Every year we are wating for "our" storks. Since decades we have had a pair of storks in our village. Now the storks are back. I will take a pic when the weather is better. It is raining all day :-(

What I knitted for my "Wollprinzessin"

In Germany we have something near to the "Secret Pal". We call it "Wollfee". I knitted socks and a shawl for my "princess".

The Pattern is from the group TownsendSocksKnitALong and I really love it!

This shawl I knitted in a feather-and-fan pattern. You can have a look at the wool here. I used Kauni EG. The wool is wonderful to knit. Unfortunately you cannot see the lovley colors on the photo as beautiful as they are in reality.
