  1. oh yes, see some for me, too … too much light pollution here to see anything. One of the beautiful things about having (summer) holidays in the country is seeing a sky full of stars …
  2. absolutely. It's rather healthy for kids to do that, I think.
  3. good thing bess came to the rescue!
  4. We had a rainy day, all day. I'm at my sister's, so it's fine - nice, cosy and warm indoors In other news, Miss Doggy at home refuses to eat dinner, trying to force me to be at home NOW. Stubborn little thing.

    we‘ll see how it all ends. bess, i had a yarn in summer , the one that came in the nice transparent bag - the pattern is lovely but I really hate the yarn. Cotton with linen - the linen part makes the yarn so rough that every stitch is a battle. I gave up after ten days. stupid stuff was expensive, too
  6. It certainly cannot be easy on any of them.

    (you have to admit that the yarn is looking great, though. )

    second attempt: crochet, to keep the colours more concentrated. The very beginning looked nice, but when you look at the bigger it really is a LOT of colour (again!! ). Too much, actually, but it is as it is and I am going to finish it now and then see if I can find someone to adopt it …

    First attempt: knitted (to have something to do while watching movies … I cannot crochet blindly)

    I am making an afghan now, too. I had planned to knit it, but turns out the yarn looks boring when knitted, so I tried a crochet patter. Looks better, only the colours are hardcore colourful a very Mexican look, I think. A typical case of a gradient yearn looking better in a ball than in the finished project … I've had that rather frequently, lately.
  11. oh dear, I hope the driver eventually found you, bess. If he really is lost, at least he has some food with him Jude I like mist, too. We got a lot of it, sitting right next to the river. Sometimes I realize that the rest of the city is sitting in bright sunshine while we're still stuck in the white stuff ... Mist and fog make for interesting photos
