Happy Weekend

I realize it is getting silent on the blog again, these are the weeks where the publisher and I round up the final details before my book PUUR haken goes to print. it makes me happy we're almost there, but it scares me too. did I write the patterns out well? is it clear for you to understand? too much text or too little, are the diagrams clear enough, for this project shall we add this picture or may be that one… details are rushing through my mind night and day. one more week and the 2 month wait for the actual book will begin. honestly, I can not wait.

in the mean time we're enjoying beautiful warm and sunny days in The Netherlands, it almost feels like Toronto Summer. which equals perfect to me, haha. flower season is in full bloom and currently peonies and hydrangeas are everywhere to my eyes liking. a little knitting, a granny square a week with the Simply Crochet app. and a latte here and there, is how I roll these weeks. 

I am getting excited for a weekend in Dublin with my love, and paying a visit to the very promising yarn shop This is Knit. I hope to get my hands on some local tweeds, I'll keep you posted!

in the mean time, have you clicked through to Sandra's new Crochet Corner? I can tell you, it is all sorts of fabulous. very detailed stitch explanations for beginners, links to patterns, beautiful photography as usual at her blog. definitely worth a visit!

have a lovely weekend
