I've been having a cold for most of this week, and worked from home to avoid giving it to my co-workers as well. Which means I've gotten a lot of knitting done too (as I've actually been a bit sick I don't feel guilty about knitting during the day :). So I've finished my Ishbel scarf! It's really beautiful, and is blocking right now.
I thought that I would use almost two whole skeins of the Kunstgarn, but I actually didn't even use up one whole skein. I guess I've knitted on very small needles (2 mm) for the yarn. The scarf is about 120 cm wide, which is a bit small, but I will use it as a scarf and not a shawl, so it suits me fine. I just wonder what I'll make with my other two skeins of this wonderful yarn? I guess I've told you before, but this is my new favourite yarn! I thought I had become somewhat of a yarn snob, and not liking acrylics anymore, but this yarn I love. It has 75 % superwash wool, and 25 % nylon, and I don't care at all! I love it.
I guess I have to start a new project tonight too. I'm not really sure what it will be, but probably a pair of gloves of mittens for me. It is starting to get really cold here now, with frost during the nights, and I could really need some new gloves. I have some gorgeous pink Alpaca yarn that I've been planning to make gloves from, so I guess this might be the next thing for me. I also bought one of Charlene Schurch's sock books, and I really have to make myself some beautiful socks soon, too. I also have some more shawls planned, which I might also start some time soon. Or a really thick and chunky winter scarf for myself? I'll have to think about this for a while, I think!
