All done!

Yay, my new Revontuli shawl is finished!

Well, apart from blocking and sewing in yarns. Also, the colours don’t show right. I’ll need day light to capture them.

I used 141 grams of Evilla yarn. 61 grams of the skein were left unused. The patterns says the shawl takes up about 200 grams, so it’s a bit strange how I managed to save so much of it.   I’m thinking I might knit some kind of mittens with the leftovers from this yarn and the brown yarn I used for the other Revontuli shawl I’ve knitted. We’ll see how that goes, if I ever get around to it.

Speaking of mittens, though… Last Thursday I was a bit bored with big projects, and wanted to knit something quick. So I took some 7veljestä and Florica, and knitted this basic mitten, which is still missing a pair.

7veljestä is a lot thicker than Florica, but it the finished product you can’t really tell. This close up is a bit more revealing.
