striped summer sweater - d.i.y.

striped summer sweater (knitting pattern)

Oh, lookie. The striped summer sweater!

New in my ETSY SHOP; an easy to follow knitting pattern with detailed description in English and Dutch version.

Summer is on the way and what is it about stripes that they just scream S U M M E R ?!
Probably it has something to do with sailing on those summer seas.

Who doesn't want lilac & yellow stripes for summer evenings?

Hop over to my Etsy shop and knit your one-piece summer sweater in only a couple of days.

Friday - 11th of June - Rotterdam

Finally we can go to the museum again, after months of lockdown.

We missed it.

A few weeks ago we booked our first 2021 museum visit, we start at the Kunsthal, where we went for the last time in November.

We were treated to some nice exhibitions in the Kunsthal. Erik Matthijsen's exhibition is by far my favorite, i love his style, colors and objects.
I discoverd his work for the first time at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam in August 2019. Piece by piece colorful and inspiring paintings of everyday objects.

We celebrated the first museum visit in 2021 with a 'delizioso' italian lunch at Osteria Vicini.

So happy with these 'returned joys of life'. It feels so good to be able to do the things that used to be so normal...

summer in june - a la plancha

rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam rotterdam

Rotterdam - 9th of June 2021
A La Plancha is a pop-up restaurant on the Noordereiland, the island in the river Maas in Rotterdam. During spring and summer a terrace is built on the bridgehead of the old Willemsbrug. Sustainable fish, fried on the grill (a la plancha) on the menu. The location and the atmosphere provide a special experience, as if you are on holiday.

Yesterday evening we first had a citywalk and later on dinner in the sunset at the Maas with the four of us; Soufiane, friend and (Noorder)island resident, son Minne and Henk & moi.

Summer in June, carpe diem.
