On my needles

Hello my lovely readers,

It's so humid here in my part of the world.
We have had rain and thunderstorms in the past weeks.
This weather makes me very tired!
I hope of cooler weather.

I'm still working

  on my summer blanket.

I have begun a new blanket.
I will use all my leftovers yarn from different
projects from the past years.

A knitting jumper for me.
I use my lovely Alpacca Yarn from Drops.

Another shawl in pale green.
I use silkwool for the shawl
slowly grows row for row.

What have you on your needle?

Have a nice day,
