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.
Very excited to announce being published in

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
But you can see for yourself the Lace Cardigan pattern is free for now…In Sizes Small / Medium and it is easy to adapt to larger size too.
We sew quilts together and as we all know there is always leftover fabric from the quilt we just proudly finished. So no surprise I had a view pieces of flannel left from a previous quilt I put together.
Working at The Quilt Store , I get to see new fabric coming in and believe me the colours and prints are very hard to resist.
Truly believe with Clodagh our new Owner of the store, that the supplies will be gorgeous and you too will find what you are looking for your next project.
Kind of got the sewing bug yesterday while I helped out at my friends booth “Divas Quilting Studio”
at the Seasons Christmas Show
Ursula has some amazing quilts for sale till tomorrow November 22nd. Great Christmas gifts at really good prices.
It kind of looks like I strayed away from knitting. By far I have to say. Busy with lots of new projects on the go i kind of forgot to post them. Believe me I will try to show you over the next view weeks.
So this Forest Weave by Yumiko Alexander is a real simple and fun knit so much so I had a view orders in to knit for friends. This summer top is knit side ways and all with some cable work and dropped stitches a fun summer knit.
Glad to use my “Mablez” needle at 5.5mm as they have a bit of a sharper point and FibraNatura Good Earth Solids a Aran weight 53% Cotton, 47% Linen wa ideal for this top.
For small size 5.5 skeins for medium to larger size 6 to 7 skeins in this yarn.
Great for the office in the summer or cooler night. But wait who said you can’t wear it in the winter with a turtleneck under it.
Damit ist hier dieser “Forest Weave” von Yumiko Alexander ist ein echt einfacher Sommer Pullover. Durfte den Pulli sogar noch zwei mal stricken. Dieser Sommer Pulli strickt sich von der Seite Weg und mit einigen Zopf Mustern und Fallmaschen echt toll zum Stricken und Targen
Los gings mit meinem “Mablez” Nadeln # 5,5 mm. Diese Nadlen haben einen bessern Spitz und FibraNatura Good Earth Wolle war ideal. Für kleine Größe benöttigte ich nur 5,5 Stränge für mittlere bis größere Größe 6 bis 7 Stränge in diesem Garn.
Ideal für das Büro im Sommer oder kühlere Nächt. Aber wer sagt man kann den nur im Sommer tragen,im Winter mit einem Rollkragen d’runter geht doch auch gut.
A shawl by Mindy Ross that you too can download on Ravelry.
Truly one of my favourites pattern. Though I have to say the yarn makes this absolutely fabulous. Have you heard of “Hemp for Knitting” yes we used to tie our old newspapers into bundles for the recycling (That was back home in Switzerland way long ago). Well this Hemp is for knitting now. much more refined and softer than the rope I used for the papers.
Love, Love love knitting with this but then I enjoy knitting with Linen too that too can be a bit stiff and hard on your hands. But it softens up soooo much with knitting, washing and wearing the garment.
I hope you are not shying away from this when you touch the hank it really does get much softer with wear.
Yes finally some sunshine coming into my kitchen.
Looks like our cat loves it too. Likes to be close to see what this funny machine is doing…nose away please …
I should be outside in the garden
cleaning up but decided to finish a view of my unfinished sewing projects. Well kind of finished, as for the quilt, need to add batting and backing and quilt it next.
I started a class at my workplace “The Quilt Store”
“Remembering Grandma” well mine was the “Morning Star” but it did not go as planed so changes it to “Remembering Grandma” with opening up a view seems and making it work. Looks nice now too and I am happy this way too.
The Pillow just needs some stuffing and two buttons and sewing it closed and voila. What a great idea to used up fabric I had stashed in my home…
I think I have a new favourite ” Dresden Plate” love this idea. I think I’ll work on the bag next and maybe the table runner….
