Tint Of Autum On The Rhein River

IMG_9963Tint Of Autum is the perfect memory of this wonderful time in Europe.

I was so excited to be able to go on a holiday to Europe this past Fall 2017 a cruise

from Basel to Amsterdam on The Rhein River.

“So Beautiful and Memorys to keep”

“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

 

File 2017-12-14, 12 02 57 PMReni 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

 

She fell in love with this Malabrigo Rios yarn, (Smiles I think it was the colour that she had to have)  in Amsterdam at Stephen and Penelope’s Store. See more info here for Tints Of Autum Pattern

_K0A9742With excitement and happiness can I tell you that my latest pattern called

Eggli Vest”

has been published and is available for you too to knit know.

As you all probably have been noticing  in all my latest patterns there is always a cable pattern somewhere knit into the design.

You guessed right if you said “she loves cables”

The Eggli Vest has also been knit with my own yarn

“KnitswissYarn”

 

5-7 skeins of  Sport Weight depends on the size you are knitting it. Yarn only sold directly through contacting me here on the blog or at  knitswiss@gmail.com

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.”

Rikki Hat For The Next Snowfall…not

file-2017-02-23-11-05-58-amSnow falling only less then 10 days ago…

Walking in the winter wonderland with so much snow on the trees shaking the snow off them as I stood underneath…

making snow-angels  in the snow…

yes just like a kid…. So much fun.

So good for the mind.

Loved every moment of it.

Ok all this made me knit this Rikki hat as my hat kept on moving over my eyes having fun in the snow….So with one skein of DK weight yarn and a circular needles of I went. Knit up very fast. So happy with this on….only all the snow is gone now…

file-2017-02-23-11-20-09-amSchneefall erst vor 10 Tagen … Ein wirkliches  Winter-Wunderland mit so viel Schnee auf den Bäumen. Der  Schnee von den Bäumen schüttelt, als ich darunter stand … Schnee-Engel im Schnee machen … ja wie ein Kind …. So viel Spaß! Das tut richtig gut!

Ok, das hat mich dazu gebracht, diesen Rikki-Muetze zu stricken, während mein Hut immer wieder über meine Augen ging und  Spaß im Schnee hatte …. Also mit einer Strang DK-Gewichtgarn und einer Rund- Nadeln ging es los. Strick sehr schnell. Toll wie diese Muetze sitzt nur haben wir keinen Schnee mehr …..

AHHH, Squishy Soft For The Winter

2016-09-06-22-10-16Super soft is this scarf. Had this project traveling along in my truck for the past year or so. Just in case I went somewhere and I forgot to take my knitting along..smiles. One never knows when a UFO is coming in handy to have.

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.
Schön, dass dieser Schal jetzt fertig ist.

 Entfehle das  brioche Muster zu stricken für Dein nächstes Projekt. 

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.
