Virus Shawl

Happy Monday lovely readers!

I have finally finished my virus shawl using the beautiful Holst Garn Coast in Harbour, Marlin and Nimbus. I totally love those colours and they do really go so well together 😊

The yarn is also super nice to work with I really love the feel of it and it was great to work on in the plane as the pattern is super repetitive. The shawl ended up being quite big and I used all three skeins.

The pattern of course is the beautiful virus shawl. This had been on my list for ages, and I’m so glad I’ve finally finished it!

I hope you guys are having a great week 😘

Shop review – Yarn glorious yarn 

Happy Monday crafters!

Last weekend I felt a bit adventurous and decided to finally visit the yarn shop ‘Yarn glorious yarn‘. I had heard about them from a few different persons and I also saw them at a craft show last year but never really made the time to get there. Saturday was different, I finally stoped at the shop and I really wasn’t disappointed! 


The shop looks quite small from the outside but the inside is actually quite spacious. The people working there were super lovely and of course there was yummy yarn everywhere! When I came in, there was a class to learn to knit socks, and it was cool to watch for a little while 🙂 

Of course, I had to buy something, so I set my choice of this beautiful light weight merino/cotton blend. 


I chose a gradient of blues and the yarn will become a virus shawl eventually (they had a display one at the shop and now I really want to try that pattern). I was very happy about the price range at that shop, they had some great quality with an affordable price tag. I will definitely go back there for more 🙂 if you live in the Brisbane area, or you come visit, you should give it a go (the details are on their website, linked at the beginning of the post 😉) 

All the opinion expressed in this post are my own, I was not paid or compensated in any way for this review, just giving my honest opinion on a shop that I really enjoyed.
