Speckles shop update

You'll find some handmade drawstring pouches made by me.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you like it!


Here we are, a week and about to start the weekend, how about your week?
I have been working hard to update the store, just something to finish and I hope to update tomorrow 29.8.14 with new products!!!

I've also had time to knit something for me, like this hat and anything more than I have in the queue.

I found this new app, stash2go, I think it is quite useful and addictive, for example, when you go to buy wool with a project on mind or like me on the train looking for patterns ...is an app for Ravelry.
Ravelry (sigh)  .....my pending issue!


Whenever I start a new project I think, now is when you should hang on ravelry, because it is useful to keep track ... but quantifying things is something wrong with me.
I do not know if it's because this app that I have come forward to update my profile ... but what I have to do now... searching for all my projects? start from now? I do not know what I can do, I don't propose anything, because I don't fill up! we will see...
You can find me on Ravelry, I'm aldila.


After our holidays my plants have undergone some changes, some for good, some not so good.
Some were more beautiful than ever, new leaves, more green and shiny, others however, seems dead .. after a little pamper seem to go back again.
I've also brought one succulent stalk from my mom's garden.

A new pair of socks for sale in my shop.
I am working slowly and carefully on other objects
I hope soon upload them.


It's been a while since my last post, I know I promised to write from Spain, but my old computer (now I know why I bought a new one) decided not to work.
I really enjoyed the good weather, the company of my family and friends and good food!
There, I knitted a lot, I finished my pink shawl, I received a wonderful package from my dear Anu and a new toy came home. I'm starting to spin. It's exciting! but step by step, everything takes time, Anna :)) it's funny because Alessandra started to spin too!
I visited several stores and bought wool in Barcelona (obviously) some skeins of wool.

Now here, don't stop raining and it's seems that autumn is coming, it's amazing how different is to my home town, there no one raises that autumn is coming

I've started a new shawl ( I'm a shawl girl), with a new ( for me) Norwegian alpaca, I really love this wool.

visit Melody's giveaway!

beautiful and inspiring blog of my dear friend.



I finished Red Socks and I cast on a new pair, I don't follow any pattern, for now it is what I like the most knitting. :))
My shawl grows slowly, but try knitting a little every day.
Tomorrow we fly to Barcelona, ​​be our vacation in our "other" home.
These will be the two projects that I will take with me and I'll spend some time at my parents's garden.
It will be my main attraction.
As we will spend several weeks there, our plants have had to be adopted, are all in the office of my boyfriend, his partner will take care of them. It has been hard to see how the apartment was empty. This morning was the last, my oxalis ... no!!!
When Claudia sent me the stems, one of these was separated and I planted it in another pot, now is nearly or greater than the other!! these it'll take with me tomorrow to my mother.
Hopefully my next post will be from Spain.
Happy summer days!!!


Tomorrow is the last day of class, so soon my vacation will start!
On Sunday we went to have a picnic to the park, is exciting in only 10 minutes from home have these huge green meadows. It was a beautiful summer day, but on Monday autumn came, It has not stopped raining and it is cold ever since, I find it hard to get used to this "summer".
I have started a new pair of red socks and finally my purple shawl is finished!
The last photo are my flea market finds.

I can not stop listening this new album, everything she does is so delicate .. ohh I love it!


I have disappeared here for a while,  I've spent a few days in Spain but I'm here again, come  back to the autumn Munich and come back to the cardigans and socks..

A day before leaving , came home a lovely surprise package from my dear Vibeke, she has knitted a lovely alpaca shawl for me, oh my god, I feel so lucky, it's perfect! including another small details, and a delicious tea.

I found another unexpected package in the mailbox when I arrived. Ann-Kathrin sent me all those little balls of wool for my blanket's project

and thoroughly explained what she has done with each wool ball. Thanks for contributing to my little project. it's magic!

That's my new oxalis triangularis, after Claudia sent me a small stems, I found it at flower shop, these strange things happen!

I've just finished a pair of socks and almost done my violet shawl.
