Hi, my dear readers ♥
I'm back from London and it was absolutely amazing *o*
I saw every Potter-related thing (except the Cursed Child), we had nice summer weather and took 10000 photos =D ...so it will take some time to make post(s) about it ♪
For now, here are ancient photos from summer which I totally forgot to post !
In June/July I decided to participate in KAL (knitting along) of a small Czech knitting group on FB. We chose new pattern "Close to you" from polish designer Justyna Lorkowska.
I have to confess that I didn't like the pattern much at the beginning, but then I found this nice green yarn (Malabrigo Alcaucil) in my stash and thought that maybe I could try adding some wooden beads and yeah... I like it A LOT ♥
Beads in knits is my new favourite element and I plan to add them on anything I can !
The shawl was easy&fun to make, nice medium size and you need only one skein of fingering yarn ♪
I took the finished shawl with me for a picknic we made in Westpark ♪ It's a nice green park in Munich with Japanese garden, Thai temple, Nepal pagoda and Chinese garden - a lot of nice photo locations !
I found the Nepal pagoda best for my shawl ♪
The dark-brown wood matches perfectly with the yarn and beads.
I couldn't stop starring at all the beautiful carvings *o* it's a lovely place !
also the Japanese garden where we had picknic was beautiful ♥
...and Chinese garden
family photo :3
I hope you're all enjoying the beginning of autumn, it's finally starting to look like one !
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
