Yes! I did score some lovely yarns in Göteborg.
('Cause that was were I was.)

ByHaafner, linen yarn, pastel, Ghanaian stool, organic cotton
^ The naturel, powder pink, greyish, very dark brown and yellow/gold linen are from Strikk. This shop carries its own beautiful line of linen yarn.
The silvergrey linen on the left is Kalinka's yarn (it's thinner than Strikk's) and the two smaller, blue skeins are organic, hand dyed cotton.

They had buttons too. :-)
And really, which catlady who loves her veggies and fruits,
could resist these tiny(!) cuties?

Also I spotted quite some crochet in the wild.
Like on top op this pram - very stylish.

And in the period rooms of the City Museum...

In short, a lovely weekend indeed...

  4. Oh Sweden, you lucky devil! My friend lives in Göteborg and the last time I saw her was in Linköping 2 years ago. I love your Ghanaian stool as much as the yarn you picked up. Now that stash in the love retro cabinet - I think I need to visit you for a holiday tee heeeee! Great yarns and what may I ask will you be making?
