Simple scarf

This is a simple garter stitch scarf, except for a purl row with a different yarn every fifth row. The mohair yarn is Fils anny blatt and the thicker yarn is Gedifra Rosas. I used circular 7 mm needles. Both the yarn and the pattern are from Fiinaneule in Helsinki. Mohair is not my favourite yarn, and that together with bamboo needles wasn't a very good combination.
Still, the scarf is very soft and light, and the thicker yarn gives it a nice texture.

Baktus Number two / Scarf Number four

This scarf I knitted on my way to and in Helsinki, whre I went for a training last week. It is a basic baktus, but with a cable on one side. The yarn I bought ages ago in Germany, I used 3,5 needles. Again, my baktus isn´t quite symmetrical...

Gabriel's wings

I finished my third shawl last weekend. The pattern is called Gabriel's wings (Ravelry), and I used one skein of Regia Hand-dye Effect and 3 ½ mm needles. An easy and pretty pattern. I like how the yarn looks, but I didn't like it that much when knitting. It got tangled really easily, and I had to cut it a couple of times, because I just couldn't untangle the knots.
