Winter knitwear. I really l O V E it.
The dusty pink sweater I've made with the same pattern as the striped sweater I've knitted last year.
What I like about this sweater is the loose fit and basic look. It's a woolen sweater, but you can wear it underneath a jacket and it's not too warm, but warm enough to be your favorite winter wear.
I've been wearing the black and natural colored sweater dress a few seasons and I like the shorter sweater version just as much.
You can find the winter wardrobe patterns in my Etsy shop.
Try to make one yourself, because nothing beats homemade winterwear.
It's not difficult at all, even for a beginner...

NEW travel workshops in Marrakech next year!
Besides the Cool Crochet Marrakech workshops, we will organize Green Gardens workshops in May and October 2017.
In the last few years I've visited quite some stunning gardens and oases in the medina and fell in love with the amazing green gardens of Marrakech. For those out there, who can't or rather don't want to crochet, we will arrange an opportunity to discover Marrakech in an alternative way next year.
During the workshop we will visit and explore all kinds of gardens in and around Marrakech; An Arabic garden, a rose garden, botanical gardens, secret city gardens, city parks, hidden courtyards, an art garden, museum gardens and vegetable- and herb gardens.
To make the green theme complete, we will also organize a veggie cooking workshop (including vegetables & herbes shopping in de souk). All the participants will get an herbarium notebook, in which they can make daily sketches and collect green memories, such as leaves and seeds.
You will be surprised how green the Red City actually is. Urban jungle adventures with guided tours and delicious moroccan food, make this green travel-workshop unforgettable!

A few new items in my workplace.
The steel vintage hospital table serves as my desk and I have turned it sideways so I can look into the living room.
The banana plant on my desk is slowly becoming a banana tree.
The blue A we bought last Friday in Amsterdam (see previous post)
...and the new harlequin herringbone rug fits in nicely anywhere.
I put it on the floor for the occasion, but we use it as a blanket on the sofa, now it's becoming colder.
