Grey Finnsheep = Luxury knitting

by Svipser27. December 2013 21:04

Some weeks ago, I stumbled upon Woolgrey on etsy, I am so glad I did! Shortly thereafter I received 2 beautiful skeins of Lahja, which means gift in Finnish. And a gift it sure is. This yarn is amazing, soft, sturdy, delightful to the touch and an absolute DREAM to knit! When they say "Finnish luxury for knitters and spinners" it is nothing short of the truth.

 

I knew I had to knit a shawl with this yarn, and chose Peppernut by Bonnie Sennott, I was drawn to the mix of texture and lace (and a little by the name, which refers to a Christmas cookie :)

 

 

 

 

 

I love the finished shawl...and I absolutely hated knitting the nupps...I don't think I will ever knit nupps again! The patterns is perfect though, clear and with good charts, I highly recommend it.

 

Go now, visit Woolgrey and help preserve this special and wonderful breed of the Grey Finnsheep - I'll be back for more, I can only imagine knitting a sweater or cardigan with this yarn - Uhh joy!

I don’t just love to knit, I need to knit. Every. Single. Day. Sometimes other people benefit from my addiction, but usually what I knit is meant for me.
