I had a little yarn left over from light blue Haapsalu shawl. So I took a risk and started Ethereal shawl. I wasn`t sure there will be enough yarn for it:

And here is dark purple merino lace scarf with spirals-pattern:
And here is an other scarf from the book "Knitted lace of Estonia" by Nancy Bush. Pattern is just beautiful with those leaves, isn`t it?Here it is before trimming:
And here is an other one, very bright blue one. Pattern is "õnnelehekiri kividega" from the book "Haapsalu shawl". As you can see this scarf is with edge lace:
And there was some yarn leftover from the "leaf and peacock scarf" and I made a narrow lace. Then I noticed that the lace is almost transparent and I cannot really see the flower pattern. So I made an other lair in dark red, so that you could see the pattern better.
And the lace part was too small for something big (for grown-ups I mean), so I got some nice purple-black-red yarn to match it!
Here is again a knitted skirt:
I crocheted the waistline again. And then started knitting. At first I had the grey yarn, then added black cotton, and purple and green as well.
And then I made a bad to match the skirt:
My grandmother made herself once a jumper. But 30 years later it had a hole in one of the sleeves. And my mother is being brilliant ofcourse, and wanted to throw it away. But I managed to get it, and I changed it into a skirt. Jumper body part was a bit too short for a skirt, so I found that in my mother`s drawer was the same material, but in different colors. I crocheted the waistlinewith black, white and yellow:
So there was still some jumper material and I thought to make an other set, but this time in pink and red. The owner of this set already got a flower scarf, so therefore it was easier to make the bad and wrist-warmers to match it:
My mother put a nice grey jumper into a washer and it came out a bit too small. So I looked at it and thought what to do with it. It was in size XL, and after washer it was size XS:
On Saturdays there was a big fair in Tartu, Estonia for second hand things. And when I usually pay 5.90 for merino lace (100g, ca 1500m), then there I found this merino material for 10 euros only:
In July it was very hot summer in Estonia, so knitting didn`t seem like a good activity. So I crocheted a skirt. Again, the main colourful material is a jumper from second hand shop for 20 euro cents, and the pink one is from the shop...
