Yesterday's walk led me to discover something unexpected. I went for a walk the usual way, but on the way back I took a different path. A couple of hundred meters from the usual track. I was surprised to find out that there was a sheep farm! How did I not know about the sheep before?
Maybe I could negotiate a deal for some wool..
But before that, I need to find out if great grandmother's spinning wheel is still intact and I need to learn to spin.

More of autumn


It's getting colder..

Farmers and birds have kept themselves busy this weekend. It's harvest time for the farmers and moving south for the birds. Migrating swans were having a break on a golden field and a bit later a wedge of cranes flew over with trumpeting calls echoing in the air. Days are getting colder and shorter. To prepare for winter I started my first ever mystery knit-along. It's a shawl by Veera Välimäki, and I've nearly finished the first part of the instructions. The next part should arrive on Tuesday. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out! My choice of colors is this:


September sun

Yesterday's sun is just a distant memory on this rainy, grey day.
New loop scarf from leftovers of Color Affection. A quick knit waiting for the mail and new yarn..


Color Affection III

Pattern by Veera Välimäki
Yarn: Hopeasäie Basic
(75% wool, 25% nylon)

I finished this shawl just in time! Well, in time for my next project, that is. 
In fact, it's badly overdue, as it was supposed to be a mother's day gift for mum last May..

Tomorrow I should receive new yarn which I ordered for Veera's new mystery shawl Varjo.
