Salamanca shawl – finished

Happy Monday! 

We had a long weekend here in Queensland and so I worked all day on my shawl, using the beautiful wool I bought in Tasmania. 

I used this pattern, based only on the graph I found on Pinterest (couldn’t be bothered reading it!) 


I used a pretty small hook (3 mm) so my motifs look way smaller obviously 😁 

But I like the overall effect and it will be big enough to keep my neck cosy (I’m intending to use it as a scarf rather than a shawl). 

As you can see it looks already better when it’s pinned for blocking, compared to before. 

And here is the detail of the motif, it’s a bit wet as I just sprayed it for blocking 😊

I’ll try to remember to post a picture of it around my neck! Hope you all have a great week!

With love

A nice hiatus in Hobart

Hello readers! 

Did you miss me? I certainly did miss you! I was at a conference for work this week, and I got to visit the beautiful city of Hobart, in Tasmania. 

The conference was pretty great, and we even started the conversation about gender equity and women in STEM sciences, which is about time. 


Another very exciting point for me was that I got to buy some gorgeous 100% Tasmanian wool. And it’s also hand dyed!

The colour is “Salamanca”, which is the artsy area of Hobart, right next to the leisure harbour. That’s also where I got this wool from 😊

I think I’ll make a shawl/scarf with it, as I lost my scarf on the plane on the way there. 

I wish you all a great weekend
