FO :: Askews Me Shawl ::

>>English version on the bottom Dieses schöne Tuch war so ein bißchen eine Belohnung für die vielen Last-Minute Weihnachtsstrickerein für alle anderen Leute. Ich brauchte dringend was Schönes, Kuscheliges für mich.

Seasons Hat by Brooklyntweed

Lieblingsungsstücke :: Stricken für Weihnachten ::

Für uns Stricker wird es in der Vorweihnachtszeit häufig besonders geschäftig. Es wird fleißig geplant, nach Mustern, Garnen und Zubehör gesucht und dann geht’s ran an die Geschenkliste. Denn bei der Frage nach dem „Was könnte man X schenken?“ sind wir von der nähenden/häkelnden/strickenden/bastelnden Fraktion häufig ganz klar im Vorteil. Denn sind wir doch mal ehrlich: Read More

FO :: Bridgewater Triangle ::

Just when I wanted to set a link to this wonderful shawl I had knitted for myself back in June and July I discovered that I hadn’t ever posted anything about it. How is this even possible?

The Simple Things

Elizabeth Zimmermann (EZ for short), knitter and knitting teacher extraordinaire claims garter stitch to be one of the most versatile, useful and fun stitches in knitting. Most other people think it’s the most basic and therefore boring thing ever. I’ve got to admit I’ve always been a bit of a garter stitch snob. It does Read More


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
