My first attempt,in the middle of the book, to do twined knitting is very interesting but every stitch takes time.I'm very happy for this way of doing a very good a good quality as you always use 2 strands of yarn.We use z-twined yarn,the common yarns are s-twined.My goal for the rest of 2015 is to do a pir of mittens,hopefully with embroidery on.I'm going to do them in Wåhlstedts z-twined yarn I have bought on my visit in Dala-Floda.On a flee market I bought this pair of mittens,made in thin white wool with a pattern in black you can find also in weaving and embroidery. here you can follow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dw224mGWYs how to purl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoNXpBuM9PM how to knit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTFriAeaqq0 how to do "krokmaskor" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujmc7HKTejM In my first attempt I have made all but not "krokmaskor"

Easter 2015 was the Sakura time for example in Japan where I have a part of my family and some friends.I really wanted to be there but instead I was at home relaxing and trying to get rid of a flu.In my stash I had an embroidery,half done,I had bought from Tradera.Yes, Easter is a perfect time to do small handicrafts in the morning before you are going on a walk along the river.We already have a lot of daylight too. The embroidery is designed by someone in Denmark 1986.It's made on linen fabric with cotton threads.I really enjoyed this mostly made in pink colours. Wish you all a nice weekend
Some days ago this lovely pincushion in sashiko embroidery came to my postbox.What a great surprice and what a wonderful gift in a style I really love.I'm trying to learn more about sashiko and about indigo so with this I have got new inspiration to go on with.Thank you so so much dear Sharon.
