OOAK Scarf

Yesterday I put into my shop very long scarf, hand knit from 100% hand dyed Italian merino wool. The shawl is unique – one of a kind – because it is imposible to repeat the colours of the wool. I bought it during “Drutozlot” in Toruń, where a lot of yarn producers were prezenting their threads, from very talented artist from Gliwice . The wool is so soft and warm that you want to wrap yourself in it and never go out again 🙂 What is more, my favourite colours were used in it’s dyeing : teal, turquoise, light blue , foggy white with some purple spots too. The scarf is very stylish, and modern, suitable for a person living  in a big city as well as in the countryside. The lenght of the shawl is 2 metres 6 cm, width – 68 m. It took me 65 hours to knit this shawl!

Shawl is made of 500 grams of wool. There are still 3 more skeins of 100 gr each, so I’m going to make an Arrow scarf out of them. So, shawls topic to be continued 🙂

Furry Tales – Medieval Fun

A few weeks ago Kate Worthington  announced that together with dizainer Lucie Heaton organize free Sal, which they called Furry Tales – Medieval Fun. Every Friday the members of the group received a pattern and after 7 weeks I can show you the finished stitching. It was a pleasure to stitch these wonderful creatures in the Medieval style. Very funny and cheerful, no matter who they are – a King, a Quenn, a Princess, a Knight, a Wizard or a Jester – they evoke a smile on everyone’s face. Here are some pictures of the process. DMC threads, Iridescent Evenweave 32 count.
