Teststrick :: Violanda ::

Der Sommer hat verflixt schnell den Staffelstab an den Herbst übergeben. Zu meinen über die Sommerferien entstandenen Stricksachen ist noch ein separater Beitrag in Arbeit. Dafür gibt es hier einen Blick auf mein aktuelles Projekt. Ich stricke noch die letzten Runden an einem Teststrick für Christine aka Strickwittchen. Christines schöner Pullover „Violanda“ mit einer hübschen 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

Berenice for Berenike

Vacation time is long past, school holidays are over tomorrow and the regularly scheduled life is about to begin anew. I can honestly say that I am quite happy for school to start again after the customary 6 weeks hiatus. While „vacation“ always sounds so nice in the beginning it does certainly come with its Read More

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


Weather around these parts has been very unsteady and downright depressing over the last month. We’ve had and early spell of warmth followed by a sharp turn into frosty temperatures. And of course the rain always hits in time for the weekend. Now this yearly cold snap that’s called ‚Frost Saints‘ (Eisheiligen) in German is Read More

Boxy Shirt

The fashion industry sucks, that’s probably what most of us have thought at one point or another. Especially if you are not stick thin and fitting into ridiculously small sizes for an adult woman. But sometimes you strike luck and the trend seems to go into a wearable direction. A few months ago I stumbled Read More

From fiber to sweater: Baby Raglan

Baby boy is 7 months old as of today and is already very mobile and quick to get around in a belly crawl that’s just too cute for words. To keep his belly warm on the floor this little sweater got off the needles just in time. It’s a basic top-down raglan with the yoke Read More

Summer has come and passed*

* from the lyrics of ‚Wake me up when September ends‘ by Green Day After a short but very hot summer it already feels very much like autumn in our neck of the woods right now. Although the sun is still shining brightly in a brilliantly blue sky it’s already pretty nippy in the shadows Read More

FO :: Modular Tomten Jacket ::

I haven’t done much of Elizabeth Zimmerman’s pattern so far but I thoroughly enjoy her writing style and her practical and sensible approach to knitting. The modular Tomten Jacket for a small child seemed a good project to venture into EZ’s knitting world for the first time. Since I wanted to knit the jacket in 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
