Happy Easter!/Frohe Ostern!/Glad påsk!
So this is the Moebius-scarf I told you about in my last posting - I just managed to get it ready in time for our Easter holiday trip to Sweden!
And I've also managed to get the Kauni lace shawl for my mother ready - here it is, all in earthy colours:
Much of the credit must be given to these wonderful yarns, which I found lately: the four bright coloured ones to the left and in the middle are Schoppel yarns ('Zauberball'), then you see a Japanese 'Noro' and to the right a Danish 'Kauni' wool. They are not so easy to find at the normal yarn shops, but there are of course several online-sellers.
They are all mostly or entirely wool and are wonderful to knit with!
I wish you all a very nice and happy Easter, with lots of eggs (and wool :-))!
(German version: So, jetzt habe ich meine Osterschals fertig - mit diesen dollen Knäueln aus Deutschland, Dänemark und Japan - und wünsche Euch allen ein schönes und frohes Osterfest - mit vielen Eiern und auch recht viel Wolle :-))
