Lacey shawl

Started this shawl when we were in Italy in September (it's easy to crochet in the car and on the road)
But I didn't finish it until this weekend. I used up the yarn till the very last inch, so no wastage there.
It's very pretty, I love the colour (kind of a raspberry red) and it feels very soft and light but it's still warm because it's wool. (but NOT itchy like most wool products).

I received the pattern for free when I bought the yarn but it's also available on Ravelry

Vera the bear


After several monkeys I now made some bears. 
She's called Vera and the pattern is from the same lady who made the monkey pattern. 
Check out her website for more animals.

Her patterns are available on Ravelry in both Dutch and English

Happy Halloween

My own Halloween witch!

We only had our grand kids as trick-or-treaters, and Felix didn't even want to dress up or come out of the car.

Hopefully next year will be better, weather wise and more visitors.

Patterns are adapted from Barbie clothes at a Swedish website (no longer in service).
