Baby sweater in stranded color work, yarn: Malabrigo Sock

Review :: Malabrigo Sock ::

Gerade las ich drüben bei Lanade im Blog eine Rezension zum Sockengarn von Malabrigo, Malabrigo Sock. Da fiel mir ein, dass ich vor nicht allzu langer Zeit auch ein Projekt aus eben diesem Garn gestrickt hatte – einen kleinen Fair Isle Pullover für Mr. T. Aber gezeigt habe ich das süße Teil im Blog nie. Read More

Colorful Yarn

Do you know Attic24? It’s a blog by the incredibly talented Lucy of Attic24 and she’s been dazzling us with her colorful crochet creations for quite some time. Actually, back in 2011 it was her wonderful blankets that got me to dig out some hooks and yarn and give crochet another try – for what Read More

Micro Cobblestone

Jared Flood’s Cobblestone Sweater had instantly caught my eye when it first appeared in Interweave Knits magazine’s Fall 2007 issue. It is such a clean design but still offers some interest. And of course I’m a sucker for tweedy yarns, so I fell right for this one 😉 But unfortunately I neither found the yarn Read More

Colors of Summer

While the heat wave during the Pentecost holidays has come and gone I’m still enjoying the sunny days and the colors of summer in my front yard and garden. There’s strawberries, buttercups, periwinkle and lavender adding dashes of color everywhere. It’s lovely. On the knitting (and crochet) front I seem to be getting my groove Read More

Inspirational Knitting

This weekend a friend asked about my well-being since I hadn’t shared any new knitting around here for a while. Ouch. Apart from the regular everyday stuff like work, family, the house, friends and whatnot there has been knitting going on, of course.   One of the most interesting and fun projects over the last Read More

The merit of keeping swatches

While washing some of my woolen garments for winter I was shocked to find my beloved Wollmeise cardigan with two holes and a thin spot on the collar. How can this be? I frantically searched my wardrobe for other signs of moth infestation but couldn’t find any. Which is good, of course. But what happened Read More

Wollmeise Mania

Over the past years indie dyer “Wollmeise” has gained an incredible popularity allover the world. When I first ordered a few skeins of 100% Merino yarn with Claudia it was a small affair with the distinctive, cute flash based Wollmeise website. The page showed yarns in maybe 20 interestingly named, bright colorways that you could 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. When I first browsed this issue it was this pattern that instantly caught my eyes. And I was totally set to knit it in the original yarn – Malabrigo Lace Merino. Alas, 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
