Dear Friends,

…. I have to leave my blog for a while….


…. not because I'm tired of blogging or of you all : NEVER !!!! ….


….. but I, Paolo, Matteo, Tobia and Margot …..


….. are leaving Jakarta…. yes, we are !!!!!! After 4 years of being in Indonesisia….


….. we are moving to a new HOME, another exotic place, btw….


….. our next destination is MAPUTO in MOZAMBIQUE …. !!!!! ……


We are really really really busy at the moment, so I need to concentrate myself on all the things "big move" related….. I have no time for blogging, you see…..


… I really hope to see you all soon, maybe in the late August or September, when we'll be in our new home !!!!
I'll try to visit your blogs when time will allow me !!!!!

xxxx Alessandra

…..P.S. sweet friends, you are just wonderful!!!!! Thank you for all your lovely comments!!!

… and I even found the time, between a furniture sale and some packing, to finish my last crochet work …








I've followed this pattern using a 3,5 mm and making a foundation chain of 190 stitches !!!!
I changed the colours every two rows ( total : 12 rows ).

The neck warmer / cowl has a scallop edge on the side and various and colourful slip stitches to embellish the front of the work: both top and bottom show some picots and single crochet stitches to make them firm and more interesting!!!!

…. again xxxxx Alessandra

  5. Hi, Ale. I just found your blog recently. I'm Gertrude from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Sadly, you're going to leave Indonesia soon. I love the way you enjoy your neighborhood in Jakarta and you have scrumptious yarns, too! I wonder where you bought them in Indonesia. Or, did you buy them oversea? Well, have a great time to pack your things in boxes. See you!
