Originally I’m from the south of the Netherlands, from the beautiful town of Maastricht. And every year around this time, I wanted to go back for the Carnival. But I never could in over 20 years. Until this year. Finally!!! Together with J. We went to stay at my parents house and planned to see the big parade. So of course I took my camera, checked the battery. But, , sorry, no pictures. I can’t show you the beautiful, colourful costumes, the painted faces, the great attributes the people had with them.
Sunday morning I wanted to do the dishes for my parents. Of course I did. But they have this new faucet in the kitchen. And I was being very clumsy. Still don’t really know what happened, but I got a lot of very hot water over my wrist. It burned quite bad.
We did go to the parade, I just couldn’t make pictures, because I couldn’t hold the camera. Let’s just hope it won’t take me another twenty years to go back, so maybe next year (I certainly hope so).
This didn’t mean that when I got back home, I couldn’t do anything. As long as I can support my arm on a table it’s okay. So I finished my scarf.
It is so difficult to capture the richness of the colours with a camera. But in this pic you can see that there are so many shades from very light blue to purple, and even a little bit of fuchsia in it.
Never before I used yarn this thin, but I’m very happy that I took this challenge.
