Thank you so much for your good wishes to our wedding! We managed our first month and we're still very happy and very much in love! :)
I'm tied to the couch right now with a very, ery bad cold! I organized a three-day-long meeting for some european publishers. We made an excursion with them to an old abbey and to Austrias oldesr vineyard.
Crappy photos, I know! But inside an old library without electrical light and down under in an 1600 year old wine cellar you don't have the best lighting. It was a really funny and nice trip but it was raining all the time. And that's where I caught my bad cold. I'm lying on the couch right now and when I'm not asleep I use the time to do some crochet. My sister in law is pregnant and the baby will be born in the next ten days! And I promised her a baby blanket. So I should really hurry! And here's a sneak peek.
I will show you the full blanket once its gifted to my lovely sister in law and my new niece/nephew.
I also bought some new yarn for my next project. I worked with a yarn called "Catania" from Schachenmayr a lot before. It's a cotton yarn and it's mercerised and soft and shiny and comes in the most beautiful colors! This type of yarn is called "Catania Denim" and it's kind of a stonewashed color range. I saw a similar yarn on another blog and the blogwriter made a beautiful bag with it. I have to do some research now to find out where I saw that bag and that yarn so I can make it myself. If you know what bag I'm talking about - please let me know! I'm thankful for every single tip.
But enough talking. Here's the new yarn:
I can't wait to start working with it! It's so beautiful!
And since this post shouldn't be a about yarn: here's the lastest addition to my ever growing washi tape collection:
So what are you making or planning or buying right now? I'd love to know!
Have a nice and happy and sunny weekend! Xoxo
