Lacey shawl

Image
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

Image
After several monkeys I now made bears.  She's called Vera and the pattern is from the same lady who made the monkey.  Check out her website www.zijmaakthet.com 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.
