Hello, my friends!

I’m a bit absent-minded lately… or at least I feel like that…. A lot of things are happening in these days mostly related to small every day issues which are fixed as you go but which do not allow me to be online as often as I used to be. Well,on one hand,that’s not so bad because I’m often out but, on the other, I follow less the news in blogland… I have to say that here is not like live in Parma. It takes me half an hour or forty minutes by bike to reach the nearest grocery shop so if I want anything it takes me something like two hours for fetch it… go out, time spent in the shop, a chat, and go back home… But if you have seen my photos on Instagram you can easy understand why I don’t mind spending so much time out….



Since it is fifteen years that I do not practice any sport (except working or similar obligatory ‘to do’ stuff… ) my muscular ache was quite bad lately and that made me feel quite dizzy… Now I feel much better but the time I need to ride around is the same… and there is less of it to dedicate to blogland… :/

I’m always crafting… I always find time for create and even if now I have my Big man both at lunch and dinner (YIPPEE!!!!) I didn’t neglect my craft.

I’m both working on my curtains….


…. and on my Crescent shawl


Talking about this last project of mine…. I made a mistake in this central part of the shawl… I realized, after two rows knitted already, that I had lost a stitch…. and this was the result….


Can you spot the three holes…? They don’t exactly look like a honeycomb, do they….? By the way, this lace looks much alike a honeycomb… well, I was thinking about leaving this as it is but the awareness of those three holes’ existance annoyed me to the point that I had to find a solution…


Spotted the fixed part, the one indicated by the hook?Oh, I didn’t do anything special except bring a string of yarn up to the last worked row… it still does not look like a honeycomb but it is much better than having three ugly holes which can be easily noticed by anyone… Yes, I know, I’m exhausting… indeed…

It is time to make dinner here so I’m off to prepare something for the two of us…

Have a nice evening ❤ ❤ ❤

  1. Do you not drive then? Cycling sounds like a lovely way to do your grocery shopping – as long as there aren’t too many hills! Quick thinking to pick up the lost stitch on your shawl rather than having to unravel a few rows:)

    1. Oh,I do have the driving licence but not a car yet 😛 😛 😛 we are working on solving this issue because you can’t do your errands here around without one.
      I’m not still good in unraveling lace knitting… no problem with a stockinette or garter stitch or even the cables but lace…. oh, my God… I found it easier to pick up the stitch and hide the mistake in that way … 😛 😛 😛

  2. I shamelessly enjoy the countryside here.. It is beautiful and I can easily reach the nearest burgs by bike so, even if we live out of town, I can do my errands even if I need more time for them… but who cares…. there are so many bad things happening in the world lately that I find it correct and intellectually honest to respect and to enjoy the beauty we are surrounded with.
