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

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.

Fall Rag Quilt

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.

File 2015-11-21, 12 01 11 PMSo here is what I just put together this morning. This Rag Quilt is not finished as I am looking for a border to go around the edge.

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.

Forest Weave

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.

2015-03-12 08.42.35 HDR-2Es sieht so aus, als ob ich abgekommen bin vom stricken. Im Gegenteil muss ich sagen. Glaub’ mir, ich werde versuchen in den nächsten Wochen Euch das alles zu Zeigen.

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 this colour combo

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.

Pink, White and Purple colour combo. Looks nice too

I hope you are not shying away from this when you touch the hank  it really does get much softer with wear.
