Time is definitely not standing still this year. It is February already. And a week into the month already.
It has also been a pretty crafty time so far. I have received beautiful yarns, some in swaps, and some that I bought, and some from my stash that I caked and got ready to start knitting them. 🙂
The dark blue yarns were some of the yarns that my son in law brought home last year. It is from Frisenvang in Copenhagen, and they get all their yarns from alpaca breeders in Peru. The yarn is hand spun and naturally dyed. It is so very soft.
The seagreen yarn was from my swap buddy in December, in the #SAFestiveswap. I loved the colour so much, I could not put it away, so it was caked rather. I have a pattern ready for it too.
From my stash I took out these 3 pretty pink 100% Cotton Lace yarns dyed by Colourspun, that each is slightly different from the other. They will knit a pretty fade from dark to light.
And since I could finally get my hands on the “Fynbos” colour from Hartlam Yarns, I ordered two skeins. 🙂 which I have caked too. I am keeping my eyes open for a pattern for them.
The blue has already been cast on. No surprise there, as I just love blue yarn, and I had been gifted a gorgeous scarf pattern by Marianne at Frisenvang, specially for this yarn. It is a very dark yarn, so I can only knit mostly during the day.
That was then a good reason to cast on the pink cotton for a small crescent shawl with a pretty and very easy lace border.
New on my needles
My leaves cowl is just about done, just the ribbing and some blocking to complete this lovely project. I really loved using this yarn, and since I have a bit left I may knit something extra with it.

Happy crafting all.
