still knitting

Hi again, it has once again been a while since I have been here, and it's not because I am not knitting..because I am definetly knitting. I thought i'd just show you what I am busy here goes This is the springtime swirl
I don't really have alot left of this shawl, just 20 rounds with 640 stitches in each round, then I will be able to start the bind off...but that's a big job in itself.
Still, I think i might be finished with this shawl in maybe three weeks. After that it will be time to continue making Christmas presents and focus a bit on that. don't want to be in a rush in December!!!
Thank you for coming and let me know you were here
Big hugs

Drops jumper

Good afternoon people!

Since last time i was here, I haven't really spun much but I have been knitting.

In the summer I knitted a bolero, but I was NOT happy with the result, so I decided to make a winter jumper instead.

It was a really easy knit, and I enjoyed most of it:) The pattern is Garnstudio drops

The wool is New Lanark Double knitting, the main colour is called clematis, and the other colours were just some various colours that i had in my stash. Every time is go to New Lanark i buy a ball of wool or two:)

I was very surprised that the colours goes so well together and now I can't wait for the cold scottish weather to get here, so I can use it.. :o)
Thank you for visiting me, let me know you are here and come back soon!
