Close to you

Woo! I finished (finally) the Close to You shawl by Justyna Lorkowska. It's a free pattern on Ravelry and very easy to knit. Although I love the end result, I couldn't really get myself into knitting the shawl. I started very enthusiastic but it became a w.i.p. for more then 5 months. Maybe that doesn't sound like a long time, but for me it is. When I really enjoy a shawl pattern I can finish it quickly but the constant simple repeat was a bit boring. Maybe I would have been more enthusiastic with some challenging lace in the pattern. But whatsoever I love the end result! The yarn is very pretty and handdyed by Treliz from Greece. The idea of this yarn drying in the sun of Greece after being dyed made it extra special to knit with.

The week flew by and I was busy so I had no time for sewing at all. But I still want to cut out the fabric to make a jeans. Maybe I'll take a go with it now? I don't know, maybe. And otherwise sometime this week in the evening when I have some spare time. We'll see.

So I hope you all have a lovely week, and I will be posting very soon!
