With this shawl it was love at first sight. Usually I am quite good at putting possible projects in my queue on Ravelry and then think about it for a while but when I saw this shawl and I saw that there was an actual yarn kit for it, I couldn't resist and I had to order it right away. It was my first order from the USA and I wasn't sure how long it would take to get here. I was very pleasantly surprised that the yarn got here in only a little more than a week.
The yarn is a dream to touch and to knit. It's very soft and the colours are just as beautiful as I hoped they'd be. I think this combination is going to be so great with the kind of clothes I like to wear.
I started knitting this shawl on my first evening in Tschiertschen on our winter holidays. In the beginning there were only 6 stitches and progress went so quickly that I was scared that there wouldn't be enough project for the whole week. But then the shawl gained more and more width and in the end I had to take it home again and needed a few more days to finish it. Nevertheless this will always remind me of the mountains and I am sure I'll take it along next year.
Today we had almost spring like weather in Switzerland. It wasn't very warm yet but it was sunny, so we were able to go outside for a few photos (thanks again to my lovely photographer girl ;-). Afterwards we hurried back inside because it's not really t-shirt weather yet.
