New Blog Look and Website

File 2017-03-30, 12 02 25 PMHello every one hope this will find You all happy and healthy and ready for the warmer Spring Weather. You may have noticed a little bit of a change in the look of my blog.

“At this point I also would like to say Thank You to all of You that have been following my Blog for so many years ….I love to see You all enjoying what is my Passion. Thank You.”

Like Spring I thought it would be nice to change a little stuff up on my blog. Now you see the main picture of my blog post instead of the full post. You can click on it and it will open up the new post. Or You can scroll to the right and find an older post click on it and voila it will open up the article.

This I thought is easier for you so one does not need to  scroll through each blog post if one wants to only look at the quilt etc.

Also new:  You go to “KnitswissYarns” it will take you now to my Online-Shop from there you have a choice to shop or go to Jacqueline’s Blog exactly the same as this site.

At one point I will merge them all together as one but not at this time….So enjoy and hop you all will have a wonderful Spring.

Jacqueline

 

Hallo Ihr Lieben Freunde… hoffe bei Euch ist alles Gesund und Munter . Freut Ihr Euch auch auf das wärmere Frühlingswetter?  Sicher habt Ihr schon gemerket das ich meine Blog Look ein bisschen Verändert habe.

“Hier möchte ich mich bei Euch recht herzlich Bedanken für Euren Besuch währent den etliche vergangen Jahre.  Mein “Passion” Euch zu zeigen und die netten Worte von Euch freuen mich immer….”

So, ‘Frühling’ perfect auch hier etwas zu erfrischen. Jetzt siehst Du das Hauptbild meines Blogs anstelle des ganzen Beitrags. Du kannst darauf klicken und es wird den neuen Beitrag eröffnen. Oder Du kanst nach rechts scrollen und auf einen  älteren Beitrag  klicken und es wird den öffnen.

Dachte es ist einfacher und schneller ein bestimmten post zu sehen.

Auch neu: Wenn du zu “KnitswissYarns.com” gehst,

Es bringt dann meine Webseite hoch mit meinem Online-Shop.

Da hast du die Wahl zum Einkaufen oder zum Jacqueline’s Blog zu gehen.

So Enjoy und wünsch Euch allen einen wunderschöne Frühling

Jacqueline

This pattern is called Churros by Lisa R. Myers. Available to download on Raverly too. Super easy and fun to especial with this soft yarn  Manos del Uruguay Fino. I love knitting with any yarn they carry. For this pattern I only needed 2 skeins, one of each colour. 2014-06-03-12-38-48

Happy to have this scarf finished now. A well worth brioche pattern to knit up for your next project too.

Super weich ist dieser Schal. Hatte dieses Projekt in meinem Auto für sicher ein Jahr oder so. Nur für den Fall wenn ich irgendwo war und ich meine “Strickete” vergaß mit zu bringen. Lach man weiß ja nie, wann ein UFO gut zuhanden kommt.

Dieses Muster  “Churros” von Lisa R. Myers ist verfügbar zum Download bei Raverly. Super einfach und ein traum zum Stricken. Special mit diesem weichen Garn  von Manos del Uruguay “Fino”.  liebe das Stricken mit diesem Garn.

Baby Surprise Jacket

File 2016-08-30, 7 02 37 PMSweet as can be is this Baby Jacket…..

Knit Knit Knit was my job. Well not a job a passion I can truly say. Never without anything on my needles.

So here is the Baby Surprise Jacket once again. A favourite knit for Babies.

Here I used only one skein of my own “KnitswissYarns”

100% Superwash merino Sport weight. One skein just finished it all up nicely. For the 0-3/5 month old (160 sts)

This pattern has been around for many years and so many People love to knit this.

Perhaps you are in my neighbourhood and like to knit one up too just send me a message will work something out. Or I can teach you how to knit or crochet…just ask for my classes or send me a note what you like to create.File 2016-08-30, 7 03 04 PM

I believe this one already has a baby boy to keep warm too.

Kelly hope you too will love it as much as I enjoyed knitting it up.

Süß wie immer, ist diese Baby-Jacke ….. stricken stricken stricken war mein Job. Also, nicht ein Job eine Leidenschaft, das darf ich wirklich sagen. Nie ohne etwas auf meine Nadeln.

Also hier ist das Baby Surprise Jacket wieder. Ein beliebtes stricken von mir. Nicht mein eigenes Muster. Das Muster gibt es schon seit vielen Jahren und so viele Menschen lieben es zum Stricken.

So wenn Du in meiner Nachbarschaft wohnst und Du auch so eine Baby Jacke stricken willst schreib mir nur ein paar Zeilen und wir sehen was wir so für Tage frei haben. Auch wenn  Du Stricken oder Häckeln lernen wills…frag mich nur.

Reni ich weiss Dich hab ich schon dabei via Skype….sobald Du die Wolle bekommst.

 

 

KnitswissYarns In The Sunshine

File 2016-05-31, 8 08 57 PMSunshine all around….thought it was the perfect day to dye a view skeins of yarn…Only to find out I ordered the fingering weight instead of the sport weight yarn….off to the ordering again as I have a view of my friends looking for the “Sport Weight” not fingering Weight….but as I had the skeins soaking already why not go ahead with giving them a colour….

Since I am already on a roll why not put 4 skeins of Milk Protein Fibres/ Bamboo in the dye bath and 3 skeins of  Silk /Linen to see how they take the dye….Gorgeaous is all I say.

Hope to knit some sample up soon too.

Knitswiss Yarns  “100% Bamboo” collection

Sonnenschein….perfekter Tag zum Färben von Garnen. Nur um herauszufinden, ich bestellte Fingering Weight  anstelle von Sport Weight. Oh je Oh je ..die  Bestellung muss schnell weiter gehen. Doch nun hatte ich die Knäuel schon eingeweicht im Wasser Bad dann soll es auch weiter gehen mit dem Färben.   Wunderschön!

Weiter geht es mit 4 Knäuel von Milch Protine Fasern/ Bambus im Färbebad und 3 Knäuel aus Seide/Leinen.  Nur zu sehen wie die verschieden Mediums die Farbstoffe annehmen werden…WUNDERSCHÕN ist alles was ich sage

Hoffe bald damit einige fertige gestrickte exemplare zu zeigen

Homespun Rag Quilt

2016-05-23 19.23.58Yes new Homespun fabric has arrived at “The Quilt Store” where I work…

Love the colours and I have to tell you the Homespun is one of my favourite fabrics by far.

Well next to the batik. But with batik you can’t make a rag quilt…So this Homespun  is a perfect weight for a spring or summer evening cuddle quilt sitting by the fire camping or in your backyard.

You too can sew this up in no time.

 

I was kind of thinking of making a longer rag wrap quilt for me to put over my shoulders in the evenings…but really need to get some headway with some of my knitting too.

small bundel

All you need is half a meter of 6 colours each. 

2016-05-23 10.35.57

Cut them into 6″ squares  (my front and back are the same fabric) then deco stitch a “X” with any fancy stitch you like onto the 6″square. Sew them all in a pleasing way together with a 1/2″ sem . I had 6 squares by 9 squares as you can see in the picture or at the store.

For the edging you need about 1.20 meters of one colour cut them into 5″ stripes and fold in half. This amount was based on the length 9 squares that now are only 5″ due to the 1/2″ seam. I sewed the edge onto the 9 square length first then the 5 square edge.

before the wash

Cut the fringes and off to the wash…Please make sure once you put this into the drier you empty the filter about every 3-5 minutes believe me it will be full of lint.

2016-05-23 11.17.12
lint amount every 3-5 minutes! So make sure you empty it often
