I finished Birch yesterday and wore her in the evening when M and I went to the cinema to see The Holiday. It was very warm and cosy. Unfortunately it's a gift so I wont be able to keep it.
I'll post a full picture as soon as she has been blocked and the sun comes out. I've been crazy with Kidsilk haze lately. Part from this knit, I've also started a sweater in Kidsilk haze, a purple color and the Kata shrug is in progress, though that lace pattern is taking much more time than the Birch did!
My sister gave me two balls of kashmere-like yarn in Christmas present, and I'm thinking of making myself a shawl of it. I only have these two balls, they don't have any information of name, yardage etc but it's much thicker than Rowan's kidsilk haze. Do you have any suggestions of lacey shawl patterns?
I also want you to notice the lovely bluish background color. We're using our third room for our creative hobbies; the room is packed with different paint, mosaik, instruments and other music stuff but it has been incredible dull. Not at all a creative atmosphere! White, hardly pattered wallpapers, ugly floor and left over furniture. During the holidays I've painted the walls and suddenly the whole room looks much better. I'm making some other small changes and as soon as I'm finished and have cleaned up here I'll show you some before- and after pictures. The color on the walls isn't as gray as it looks in the picture, but the yarn color is accurate.
