Modified this one a bit by the sleeves. Instead of increasing at usual spots I decreased on each side by fornt of sleeves. Really love this modification



Spaß einfach so los zu stricken und die Verwendung von Garn für diese Jacke sin einfach unergänzlich! Also wirklich nur Spaß habe ich mit dieser Strickjacke…auch Du wirst daran freude finden! Für die einte Jacke hatte ich  Wolle von JoJoland benutzt ja Resten davon aber wie schoen die geworden ist. Leider haben keine Ahnung was für Wolle ich hatte für die Zweite. 

Wenn ihr dies liest bin ich bereits in der Schweiz auf Besuch und ich brauchte einige Geschenke für Leonnie und Elena..lächelt ja ihr Mädels :-) anscheinend gefiel diese Jacke euch zweien so gute. Doch auch ihr seit am wachsen und groesser werden, so braucht man neue Sachen …. Hoffe Ihr zwei habt freude daran.

So working on another pattern …So far it looks like a lot of bubbles but they will smooth out once soaked and blocked.  With two skeins of my KnitswissYarns in Sport weight this should be a nice baby carseat blanket.

Will just have to see and wait about a week or so ….pattern will available within the next view weeks too.

Ein weiteres Muster das ich entwerfe …so weit sieht es recht gut aus, mit einer Menge von “Bubbles”. Das wird sich dann schon legen wenn die Decke durchnässt und gespannt ist. Mit zwei Stränge meiner KnitswissYarns in 100% Superwash Merino

100% Superwash Merino Sock weight yarn KnitswissYarns

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.

Nighthawk Bias Scarf

Nighthawk Bias Scarf 

DSC04128 by Americo Original Design Team

I have knit this Nighthawk Bias Scarf once before with only one skein of Americo Original Sedoso
I would say this is one of my favourites.
I decide to knit it in another yarn Americo Original Baby Dehaired Llama  from Americo Original. IMG_0234 With only 2 skeins at 100 gram each and a needle size 4.5mm US 7 it knit up in a good time too.
Though for this weight yarn I changed up the pattern just slightly casting on only 61sts….to make it work with the pattern width.
Finished size is: 244cm (8 feet) tip to tip long and 66cm (13inches) wide.
Perfect scarf to fold in half and wrap around neck then pull though loop…or wrap around neck several times for warmth. Then again once wrapped around your neck and having a big long front scarf draped down is just as nice.

von Americo Original-Design Team
Ich habe diesen Nighthawk Bias-Schal schon einmal gestrickt mit ” Americo Original-Garn Sedoso” in beige
Doch dieses mall strickte ich es mit “Americo Original-Baby-Lama” in rotIMG_0228
von Americo Original. Mit nur 2 Stränge mit je 100-Gramm und einer Nadelstärke 4,5 mm US 7  strickte ich dises in einer guten Zeit. Obwohl musste ich das Muster etwas änderte um die Massen zu bekommen. Habe nur 61 Maschen angefasst …. um es mit der Musterbreite gleich zu behalten. Fertige Größe ist: 244 cm Spitze zu Spitze und 66cm in der Breite. Perfekter Schal in der Mitte falten und um den Hals wickeln und durch die Schlaufe ziehen …Voila schoen ist er auch

Teen Knitting Is A Huge Trend Today

I-Pod Cozie Owl I found on the internet

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….

(As per this Article and I just picked a view lines that popped for me in this article:)

“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.”

I Pod Cozie 4This is just to show you a view I-Pod Cozies that I found looking on the internet…really cool ideas. Some are Knit and some are crochet.
