The garden is green !
We had quite some rain lately
so that's why !
But it also means that the flowers last a long time.
There are still a lot of Bluebells,
but I took away most of the Forget-me-not's
(they sow themselves só massively ...)
Last Friday I visited with a friend
the "Breifestival" (knitting festival) in Nieuwpoort
Nieuwpoort is a (partially rebuilt) old fortified town
not too far from where we live.
It has one of my favourite quilt and yarn shops : De Schapekop
The entire little town was adorned with knitted items :
on windows, benches, flagpoles, lampposts, trees ...
even from the old town hall tower blew a knitted banner !
(forgot to take my camera, but believe me, it was fun)
Some of the lovely yarn I bought
(the twó on the right are purple, always have difficulty photographing thát colour !)
I am still busy knitting socks for myself
(ha ! very clever with this cold spring weather)
and since the surprise present for Anne's baby is finished
and arrived safely Down Under
I can continue the socks for grandson nr 1
(Arrrgh : look at the difference in colour of the floor :
just because the yarn has a different colour !
the green of the monkey is real green !!!)
