ah, the witch!

I have been blocked "slightly" by a back problem.
So no much happening for me, except a wonderful weekend at home trying to recover. And as everything bad always comes with something good, I had a lot of time for knitting!

Now, I have some FO to show, but of course no photos, so just resist a bit: as soon as I get back some mobility, I'll be able to document my progress.

The photo is from two weeks ago, when we visited the fantabulous Genoa aquarium. I think it is appropriate, as I'm floating through space, trying to avoid tricky movements (though most of the people would say I'm a bit stiff, rather than floaty).

a birthday present

Two days ago we celebrated S. birthday.
I managed to finish something for her I'm very happy with!
And she did like it.

The pattern of this shouldrette comes from Vogue Knitting on the go - vintage knits, it is very easy and comes out absolutely well (rav link).

I used Mondial Merino Plus (52% wool - 48 Acrylic) and 6mm needles.

The colours are beautiful, and the shouldrette was very well received: it really fits well and will warm her up ... next winter!
