I'm actually still not allowed to do any handicrafts until my wrists are fine again, but since it's summer and I was bored, I just couldn't help myself. Inspired by this blog, I made these crochet earrings:
Yarn: Novita Tennessee
Pattern: my own
Since they were really easy to make, I decided I might as well share the instructions here in case someone else would like to have a pair of these.
Row 1: 27 dc around the earring.
Row 2: *Ch 4, skip one dc. Insert hook in next dc and fasten the chain with a dc. Dc in next dc* Repeat from * to * 'till the end of the row. Fasten and weave in ends.
During the weekend I went horseback riding with some friends. This was the second time for me, so I was actually a little bit nervous at first, but it went fine. We even went for a small walk following the road. Fortunately all the horses were really kind. They just kept following the leader so all I had to do was sitting there and enjoying the ride. And it was fun! I could have taken a longer ride.
The place where we stayed was very pretty and idyllic, so I also got inspired to photograph. Here's a few of the photos I took during the weekend:
One of the horses at the stable had a foal that was only 3 days old <3
