Visit to Öland and Karin Öberg

I had plans for one cardigan in Kalinka 21,  but I also went home with additional supply of Kalinka to add to my resent purchase and also some Kalinka 41 to  be a cardigan for my little girl.

Boxy & Baltic

My vacation project us completed. I've knitted Boxy, a long time qeued favorite. I treated myself to luxury yarn and have knitted it in Mad.tosh merino Light.  The shade is named Baltic and it is  "tone in tone" with the Baltic sea in the background. I thought that it would become more narrow than expected but it grew a lot during blockning and is now as planned. For the first skein I did not alter between two skeins and it shows a little. There us also some pooling but I'm very happy with the result. I can manage with some cool nights.

Kalinka treasure on Ravelry

I was just browsing Ravelry to find projects and went to Kalinka to find gauge and found this on sale.
Lovely colors and I now can continue planning next project.
