japanese books and a scarf


last weekend i was pampered by my youngest brother ernst. he came back from tokyo and brought me two books. 

one book is full of crochet patterns for hats and caps. here are a few pictures.


the other is a book full of knitting patterns and lessons with very inspiring photo’s. i can knit, but have not done it for a while. maybe ….




of leftover yarn i made a curly scarf. 



scarf or cowl

on this pictures you can see the scarf wrapped around the neck twice with the closure at the back. you can also wrap the scarf around the neck three times with the closure at the front, then it’s more like a cowl.


last year i made a short version of this scarf with a smaller closure.

hope you have a lovely week. take good care of yourself during this – for many of you – very busy time of the year!
