Nytt sjal og nostalgi fra den brun/orange perioden / New shawl and nostalgia from the brown/orange time
My husband and I got married in the summer of 1975, actually 35 years ago. So we started our first home in the middle of the brown and orange-colored time. Everything should have those colors, no white interiors at those days :) Among the wedding gifts was a lot of these colors, like tablecloths, bread cutter and waffle iron. The latter is still in use, works perfectly, though it looks a bit worn out. We also had orange curtains in our first home, and the couch was brown and orange / yellow:) Was it then strange that I fell for the yarn I now have knitted shawl from? It reminds me of the happy newly married days :)
Jeg fant noen rester av det første serviset vi hadde, men koppene er borte. Og en emaljert gryte. De matcher da sjalet bra ?
I found some pieces of the first dishes we had, but the cups are gone. And an enamel pot. They match the shawl well, don't they ?
Og så litt mer info om selve sjalet. Det heter Leaf and flower shawl og er designet av Linda Choo. Mønsteret fant jeg på Ravelry. Jeg har strikka det i Adee Long på pinner 4. Det er et stort og godt sjal som jeg skal varme meg med når det blir høst og vinter og kaldere igjen.
And then some more info about the shawl. It's called Leaf and flower shawl and is designed by Linda Choo. I found the pattern on Ravelry. I knitted it in Adee Long on needles 4. It is a nice and large shawl that are going to warm me when it's autumn and winter, and become colder again.
