Spring is in Germany



Went there on weekend to see some friends and escape from our beloved child for one night. It was hard. Especially for mummy as it turned out when we came back, our happy child probably didn't miss us a bit the whole time his grandparents were spoiling him with their love.

The Noro vest is getting in shape, now, run out of Noro, I am trying to figure out how to continue. For some reason I am imagining dark blue for the back and if I make sleeves, then I want them pale brown. What do you think?

Cathedral in Budyšin (Bautzen), Ober Laussitz in Saxonia. Curious area with a Slavic minority - Sorbians - that fights for its language and culture to survive.

Isn't that what grandparents are for, spoiling grandkids with love? I wish we had grandparents or relatives near us.
I would probably consider a lighter color for your sweater, dark blue may flatten out the brightness of the other colors. How about that light purple in there at the top for the back?
Your photo of the cathedral is magnificent. Did you use a tripod or just ... go 'click'?

Oh, spring flowers! I'm seriously starting to miss them.

Your vest is going to be pretty!

Maybe you are right, Francesca, with the colors, I see your point how the dark would flatten the front piece. I still don't know, though.
My husband took the picture in the cathedral, just out of hand.

Merulli, I do miss it too, it was in Germany, the flowers.
