Frantically knitting away on my new summer cardigan

That's right, I'm frantically knitting away on my new summer cardigan, made out of Catania cotton. The yellow that buttons I will be using were a gift from my friend Carolien, who bought the buttons for me during her vacation in Pfronten, Germany. I love how my cardigan is turning out, and I think it will look great with many of my summer clothes. So now I'm trying to get the cardigan finished as quickly as I can, so that I can take it with me on our summer vacation. I'd better get back to my knitting!

Textielmuseum: 'Artist Textiles - Picasso to Warhol'

Gisteren bezocht ik het Textielmuseum Tilburg, voor de opening van de tentoonstelling ‘Artist Textiles – Picasso to Warhol’ exposition. Op de tentoonstelling zijn textielontwerpen te zien van o.a. Margaret Calkin James, Miro, Leger, Picasso, Dali, Warhol, Saul Steinberg en Zandra Rhodes, ik vond het geweldig om te zien allemaal. De tentoonstelling loopt nog tot 14 september.

Crocheted Afghan

Last Sunday I finished this crocheted afghan (there were a lot of ends to weave in!). The afghan was a birthday present for my friend Marjon and I could give it to her later that same day. I thoroughly enjoyed working on this project, and Marjon was very happy to receive it, so that was all good. And now I kind of miss working on it, so I'm thinking about starting another crocheted afghan (I suddenly think we could use one on our yellow couch :)
