Springtime Bandit nr. 1
It was quite tricky starting this shawl because I really didn´t get the first 7 rows! But after meeting RodPrjonar in a small Café in Álafosskvos, who showed me how to do this it was really simple! Thank you RodPrjonar! :-) The pattern is really nice: simple and quick but at the same time really beautiful. It took me about 2-3 days to finish it and I was not knitting all day and night.
Of course, I used my own hand-dyed yarn for this project. The 2 orange shades come from onion peel and the yellow (at the end of the shawl) from Rumex longifolius (Njóli). I really love how the colours look in a shawl and now I´m totaly hooked on knitting shawls with this yarn - I´m afraid everybody I know will be getting a shawl next christmas!
