Time has flown by and October is gone! Here in Belgium the 1st of November is a Public Holiday. Outside the sun is shining brightly and it is a glorious day!
I mentioned that I discovered to my delight that some of the flowers on our balcony have just started flowering! (Let's hope they will survive for a little bit longer!) I decided to take some photos to share with you all. There aren't that many flowers, but I love the little dots of colours!
My flowers in November - here they are!

Queen Anne's Lace Scarf - finished!!
I finished my first ever Queen Anne's Lace Scarf that I showed you in my previous post, it was completed the very next day.

Silver Shells Cowl
Do you ever find yourself starting one project and hurrying along so you can start the next one? It's often because you feel that you are bursting with ideas!
And one of the ideas that has been buzzing about in my head only recently was the Silver Shells Cowl, you can find the pattern here but more importantly, I first saw it on Anne's post here! (Plus: Ravelry link here!)
Funnily enough, I had previously saved this pattern to my favorites, but seeing Anne crocheting it and how lovely it looks on her pages in a different colour, tipped the scales in favour of trying out this pattern NOW!
So, yesterday afternoon I started this new WIP! Here are some photos:

|Shell Stitch Cowl versus knitted Neckwarmer made earlier this year|
|Interesting how the colour flecks stand out much more in the crochet version!|

I love this gorgeous soft pure Merino yarn and the colour flecks add interest! Observe how your preception of the colours change with the different backgrounds! It will be very versatile because it will look great with different colour clothing!
The knitted neckwarmer was made on circular needles earlier this year, in fact I made a number of them, which are currently for sale in my etsy shop - you will find the knitted neckwarmers here. They fit snuggly against the neck, but they are not itchy! And they definitely keep the chill out! The yarn (SMC Select Extra Soft Merino Color) is so pretty in all the different colour variations! I will have to add more items to my etsy shop soon! I've been enjoying blogging here about my makes so much that I haven't had much time for it lately!
Of course I am still working on my colourful South Bay Shawlette and the Harlequin Blanket! I try to work a bit on each project every day!
