seriously hooked

dear diary,

As the weather continues to amaze us with unheard amounts of sunshine and Mediterranean temperatures, my garden has never looked better. I have of course been watering it, and the flowers seem to like this long stint of sun sun sun just as much as we do, the lawn however is a weird shade of beige.

In the spirit of summer and colourful flowers I have been drawn to crochet more and more over these past few weeks. Initially it all started with the ‘homely blanket’ and having to live up to my promise of a new square each week. Soon I couldn’t stop myself to try out new ideas, yarns and stitches, and I must also admit that crochet is much easier to handle in this hot weather.

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will have seen what I have been up to, but for all you lovelies who aren’t part of the Instagram world, here are some photos of recent bits and pieces…
