! And don't be shy - write a quick hello! :)
