Hello Dear Friends! Few words for Friday! Today I remembered that I haven’t showed to you my winter coat and soon the winter is turning again to spring!
I have made this crochet coat/jacket some time ago and I use it in winter here in Crete. In Finland this would be great for spring and autumn. But believe it or not, I need here also some times my feature winter coat!
Oops … now I noticed that the sleeves are not turned like they are meant to be. You may see ‘a line’ where the right sleeve is normally turned (about 2″ from edge). Sorry, but I can’t take a new photo now.
The yarn, I have used is very thin for machine knitting, so I have used 3 of them together. There is white, brown and one mixed colour. I didn’t have any pattern, just took some measures from an other jacket. All the pieces are very simple shapes. This is very thick and warm and only for outside use. Sometimes I have been thinking that a linen would be great … but I guess I feel it’s too complicated for me to make it. Then this could be used also even when it’s windy weather.
This day began with beautiful sunshine and blue sky! Shadows were still deep and dark when I was out with the dogs taking these photos. Now it’s turning to very strong wind and from the evening againg rain is expected. It was great to have two days brake from rain! Ah, almost forgot to tell you that two days ago in the morning we had zero 0! degrees!!! The front window of the car was frozen! That was Really Unusual!
This week I am visiting often my new ‘golden’ friend and I meet this gang every day. An other time I will introduce my friend to you. These fellows here have also some kiddies around …
