fuck yeah!

so there is this thing on tumblr called "Fuck Yeah___insert anything__" and it is a way to find a tumbl-blog that posts stuff only related to the ___insert anything___ topic! Two of my favourites are: "fuck yeah crochet goat" and "fuck yeah knitting alpaca"! As you can tell they are memes about crochet and knitting , and they write funny facts and stuff about them!

Here are some of my favourite (sorry for the image overload but it was pretty hard to choose only these)

they are hilarious! 

You can check the blogs of crochet goat  and knitting alpaca for more! Me and Panagiota enjoy reading these together, it's so much fun if something of these have happened to you before...
In other news, our followers on tumblr got 100!! (105 today to be honest) and we are super happy...! Check our Double Crochets tumbl-blog, it is some kind of an inspiration board and a place to collect stuff we love and motivate us. You can follow if you like!

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
