Me Made May

Über manche Sachen stolpert man im Internet und wundert sich, worum es dabei geht. “Me Made May” ist eines von diesen Phänomenen. In einigen Blogs hatte ich es gelesen und gesehen, konnte mir aber gar nichts drunter vorstellen. Und als ich dann endlich kapiert hatte, worum es geht, da war es schon zu spät noch Read More

Knitting on the Road

Visiting family for us means at least a couple of hours on the road at the best of times. Or in case of my in laws it means more than 400 km which can add up to 4 to 5 hours in the car. Thanks to the ingenuousness of Apple products at least Little Girl Read More

Hooked

Who knew crochet could be so much fun?! Me, I’ve always been an avid knitter and had trouble wrapping my head around crochet. Sure, I could do the standard stuff. Crochet chains, picot edgings, crab stitch, the odd flower here and there and maybe even a pot holder once in a blue moon. But it Read More

‘Tis The Season

And again a year is drawing to a close. Over the last year it turned out that social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Ravelry have gotten most of my attention when it comes to status updates, pictures and reviews. It’s hard to keep up blogging with longer, more profound updates. Ravely is just so Read More

Holiday Impressions

This year we’re spending our holidays mostly at home enjoying home, garden and the immediate area. Between work and our motor-sports hobbies we didn’t get to spend nearly enough time relaxing at home this year. And it gives me the time to throughly dive into some knitting and spinning. Here’s some pics that give a Read More

FO :: Miralda’s Triangular Shawl and more finished stuff ::

It might not always seem that way if my recent blog posts are anything to go by but I’ve indeed been knitting away on all kinds of things and managed to complete a few of them. My latest infatuation has been a shawl pattern from the book “Knitted Lace of Estonia” – Miralda’s Triangular Shawl. Read More

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

WIP :: Whisper Cardigan ::

Was das Stricken betrifft, so bin ich seit einer Woche fieberhaft dabei, einen Whisper Cardigan zu stricken. Dieses Sommerjäckchen lebt davon, dass ein feines Lacegarn auf relativ dicken Nadeln gestrickt wird und dadurch ein luftig leichtes Gestrick entsteht. Ich hatte da dieses wunderschöne Mohair/Merino-Garn von Touch Yarns hier liegen, welches ich mir vor Jahren einmal Read More

WIP :: Dotty Dress ::

Ja, ich stricke auch noch. Zur Zeit arbeite ich mit viel Freude an einem gepunkteten Kleid fürs Mäuschen. Inspiration war hierzu zum einen der Westover “Dotty” von Kaffe Fassett aus dem Rowan-Heft Nr. 40 und zum anderen das unten abgebildete handgesponnene Garn aus dem Kammzug von Sunset Fibers. Ich habe das Garn so gesponnen, dass Read More

WIP :: Peacock Feathers Shawl ::

A – now kind of rare – round through my fiber related blog bookmarks turned up Kim from The Giving Flower had finished her Peacock Feathers Shawl just a few days ago. It turned out beautiful and is really a sight. Check it out! Seriously! We both loved the pattern so much and talked about Read More
