Easter Holiday

Yesterday I spent a big part of the day among friends in a countryside house. We ate, knitted, chatted and were given advice on knitting and sewing matters. Our lovely host had baked the most delicious bread with nuts and fruits in it. Yum! She also helped me to take photos of my new Kaleidoscope vest. I've used Schachenmayr's Cotton Bamboo.

Wrong season? Yes - some projects take their time. Here is my Stripes to keep me warm. The neck is too long for my taste and it feels huge around my shoulders, but when I look carefully on the original pattern I can see that it's not a slim fit there either. I was inspired by Ilsefin to make this cowl.
Christmas? No - but very red. When I saw the Stockholm Scarf at Knitted Bliss, I knew I had to make it at once, so I just whipped up some old Fritidsgarn from my stash and started. I love the pattern with it's cable-like stitches.
A balloon helped me with blocking this Whale Watch Hat from the book "New England knits". I made the hat with leftover yarn from weaving and from making long-pile rugs, so it's rather stiff and coarse.
The subject is a bit blurred because I'm not at all good at stranded colourwork patterns. Sometimes the floats are too tight and sometimes they're too loose.

Glad Påsk!
