decided my new shiny macbook deserves a crocheted cover. using the crocheted "fabric" meant for a (normal) bag for it. had a sort of cushion insert made as i am not much of a seamstress.

bought the only pure wool that was available in black in a shop we passed with a friend on our way to have a coffee. i am not amazed with it but it is not bas - just normal wool, more on the lighter, softer and quite elastic side.
first swatches did not turn out good enough, trying some holding double yarn. not sure

finished an übersimple drop stitch scarf for my mother - it is made of a very light blue merino wool (soft, fluffy but it knots a lot, not recommended for colorwork:)
the pics dont do it justice (one does not eve look blue:)), bad light, will try to get better ones.
it was a nice, mindless/hypnotic knit, and it added up quickly. a nice beginners or holiday project. it took just hours to make really.

Inspired by the new Patrick Wolf video Damaris, *I am knitting a scarf in various shades of grey to almost black.
It is not as beautiful or romantic as the song or the story behind it but I'd like to think it has some kind of charm nevertheless.
*about in the middle, a character is resting her head on a pillow with grey and white patterns.
