First snow Antwerp, this afternoon. Such a pity snow doesn't stay for long in Belgium!

Go check this out: you can search Flickr by colour. It's fun!
And have you ever seen a cat as funny as in number 1?


I made this capelet for myself, but Lucy was so kind to model it for this post.

Autumn scarf

The colours of our garden inspired me to make an autumn scarf, crocheted in shell stitch.

I used my yarn stash, and did not buy anything new to make this scarf.

I found the instructions for the shell stitch in an old crochet book, but there are a lot of variations on this stitch: here, here and here.
It's quite addictive, I am warning you all!

A bit of blue

...despite the lack of sunlight to make proper pictures!
