summer birds

I just had to share these ...

Swans at sea:

And a family of geese on their way to the playground:

These make me smile! :-)

crochet bag

My experiment with crochet is going surprisingly well, and my first project will soon be finished. I picked the "Fit to be tied" bag from Stich'n Bitch Crochet and chose a variegrated Finnish yarn. (Cocos by Novita.) The bag is working up pretty quickly and I'm already thinking that it could be another good idea for girly presents.

Here's the gauge swatch I made:

And here's the nearly finished bag:

I'm quite pleased! :-)

First sock FO!

Yes, my first-ever-sock is finally finished and though it's not perfect, I'm quite happy with the result!

I already cast on the second one and they are going to be the softest comfiest present for someone's feet! :-) Right now I have the ambition to buy the yarn in lost of delicious colours and make some nice socks as gifts for all my girlfriends ... Let's see how that comes along ...

As if that wasn't enough of a plan, I also bought "Stich'n Bitch Crochet" and am already eyeing the "fit to be tied" bag as a future project.

I still have an unfinished object lurking around that I have to get to first, though. Anyway, my crafting mojo seems to be on the up at the moment!
