Yarn, lovely yarn

I was in need for needles in size 3.75 and didn’t have any (apart from the ChiaoGoo set that was in use) so I ordered a pair by KnitPro Zing with a 80cm cable. I really like the Zings. So to get the most out of the postage I ordered some yarn with it and one favourite of mine is the Cascade 220 fingering yarn (100% wool, 50gr, 250 metre). I have a shawl in mind made up of three colours, black being the main one (not a colour but you know that) and then I wanted purple and yellow this time instead of lime green because I have made one in dark grey, purple and lime green not long ago. But when I saw the magenta one I did get some problems of picking that one or the purple one, so I bought both to see how it will look in real life.

Then another top favourite yarn is Malabrigo Lace (100% Baby Merino wool, 50gr, approximately 425metre) and I have been for a long time now wanted to knit with beads, so I bought some beads to go with them as well.

I have a strong feeling that both of these will be the Pyttipanna Shawl and the Blue one is for me but the red one I might have made for someone depending on how it goes with the beads.

Pärlor

Att tillverka saker med pärlor har jag tyckt om sedan jag var mycket liten men det var först 1990 som jag började själv att ge mig in på detta och jag har ett stort problem med detta. Jag har nämligen svårt att avsluta alsterna och då menar jag låsen på smyckena och alla trådar som skall döljas som blivit över vid avslut och början på ny tråd. Så de flesta jag har liggande hemma är halvfördiga alster, men jag har några klara. Här är några smakprov på vad jag pysslat med.
