Warm feet

I'm proud of myself because I finished my socks. My first pair of socks ! I never knitted socks before and I didn't know I could do it. But here they are. It is much easier then I thought.
I made them out of a great yarn, 80% wool so they will keep me warm this winter.

It's addictive. I bought more wool in different colours so I will be busy this winter. I like it, to have something to do when we are watching TV, for me it is waist of time just sitting and doing nothing. So I'm happy with my new wool and show you when my next pair of socks are finished.

Your socks are very nice. I've never knitted socks, but I have to try.

Zo'n vreemd idee, dat het bij jou winter is,...
terwijl wij de eerste zomerdag hebben,...
Hoewel echt Nederlands, bewolkt,...

Ik ken het gevoel van iets willen doen voor de tv. Wij kijken ook tv, maar niet omdat het winter is, maar vanwege het ek voetballen. Hoewel Nederland gisterenavond uitgeschakeld is. :-(((. Groetjes en brei ze!!!

This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
