Spring Into Spring Cardi

IMG_1704
I had knit this before on a trip back home to Switzerland and then gifted it to one of my best friends Marianne.
Thought it was time for me to have one too….Or perhaps it to will be a gift. Or if anyone loves it I would be willing to sell it too….Smiles I have enough yarn, I could make another one….
This is a very lose fitting cardi on me so would fit someone with medium to large size too.
Really starting to use up my stashed yarn. So thought this FibraNatura Good Earth Solids
would be perfect for this pattern  original  is found 19 Jacke by Lang Yarns

Crochet T-Shirt-Fabric Bag

IMG_1340What 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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Easy Mesh Pullover

2016-06-24 09.04.37-1Wish I had bought more of this gorgeous cotton yarn when I was home last April in Möhlin. My mom and I found this in our local “Landi” in Möhlin. Called “Baumwollgarn Fil De Coton”a sport weight cotton great for many crochet or knit projects.
Hope one day the Landi will carry more of it again so I can get more of it.
It worked up beautiful for this Easy Mesh Pullover by Teresa Chorzepa.

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.2016-06-24 09.04.40-1

Gerne hätte ich noch ein paar Kneuel  mehr von diesem wunderschönen Baumwollgarn das ich in Möhlin  im April in der Landi gekauft hatte.  Dieses ” Baumwollgarn Fil De Coton ” ist ideal für viele häkeln oder strick Projekte . Hoffe, dass eines Tages die Landi es wieder im verkauf haben wird, damit ich (oder Mutt,) mehr davon besorgen kann.  Ja auch meine Mutter hätte diesen pullover gern zum anziehen wie ich weiss.

 Einfach perfect für diesen  Netz Pullover von Teresa Chorzepa. Verwendet einen Häkel Größe 3,5 mm (E) und alle 4 Stränge (400 Gramm)  für eine kleine / mittlere Grösse musste aber wegen dem Garn auf die größere Massgröße Haken. Hab es nicht gern wenn alles so eng an liegt.

Lacy Cardigan

079Lacy Cardigan

A light fun pattern and ideal to wear over a strapless top or halter top.

You want your crochet work to show off. 075 (2)

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 …2013-10-16 13.14.56Lacy 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

One Of My Favourite Yarn

2016-01-04 21.40.39

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.
