So, first up is the WIP picture of my Necessities Sampler by Little House Needleworks. Started Saturday November 15th in the cabin with the girls. I am changing the blues to reds since red is much more my colour than blue. Pardon the wrinkles, I am stitching it in hand and will not press it until it is finished.
First half of Baggy Bolero that is being knitted for myself. Working in the second half right now and am almost to the last increasing.
Pattern: Baggy Bolero found here
Yarn: 1 strand Einband in black and one strand Plötulopi in dark purple
Last night my friend Guðbjörg came over with bags full of delicious yarns that she was selling for a friend of ours. I bought the following.
Schoppel Wolle: 420m = 100gr – 25% Nylon 75% wool. Out if it I am going to knit this scarf, featured in Lopi 29.
I am going to knit a shawl out of these two delicious hanks of wool. I have not decided on a shawl yet, but am browsing Ravelry like a crazy person these days for some inspiration and ideas. Have my eyes on a few, but nothing has been decided yet. Besides, I can’t start a shawl until after Christmas sometime.
