Summer love


How are you? (have you seen the new blogger's dashboard?) and how was your summer? Mine was terrific! Some weeks ago I visited my sweet cousins at Aigina island! We did some catch up, we cooked together, laughed, swim, rest by the sea, had a blast!!! ♥ We did enjoy some mornings with a cup of coffee and chocolate croissant. nom nom! Aaaand we did some knitting by the sea! As you already know, Marietta and I, like to crochet or knit anywhere (literally at any place!) One place I haven't tried before, and was found out to be pretty awesome, was the beach!!

My younger cousin wanted to learn how to knit, and I was more than happy to show her, while it happened that among the sunscreen and the underwater masks, we've packed needles and yarn. The scenery was ideal and so.... we started knitting lessons at the beach! It was a little crazy but most of all relaxing!

what's your top 5 strangest places you've ever tried knitting or crocheting?

The perfect photos of me and my younger cousin Marietta (yes they have the same name with my sister Marietta) were shot by my older cousin Marina, a very talented architect and bon viver! Thanks for everything girls! Now that I am back in Athens I'm trying to enjoy myself until I get back to the crazy life of autumn. Double Crochets will soon start meeting again in Athens and new projects are about to begin!! Wherever you are, find some time, grab your needles or hooks, choose a nice pattern and let's spread the thread! September is here, autumn is at the door, we'll soon be wearing socks, warm pullovers and drinking hot tea while we knit! But summer isn't totally over yet!! let's keep some summer in our hearts! 

big hug


  1. Looks great! I once did a knitting project; strange places I knit included at the university of technology (imagine me trying to look convincing as a beta student while knitting) and in the train (mostly the elderly lady closeby seemed amused).

  2. I havent attempted to knit/crochet in a strange place yet. But once i do it, i'll make sure to let you know! :) Also, sounds like a great summer!

  3. Aww, this post made me so happy! It looks so beautiful and fun to knit on the beach! I hope you had a great time!

    One of my friends just returned from Athens for her honeymoon and had the most beautiful photos! She said it was the most amazing place she has ever been, and now I really want to visit Athens! :)

  4. @Mariëlle hehe, yes knitting in train, how easily ladies nearby feel happy about it!!
    and knitting at the Uni-- i know the feeling!
    i'm so jealous of some Universities that have knitting clubs!

    @Dimi <3 waiting to see your next project!

    @Katie thank you!
    it is great to knit by the sea,where else do you like to knit?
    Oh and when you visit Athens,make sure you come to our crochet/knitting meeting on Fridays! we'll be more than happy to meet you!
