we just returned from lovely holidays in Normandy, France! although we didn't have the best weather, we did have a great time and came home well rested and very impressed by the nature and WOII history of the places we visited. 

 but vacation just wouldn't be vacation if it didn't involve a good amount of knitting. ;) i started a new pair of socks again couple of months ago, and took the second sock with me to finish. so now i have again a finished pair to add to my sock drawer!

  the colours went surprisingly well with my new green t-shirt...
 ... but also with the fishing nets in the harbour...
 ... or the nature at Omaha Beach!

  i also took a new project with me, because this pair was almost finished and i printed out a gorgeous pattern weeks ago... :)  so in the last couple of days of our holidays i started knitting on a pair of Gladys socks! something a bit more challenging and with a solid yarn for a change! don't you just love the chevrons?

there's a post about my finished pair of socks coming up real soon.. but first there is some post-holidays washing and ironing to do... :) how did you spend your vacation? was it good? do you also take your crafty projects along? do tell me in the comment section! :) 


  1. Op onze volgende reis neem ik gehaakte ruitjes mee, om eindelijk eens in elkaar te haken. Ze liggen al maaaaaanden te wachten...
    Die eerste foto is trouwens prachtig!

  2. Ik kon het niet laten om een sjaal-in-progress mee te nemen op mijn vakantie naar Noorwegen! (Een vakantie zonder breien is toch niet echt vakantie?!) Gelukkig dat ik blind kan breien, want daar zijn heel veel en heel lange tunnels :)

  3. Oooh, ik wil direct m'n fiets op. Die breinaalden laat ik weliswaar thuis. Mooi Severien, echt!


thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! :)
