The last day of summer............

Empty beaches, rolling waves, sunshine, long walks, ice cream, great company and a beautiful lighthouse all in one day makes it easier to prepare for the long New England winters. 
Together with my sister visiting from Europe I enjoy every minute of the beauty of these warm fall days which feel more like summer.

Stonington Lighthouse CT
I love lighthouses. This is a particular cute one.

I couldn't resist...... buy this skein of  Ellyn Cooper"s Yarn Sonnets.
It started out very innocent (as usual). Ellyn gave me a leftover of this yarn to play with, and I fell in love. This dream of color named Jasimine Dragon (color Rose Collage) is a wool-cashmere-silk blend. Suddenly I found myself in the middle of a new shawl design.
Soon I will be able to send it to my newly found test knitter, Barb. Test knitters are a rare but very important species of knitters. I'm glad that Barb is willing to test knit for me.

Other than that I'm planing on translating my patterns into German, finish some other designs
(three of them) and work on socks for Wool Aid.

Secret revealed

Friday the last clue of the Mystery KAL went out to the knitters. Now the secret can be revealed.
I'm very excited about my new design and the pattern will be available to buy beginning of this week.
