Dream on…

It’s third attempt to make this tunic. Hopefully last one🙂 Tried top-down two times, now it’s gonna be opposite way. Fingers crossed🙂 So I will not show whole project until it’s done and I’m happy about it🙂

Nothing difficult, by the way. Just can’t get picture in my head out on needles.🙂

I’m not sure, if that ice-cream helps to make a decision, but it’s absolutely delicious! Reminds me about childhood summers.

Lazy me! Just checked – last entry in blog is from January! And it’s April now!!!!! Actually wasn’t so lazy in knitting. But can’t say, that worked much🙂 Just few projects done. Meanwhile lots of struggling about ideas and how to make them real🙂

How you can work, when spring IS here? I have no idea! All those flowers, colours, smells, sounds!

Happy New 2016!!!

Last year wasn’t very active in knitting, so I really hope, that this New one will be more active, with more heart and soul (and, of course, body) warming projects🙂

IMG_0132

This is first project of this year – started at Boxing day, hope to finish in a week. As it’s still on needles, I will not give away any more details🙂 Only thing I can say – yarn is absolutely amazing!

So…. HAPPY 2016! And – see you soon!

Amazing La-la:)

IT is FINISHED!!!

The Amazing La-la shawl, made from 5 skeins of Debbie Bliss Luxury silk DK (Circus). 100 metres in 50 grams. Pattern was from Ravelry LaLa’s Simple Shawl, but I changed it a bit. Gauge, of course, and then at the end, not five garter stitch rows, but seven. Looks bit better, I think:)

Knitted with 3mm circular needles,

001 (1)

And those fantastic colours! It was absolute pleasure to knit it, thanks to silk and colours:)

At first I thought, that it will be a Christmas gift, but now I have changed my mind. This stays with me!:)))

And again – yarn was bought in Wool for Ewe. It’s Debbie Bliss Luxury silk dk, 100% silk. When the SALE advert come into my sight, this yarn just screamed – take me!!! So I listened and took five skeins of it (100m/50g).

~~~~~~~

Tikmeer, kameer izkristalizeesies doma par vakar pirktaas dzijas projektu, uz adataam ir cits skaistums – Trijstuurveida lakatshalle.

Njammmmmm

It’s an absolute delight to get something so fantastic, so soft feeling like this – IMG_0038

Just got some treat from my favourite shop in Aberdeen – Wool for Ewe.🙂 And showed my Begonia swirl to girls there. So happy and friendly place!

Well, but the story is about THE Yarn! It’s a whole stand with these yarns in different colours. You can’t choose just one of them! It’s like mission impossible! I know – next week I will go to buy another ball of this, just in different shade. Maybe that grey-tone, maybe the green, maybe blue… who knows, which one. They are fantastic! And the yardage says it all – more than 700 m in one ball!

And I think, I know the project to work with this yarn already:)

This summer was a really scottish – with weather changes every five minutes and mostly raining. So I had enough time to knit and even read! (I read one fantastic book – The Book Thief – or I’ll rather say – I ate it)

I made a few pairs of socks, shawl and started some other projects… just found one absolutely inspirational place – Wool for Ewe shop in Aberdeen. So cosy, so friendly, so amazing!

IMG_1773

That was my first purchase in The Shop, but definitely – not the last!

What else can I say? Well – I AM BACK to active blogging!:)

Ziema naak, vai zinies:)

~~~~~

My head is full of ideas. But problem is…i need more hands, eight at least🙂 Need to finish at least one WIP, need to start few more. Need to visit my local Hobbycraft store and find more inspiration. But most of all – cant’t wait monthly goods market, where one man is selling georgeous 100% wool yarn. That white one is absolutely delicious!

WIPs at the moment:

Winter is coming…
