What to do when you don’t feel like knitting or sewing… Used no pattern for this design..just started to crochet.
I had bought many years back in Switzerland some of the string yarn… now it was time to use it up.
Bought some more of T-Shirt fabric that I cut up…Hope to writ this pattern up shortly for any one that likes to crochet one bag too.
For the handles I used 2 of the same inexpensive Belts that I had extra holes added by a local shoe repair place.
Then just wove the belt straps in to the bag
Love the feel and look of the yarn and sweater. Used a hook size 3.5mm (E) and all of the 4 skeins (400 grams) I bought for a small/medium but had to hook on for the larger size due to yarn.
A light fun pattern and ideal to wear over a strapless top or halter top.
You want your crochet work to show off.
The sleeves and back are crochet all in one piece and then at the sleeves section sewn together. Once that is done it gets easier. Just pick up the required stitches all around the body opening. Knitting in the round is easy now as it is a knit 2, purl 2, knit 2 continue to end …Lacy Cardigan 2016
The Lace Cardigan pattern ..In Sizes Small / Medium and it is easy to adapt to larger size too. I’ll be working this pattern up again in my “KnitswissYarns” shortly and have pattern available again….Happy knitting
A fabulous yarn to knit or crochet for sure. I this recent project that I just started I using up about 500 gram of Noro Silk Garden. I really love how the colours blend well together. Even though I am using a good 20 different colours in each leftover skein up.
Have a look and can you guess what this will be? I’ll keep you posted soon.
Ein fabelhaftes Garn zum Stricken oder häkeln ist die Noro Wolle schon . Ich habe dieses Projekt erneut aufgefasst. Da ich ungefähr 500 Gramm von verschiedene Knäueln von Noro Silk Garden übrig hatte. Toll ist es schon wie die Farben so wunderschöne zusammen schmiegen. Auch wenn ich mit gut 20 verschiedene Farben Stricke.
Schaut doch schnell und kannst Du sehen was ich da Stricke? Bis bald wieder werde Euch auf dem Laufenden halten bald.
To bad I can’t make the sunshine come forward, however….
I can definitely can bring you colours with my work.
For the past view months I have been crocheting squares. Yes just some fun crochet stuff.
Totally thrilled how this vest turned out. I call it the “Tirano Vest.
I can’t wait to see how my new “Flower Power” coat will look once done…but until then I hope we have some more sunshine soon…
Würde es nie denken… ja schon wieder ein regnerischen, kalten Tag und das schon fuer drei Tage.
So hier dann etwas Farbe da ich die Sonne Euch nicht senden kann.
Farben, ja, das kann ich mit meinen Strick bringen, doch dieses mal wird es Häkeln sein.
Ich bin begeistert wie diese Tirano
Weste zusammen kam.
Ohne Muster? Ja das gibt es schon, alles Freestyle.
Bin auch schon gespannt wie meine neuer Flower Power Jacke aussehen wird.Doch da muss ich noch etliche Tage daran stricken…so bis auf bald dann.
Well we sure have lots of colours here….
I could knit up sooo many patterns with this wonderful Yarn and never be bored.
Stunning and just perfect for the coming drab winter too….
We all will bring a sunshine to the day
let the world know
What a fantastic weekend we had at the Knitter’s Fair in Kitchener Waterloo, Ontario.http://www.kwknittersguild.ca/fair/ September 14th. 2013
Sooo much Yarn unbelievable …my first time going to this Fair…sooo worth the drive. Ahhhh yes I know Madi I did not drive…..Madi was behind the wheel thank goodness.! We, Ana my Mom and I made sure she would not get lost…smile. GPS did help too …
We met so many friendly people . Vendors and Customers…just a good bunch of people. I truly love being part of this all.
Have a look at our booth “The Yarn Store” http://www.theyarnstore.ca/
It is amazing to see all the booths going up in many hours of: How should this look, where do we place this skein. Should we put it up in rows of colours or in the same weight? How many colours do we have? No here it goes…or Ana I need this for here. Giggles and smiles we had…
Resting at night not sure how the others did but I did not do much of that ….my mind was on the next day’s show….and hoping all goes just as planned….GREAT!!!
Fun…and then the selling , and talking about the yarn . “DyeHard” by my college Deb Y , “Yarn Hallow”, “JoJoland”, Noni Purses!..the list goes on…..even posing for pictures …all was so much fun.

I am so happy to ready this article that my hubby sent me a view days ago. He is always on the look out for me to get new ideas in Knitting, Quilting, Home Decorations, Family, What is the newest Fashion…you name it he will find it for me.
So please have a look at this link I posted here It talks all about YESSS
“Teen knitting is a huge trend today”
And not just with girls…Yes the Boys are realizing they meet the girls if they learn to knit or crochet …how about that for a change….
“Books about teen knitting are flying off the shelves faster than ever before, and high school knitting clubs are popping up everywhere. Unlike many other crafts, knitting is very accessible and satisfying for beginners, which is one reason why teen knitting is suddenly so hip. Teen knitting is most popular with girls, but more and more guys are picking up the hobby too. From stylish and cozy caps to ultra-modern iPod cozies, teen knitting today is about much more than just sweaters.
Teen knitting clubs are a logical offshoot of this new trend. Although knitting is in some ways a solitary activity, being part of a community of knitters is a great way to learn new techniques and get inspiration for new projects. The social aspect of teen knitting is a big reason why it is so popular. A lot of teen knitting is done by boys who want to make unique laptop covers, clothes that are the height of cool, or special gifts that any relative or girlfriend are sure to appreciate. The fact that teen knitting isn’t just a trend among girls really says something about how much gender roles have changed since grandma started making mittens.”
How about this another month of 20% off

Ein tolles Projekt, das ich in dem neuen Noro Häkeln Buch gefunden hatte.
Ich habe nur zwei Stränge von Noro Silk Garden Lite etwa 248.7Meter und einem Häkel nummer 4mm oder (G) gebraucht.
Yes my walking foot for the sewing machine works now after having a user issue at first …that would be me…smile.
So home I came after my workday. Know the question was, do I knit, crochet or work on my quilt? I did have my crochet project in my hands and after 4 reps of the pattern I told myself stop!!! go work on the quilt. Ok I know I have to do the “Stitch In The Ditch” stuff….yes also my first time …. struggling with all that material between the needle and the body of the machine and sewing a straight line….and yes all the pins….huuuhaaa…not so easy I say ….done now…
will see what my teacher Ana has to say…smile my guess is I used the wrong colour threat for this job
So ist es Zeit, dass ich meine erste Quilt fertig nähe, nicht wahr?!.
Ja, mein Leufer Fuß für die Nähmaschine funktioniert jetzt, nachdem ich Gestern etwas problem hatte damit …ein Benutzer Problem … das wäre mich … smile. So brachte ich die Maschine ins Geschäft um nach zu fragen was ich da falsch mache?
Dann wurde mir erklärt das der Fuss oben und unten nicht überein legen. So die gute Ana kam zur Hilfe und nun klapt alles Bestens. Danke Schön.
Zuhause angekommen nach meinem Arbeitstag war die Frage, stricken, häkeln oder weiter machen mit meinem Quilt?
Ich hatte meine Häkelprojekt in meinen Händen doch nach 4 Musters Wiederholungen sage ich genug damit! Mach mit der Patchwork Decke weiter .
Ok, ich weiß, “Stich im Graben” (wie wird dem sagen) mach ich auch das Erste Mal…. etwas gekämpft hatte ich mit all dem Material, das zwischen der Nadel und der Maschine war und dann auch noch geraden Linie zu nähen und all die Sicherheits Nadeln dazu…. huuuhaaa … gar nicht so einfach. Bin gestpannt was meine Lehrerin die Ana dazu zusagen hat. lächeln .. meine Vermutung ist, dass ich nicht die richtige Farbe beim Faden benutz habe…
Well…. I can tell You all, the doors have not even open and we “The Staff” of The Quilt Store and The Yarn Store in Newmarket are already having so much fun. This mornings drive to the International Centre was a blast….Irene made sure we all are awake that is for sure. The coffee helped too I have to say….Thanks for our great driver Adrienne we arrived in no time.
Ok I have to say THANKS! to Ana and Joe to have the super soft floor all laid out already.
We have some amazing kits prepared for
next Quilt. You have to see the “Rag Quilt” Sam sewed up so feverishly the last week, stunning I have to say!
Yes I know so many more quilts have been on our machines at the store….everyone played a part in it I am sure Madi even worked on one or two herself…so You just have to see for yourself.
Ah yes here is my favourite: Knitting and Yarn!!!
