Where it all is going to be okay

Hellooooo! It has been quiet up here this last week. We needed all our attention for our son and luckily it paid of. He is going back to school next week. I want to thank everyone who took the time to comment on my last post. Every comment gave us a great feeling of support and we really appreciate it.

In the meantime I’ve been working on the green version of the Sissinghurst Garden Cowl.


Again I used an effect yarn as the main colour, but this time the contrasting colour is a solid. In real it is a bit more yellow-green than the picture shows.


The effect of using different colours is incredible.


Last night I promised myself to keep awake until the pattern was finished. Especially the knitting-chart with the design was quite a challenge, but it’s done now. The pattern is available in my shop.


I will leave you for now with a picture of the desert our youngest son made last night. He made a meringue and  added some cream and fruit. It was absolutely delicious.


His goal is to make all the recipes in one of Jamie Olivers cookbooks. The start of this project of his is absolutely very promising!


Groetjes, Dorien

Wat fijn Dorien dat je zoon weer naar school kan. Een hele zorg minder.
Wat heb je weer een mooie sjaal gebreid. Ik vind die kleuren wel wat hebben.
En dat toetje ziet er heerlijk uit.

Fijn weekend,

Dear Dorien, I'm so happy to hear that your son is at school and your days will get a regular rythm again!
Your new cowl is beautiful even the darker is my favourite!
Wow, that dessert I want too!
