At this month: more socks. 4 to 6 is my monthly goal.

I found nice fluffy wool (light brown/beige and pink), which might be good for the second poncho.

Also I should start to plan something for my mom for the Motherīs Day (itīs at the May but better start early). Not sure what to do for her. She has already tons of wool socks, so maybe shawl or cotton sweater for summer if I find suitable yarn for it.

Wow, a good reason to go to the wool shop again. Very Happy

I started today a sweater for mom. Colors are light yellow and white. I am using acrylic/polyamid yarn, itīs quite light and airy texture and not so warm than if using wool. It might be just suitable for the cool summer evenings.

I visited yesterday in the wool shop and found wool for the next sweater:



Yep I know I have a lot of wool already but who could resist those big, soft wool balls?

I agree - would have been too hard to resist. Just about impossible to go in wool shop and not buy!

And they know it in those shops for sure. Those are like traps for us. In here the local supermarket I visit weekly has also a marvelous wool section. I canīt understand how easily my steps always go to there.

Itīs some sort of magic I think.

Shocked

That wool looks lovely. Looking forward to seeing it knitted up.

5 socks and two and half sweaters at this month. Not bad at all.
