fully finished fall shawl

the fountain pen shawl is all finished and dressed up with the pollika teardrop shawl pin.

it was such a joy to knit this through out the summer. the material so nice and smooth. every pattern knit was a surprise in how the color appeared. it truly became a piece of love when discovered after blocking.

fall is treating us with colors much like in this shawl. some golden leaves trickle of a what used to be a flowering shrub in the back yard. some plants stay green just a little longer and make gray fall day a little brighter.

Imagine a day at work where you surround yourself with unique Swiss designed shawl pins, gorgeous buttons created in Holland, oh so precious yarns from the UK, and fabulous high quality felt and felting accessories, plus wonderfully, eclectic, full of life and spirit fibre artists. Knitting, felting and crochet it happens all in Pollika’s world. Just so you know English is my second language, here and there my fast thinking brain cells get confused and infected with my first language: Dutch. So, most posts are going to be written in ‘Denglish’. The will be accompanied by Lesley’s photography talent, that likes me to believe they will be clear, inspiring and bring a smile to your face! We welcome your comments! Tina
