Getting ready for the cold …

Winther accessories … As the temperature falls I’m knitting hats, cowls, shawls and socks for myself and Polly – little projects that’s quick to do and nice opportunities to experience with different techniques and yarns :)

Kid Seta by Madil Yarns, colorway: 926 + Lace by Malabrigo Yarn, colorway: Frank Ochre

This is going to be the softest most beautifully colored shawl ever  ♡

A strand of kid mohair and silk, held together with Malabrigo Lace 100% Merino in the shades of ochre, yellow and a little bit of olive/lime  …

Can’t decide upon the right pattern as the yarn is so georgous, but I guess it doesn’t really matter as long as it includes knitting …

Finishing the shawl

Though I only missed a few rows of My Swedish Summer Autumn Shawl when we headed back home from our vacation, it took me three weeks to finish it. It only felt right to work on the shawl in front of the bonfire and not back home in the living room …

Eventually I succeeded and I love the colors, the variegation and the smoothness of Malabrigo Sock ♡ The jagged edge is not intentional though, but it’s really hard to pin 106 inches straight :)

My Swedish Summer Autumn Shawl

July 25, 2011 § Leave a comment

I’ve been looking forward to making this for quite a while. Lovely Malabrigo Sock in warm Autumn colors. My summer vacation in Småland was a perfect occasion to start this. A straight forward shawl is mindless enough to bring on vacation. I’m glad i did. It rained for the whole week. Very autumn like, and I would have finished it if it wasn’t because I had to rip back as I changed my mind for a size large instead of medium.
