a boo’ful december

I planned two projects for december I want to share with you today. Every month there is a knitalong in the lovely Boo group on ravelry. And in december it’s called “Ghost of the mKAL past” – so you can knit every past mystery pattern with the group.

I was a bit ambitious and chose two pattern, so this is something that will keep me busy over the turn of the year and into the new year I think. But I just couldn’t chose one of those two.

The first one i want to do is: Humbug
“Scarves and shawls are so amazingly versatile. Whether you have a snuggly winter warmer or a thin, outfit enhancing, accessory they are just so useful and can lift your outfit as much as your spirits.”

on the left my stash picture of the cashmere skeins, showing the lovely variegation between the soft pink shades and the more pastell ones, on the right three different beads, from top to bottom medium rose ones, in the middle some drops and some lighter pink ones similar to the top ones on the bottom

it’s a scarf pattern i really adore and I think this could be a really quick knit. I chose the most beautiful Lichtfaden Cashmere yarn I could imagine and some lovely beads to go by. Also I want to use drops at the ends of the scarf and I’m super excited about this project.

the second one I want to knit is: Be with you
“Most of the Boo Knits shawls have an air of romance and this is no exception. Be With You as a name was the starting point for the design of this beaded, crescent shaped, shawl. It has been designed to be worked in two colours each working with and yet complimenting the other – a perfect relationship. Though designed for two yarns, this shawl would look equally gorgeous in just one and can be worked in either lace weight or fingering weight yarn. The versatility of this shawl ensures that there will be a version that is just right for you and right for any occasion. Whether you wear jeans and a shirt or prefer a cocktail dress, this shawl can be made to be your perfect accessory.”

I adored this a long time ago and though I would never be able to knit such a beautiful thing. I love the two different textures and this shawl is really something I want to wear. For this project I chose Lichtfaden, too. (She really is my favourite ever dyer)

two caked pink cashmere skeins on the bottom, topped from a lighter pink skein of silk halo, which has a luminous glow and a lovely fluffyness. Both lay on the pattern, you can see a woman (Fiona I love your version!!!) with her Be with you over her shoulders, on top of it more light pink sprinkled pearls.

So yes – my december will be full of yarn.

AND if that wasn’t enough action for one month the boyfriend bought me a adventcalendar with yarn and a pattern for every day until christmas. How cute is that?!
I think I’ll make a huge blogpost on that too very soon. ❤

Have a lovely day and feel hugged if you want to,
xoxo
