A Gloomy Autumn Day – Ein trüber Herbsttag


Dear Friends,


right now, I'm kind of feeling as down and gloomy as the weather is. I'm not up to much talking either, so it's up to the pictures to tell the story of my new shawl...

    1. Thank you very much for these kind words. I could definitely do with some sunshine, in- and outside. True, picking the right yarn could comfort a little, I should at least give it a try! Have a nice Sunday, Marjan

    1. Seems I cannot live without flowers, but sadly enough there are not so many around in winter, therefore these simply had to be!

    1. Fürs Tuch habe ich gerade keine 200g (2 Knäuel) verbraucht (Rest reichte halt nicht mehr für noch eine weitere Reihe). Dazu noch ein wenig Bottle und White. Ich hoffe, das hilft... Viele Grüße und viel Spaß beim Häkeln!
