Vintage, retro, old and new

I spent a very productive weekend crocheting. And knitting. And stitching. Yes, knitting… although Riaan took one look and asked me if that was how it was supposed to look. So, although I’ve known this for a while, I will not knit anymore. Well, not the ‘normal’ kind of knitting anyway. I’ve been experimenting with some vintage wool that was given to me by a friend and I have high hopes, but no pictures yet. Here are some pics of what I was hooking, though:

And if that was not enough to make me feel very happy indeed, I’ve finally got a new toaster. One that pops up slices of bread when they’re done. No more forgetting about the toast and coming back into a kitchen filled with smoke – do you know, you can smell burnt toast for days and days and days…

Oh, yeah, and it’s a gorgeous, retro pink.

Maggie also entertained. She loves the dishwasher:
