Keep warm!

It's hard to believe that another year is almost over! Yesterday was our last meeting of 2014. Tea, coffee, gingerbread and peperkoek kept us warm and happy in the Villa Elise. Thanks Ines and Hendrik! They'll be warm hands, heads and hearts this winter: Ines' mitten are heavenly, and Rozemie's hat and mitten set, in powder blue with robins, is exquisite. And one lucky youngster will be both warm and jolly in Rozemie's ladybird hat. Great work ladies!

Check out the dates and times for 2015 and see you soon.

PS. Keep a look for new posts - I've got several photos up my sleeve for December.

November has started


Ines' Paper Dolls - nog steeds een prachtig stuk!



Hopelijk zien we Marian's aardbei-trui in december "in levende lijve"!

Before Elvis....

... there was nothing.

So said John Lennon. I was so immersed in my complicated lace shawl during our last get together that I forgot to take photos. With one exception. I managed to grab a snap of Barbara's latest creation - a finely worked cross stitch piece with beading. Isn't it great?

See you soon!

Winter = socks and mittens?

If you are thinking about knitting socks or mittens this winter, look no further - a beautiful knitted artwork that's made of both. How are you getting on with your new season knits? Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday:

Attack of the dinos...

I'd love to share pictures of us in the park during our picnic, knitting and nattering, enjoying the sun and brownies... it was a lovely afternoon. Great company and happy times. But I was so busy chatting, I forgot! But far better than a photos of all us is a picture of this lovely creature: Barbara's crochet dinosaur! Soooo colourful, so well made, so expertly crocheted... he looks right at home in the park, doesn't he? I guess he's a herbivore...
