Last weekend summertime started here. I love the long evenings that go with that. Let's hope now that summer really comes now. The beginning of summertime also means the end of our laceschoolseason. Our teacher had organised a trip for us to Volendam, to the museum there. The different versions of the local costume were on show there and of course we were very interested in the lace caps. After visiting the museum we had coffee together. Ik heb een poos niet geblogd, maar dat betekent niet, dat ik stilgezeten heb. De SSS oftewel Spring Shawl Surprise is af! Hier ligt de sjaal in het sop, met een paar strengen handgesponnen wol (Romney en Clun Forest)
I haven't blogged for a while, but that doesn't mean I haven't done anything. I finished SSS, or Spring Shawl Surprise. Here it is in the soapy water, together with two skeins of handspun wool (Romney and Clun Forest) En hier is de sjaal dan. Voor de foto even aan de deur gehangen.
And here is the shawl. Hung on the kitchen door for the photo.
When two things are finished one has to start something new. Here is the first clue of Mystic light, made in silvergrey handspun merino.
