A few days ago I showed NightInGail. Now she is blocked and I want to show her dazzling beauty.

No stitching at all ....

This week was busy!! Work was very demanding, so all I could do in the evening was sit and knit. Not only because I was too tired to do something else, also because I was determined to keep up with clue 4 of my mystery KAL. I succeeded, but forgot to take a picture.
The weekend I was busy as a volunteer at the Brei- en Haakdagen, a big woolevent in our town. For the first time in my hometown, so when they asked for volunteers I could not resist. That meant that I was a translater at a workshop, given by Carol Feller about seamless knitting. She is such an inspiring lady!
There was also time for me to follow some workshops, so I had much fun and I have new inspiration and knowledge on how to knit even more beautiful things.
Of course there were plenty of shops at the event, so I bought some beautiful yarn and also a cone of silk, so I could finally finish my NightInGail.
Here she is, washed and blocked.

A few more weeks ....

Yes, I think I need a few more weeks to finish my Plantation Sampler. There are some items I have to add. First of all the saying. I'll add another saying, to make this sampler mine. For now it is an empty space.
And then there is part three of California Dreamin'. I think this will be another beautiful shawl. You can't see the design quite clear for now, but when I spread it between my hands I can. Only that makes it difficult to hold the camera LOL
