Eureka!

IMG_4064I´ve long wondered what to transform this yarn into…

It´s been brewing on my shelves for several years, and just like that, the perfect project popped up! Love it when that happens! The timing could have been better though, considering my current project(s)….

mslogoThe yarn is «Pan» from Telespinn. Telespinn is a Norwegian spinnery, placed in Flatdal in Telemark. They spinn their own mohair wool, from their own Mohair goats. They provide a lot of nice reading on their web page. Check it out for yourself (in english). I can also recommend their «Mari» yarn.

The great pattern «Tyrolean Stockings» by Ann Budd was published in 2007. www.interweaveknits.com-buddfront300_mediumThese socks will be perfect in «Pan». Can´t wait to cast on.

On the needles…

I seem to be in a Veera phase…

I´ve just finished another «Secret of Change» shawl, and are working on my 3rd «Still Light» tunic.

And again; it´s gray. I´m working my way from light gray in the «Modern Garden Cardigan» to light, light gray…

You can follow my project at Ravelry here:

I´ve just got 25 cm of utterly boring stockinette

before ribbing, and the the arms. If I even

consider another project at this point,

this tunic will never finish.

Wish me luck:)
