Creative winter

Winter is slowly approaching. There is so much to do every week, and knitting and crocheting projects are accumulating inside my mind and in my Ravelry queue of course!
One of my colleagues was wearing a lovely sweater the other day, I was intrigued by the lacy design. I took a photo of it and I will make sure to find the pattern/stitch and create... a scarf maybe (I am not the sweater kind of knitter).
Here is the pattern:

Not the greatest picture, but we were at the office, she was actually wearing the sweater and I was taking the picture in the middle of a conversation.
Isn't it lovely?

Doors

I have recently developed a fixation on doors! I keep photographing these during my travels. I find them beautiful. Here are some doors found on Spetses island.


 This is amazing! It is an old door with embroidery on it. Just lovely!

Art and crochet

Last February, I was working in Milan where I was impressed by this metal crochet bag!
Anazing, isn'it?
Well, there was also lovely pastry...

 And even more delicious shoes!
 But hey, I enjoyed true Italian carbonara and espresso :-)

Visiting Crete island

This summer, I had the opportunity to visit Crete island to attend to a wedding and had a quick stop at the Chania museum of folklor art. There was a 80 year old lady who has shown as around, how she and her parents used to live. The tiny museum is a reconstitution of everyday life situations. It was touching to see.

Summer is gone


And my new year's resolution is too start a blog! Well, I know January is not here yet, but to me the beginning of school/academic year is still the beginning of new year, new resolutions, la rentrée.
This is my attempt to gather my thoughts (and mostly my photographs) about knitting, crocheting, travelling and all beauty I see in life.
