yarn along :: back to vests and ya lit



after finishing my color affection shawl (thanks so much to all of you for your lovely comments!)  i had a knitting break. this is the first year that i'm gardening more than a balcony, so i have spent so much time working out of doors that in the evenings (when most of my knitting is done) i just crashed on the couch or my bed, unable to knit a stitch. some rainy days have reached us again though, so a few quiet indoor hours might be spent with yarn and needles again. i'm back to the vests, trying to finish the little man's first.

i have been reading on my kindle, right now it's Eleonor and Park, by Rainbow Rowell. i had read good reviews of Fangirl, but decided to start with this one. so far, i like it! i am always drawn to ya and kid literature. i think a main reason is that i feel younger than i am. i think most of the time i don't feel older than 21, lol!

what about you, what have you been knitting, reading and making? joining ginny's yarn along and frontier dreams' keep calm craft on.

early spring blooms




while planting, pruning and sowing, a sunny spring day had me looking for something blooming. the variery isn't that big yet, but there was enough to bring some spring indoors to enjoy on rainy days!

corners of our home :: my kitchen





here we go with the last part (for now) of corners of our home. i'm sharing a few details from my kitchen today. the best part of this kitchen is that it is open. the wall that you see here used to be closed. it is the corner by the fireplace, so there was a couch and an armchair etc. here. but i never liked how small the kitchen was, and that you needed to walk through the hall to get to the dining area. i love open kitchens, so we knocked part of the wall down to make a small doorway and a "window" (keeping the beams for stability).

 my hubby and i are quite proud of the whole construction, including the table we built ourselves (not being particularly technically skilled in these areas). it started as a small breakfast area, but we usually have breakfast at our dining table. i just love being able to prepare meals and have an overview of the living room, dining corner, the terrace and front garden. i also love the idea of pouring a glass of wine for dinner guests who have a seat here and chat with me while i finish chopping the salad.

is is the space you will most likely find me in when i work on my laptop, write lists, and have my first cup of coffee in the mornings. (i just noticed there are two empty picture frames. oops! the sights you get used to... i will have to find some more b&w photos to pop in there!)

the fabulous quote above the sink is actually not on a poster, but on a tea towel which i got in berlin last year from this shop.

thanks for stopping by. once any other corners of our home feel ready to share, i will. have a lovely day!
