more venezuela and lovely gifts.



i have received lovely elsebeth lavold: silky wool from peggy . my name was drawn in her blogiversary contest. and peggy has made lovely little tags with mine and alba's names on for future knittings. they are incredibly cute and the perfect colour choice for me.


and speaking about colours. a few days i simply had to knit something absolutely mindless and came thinking about some scarves i knit in alpaca and lifetime ago. it is a tube, knit in the round, and kitchenered together at each end. so now i am doing one to match (well not quite) the venezuelan cap. i am planning to do some fair isle with bird/eagle/llama motifs at each end to make it a bit more latin american than it already is. i cannot believe i am doing this. i am not really a sucker for colours of that brightness. but at least they keep me awake....

Love the scarf idea! I'm agree it's not something I imagine knitting or ever wearing, but it must be fun to play with the bright colors.

I'm glad you like the yarn and tags. I tried to make tags for Albert and Carl but the sewing machine kept jamming and I wanted to make the morning post. I'll send more when you run out.

Well THAT is colour!
I love Elsebeth Lavold's yarn. I wish you most fun with both projects. One is maybe a little bit crazy but I look forward to see the fair isle part. It can bring a little bit of subtelty in the whole.
