Panda Passion

Panda Silk DK Fan Shawl in Drops Delight

I know it's been a few years since this shawl was popular and it has been taking me a while to block and shoot, but I adore this pattern. I am amazed of how wonderful the yarn turned out in this project. I want to knit one out of my homespun. I think I'll just do it. I only have one more skein to ply :)

Christmas is over...

...a new year to come.

As every year, my best moment is making gingerbread houses with the children. They probably don't like it just as much, 'cause I do not like to be disturbed when decorating ;)

I hope you all had a wonderful christmas and was given soft yarny gifts!

Lady Marple @ Work

note the fab german shortrows

Well, see it as a contribution to the feminist debate if you like. Knitting doesn't always have to be displayed in the princess cuteness environment.

I made tons of mods, noted in ravelry.

And now I'm looking forward to see if the yarn is of the quality I am hoping for.

I'm totally into embroidering on knitwear nowadays.

Who would have thought that a cheap yarn like Drops Delight could turn into something so beautiful?

Now it's time to knit one up in my own hand-dyed, handspun BFL/silk. Perhaps using different modules. We'll see.
