A day to the mountains. The road trip itself is already a treat.
On the way we took a little break for a verbena tea at the local 'tea cafe' at the river Ourika.
After a bumpy ride we arrived at the most beautiful place to hang out with the cool crocheteers.

Project of the day; a crochet cover for a suitcase size stool.
After a delicious lunch we finished our 'crochet class' by the pool, had a swim and lazed with crisp clear views of the Atlas Mountains!

united colors

United colors of the 7th Cool Crochet Workshop edition at Chambers d'Amis.

Unpacking the huge wool bags from our stock and making a new workshop display is always a fun way to get started...

On the first workshop day, we make an introducing tour in the Medina, to show our guests the way. During this walk we always visit 'wool heaven' to expand the wool stock to everyone's wishes.

Back home after 17 amazing days in and around Marrakech!

We had two terrific workshops with lots of adventures and wonderful women.
This is a photo report of the second day of the Cool Crochet workshop, when we went to the desert.
The light, changing skies and views were astonishing!
Project of the day; a crochet bikini top, what else?
Marika from Sweden won 'gold', she was the first to finish her bikini top in no time!

A desert day with a lot of fun, good food, drinks, music and dancing in bikini tops ánd a whole lot of animals (horses, camels, scarabeo's and Ank's puppy Flip)

Altogether beyond beautiful!

PS: Lost my phone in Marrakech and unfortunately couldn't post on Instagram since the 12th of May. So i've been offline for a while (actually quite relaxing). My new iPhone is on it's way, so soon i will be back on social media.

s l o w crochet

slow crochet les turtles

I'm off to Marrakech.

From Wednesday - Monday we will travel in and around Marrakech with our wool baskets to experience new adventures.

I'm looking forward to stay in Marrakech for a long time and absorb all the colours, sounds and flavors.

We will start on Wednesday with the 7th edition of the Cool Crochet Workshop and I can't wait to meet the new fellow crocheteers (from Belgium, Canada, France, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Sweden and Switzerland) and to see old friends again.

After a week of crochet travels we will start a brandnew g r e e n adventure with the 1st edition of the Green Gardens workshop; #greenisthetheme

So no new posts or updates on my blog for a while, but you can follow our adventures on Instagram @woodwoolstool and #coolcrochetworkshop #greengardensworkshop #woodwoolstool #chambresdamis ...

Au revoir!
