Liebster Antwoorden in het Nederlands (Dutch Liebster Answers)

Further to my second nomination for a Liebster Award, here are the Dutch questions with my Dutch answers together with a list of other Liebster-deserving blogs.

Don't worry if you cannot read Dutch–my English answers can be found further down the page.

Eindelijk schrijf ik iets in het Nederlandse taal om de Liebster Award te eren. Bedankt Anne Vanderkerckhove. Zij heeft me genomineerd door haar blog Anne's Crochet Palace

Het spijt me dat een lange tijd had geweest - ik moet mijn verstand van het Engels naar het Nederlands veranderen - moeilijk als man altijd vermoien zijn. Maar vandaag ben ik blij en krachtig. Nu krijgen we de antwoorden van Anne's vragen. 

(Nederlands is niet mijn eerste taal - als je iets verkeerd zien, alstublieft vertellen! Dan zal ik het beter leren.)

WIP Project Bag: Progress Photos At Last!

Way back in January, I started work on a little bag.
A ball of multicoloured sock yarn (red and yellow mix) with a crochet hook stuck between the label and the yarn.  Attached to the ball of yarn is the beginnings of a striped bag.  All are resting on a photocopied page of the pattern instructions which shows a photo of the finished product.
I chose a variegated sock yarn from my stash
to highlight the stitch pattern.

Struggles with Blogger & Google+ Community Friend Connections

I need help with my housekeeping!

Blog housekeeping, that is; to link to the blog a friendly, private online space just for Lupey Loops friends to meet, chat and share with each other.

Now there is such a space: a Lupey Loops Google+ 'Community'https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/114403140403082646908

My problem now is to somehow connect the Lupey Loops blog 'Members' with the new Google+ 'Community' and your help is needed, especially if you would like to participate.

Access All Areas: Stairs or Stares?

I am trying to decide which is the greater barrier to disability access–stairs or stares?

Perhaps you or somebody else can be the judge.

Footy Friendships & Corporate Crochet

A Crows scarf with a yellow peaked cap resting on top.  The cap has a Crows logo on the front.  The scarf has horizontal stripes in navy, red and yellow with red fringing at each end.  One end of the scarf has an Adelaide Crows patch stitched onto it with membership badges pinned along the bottom edge.  The other end of the double-sided scarf has the words "Premiers back to back 1997–1998" machine-knitted in fair isle.

I'm losing my voice, 
My throat is hoarse,
But not to the lurgy–
From footy, of course! 

Let's just say I got quite excited at the Adelaide Crows' last home game for the season. There was so much to cheer about:

Lost without Lists

Today I find myself revisiting  Packing for Hospital as I prepare for another overnight stay in hospital while undergoing more tests.  I have known this was coming since the iron infusion but infusion was so successful, I have been living a bit of the high life while I can!
