Pattern update :: Hearts in Estonia Shawl ::

People have been asking for this pattern ever since I’ve knitted the first version. Fitting the motifs into a bottom up shawl does require quite a bit of math, calculating and tinkering so it’s taken me a while to work out the charts and the stitch counts. Motivated by the success of the scarf pattern Read More

Pattern :: Hearts in Estonia Scarf ::

Originally this has only been an improvised design. I wanted to knit a wee little scarf with lots of lace, bobbles and color that would make use of one skein of sock yarn. It’s basically a different interpretation of my Hearts in Estonia Shawl I blogged about back in April 2010. I took my inspiration Read More

Oh my, it’s been a more than a month since I wrote something here. Time is flying. When I’m not working or knitting I’m playing support team and pit stop crew for DH.

Revised pattern :: Birch Leaf Shawl ::

Back in 2005 I published a knitting pattern on my blog that was inspired by a pattern called ‚Birch‘ designed by Sharon Miller. But instead of being worked from the top down with 300 and some stitches to be cast on my shawl was worked bottom up. No more miscounting while trying to get slippery Read More

Cold winter, warm shawl

Temperatures dropped again under 10°C and with the wind it feels plain cold, cold, cold. Just the right weather for sitting inside, central heating turned all the way up and knitting and spinning up a storm. Which also means I got to finish my latest shawl project in only 10 days. It’s a variation on Read More
