PicKnit 2017

What started in 2011, was picked up again in 2014 and 2015?

Not a sweater this time, but the knitting picnics in 't Bosje (Maria Hendrikapark)!

Time to do it again!

When: Sunday August 6th 2017, as of 2pm
Where: meadow between old water tower and the bigger of the two lakes
What to bring: a blanket or beach chair, sun screen, hat, drinks and a pie you'd like to share

The two T's:
1) TAZ just ended the day before, so there might be some remnants of their stages / tents, but surely you'll find the cheer- and colourful bunch that is Breien in Oostende!
2) Toilets > nearby at Koninginnehof

Catching up

Keeping a blog up-to-date can be quite a bit of a chore:
Photos get stuck on someone else's phone, spiffy texts are hard to come by and all in all, our lives are just too fast when we're not knitting.

So let's catch up, and then, let's see how we can continue in a more contemporary manner...

Gallerie Beau Site

Being there was just too nice to spend time squinting at a smart phone screen…

Happy Birthday Ines!

Time to celebrate! On 5th March, it was Ines's birthday which happened to coincide with breiclub. Hurrah! What's not to love about coffee and walmut cake and a glass of cava? Marian's healthy cookies were also a treat. And you will also see, below, all the beautiful yarn that the birthday girl brought home from 'Unravelled' in Farnham. The pièce de résistance? Ines's brand new signal hat, from the latest issue of PomPom magazine, designed by her good friend Anna Maltz. The inside is as perfect as the outside and the colours were inspired by an Eric Ravillious painting. Knitted entirely from odds and ends of yarn found in her stash. Little did she know it then, but her creation played a part in her winning PomPom's 'spring can only get better' competition. One lucky and talented lady! Here's to you, Ines!

The inside is as good as the outside!

Just gorgeous!

Happy Birthday Barbara!


It's never polite to give away a lady's age, so I won't be mentioning any years... Suffice to say, we celebrated Barbara's birthday in style: with a delicious homemade chocolate brownie cheesecake (thank you Ines!), some Cornish Fairings (courtesy of myself) and a lovely glass of Cava (cheers Barbara!). There were blushes and a treasure chest filled with wool (and a surprise present). Not to mention glorious knitting, such as Marianne's sweet rabbit cardigan (with a back as perfect as the front) and Anne's cheerful crochet placements. Whose birthday is it next I wonder?
