Oh how I love this time of year...
I could easily re-decorate my wooden tree every single day. (piece of cake)
If you would like to share your version of the wood & wool x-mas tree, post it on Instagram #woodwoolstool.
Yay, i'm so curious...

My wood & wool stool made it to the cover of the American Craft's 2013 Holiday Lookbook.
The lookbook went live last Wednesday and will be promoted through the American Craft Council throughout the month of December. It's an exciting special edition of American Craft magazine! Just have a L O O K!
[Dutch designer Ingrid Jansen takes crochet far beyond your grandmother's afgan. Vividly colored and patterned, her garlands, blankets and pillows are made to order for the enjoyment of both children and adult. Perhaps her most noteworthy use of crochet is to cover her handmade recycled wooden stools, an exuberant addition to any home. etsy.com/shop.woodwoolstool]

After we visited the brocante of Maria & Lammie last Friday, we happened to be in the neighbourghood of vintage shop All The Luck In The World.
Luckily we met my friend and shopowner Jane at ATLITW. She advised us to stop by at Hutspot and so we did.
Unfortunately it was rainy most of the day, however Amsterdam is alway a good idea...

This week i've knitted three red beanies.
Pippa asked me to make a thight red beanie for her some weeks ago.
So I ordered a crochet kit with two red balls of 100% wool and a crochet needle at we are knitters™.
Pippa's beanie was ready in less than 2 hours. She loves it and I made another one for a sweet friend the next day. I could easily make two thight beanie out of one ball of wool and so had enough wool left to make myself another beanie in red. (like my brown beanie) It's lovely to wear, so warm and soft!
Finally I decided to knit the three hats anyway and did use the crochet needle only to make a big red heart... Knitting with needles No 15 goes like a rocket!

Today we visited the autumn B R O C A N T E edition of Maria de Haan & Lammie Snoeken in Amsterdam.

and on the 6th, 7th and 8th of December next weekend.
The door is open from 11:00 AM.
PS: we bought that adorable [delacoste] display rack...
