2014!

colorful crochet granny squares

I am wishing you a happy New Year, dear friends!

May it be blessed, lucky and amazing for you all!

My first days of the new year have been filled with a lot of beautifully relaxing crochet. And knitting too.

I have actually realized that I have 3 projects in progress these days.

First of them, my Color Burst Blanket, is gaining its ‘square power’ rather quickly. What a delightful work that is!

 

knitted basket stitch scarf

I started a green knit scarf. I admit, I love knitting simple scarves just like this basketweave one. I have also realized that when it comes to scarves, I quite often find myself reaching for color green. Who knows why… Anyhow, the basketweave stitch is inspired by my sweet childhood memory – a sweater that my sweet Mom made for me as a present. I loved it so much and will never forget the moment I received it.

 

crochet earflap beanies with braids

And then, I tried my hand at my first crochet earflap beanies. It’s a fun project. And really easy as well. I see more of these in my life, I guess. Perhaps I’ll make a pattern too.

Do you have any handmade work in progress right now? Do tell! I would love to know.

With love,
Petra

 

Christmas in Vienna

Christmas 2013 in Vienna - Vienna Christmas Market

Hello friends!

I hope you and yours are enjoying a very happy holiday season!

We definitely are!

One of the things that have made me happy recently was a trip to Vienna that we took a few days before Christmas. The only goal of the trip was to soak up the lovely festive atmosphere that this amazing city is so famous for around this time of year. With a simple goal like this, the mission was really easy to accomplish. We strolled the streets of Vienna city center utterly amazed at the abundance of wonderful Christmas cheer that was present just everywhere.

Are you friends ready for a lot of bright Christmassy goodness? Yes? Then here we go…
