What’s going on: new pattern and more!

Hi! I want to share some exciting news as I’m working towards a new pattern! These past months I’ve been working towards the winter with help of two Scheepjes Whirls and a Whirlette πŸ™‚ And this is the result:

In the Netherlands, I mostly work with either whirls or 100% cotton, and in the US, there is much more acrylic yarn.

So I’m working on a couple of projects just for myself and trying my hand at crochet video’s. You’ll probably hear more about this as I’m liking it so far!
