It's been a while since I posted a WIP post. This Wendsday seems perfect to show you what I am working on. Lately I have been too busy with opening of my Etsy shop. Telling the truth there are still two bags waiting to list: the pictures are edited but the descriptions... And I am a little bit in holiday mood: from July 30th till August 13th I will be free from work and from August 4th we will spend our summer holiday in Istria (Croatia). I am so excited. Otherwise I can't belive, that we are in the middle of July! Just one and a half month has been left from the Summer!
I have just found this book in our home library: we have a nice collection with over 1500+ volume. Mostly about history and arts. I am crazy for yarn shopping, my husband is crazy for books. And I don't mind it at all :) This holds the balance.
So the book has written by a croatian author, Fredrag Matvejevic. This book is the Hungarian translation of his bestseller Mediterranean Breviary: A Cultural Landscape. An exciting work about cultures and history mixed in a readable novel. Honestly this is the first novel I have ever read from a Croatian author. I was jus hunting for something in the bookshelves, which helps me to get into holiday mood. If you would love to feel yourself as a timetraveller in the Mediterranean region throughout ages and cultures, I highly recommend you this book.
As a new shop owner I am working on developing my shop: I have a few new bag designs on my head. These miscellanies are ingredients for those projects.
Look at this stunning silver/grey yarn! What a marvelous shade! It is Schachenmayr Catania Nomotta No. 172 Light Grey. A mercerized cotton yarn with high quality.
I also started to prepare for the colder seasons. Have you already taken a look at my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? (It is a free pattern.) I crocheted again a beret with that variagated yarn! When I finish it, I will show it from closer :)
I am linking this post to these fabulous parties!
Wish you happy summertime!
