The last couple of weeks have been pretty busy. Work, chores, visiting friends and lots of outdoor activity. 

Mr. L. and I even had some quality time.

We visited the "wereldhavendagen" which is world port days in English, meaning the city buzzing with lots of visitors and ships.

We also visited some ships and Mr. L. was mostly excited with the warships.

Boys will be boys, right?

Back home it was time to knit in the spare time. Remember this project:

Great pattern, great yarn, beads.....

Not so great!!! They are waaaaaay to heavy for the delicate lace weight yarn. I asked the ladies of my local stitch and bitch (a little knitting get-together) what to do and they suggest I could put on some beads at the other side of the cowl too. 

Of course I ignored them, thinking it would turn out fine with beads at one side....

Well, it didn't. 

So, I frogged it. 

And then I started again.

Yes, I frogged more than fifty rows just to start all over again. 

The good news is, I found some new beads. Much smaller ones of course. 

Unlike the other bold and funky beads, these are neutral, calm and soft color tones. It has a different feel to it now, a bit more sophisticated.

I'm still thinking to add a pop of bright color in there to spice it up a bit. So I might visit the craftstore today to see what they have to offer. What do you think?

Calm, neutral and sophisticated?

Or a bit funky, perky and fresh?

I can't wait to finish it so I can show it to you properly.
