sun

after a summer of rain and storm, rain and storm and more rain, it was suddenly summer here in holland. for a few days it was warm and sunny. i just felt really not well but i occasionally sat on my bench in the garden and enjoyed the sun. thursday or friday afternoon i saw two pigeons also enjoyed the nice weather (on my garden table looking in!).

aren’t they cute?

cowl

this week i feel better and i just finished my project: the donatella cowl.
blogfriend donatella is wearing “this totally UNcool piece of accessory around my neck for the next three weeks“. her words not mine. 

Cowl

but i thought it would be nice if a prettier thing could be worn over it, which is not too chunky. this is my attempt.

  3. Genius idea to make a cowl to cover the neckwear. I think it looks great. And it gives me so many different ideas for crocheting to cover medical equipment!!!
