My Wool Warehouse order arrived! (I had to flag down the postman.) Here they are, snuggling next to each other.
They’re Drops Karisma and Lima. I love them! I love their colour, their texture. Crocheting with them really makes me happy.

I kind of understand the meaning of “organic” now. Because that’s how my snood has been growing – without a pattern at all. A lot of the stitches are picked from Crochet Workshop by Erika Knight. I’m really happy with the result I get.
This is how it looked at the beginning:
This is the first time I work with pure wool. I just wanted a nice rustic mustard yellow at the beginning. This was the only one caught my eyes. I didn’t regret at all. That dark mustard yellow is one of my favourite colours now (as well as orange, light pearl grey, light grey green… I love all of them).
This is how it looked more recently:
It has grown quite a bit more since this photo was taken. I love randomly picking different crochet stitches from the book and just mix and match. It’s not finished yet. But I’m enjoying every stitch, not really in a hurry. This is not like me at all. I remember how I got really fed up with all those granny squares and baby blankets towards the end of them…
Do you like it? I might write the pattern out if you like it (and for future reference), but I should do it quick or I’ll never be able to do it…
P.S I’ve only shopped wools and yarns with Wool Warehouse so far. But I have no intention to go to other shops. Such straightforward and efficient service!
