Meadow Grass // Samhain 2016

Hi, my dear readers ♥

October was a busy knitting month, because I was participating in three Knit Alongs at once =D
                                   ○ "Meadow Grass" shawl - KAL with czech yarn shop Vlněné sestry
                                   ○ "Building Blocks" shawl - secret Westknits KAL
                                   ○ "Big Jim" shawl - Winter Cozy KAL organized by Letesknits

I managed to keep up and finished all of them on time and now I have three new super-pretty shawls ♪
Ready for winter, I would say !

The first one finished was "Meadow Grass", beautiful semi-circle striped shawl with lace edging ♥
As main colour I decided to finally use this cute pumpkin orange yarn which I got from my dear friends from Nürnberg ♥ it's from German shop DyeForYarn
Contrasting colour is cool black&white Shelter yarn from Brooklyn Tweed (I loved the yarn since the first time I saw it in the shop and I was just waiting for an excuse to buy it =D)
As always I ran out of yarn before the end, so I had to finish it with black Drops ...

Also the Shelter yarn was shorter than the recommended yardage for contrasting colour, so I decided to do the striping wider towards the end ♪

I'm super-happy about the result !
I finished it on Halloween/Samhain so we took some witchcraft-themed photos right away ♥

Speaking of Samhain, here are a few photos from the magical evening,
because I haven't posted any altar photos in a while ♪

Have a magical day, everyone ♥
