Another finish

Last two weeks we really had summer in The Netherlands. I spent my second vacation week mostly knitting and spinning. My husband bought me an early birthday present. He knows I love knitting and spinning and during my vacation we ran into a lovely little spinning wheel. So he asked me if I would like to have it as a birthday present. Of course I couldn't resist and so I ended up spinning on my terrace for the rest of the week LOL
The first result is this skein of Old Rose. It is about 35 grams, 167 yards. 50 grams left to spin.
And there is another finish, a shawl, Life is But a Dream. the pattern is Merriwether by Rae Gronmark. I used a hand dyed yarn by Wol met Verve and two skeins of Madeline Tosh.
I love the way they match!
And of course there is another project on the needles. Flight of the Owl. A lovely pattern although it took me some time to get the hang of it.

And then, all of a sudden, I have a two week long vacation. And it started with a fabulous weekend at the Breidagen Rijswijk, where I was a knitting doctor and in charge of the children's activities. It was a weekend full of meeting friends, wool and knitting supplies.
After that DH and I went on a trip to Berlin, were we spent five days.
Now, back home again, spring finally is here and I spent this morning cleaning the terrace. And I have some time to show you two finishes and a new project.
Just before the breidagen I finished my Penguin Rock'n'Roll shawl, designed by Anna Maltz, aka Sweaterspotter.
In Berlin, I finished my first pair of gloves, No Bananas today. It was cold in  Berlin, I really  needed some gloves!
And then I started a new project, Life is But a Dream. Design Merriwether by Rae Gronmark. 
And to show you we really were in Berlin and I realloy cleaned the terrace this morning, here are some pictures
