Do you ever wonder how and where people are when they crochet? Are they nicely curled up in their comfy chair or are they sitting at the table counting their stitches? I have to admit that watching tv and crochet is something that always go together for me. Especially when I'm crocheting a blanket, 'cause when the blanket gets bigger I get to drape it nice and warmly over my legs whilst watching something. The last couple of days, this was me. Crocheting on the couch whilst watching the speedskaters at the Olympics. The Dutchies are doing really well, so I had to interrupt work sometime to watch some of the exciting races. And crocheting manages the nerves quite well.
Al dat Nederlandse succes op de Olympische Spelen is eigenlijk wel fijn, want dat betekent dat er flink door gehaakt kan worden aan mijn zomers project. Er moeten immers meer dan 100 bloemetjes gehaakt worden!
But I must admit, all that Dutch success at the Olympics is quite nice. 'Cause with all that sports watching means that some progress has really been made at my spring project. It's a good thing, as I've got over 100 flowers to crochet.
Zoals je ziet: sommige mensen bijten nagels tijdens spannende sportwedstrijden, ik haak. Aan de stapels en stapels bloemetjes kun je bijna aflezen hoeveel medailles de Nederlanders al hebben gehaald in Sotchi. Ik haak met Softfun van Scheepjeswol, een katoen-acryl combinatie. Ik ben er behoorlijk enthousiast over, vooral de kleuren zijn heel mooi. Het spat echt van het scherm af hè!
Waar zijn jullie op dit moment mee bezig?
As you can see: some people bite nails when they're watching an exciting race on tv, I crochet. I think that by looking at the amount of flowers you can almost tell how many medals the Dutch have already won in Sotchi. Anyway, these flahrz have been crocheted with Softfun, by Scheepjeswol. It's really lovely, the colours really pop!
So what are you making at the moment?
