Happy holidays!

Is it really Christmas?
It seems like it was yesterday, I was back from visiting my family in Australia last year just a few weeks before the holidays and suddenly it's Christmas again....
I am almost frightened by how quickly the past twelve months have gone but I guess it means that life hasn't been boring for me lately.

Anyway, I want to wish all my readers a peaceful Christmas with their loved ones and a new year of good things!

Enjoy the festivities!

Scarborough Fair Shawl sneak peak

And here it is finally blocked!

Just over 120gr. of my favourite Lana Gatto laceweight wool in a lovely shade of sage green and less than one week of work at night time in front of tv.
The pattern is being tested by some lovely ladies from the Ravelry Testing Pool and will be available early next week.

On the knitting front, my favourite pastime has been designing and knitting scarves and neckwarmers, some of which can be found on ETSY such as Capuccino Scarf with pompoms-

Persimmon Neckwarmer-

A very versatile Mohair Scarflette - Neckwarmer - Shoulderette - that can be worn in different ways-

just to mention a few, and lastly another knit shawl in soft and warm lilac mohair.
