My feet never felt better than after an opportunity to "tread wool" at Skansen this afternoon. Fulling is the correct word in English, isn't it?
I managed to add to my stash too: two shades of grey of a wonderfully soft blend of wool, angora and alpaca. Perhaps mittens with a pattern inspired by this carving?
Or simply stripes - like the twined mittens mentioned in my previous post. I do have a soft spot for grey and another one for stripes.
I thought I'd post some photos of the tweed sweater I brought to the archipelago too. It's finished now and perfect instead of a jacket when it gets cooler in the evening. I've only managed to capture the colours in one of them, so here's a close-up to begin with:
The edges are patterned too, a k2 p2 spiral. It's easy when you knit in
the round and have a multiple of 4 stitches plus or minus one: the
spiral will come automatically.
Last, some more shades of grey from the Wool Spa:
