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 🙂

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.

The collar is not completely new, there is already similar cream in the shop. This time I got an order from New York for a white collar and I decided to improve the design a bit. I have to say that the effect have beyond all my wildest dreams, “banch of grapes” (that’s what I called the part of a pattern) is more prominent and looks beautiful. You can see for yourself. I’m not often fully satisfied with my works (perfection is my enemy), but this time I am.

In spring I embroidered Taurus painting from the Zodiac Signs series as a birthday present for my friend. I bought the diagram in the Etsy shop at Satsuma. The pattern is very clear, colours are wonderful, I enjoy each cross. Probably the Taurus on a black canvas would look better, but I already have problems with my eyes, for this I sew on the white evenweave with DMC thread. This is the result.
This was my first attempt to place the embroidery in the hoop and I must say that I am very pleased with the result. I watched a lot of tutorials how to do it on youtube and here are a few more photos of the back of this embroidery. I used white fetr to hide the back side of embroidery (unfortunately, I haven’t got an ideal back side of my cross stitich).
