summer lovin'

Hahaha song titles.  have yaself some cliche

Woo I started working on the Sweet Summer Rays shawl as part of my very first KAL.  To be honest, I can totally handle a more complicated pattern, but I like it anyways and I really want a nice shawl in this colour.


This is some of the fabled Wollmeise! It's the sock yarn, I think the "pure" is supposed to be better?  Anyway, this one has some great stitch definition, not particularly soft but giving me a lovely spongey fabric so far.

  5. Great colour. I have a stunning skein of Wollmeise that I still haven't decided what to do with - it feels a little indulgent for socks :D

  9. Gorgeous colour. I've had Wollemeise Twin for socks - it's not the softest, even after repeated washings but the colour is awesome, doesn't fade and the socks are very durable. And what a lovely shade you've picked!!
