As far as crochet and finishing old wips is concerned, I’m afraid there’s not all that much to show you this gorgeous Fall Follow-up Friday.
You may recall, however, I was lucky enough to have been treated to an “all-inclusive” 4-day trip to Cannes/France by my sweet brother and his husband (gifted as a birthday present, back in February), and I love to share some photos of that wonderful voyage with you.
Cannes is my brothers’ favorite holiday destination of all; over the years it has become their home away from home.
They know all the fun little shops, restaurants, cocktail bars, beaches, and cool grocery stores even (my goodness …. Grandfrais, I love you), and they made sure they took me to most of them.In between eating, drinking, shopping and going to the beach, I did get some crochet in too.
I started The Little Bee‘s “Monsoon Stole” (with leftover Alize Cotton Gold from previous projects), and am absolutely smitten with this awesome design.
So much so, that it’s already finished, ends woven in, washed and blocked – so here’s the tadah!
It’s one of those patterns that I just know I’ll be crocheting over and over again – the different stitches are simply beautiful together and the choice of yarn will make the stole look very different every time: I have a new infatuation …..
