Scouts have more fun

You know, I have just the greatest life ever. I have so much great things to do, I'm part of a fabulous scouting community, have a great home, a nice joy, great co-workers and fabulous yarn around me. I'm just a little bit way too busy from time to time. I hardly get any knitting done. I do have some things to show, though.


The rowcounter was given to me by Darcy as a thank you for some sock yarn I had send her. She needed just a couple of yards to finish a pair and I had some lying around. Isn't that the nicest thing?

The yarn was purchased at Storm op Zolder. It's BFL laceweight. I dyed it myself. Don't know what I'll make with it. Maybe a nice pattern from Victorian Lace today?

I also started a little project for myself. Legwarmers.

The was purchased on Etsy about a year ago. I think the dyer was named VieuxRouet. It's 100% merino, so it's not really washable. Didn't think it would be good for socks but legwarmers don't need to be washed very often (not as much as socks). The first one's allmost done! I did get a lot done last weekend when my S'nB had a day out. We had a nice High Tea on a little 'poldereiland' and knitted and knitted and knitted.

Gotta go again. Hope to be back soon or sooner at least

April's end

I must have had a finishing mood last week.


Started these months ago. They got delayed because they were and are destined to be put on my own two feet. Done at last on 2,25 mm needles, 60sts, a beautifull fit.

and then:


I found this pattern in a book I got at the supermarket 'Knuffels om the haken en te breien' and it really called to me. Simple and lovely. It actually ended up quite good. The seems are a bit sloppy, maybe, but who cares? I like it when people can see that I made something and perfect things can be bought in stores.

I also finished my grandmother's socks but didn't make a picture of them (yet). The colorway is really not my thing but hey, as long as my grandma likes it it's okay. See you soon. Internet is back on track again. New modem, new chances.
