Inspired by Pippi

She liked it!

Last summer I bought Muskat yarn at Marias garn and started a sweater for N. I took a pregnancy paus so I frogged it and restarted this summer.

I got inspired from the "Pippi sweater". Here I changed the main color and kept the stripes the same. I used a basic Rowan pattern I used before.

I used a version on the strips that I have on my Pippi sweater.

The next best thing?

If you cannot knit outside in the sun, winding yarn is almost as good. At least it takes me one step closer to knitting (or crochet if I follow my plan).
A very nice morning with A sleeping outside and me winding yarn in the sun.
The yarn is from my trip the other week to Gotland. The result (investment) looks almost the same as Toves :-).
The 5 in the from are from Gotlands spinneri and the 2 in the back from Mejeriet.
At home I regretted not getting more of the green instead, a crochet cardigan would be great. Next time maybe......

In addition I also bought some ceramics, the bowls from Mejeriet and the cup from Thord Karlsson. The cup is filled with coffee!

I just couldn't resist this one! The colors are so beatiful.

Oriental Lily ready

N is posing in the Oriental Lily dress. It shows that it's made with 3 different shades but I think it works fine. Just hope she likes it.
