Hi, my dear readers ♥
Let's talk about he second knitting project from my busy October/November ♪
This year I decided to join Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL for the first time !
Last year I wasn't sure about my skills, I didn't understand yarn weights and the Westknits sets were too expensive for me. This year I'm much wiser, but still broke, so I decided to give it a try but instead of using some super-cool-fancy yarn, I just bought new Flora from Drops - which is quite a good quality yarn for a very low price =D
I also didn't go for any shiny-neon-Stephen-West-like colours, but simple earth tones to match with my mori wardrobe ♪
Now a little explanation of what the hell am I talking about...
Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL is an event hosted by Stephen West every year - he designs a new pattern, you purchase it, but you don't know how does it look - only how much yarn and how many colours you need. You wait for the first clue. You knit the first clue and wait for next Friday for the second clue, you knit the second clue and wait for the next Friday... etc.
I had so much fun with this project and I even managed to knit my very first brioche - lvl. up !
I decided to knit the medium sized shawl, but it still ended up HUGE.
But it's really nice and cozy, so I'm not complaining ♪
Here are some photos we took on the walk in the centre of Munich ♥
I recently bought these pants and I feel so cool in them =D ha ha
I will leave the last knitting project post on January, because next week I want to talk about Christmas lolita meet-up and then do nothing, just be lazy, knit, read, draw and watch Christmas movies =D
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
