Finished Klässbol Linen Estonian Jewel

It's finished! I got obsessed with this yarn (thread) so I couldn't stop knitting. 14 days sharp, that's what it took from the yarn purchase to the finished and blocked shawl.

When I blocked it, it turned from something that looked like a dish cloth into the sheerest of shawls with fantastic drape. It's shiny too without being glossy. Absolutely a fantastic combination of Estonian knitting tradition and something that feels very Swedish to me.

Värmland, linen and knitting thread again

This weekend I took a trip to Klässbols Linneväveri. Among other purchases, surprisingly, I came home with another cone of yarn (thread). 1-ply, pure linen (not my normal preference, one may think but...) just look at this! It's my heritage, it's from my beautiful Värmland and it's just gorgeous. I had to start test knitting immediately, and the result is absolutely beautiful! A shining lustrous crisp sample of my Estonian Jewel pattern. I just have to complete this one!
You can keep on travelling the world, but I find everything I need at home.
