Just posting some of the Fingering weight yarn in 50% Merino Wool and 50% Silk under
” KnitswissYarns Figering Weight”
If you are looking for a nice soft yarn perfect for knitting a Shawl, Scarf as well they are great if you are working multiple colour projects. I have a view colours left with 2 – 3 skeins. The rest is one skeins only for now. Hope to have a bigger selection in 2-3 skeins with same colours soon again.
I am happy to ship them to you too but would have to charge a shipping fee.
Have a look on the top of my site for the “KnitswissYarns Fingering Weight” all skeins available to buy are listed there. Just give me a text if you are interested in any.
Well not so new I believe. One of my customers from work has ask my over two years ago if we sell knitting needles that bend in the centre and you only work with 3 needles she said…and if I have knit with them yet…?
Unfortunately at that time I had to say “NO” to both of her question….smiles, this would not be the case today.
As of today I own a set on my own. Today I bought a 2,5mm FlexiFlips needle from Serenity Knits See what I have worked up so far the cuff of two socks…The ladies indicated it is just like knitting with straight needles. Agree, but really short straight needles. I think this would be perfect for a project on a plane where one has to make sure your not poking the person beside you..smiles.
My thoughts are; my absolute favorite needle to knit socks would be the magic loop then comes the FlexiFlips and my least favourite one would be working with 4 or 5 double-pointed needles.
The FlexiFlips are truly a great solution if you not a fan of the magic loop. Great to put the knitting down too and not having to worry of loosing stitches , though keep an eye on that 3rd needle ..smiles. I was knitting away ……and being used to knitting with my magic loop let go of the needle at the end of the row to flip to other side….well that was my 3rd needle now hahah for me the needle ended up on the floor….just something to be aware off.
“Spending time with my mom back home in Switzerland and with great friends….”
Exiting part of this trip was the Ms. Excellence Allegra our Ship stopped in Amsterdam….yessss guess who has a store there? Stephen West and Penelope…I just had to visit this store! We bought yarn and some stitch markers with…
Oh yes bicycle theme. So cool
Reni my girlfriend was totally on board to find this store too. Though she doesn’t knit much she still bought yarn so this is where I came into play….happily I have to say
The colours in this wrap are just perfect for this pattern and guess what I used up all kinds of my left-over scarp yarns…well not really scrap yarn as it is all so wonderful and we never have scrap yarn if you are thinking like me…
I always tend to think what can I make with this little bit of yarn before I go to my perfectly full skeins that are just waiting to be use for
“THAT PERFECT PROJECT”
So if you are like me then you saved up many PERFECTLY amazing yarn and use up the left-over yarns… smiles ….
I did say that I am not going to able to knit up all this yarn and wear it before I am not here anymore….well I decided to start using my So Amazing yarns and knit up something gorgeous. Even If I have to give it to an appreciating person that would wear it….so ok enough of this chabbering…lets get knitting… and designing my next project for January issue….off to work I go.
But here is the info for this fun wrap ….totally love it.
and the yarn is the best I have to say …smiles my own KnitSwissYarns and all in Fingering 100% Superwash Merino Wool as I said all bits and pices …and needle size 4mm just really love that lose drap to the wrap.
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.
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.
The “Eggli Vest”has been published in the latest “A Needle Pulling Thread” magazine Issue #17. You are able to download the pattern if you can’t get the magazine by clicking on the link above.
As Carla the publisher of the magazine indicates:
“The Eggli Vest is a one of the most versatile vest in a long time, wearing it upside down will give it a different look and it’s the same vest! A little cable for interest and structure, and I-cord cast off for that final touch of class.”
Pictures have been taken by Carla “A Needle Pulling Thread” for this magazine…..
