Triangular Weeks and Gourmet Weekends

 

Project: A Throw 
I also considered a shawl, a scarf, potholders and place mats but decided to make this a longer term project and keep on hooking until I have enough triangles for a most beautiful throw! These triangles remind me of our 8 years living in the Middle East.
48 Triangular Motifs finished, quite a substantial number still to complete
Pattern from Madder Triangles by the talented Amanda Perkins
Yarn: Vinnis Nikkim of course (but I am already planning the next project in  Vinnis Bambi)
Hook size: 4mm

 

Meanwhile, we spend our weekends visiting and enjoying Gourmet Food Markets and Food Festivals, Down to Earth Farm Feasts and Secret Eats. It is so exciting to be part of the Secret Eats group as we never know where the next venue will be and what the menu will look like.

Last weekend we visited an urban neighborhood Maboneng Precinct in East Johannesburg and had a great time at Market On Main, a food and design market hosted in a refurbished old warehouse. Here are a few snapshots taken at the market:


Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by!

  1. Your throw is going to be lovely! I have a longterm project on my hook as well, doing smaller projects just to keep it interesting..

    1. I try and work on one item at a time and for me it means that I finish all of my WIPs and fairly quickly too. However, with throws it turns out a bit differently. I limit myself to a restricted budget per month and always end up making smaller items in between until the next big yarn shop. I struggle to stash yarn as I just get bored with a stash and also enjoy living minimalist. It has it's downsides though!
