Crochet Turban

Stash Buster 6

We all had such a great week here in The Netherlands! After a couple of years of having a winter that just wasn't a winter, with no snow or ice, this year finally the temperatures dropped low enough and for long enough to freeze all lakes, ditches, canals and channels, so we finally could skate on natural ice! Skating fever took over because skating is in the Dutch people's blood. It's were we grow up with.

In my youth we could skate every year, most years for a couple of weeks in a row, but the last years winters were a bit limp. After almost a year now of staying inside as much as possible and seeing not many people, all due to covid (what else), this week of frozen waters and finally being able to use our skates after a couple of years, was no less than a present! We all needed it. 

For me it meant a lot more work in the operation theater, because I had a couple of night shifts, but I was just glad we could help everybody with fractures and such. After a strict lock down and a curfew the numbers of infected people and corona patients in the hospitals are dropping, so luckily there's room again for other unfortunate patients. 

My daughters and husband were skating every day, though. For my oldest, who doesn't like hats, I made a turband that came along in my Insta feed this week, just in time for this cold weather. For another project, that will appear here on the blog later, I bought a skein of blue Softfun Denim. What was left of it was just enough to make this turban.
