As much as I love wool, its scent leaves a lot to hope for, doesn't it?
Now that I have shared with you my favorite fragrances, I will share with you Tina's perfumes. During the summer and fall, when she roams the woods a lot, she always comes home with a strong scent of wild rosemary and during the winter, when she sleeps outside in her little house and she uses Timothy-grass as her bedding, she wears this strong scent. On a cold winter morning when she comes in to keep me company when I have my first cup of coffee, she always brings in this scent of summer. I think it is quite lovely, although it is very strong.
Ruusu has a strong liking to all kinds of wool. Whenever I take yarn out and spread it on the floor to see what to knit next, there is she, rolling in the yarn. She never bites my yarn, never tries to steal any, but always rolls in it!!
You came for the knitting and I have a beauty for you. I blocked her earlier this week and here she is in all her glory. Yes, the design is Anne's Ice Fantasia.
I think she has designed three delicate pieces that are faroese in shape and this is my second. The third one (Lacewing) is on the needles. I have not done much work on the last one, but it will get done. - I just checked Anne's site, there is still one more, that is Maplewing.
I used Wetterhoff Veera (100%wool) color number 421 with needles 3,5mm/US4 and I used little more than one skein. One skein is about 900m/984y.
Once again Anne's pattern was well written and easy to follow, a joy from the very first stitch to the last.
Wool with you,
