How are you doing? I am on holidays since yesterday and man, it feels good. The last couple of weeks were great but also very exhausting.
Last week/weekend I was down in Stuttgart for the Protestant Church day. The Church Day is a huge event with over 100 000 people being there, tons of shows, talks and also full of market stalls where different organisations present themselves. I was there for my work. We had a great stall and an awesome team which made the whole thing a lot of fun. As you can see, Mr. Alienbunny also took the chance to head down to Southern Germany!
The weather was amazing: Over 30 degrees and blue sky. Unfortunately it also meant that the huge tents where the stalls were located heated up really fast. Hot and humid... Not my favorite thing really.
It was nice for the evenings though, when one could spent the time outside in temperatures above 20 degrees. I met with my cousin who lives in Stuttgart. Good times! We went to see a concent of the Wise Guys and it was fabulous! The Wise Guys are a rather famous acapella band with very funny but also very intelligent songs. Check them out! :)
I managed to sequze some crochet in but "unfortunatly" most of my current works are gifts. As some of the people who shall receive one of the gifts, may read this blog, I can't show you yet...
Some weeks ago I saw a wonderful shawl made with Sari Yarn. I couldn't resist and ordered some from India. I was surprised that it arrived just five days later (that said I am still waiting for a yarn delievery from the Netherlands which should have been here three weeks ago!). Working with it can be pretty hard but I think I got the hand of it now. The black yarn is Drops Big Merino - so soffftt! As I need to use both yarns at the same time they sometimes tangle but I shall conquer :P
Drops had a wonderful 35 % off sale going on for the last month. Of couuurrsse I had to take advantage of it. Lots of black, red, orange and yellow for some bonfire beanies. I wrote the pattern up but I need to take more pictures before it can be published. Hopefully I can get it done next week during my holiday time!
I hope you all have a wonderful and sunny weekend!
