A few weeks ago, while I was reading Hege's blog I found the link to Mauds Garn in her side bar. Of course I followed it, even though I don't understand Norwegian, but one can look at pictures, no? Well, I found a picture of this gorgeous shawl, and I wanted to make one with the same colorway very badly. As you can see, I'm now proud owner of some more yarn, which came with the shawl instruction in Norwegian. I don't think I'll need it though. It's a very basic shawl, made beautiful with the yarn and the crochet edging. I'm not going to make the flower though, but I like the tassel. If all that would not have been enough, through a mistake, I got the yarn just for the cost of shipping, and even with my pointing that out to Maud several times, she let me have it. Wow. Another side effect of ordering from Europe is, that the parcels arrive faster than from the US or even within Canada, it's unbelievable, but true. I'm looking forward to knit up this lovely shawl. Hope to get to it very soon.
