My favorite waistcoat looks also neat when you wear it inside-out!
With the groovy loops inward, the wooly waistcoat has a completely different effect!
The pattern is quite popular and some crocheteers already made the waistcoat in a few days, I saw on Instagram. Cool!
You can find the wood & wooly cardigan pattern in my SHOP.

It sometimes occures I'm starting a crochet project without knowing what it's gonna be.
I like that stage, it's only the beginning of 'something' and still can become anything.
This 'project' is an example of starting something.
After making lots of square and oblong objects, i felt like making something round again.
So I'm crochetting, making rounds and rounds and rounds and rounds and rounds and I suddenly had a cute curtain for the round window in my vintage cupboard.
No, that's not it! Or perhaps a bottom for a bag?
For a while it was just nothing again, simply making lovely colorful round stripes on the garden bench.
I went on spinning around and came to the conclusion it will be just another pillow project after all.
We don't have a round pillow in the house yet, so it's about time...
The sunny stripes also would look great on the garden bench I guess.

We made another delicious recipe from the wonderful cookbook THE SOUK by Salma Hage.
Last weekend we chose chicken with green lentils & a taboulé salad and I can assure you it was so tasteful and quite easy to make.
It surely is a bonus when you can eat such a summer meal outside the garden.
Nothing beats having dinner together in the backyard!

We had the most amazing pink sunset skies on Thursday!
The evening light in our backyard was so beautiful and magical!
The chain on our fence is made of stones and a piece of rope, we've found on the beach of Ile de Ré two years ago.
