Did I ever mention the air conditioning at work?? Well. If I didn't that is probably because it isn't working very well. Most of the time it is do cold. We have people that are using blankets, wheat warmers, some are working with their coats on and I have even seen fingerless mittens. It is totally crazy. We have people coming by and meauring things and trying to adjust it, but it usually ends up with nothing new...
And working in the office, you really need to stay at least somewhat neatly dressed. There are still a lot of dark suits running around, so you can't wear a Lusekofte, pretty as they are, to work.
When I came across this supersoft worsted yarn from malabrigo in the colour Blue Graphite I decided that this is the thing that will warm my shoulders this winter. As I said it is really supersoft, and thick enough to give you that cozy feeling. I have a couple of shawls in mohair. They are warm enough, but don't give you that cozy feeling. As usual when we buy something here in Sweden that is from other countries it gets REALLY expensive. I found it online for $11. I bought it in my LYS and paid well over $22.
I just did garter, but instead of just going back and forth, I decide to do increases so that the shawl got a nice v-shape instead.
