French view

Not bad eh? Like the view? Here’s where I’m blogging from right now 🙂

I spent a week with the in-laws in France and had the luxury of great weather 😀 (while it was pouring back home :P) So I didn’t spend much time behind my laptop but decided to enjoy the view 🙂

It took us a while to get here so I spent some quality time with my handspun skew in the car 🙂 The picture is a bit blurry but I’m hoping to master the art one day 😉 Unfortunately for me I don’t have any 2.0mm dpns so I won’t be able to finish this sock on the way back, which also means I will nt be able to start the other one either..

I really had my doubts about the yandspun yarn, because (you may remember this post), but it turned out a bit overspun and at some points a bit too thick or too thin. I’m still unsure about the durability of the yarn/ sock, mostly because it’s my first handspun sock ever and I have no idea what would be best. Also I believe BFL is rather soft and I’m not sure if it’s a good choice for socks 😛

I’m happy with the way it’s turning out, even if it means I have to wait a bit longer for this one to be finished 🙂

I started my Haruni a few days before we left and managed to work on it in between sunbathing and restaurant hopping (lol)

It’s Jaggerspun Zephyr in bottle green and the more I work on it the more I fall in love with the colors 🙂 I do have to say I find the leaf pattern so far rather boring so I can’t keep knitting it like I can work on the sock, but it’s still a good mindless knit 🙂

I find the yarn a little too airy for an unbeaded shawl so I decided to add some beads I bought at Lazuli: a very nice beadshop in Delft. I bought two bags (1,50 a bag… how cheap!) from each color because I’m not sure how many I’ll need 🙂 But I can’t wait to get to the beading part 😀

Not quite visible on this last little picture is the charming village of Domme 🙂 (somewhere behind the clouds). I’m hoping to have a better picture when I’m at home 🙂
