hidden in the forest


Oh, it happens all the time! After finishing some exhausting things, I always seem to knit a shawl with stripes. And I've done it again... Striped shawl must be my idea of relaxing.


This time there's even a bit (a lot!) of kitschy feelings in this one, but I love that! You know, clumsy childish "trees" knitted in "lace" pattern. Tasteless and shallow, yes, but I love it.


And one more thing - the "striped shawls for whole family" -project is not all forgotten! I have finally made perfect, perfect plans for the little fellows...

Oh, I love it. Bright green, big and gives hope for summer. Haven't really seen summer yet around where I am. Loved the kitschy trees. Will you come around with a pattern? I am finally hooked on knitting shawls.

I really think you need to stop designing such fabulous things. Because I cannot knit fast enough and I want to make everything :)

So, stop. Or somebody please teach me how to knit more rapidly.
