It definitely feels a lot like Summer here. The gorgeous Spring days were a few and short lived. It is already very warm and sunny most of the time. I can hardly believe that it is October already. This year has gone by so very quickly.
My package to my swap buddy in beautiful Finland is ready for mailing. I was so happy to get to swap with someone from such a far away and beautiful country. I had a lot of fun knitting for her, and getting all kinds of local gifts and goodies ready. I will reveal the content to as soon as the package has reach its new home.
Granny squares and blankets have been featured so much lately, I could no longer resist the temptation to also work on one. I got myself the first lot of yarns, and since I love all shades of Blue, I decided on something with Blue and Gray with a bit of White. Now I need to decide on the granny square pattern I want to use, and then I am on my way to my very own blanket. Thank you to all the ladies for the great inspiration!
And I decided to knit myself something for Summer as well. This will be a light little sweater to wear on the odd cool day. The yarn is a silk and cotton blend. I mus admit it does not have much “give” in the knitting, but the bigger needles does create a nice drape. Will keep it pretty plain and simple therefore.
