This fall I started knitting a mystery shawl that is called Color Craving and is designed by Stephen West who designs under the name Westknits.

The beginning was special and impossible to imagine how the shawl would look when it would be finished.

But it was fun to knit. I used Icelandic yarn named Einband and the colors I chose were dark brown, turquoise and orange. I actually decided to go outside my color box and use colors that I'm not accustomed to using and never together but the result were very satisfying. 

But now I am casting off and almost done with it. It takes several hours to finish it because there are so many knitting stitches to cast of and of course this shawl has not an ordinary cast of but one that is with a pattern so I will take me looong time to finish it of. 

And then there is my January sweater. There is not much left of it. The plan is to finish the shawl and then finish the sweater. It should be done later this week.
