Bosworth Minis - Handspindeln von J. Bosworth / Journeywheel.com

Spinnen :: Tour de Fleece 2016 ::

Was Bitteschön ist denn die Tour de Fleece? Seit Jahren flippt die gesamte Online-Spinn-Community Anfang Juli völlig aus. Während an die 100 Fahrradfahrer zur wohl berühmtesten Radrennveranstaltung der Welt, der Tour de France, antreten, gehen viele tausend Spinner bei der „Tour de Fleece“ an den Start um sich selbst spinntechnisch herauszufordern. Im Gegensatz zur festgelegten Strecke der Tour Read More

Arrow Lines Shawl

FO :: Arrow Lines Shawl ::

Kürzlich fertig geworden ist dieses interessante Dreieckstuch. Für mich ist es besonders in zweierlei Hinsicht. Zum einen habe ich es endlich mal geschafft, etwas von meinem handgesponnenen Garn zu verarbeiten. Zum anderen hat mir diese spezielle Konstruktion schon seit längerem Kopfzerbrechen bereitet. Ich habe in letzter Zeit viele Tücher mit einer solchen Konstruktion gesehen und konnte Read More

Ich habe mal überlegt, wann ich eigentlich zum Wolle spinnen gekommen bin. So ganz sicher bin ich nicht, aber es ist über 10 Jahre her. Angefangen habe ich mit einem Starterset von Rudi Künzl, bestehend aus einer Spindel und 100 g kardierter Wolle. Ich habe diverse Wollsorten zu dickeren und dünneren Fäden versponnen, auf diversen Spindeln, Read More

Spindle Gallery :: Bosworth Midi Dogwood/Cochin Rosewood ::

Back in 2005 I bought a Bosworth Moosie. The whorl is Moose antler. Very lovely, very rare, very exclusive and today at a price where I might hesitate to buy one. A while ago I realized that the shaft on my Moosie spindle was split right where the hook sat. The Bosworths kindly offered to Read More

The Art of Letting Go or How to Master Russian Lace Spindles

Spring is slowly making an appearance in our neck of the woods. Very slowly indeed. After a few days of sunny weather and 8°C we’re back in the below zero region but thankfully no more snow on the ground. Still a bit of snow in the air and the occasional sleet shower though. Somehow winter Read More

Sunkissed – From Fiber to Yarn

Snow, snow and look! More snow. Still perfect weather for spinning, knitting and keeping warm next to the heater. Here's some yarn that got finished last week. I'm calling it 'Sunkissed' because someone on Ravelry commented it reminded her of well planted garden with all the flowers in bloom on a bright sunny day in Read More

From Fiber to Shawl :: Bewitched Citron ::

This little shawl is obviously the most knitted project from the newest Knitty issue. As of today Ravelry lists 379 projects and counting.

WIP :: From fiber to sock ::

It’s been a while since I’ve tried knitting two socks at the same time on circular needles. All I remember is a whole lot of fiddling. I wanted to give this thing another try because ending up with two socks at the same time sure sounds like a cool thing. And besides there’s lots of Read More
