My fern and Feather

This was a photo I took when we stayed in Denmark for a holiday. I started my Fern and Feather with Swedish wool from Ullcentrum Öland and the woman from the shop told me that these colors were inspired by the flowers and plants in the area of Öland. I love that idea! I've knitted a huge part since I made this photo. I will soon share my progress.

Those saturated colors

O, the week has gone so fast! Last weekend I was with a good friend on the 'Handwerkfair' at de Vertakking in Ryptjerk. We shared a stand and despite the wasps we had such a sociable day!

I still didn't take some time to download all the photo's I made in Denmark a couple of weeks ago. I hope I will find some time this week.

Today I was in the garden cleaning up some pots and the expendable greenhouse (no more sowing this year) and I realized autumn is slowly taking over summer. I notice it in the morning when it's fresh and sometimes a bit misty in the mornings. And while some plants are still flowering some leaves are turning brown and yellow. Autumn is a beautiful season with all those saturated colors.

I've added some new handdyed wool in my Etsy Shop and I'm still adding more in the following week.

And I've been knitting on some projects and finished a new dress! I will show in my next post what I've been making!

Small talk

I've not written any blogposts in a while because the summer holiday had such warm weather I didn't feel like sitting at my desk in a room with a temperature of 30 C+ would make any good blogpost.

So now I'm back with a small update while the cat sleeps and snores beside me. The last time I wrote a blogpost I've uploaded some photo's of handdyed yarn. Now my Etsy shop is closed for some weeks because during the holiday I decided to take a go at the Handwerkfair in Ryptjerk at De Vertakking at 8 september (saturday). I will be sharing a stand with a good friend and I'm very excited!
I dyed a lot of different types of yarn and I hope people will like what I dyed. I'm looking forward to have a nice day.

After the fair I will write here again and talk a little about my holiday in Denmark.

I'll be back soon!
