A few skeins of unwanted sock yarn held together with some lace. It was straight ahead, using a simple top-down pattern I’ve used so many times. I had a few issues with the stripes as the amount of yarn in each color pretty much directed the arrangement … Basic and comfy sweater that will be used a lot, but not a big deal really …

… and a single merino/silk from DesignClub.
My local yarn store is selling out as they are moving their business online. Sad, as we need those stores, to physically touch and smell the fibers. There was a discount of 50% on selected yarns, which brought me back home with a beautiful collection of Rowan fine tweed and felted tweed DK. I’ve always had a soft spot for the colors and feel of Rowan’s tweed. It’s beautiful, don’t you think?

… and three pink palm tree buttons:
That was it! :)

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 …

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 :)

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.
