It grows...





I think it´s autumn already. I mean in my mind. I went to shopping today and even all the summery dresses were -50% off, I wanted to buy yarn. So I did.

I have wanted to knit this Lehmus scarf (designed by very talented Sari Åström) for a long time but I have always been too busy or up to something else. The pattern is easy to follow and the leaves are just so pretty. I wanted to try it with little thicker yarn (I have done most of my bigger scarfs using mohair or something very very light), so I was very happy to come across Finnish yarn manufacturer Novita`s yarn which is 65% wool & 35% bamboo. Feels like silk, it´s wonderful to knit and it was on sale. It´s always great to get something Finnish, even for a one little project.

I´m off to knit -happily doing my k3, yo, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, skp, yo, k3´s probably until the wee hours. Have a great Tuesday!

P.S. This yarn was also approved by my adorable nephew (10months), he dropped the cheap-acrylic-also-included ball immediately and would not let me pick it up again. What a wonderful and wise boy, I must say, biased or else.
