I just couldn't resist (again)

In the end of July the family when to Gotland and of cause we had to visit Mejeriet.My intention was to only look at ceramics, not yarn. I lost - or thinking of it I think I won. I just had to have these hanks with me home. The are very much autumn for me. I have no idea what to do with them. Just looking at the colors make me happy now.

Winged shawl

In the Interweave Knits Christmas magazine I found the pattern for the Winged Shawl.
I bought the Drops Alpaca silke when it was introduced at Litet Nystan, with the purpose to make it as a thank you to friend. I added beads and I like the result.
The pattern was easy and the yarn very nice to knit with. The adding of beads (with a hook) was a bit tricky, the yarn feels a bit too thick.

The best thing it the the reciever was happy with it.
