Last week it was beautiful weather, so warm I often sat in the shadow. But this weekend it was raining, and raining.....

I suppose the plants do like this rain, thye are growing very hard. The white roses are smelling nicely.

Y. was at home for the weekend, love it. I miss him a lot now he's living in Amsterdam. But he's happy, he likes his study and the university, (were I was studying too, 35 years ago) and has the opportunity to meet new people. He lives in a student house, enjoys it very much. He has lots of fun and laughter.
But this weekend he came home with loads of laundry (mama....) and hungry.
Sunday morning my boys made brunch, delicious. I'm on a kind of diet, but neglected this. They set the table nicely, because I like that. They would be very happy to get something in the kitchen and eat it out of their hands.

And as we always love to do we playd board games, they grew up with this. We often play, all kinds of board plays, and they use to do this with friends too.

And ofcourse there was hooky time, I'm making a kind of summer blanket, with catania cotton and hook number 3. So this will not become to warm; most times I'm making my blankets out of wool, and I mean 100% natural yarn like wool, alpaca and so. I don't care for acrylic very much, allthough last year I did make some blankets out of Stylecraft yarn, inspired by the amazing Lucy of attic24. They are for use in the caravan, (which we sold this spring) or outside.

While I was taking the photo above I saw I was wearing some self knitted socks. It surely is cold, I often walk barefoots. Some years ago I've made loads of socks. They were wearable projects, and I did knit mostly in those years, and I worked lots of night shifts, so sometimes there was time to knit during my work time. Sounds nice, doesn't it?

Those years I didn't crochet, I began to crochet when I discovered Lucy's blog some 4 years ago. And now I mainly crochet, although I do have some knitting plans, which involve knitting lace.
Oh, I was feeling good this weekend, my eldest at home. Time to relax with each other....Good times.

  3. Hello! Thank you for the kind comments you have left on my blog. I like the sound of your blog - can't go wrong with crochet and cycling in my opinion! I hope the weather improves for you. It's been dry here today but cold and cloudy.

  4. How wonderful that your family is all together. i love it when we are all under one roof... My kids love to play games, too and we can get quite competitive! We have lots of wild scrabble games with crazy new vocabulary scoring really high points... all of laughing our heads off at the obscure words... They are fond memories to build on and remember when they are older :)
