A new year with new opportunities

First of all I want to wish you all a happy, healthy 2017! I hope you enjoy my blogposts this coming year and I hope I can find the time to post more frequently.
The year 2016 didn't end with finished objects, but with a new project. I had some progress on Favorite, The pattern is Paulie, a design by Isabell Kramer.  And I bet this year I will finally be able fo finish my Call of the Raven.

At the end of the year I attended a workshop,  'Bakje breidzje' at Franeker. We learned about sequenced knitting and went home with a lovely gift. A big ball of hand dyed yarn by Loret Karman. This ball contains some hidden gifts and during knitting we would find them.
I started knitting a cowl. Hibernated, frogged, started a shawl. Hibernated, frogged and after adding another colour I am now knitting 'Dikke Tuut' (translation: big kiss, the name of the yarn). Below the process from ball to the final choice.
Favorite is another great knitting projects. It is knitted top down and I like how the wool/silk blend is behaving.
Pictures of Call of the Raven will be posted next week. I am in a group that shows the WIP every 10th of the month and I don't want to spoil the fun of that.
