New adventures

First of all, thank you for your lovely comments on the beautiful shawl I showed two weeks ago. Last week we were away for the weekend (pictures below) so I didn't write a blogpost. I also didn't stitch my Randje per Week. However, in this time of year it seems to me I have lots of time. Time to knit, to quilt and to go out with friends. I don't know if it is just a feeling, or if it is reality. Fact is we are heading towards six weeks (!) of summervacation! time to start some new projects!
I have a finished item again. My shawl, Unchained Melody, is done. The yarn turned out to be very slippery, I had to pay attention to hold the needles very tight, because now and then they tended to slip from the yarn. Here it is unblocked yet, but now it is wahed and on the blocking wires. I'll show the blocked version next week.
We went for a couple of days to Sauerland, Germany. Most people go there in winter (skying), but we hate snow and cold, so we prefer to go there in summer :) Here are some pictures, just to give you anidea.
As you can see we had sunny, warm weather. So when we got home, we went for an after party to our family house in the country to enjoy some more summer.

Another lovely shawl and the colours are very summery!

The place you stayed at in Germany reminded me of a place we stayed at outside of Koln. Your cottage looks lovely and cozy!
