FO: CheChe

Another finished FO, something I never though I would make and from the yarn I wasn't particularity keen on... In the end I think it was destined to become a CheChe, a lovely shawl I actually do feel like wearing those days ;)

Small things

that make life brighter ;)

There are no new pictures of knitting today, they are all in a complete UFO state and not yet to be seen. Instead are some lovely vintage things I have recently purchased to spice up my wardrobe. The shoes are absolutely stunning and should go very well with some of my vintage bags and hats form the early 50-s, late 40s period. All purchased at etsy And photos are courtesy to sellers

FO: Peacock Tail and Leaf Scarf

Finally a proper FO! A spontaneous project knitted on a whim of inspiration. I love Nancy Bush designes and so her recent book Knitted lace of Estonia isn't an exception. This scarf is my second project from it and I have to say it is most definitely not the last. I fell in love with this scarf from the start but did not have any green coloured yarn in my stash, so one day last month I was looking at one of the blogs I am often reading and there I saw the yarn! It was a beautiful shade of green, beautiful yarn, so I quickly went to etsy shop got the desired skew in colour Marigold. And not only it is simply stunning it is also entirely organic!
So the yarn came in two weeks ago and very quickly I could not knit anything else. I guess there is no need to say I LOVE the end result and have been wearing it daily through last week. More pictures of the scarf are on my Ravelry page
