Matteo's fishing

                                        They were yummy


This was on quick knit... Cladonia by Kirsten Kaipur

                                     Yarn: dyed by Ilu
                                                      Lots of pins to lock it

                  It works perfectly with my daughter's dress

Thank you Karoliina for the pattern!

Tiong Bahru

I have a lovely friend Åsa ,whom I met through Ravelry and then met IRL for a coffee in Stockholm, who has become an incredible knitwear designer. When I first saw her latest creation I knew I wanted to make it for a special occasion.

A dear friend in Finland gifted me the yarn to cheer me up (Thank you Satu<3) and the yarn had been dyed by yet another talented friend Pirre... So you see this shawl is a real joint effort!

It took LOTS of pins and wires to block it but boy was it worth the effort! It's 150cm long and 50cm wide at the widest point and it's a lovely grey with just a teeny tiny bit of sparkle... I love it and will make another for sure!

Testing Fiinisti

I'm not a great sock-knitter... I could be but the fact that you have to make two... 
BUT I love wearing woollen socks so I was glad to  test knit these for tikru

Pretty pretty socks worked from the toe up... I like them!
