  1. You live in such a beautiful place. So much inspiration !

  2. Ooh! is this the beginning of a new project? Turquoise would look beautiful too 🙂 Gorgeous petunias! Avis x

    • Thank you Avis! I started this while ago with some brown and beige … I don’t want to were again brown, so I had to find something else. x Teje

  3. Such wonderful pics, thanks for sharing them. We have had storms for a few days so it is a pleasure to look at your beautiful sea.

    • Thank you Gail! Weather seems to be upside down every where. We have many days very strong wind which is not normal this time. Hope your storm stops and doesn’t cause any problems. x Teje

  4. Yup…..that’s what you need to complete the watery palette!!! Hugs………

  5. I might have some turquoise double knitting. Would you like me to send you some? Email me if so. Jxo

    • Dear Judith, I wouldn’t dare to let you send me yarn. Thank you so much, you are darling! Have to ask what means ‘double knitting’? x Teje

  6. What a beautiful post with only pictures! I love this. And turquoise would be great with these colours of yarn.

    • Thank you Dorien! When I passed today this beach (as so often), colours were again so amazing that I had to stop for photos and show them to you. Didn’t have time to plan the post or write but I don’t think they need any explination. x Teje

  7. Hi T, it would be my pleasure to send you some wool, anytime! Double knitting is the weight of the yarn. Here we have 2 ply, 3 ply, Double Knitting (DK), then into aran and thicker weights. DK is a fairly standard medium weight which is commonly used for most projects. Jxo

  8. What a lovely, lacy pattern . Pieces for a new throw? A little aqua tossed in would be just right. Beautiful work–as usual. Sonja

  9. Oh I miss the sea!

  10. Beautiful, beautiful beautiful Teje!

    That sea must have an endless source of inspiration, its colors ever changing. Your crocheting looks so beautiful, those colors are all straight from those waves! I can’t wait to see the result, it’ll be perfect for summer!

    Have a wonderful first week of June!


  11. Beautiful colours! Xx

  12. Beautiful pictures….I love to watch the waves. Your crochet is beautiful too in those soft shades…..I hope you get some turquoise yarn soon!
    Wishing you a happy June, Teje.

    Enjoy your pretty yarns!
