In France it's SALE-time. In Paris you could see  many woman walking /running with bags  and bags....  Even the most expensive shop has a big sale.
I bought some yarn , beautiful 100% wool from Anny Blatt. Maybe for another Andrea's shawl, a present for someone?????
I also bought  merino/silk in a lovely brique color, I bought the cedarleaf pattern for this yarn.

Some pictures of the cedarleaf pattern.

  1. The scarves are beautiful. I especially like the green one. I can't stop scrolling down and looking at Lot though. I want to be walking those streets again.

  2. I love the rich fall colors of your yarn. And the leaf pattern on the shawl is just beautiful! I can't wait to see what you make!

  3. Hi again. We did not have any carrot cake at this particular tea, however my sister has a carrot cake recipe that is *wonderful*. It is a family tradition to make it for birthday parties at her house. Hope you enjoy it.
