Here is a shawl that Sara just finished. It’s called Nurmilintu and the free pattern can be found on ravelry. It’s a mix between lace and garter stitch. This is a good pattern if you’re new on knitting lace, and want to watch tv while you’re knitting.
Wonderful design and super soft yarn! I am a bit worried though since it sort of stretched out a bit just wearing it for the photos. I don’t want it longer! I want it to stay exactly like this foreverrrrr!!!
Since my gauge match the pattern I have used suggested needles: Needle Size: US 4 (3.5mm) straight or circular needles for the body. US 4 (3.5mm) and US 2½ (3mm) circular needles for the neckband and sleeves. Pattern: Boxy by Joji Locatelli
Regarding the yarn (mink!) I am a bit suspicious about how the minks are treated… Googling it they say that they use special gloves to comb out the hair and that it isn’t painful for the animals. Sounds good but I am still a bit suspicious…

Last Saturday we all went to Lund for a little yarn trip. There’s a yarn store called Sländan. And yes, they have lots, and lots of stuff you want to buy. Maybe not the fanciest yarn in the world, but a lot of things (good stuff) to a pretty good price.
And of course, we had fika. We went to a place which I actually can’t remember the name of but they had really good sour dough bread and lots of other tasty things. You wanted to try almost everything, it was that kind of café.
We also went to the flea market on Södra Esplanaden and Jesseca found this really cute mug for her husband. We love everything with cats on it, right?
