My kind of “The Joker and the Thief”

Photo 2017-11-04, 3 12 46 PMWhat am I talking about? You may ask your self…..well it is that the original pattern …

yes a knitting pattern smiles….

 “The Joker and the Thief ” is all worked up with many fun and wonderful colours ,gorgeous for sure.

Leave it up to me though,I wanted to see how this pattern by Melanie Berg would look in just one colour. My KnitSwissYarns Fingering Merino Silk I used for this pattern is a very light tone on tone and in the right light will have a hint of purple, though the may colour is dark gray. IMG_9956

Loved the pattern and the distinct row of the 8 stitches add a definite interest to this shawl design. I truly enjoyed knitting this shawl up for my friends Ursi back home…..we enjoyed a truly fun time together in September on our Rhein River holiday.

Totoro Mittens

2016-12-21-14-32-09Totoro Mittens for my daughter.

Totoro is a character from  “My Neighbour Totoro”

Oh ok I have knit them for her for Christmas 2016 and I am totally forgot to show them to You…like so many other items I have knit since them…So I  have to catch up very fast. Seems like I have been busy posting about hikes or food lately.

Well the Totoro Mittens  by brella on Ravelry are a hit with my daughter. She loves them and apparently wears them all the time. Yeh I would too in this cold Canadian weather.

For the mittens I used two skeins of my “KnitswissYarns” in a DK weight  100% Superwash Merino wool so great far washing too. One in each colour gray and purple  and needle size 4mm. Yarn is soon available for online order too.

 

Totoro Handschuhe für meine Tochter. Oh ok ich hatte diese auf die letzte Weihnachten 2016 gestrickt und total vergessen es Euch zu zeigen … wie so viele andere Gegenstände, die ich seit dann gestrickt habe … Also dass muss ich schnell aufholen. Scheint ich habe  von Wanderungen und Backen geplaudert. Und all das Geschtricket vergessen.

Nun die “Totoro Handschuhe” von brella auf Ravelry sind ein Hit bei meiner Tochter. Sie liebt sie und scheinbar trägt sie diese immer draussen in diesem kalten Kanadischen Wetter.
