Spectacular Spectras

Well, it’s snowing up a little storm out there and the wind keeps heaping up snowbanks in the most inconvenient places. Like our door for example. But I won’t complain. It’s weekend, all the snow looks real pretty and we don’t really need to go outside if we don’t want to. Gives me the chance 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

FO :: Hand-spun Socks ::

I finished the hand-spun socks last week pretty much in record time. The turned really nice and I’ve already worn them twice. The yarn got me a pair of mid-calf high socks (when worn they are 34 cm from floor to cast-off edge) that work especially well in boots. They tend to slouch down a Read More

FO: Thermal

This was one of those patterns that I instantly liked when first seeing it in Knitty. I like knitting with skinny yarn and skinny needles. And I like plain sweaters that can be dressed up or down according to occasion and mood. But somehow I never quite worked up the nerve to cast-on. The pattern Read More

Photo Impressions :: Havellandrallye 2009

The little hat was inspired by the Binary scarf that had been featured in, issue Winter 2006. It’s knitted from 4-ply sock yarn and the binary code actually contains a message. I used the converter provided here to convert ASCII text into ones and zeros. It’s a really fun knit. Currently working on another Read More

Ishbel – From Fiber to Shawl

It’s not as if I wouldn’t own a sizable stash of yarn and fiber to choose from. How does one choose fiber for the next project anyway? Well, this nice and soft Merino/Nylon top in the tempting colorway ‚Magnolia‘ was calling to be spun as soon I had opened the parcel it came in from Read More

FO :: Herbivore Shawl/Scarf and some socks ::

In einem Anflug von Tuchwahnsinn MUSSTE ich die Anleitung für den Herbivore scarf einfach kaufen und praktisch SOFORT anstricken. Ich bin für alles zu haben, das lediglich 100 g Sockenwolle verbraucht und außerdem, Schals/Tücher kann man immer brauchen. Aus dem Anstricken ist dann kurzerhand ein „kann ich nicht aus der Hand legen“-Projekt geworden und das Read More

FO :: Hand-spun Socks ::

Diese schönen Socken sind schon vor über zwei Wochen fertig geworden, nur leider hatte ich nie Zeit, hier mal ein Bild einzustellen. Sie sind gestrickt aus dem handgesponnen Corriedale-Garn, dessen Werdegang ich im August hier gezeigt hatte. Das Muster ist vor mir ersonnen und ich bin gerade dabei, die Anleitung dafür fertigzumachen, bzw. wird die Read More

FO :: Diamond Fantasy Shawl ::

Während des Umzugs habe ich mir extra eine recht einfache Anleitung ausgesucht, die man auch im größten Stress ohne viele Gehirnzellen einzusetzen stricken kann. Ein Featherweight Cardigan schien da genau richtig. Ich stricke ihn aus dem Origianl Garn, dem wunderbar weichen Malabrigo Lace. Das Jäckchen soll länger werden als von der Designerin vorgesehen, d.h. es Read More
