Autumn comes with a cold.

Hello! Totally unexpected I didn’t write on this little blog of mine for over a week. This week had one major theme: having a cold. Not just a little one; no a BIG one. And not just me, but almost every one in the house. So, all week I’ve been running around with tissues and cups of tea, sleeping in between. Not quite the week we wanted!

It did give me time to work on my acorns and pumpkins.


I added leaves in 8 different colours and knitted them all together into another scarf.



It really gives me a very ‘autumny’ feeling. And even though it looks quite ‘heavy’ it is very light and a pleasure to wrap around your neck.

I plan to go back to my usual routine as soon as possible, because after a few months of very little crafting (for me that is!), I have a very large pile of plans and ideas.

I hope you are okay and thank you for visiting!

Groetjes, Dorien

Hi Dorien! Oh you have had a hard week. I hope you all are feeling better now!
Your new 'scarf-neclace' is so beautiful and looks really 'autumn'! I'm waiting very soon to be able to wear my 'flower-scarf' from you!

Wat mooi. En het is natuurlijk breiwerk! Sorry van de vorige keer.
Wat ben jij toch goed in het combineren van kleuren en figuren!

This scarf is wonderful! I can´t imagine how you created it. But I am still a knitting beginner ;-)
It´s my first visit at your blog and I come back!

viele Grüße

Hallo Dorien,
Ik heb net je website ontdekt via "Karin aan de Haak" en ik vind hem super kleurrijk en leuk om te lezen.

Vooral je bloemen en herfstsjaal gooien hoge ogen bij mij! Jammer dat ik niet kan breien, anders begon ik onmiddelijk aan zo'n exemplaar!

P.S.: Nog één ding vergeten te vragen ... Met welk garen heb je deze sjaal (en de bloemensjaal) gemaakt?
