Crochet and knitting (bag)

 A few days ago I sewed a knitting bag. Quiltefia made a tutorial how to do.  Made from a piece of fabric I got a long time ago from Susan. I am very fond of butterflies and she sent me a fat quarter. Now I see it every day and it will be used Susan :-)
 Here the start of my fifth shawl this year. The pattern is called "Traveling Woman". I 'll give you the link when it is ready.
In the evenings I crochet. Two pair of potholders. Still cotton yarn from my mother. Now the bag is almost empty, only thin natural cotton yarn is left. Crocheting those potholders in those colors brought me back to the 'seventies'. The interiors of many houses where dark green/brown/orange OR black/purple/dark green.
In the '70 it was fashion in the Netherlands to have those colors. Our livingroom and kitchen also had brown/orange and dark green.
The purple ones goes to DD2 and the brown/orange ones are in my kitchen drawer. Ready to use. Nothing works better than potholders crocheted from cotton yarn.
Today is our 46 st. wedding anniversery, where are all those years gone????

Gratulerer med vel overstått bryllupsdag:-)

Så mye fint du har laget i det siste! Likte veldig godt begge lappeteppene. Jeg bodde en gang i en leilighet som hadde brun/orange tapet på veggene...og grønt...

Du har jo tatt bilde av rundballene våre, jo! (Det er vi som slår på Hammersvikhaugen...) Flott bilde av Salt

Håper våren kommer nå...selv om det snødde imorges...Ha en flott uke.

Flott strikkebag du har sydd. Gleder meg til å se sjalet ditt ferdig og så ser jeg at du også har laget grytekluter! Gratulerer så mye med bryllupsdagen. Det er ikke mange i dag som opplever å ha vært gift i så mange år (samboerskap og skilsmisser!). Den 29. har vi bryllupsdag, 41 år!!
