ECXITED!!! Opened my Etsy shop Yaay! You can find me under OffHoursbyElvira

But what’s new this week πŸ™‚

Finished this week my lace shawl! Was nice sitting in de sun in the garden on Sunday to knit the last rounds.


knitting in the sun!

Trying it before blocking:   


 Then washing with Eucalan…. Soaking… Waiting…  Don’t you just love the shimmering in the yarn?

And then blocking… 

And then the waiting continues…

In the meanwhile doing a bit of math to calculate my next sweater… And trying to figure out what stitch to use. 

I have been trying to knit a new (for me that is) knitting technique – Brioche Honeycomb stitch. Not quite there yet, but it starts to work out. Only the two color with one color background I haven’t figured out yet 😣 

honeycomb one color and two colors

not exactly what it should be yet

honey comb two colors with one background color

Tips are very welcome!

Tadaa – till next week 😘
