I just popped my first skein of handspun merino (2-ply) in a bath of onionskinsoup. I am not sure if or how this will work out, but it’s fun to experiment a little.

And now just wait…


1.5 hours waiting:

Made the Raha Scarf from the latest book from Nancy Bush Knitted Lace of Estonia for Hennie. It was a fun pattern to knit and I love how it came out after blocking.

The yarn is GGH Merino Soft, Color 94 from Penelope Craft

Yes, another FO! I bought the yarn for this socks at the Handwerkbeurs in Zwolle on the 21st, started these socks for Pepijn on the 24th, finished them on the 1st of March.

I think it’s stripes and colors are a ’70s theme, so I kept singing this Ed Harcourt over and over while knitting.

They fit Pepijn very well. I didn’t use a pattern, just a figure8 toe and shortrow heels. 60 st. in the round on needles size 3.
