Yarn, Yarn, yarn and more vacation

Here is almost all yarn from the trip (the white is not present!)
On the left (green and marron, black is the Wåhlstedts, as well as the tied bag of rovings on the lower end. The to opened plastic bags are mohair. In the middle is the Norsk Kunstvevyarn (close up below). Im moving into the blue turqoise green, with some purple, lime green. You need a close up? Ok. Favourite is this mohair. Just have a look!
This is the great mohair. Just soft and wonderful. Ahh. Älands mohair was the name, a part of Nordmohair.
I love the Swedish summer. Im actually busy like nothing else, but it is vacation - and having quality time with the loved one is so valuable. No, no sailing - to be honest, none of us like to sail in "kuling" (stormwinds) and thunder. We are very safe sail beginners.
So instead. It is a new tour planned. Tivoli in Copenhagen (and yarnshops ;) and Lousianna, some west coast.. and Ahh. Wonderful Sweden. So you will have a very quiet blog here for (A WHOLE WEEK) or maybe week-and a half.But as always. Plans can change. Isn't the colour palett so summer. I especially think the older mohair is what I thought was mohair. But compare this left yarn with the yarn on the left a bit up. Really a difference. I stillfell in love with this, so it doesn't matter, but the kidmohair is definitely yummy. Ahh. It is so great that other yarnlovers understand the mania about this. My idea of paradise is really a room with all my yarn around! I'm living it. Knitting will be a great adventure. So, figuring out what I should do with this yarn will be a great "sketch and think"- exercise. Have a great summer. I'm thinking of my knitting friends all over the world. Isn't that just fantastic that our passion bring us together all around the world. I so much would like to meet you and knit toghether. See you!

Fantastic beautiful yarns. Especially the mohair yarns. I am so happy that the petrol and teal colors are in now and in the autumn. They belong to my favourites too.
Vaction is when you can do what you want, sail or not sail depending of how you feel in the morning:) I think I will have to order some mohair...

BM hälsar tillbaka! Visst är hon såååå bra som lärare - tillåtande. pedagogisk och med självdistans.

Garnet ser underbart lockande ut. Du har en fantastisk förmåga att hitta lite ovanligare garner!
