I`m not sure which way I will wear it but It is really warm and I love the colors.

Just in time for this cold wind and snow I finished my first shawl. It is called Heidetuch and I saw it on one of the German knitting blogs.I added the ruffles along the neckline to hide where I changed the yarns. When I went shopping last week I found this awesome purple coat and it matches very nicely with my shawl , was on sale and got a discount because it had some threads pulled so I had to buy it.

This is a German Butterzopf which is like a sweet bread we eat it with butter and jelly for breakfast. Lots of butter and sugar but so good.

Today is a good day, I was able to sew and knit this morning and made 2 bread doughs. First I baked a German Farmers Bread with a nice crust.

Another Sunday morning and I have just finished a block that belongs to Simona in Italy. It is a black and white DYB RR( do your block round robin) and Simona asked to use only red for her seam treatments.
