Don't you think for one moment that because we're on summer holiday, it would actually be...summery.
In one day we'll have short bouts of sunshine, wind, misty rain, drizzle, cold rain, fog coming in over the bay...but at least we're gazing at the ocean!
I completed ± 25 stars (estimating from the picture here, not all visible), hooked some loops, added some beads (with difficulty, as warned about by my sisi), but look, here they are! Happily flapping away in the Garden Route wind. I grouped all of them together on the leaf-less (don't know why) part of the tree, and it really looks nice. Some even has a bell of two.
Am I going to be doing this again next year?
But with nice cotton, and more of that little bunting and bells and beads.
So I've started with Simultaneously Hooked Holiday Project 1:
...a new-wool scarve for my cold sis in wet, dreary, cloudy, dark Ireland; to brighten her day.
A full post will be devoted to this bright, sunshiny softness.
(When I'm back home, with my download cables and Picasa...these were downloaded from mobile uploads on Facebook...).
Whilst hooking away I was sipping rooibos tea with honey and snacking away on one of my absolute favourite things in the world, a good old South African milktart, much the same as the French and Portuguese baked custards. We like ours baked in puff pastry, with more than a dash of cinnamon sugar.
I could survive on this!
Simultaneously Hooked Holiday Projects 2 and 3 entails a Cath Kidston tin with 6 small balls turning into a cushion, and some plain cotton twine growing into a little sunhat.
Then there's the plastic bags being cut up (#4) and the wool mix aran (#5) and the Ripple Blanket (#6)...I really am making sure I'll be busy.
Enjoy your holiday if your having, and I wish all the One-A-Dayers (and others) and blessed Christmastime! And again, thankyou to Carole for hosting this CAL. I'm looking forward to seeing the last post of this year at Gingerbread Girl.
