well hello there, how was your week? I had a little bit of an off week, not feeling totally well and definitely not feeling a lot of energy. probably the rain didn't help to fix that. although the weekend was mostly bright and sunny, and therefore quite cheerful. great timing by the chimney sweeper too, who made our fireplace ready and oh what joy the fire and the warmth give. in front of it, I worked on the pattern for the fingerless gloves, and hope to upload a second pattern this Wednesday. 

I enjoyed playing with some patterns from the HEMA Breiboek and over the weekend I happily started a pattern from the colourful new Dutch crochet book Haken en Kleur, by my crochet friends Claire and Saskia, from the blogs Haken en Meer and Saar en Mien. more about that tomorrow!

wishing you a great week of Fall xo
