I'm off




Everything has to wait. I'm leaving on a jet plane and won't be back until next week again.

The Swedish translation of The Nordic Wrist Warmers and The Popcorn & Lace Pillow and The Popcorn & Lace Square has to wait a bit longer.

The blog posts will come to a slight stall for a week.

I won't be able to respond to emails in an instant.

I won't be able to process any Tilda yarn orders this week.

No, all My Rose Valley business has to pause for a bit because we are going to Sweden, to our paradise peninsula outside Stockholm, to sign the contract on a cute little summer house, just 50 meters from my brother's summer house. Isn't that fantastic? My Swedish family is growing and we all need more space. And I am delighted to own my very own "Rosendalen", or Rose Valley as we say in English.

And when traveling you need to pick a great crochet project to bring, which often can be a struggle as you really would like to bring it all. But that is not possible right? So my advice, for anyone traveling, is to pick a project with a minimum of colors. If you are making a Gypsy Blanket you will have to bring a suitcase extra just to hold all your yarn... Not a great idea.

I am bringing this new shawl project from the wonderful book Puur Haken, written by Maaike at CreJJtion. It is her first crochet book and it is a divine to flick through and the projects are so much fun. And even if the book is in Dutch I have managed to make a few projects already with help from the beautiful diagrams and Google Translate. So a lace shawl in darkest grey it will be, for all my black dresses this winter. I will add a pinkish border at the end. Will look smashing! Have  a wonderful week everyone.

Au Revoir! Hasta Luego! Auf Wiedersehen! På återseende!
Until we meet again!

Kärlek
Annette

  13. It's brilliant that you are buying a summer home in such a great place too. I took all 15 colours on holiday recently for the cotton blanket I'm crocheting!! And another 2 bags of yarn for other projects. But I wasn't flying.
