Fall Cover Up

Just finished this quick cover up Poncho for Chloe. I hope this will fit her for some time. A thank You for a helping hand. Chloe’s “Grosi” is always so ready to help me in need. Thanks for being a friend.

This pattern is called Robin Poncho. You too can purchase this on Ravelry for your self. Or download on her blog http://www.mukicrafts.com as far as I know…

I had been given 5 skeins of yarn called “Sugar Baby Stripes” by Mary Maxim. Only used 2.5 for the size 6. Great yarn for this kind of job.

Needles At Work

….after some time not really having my knitting needles in my hand …. Just not sure why that happen. But for past 6 months I have kind of lost my desire for knitting.

Have You ever felt like that? You have a hobby that is your passion, all of a sudden You have no interest in it anymore?

Some of You may say ….Oh no! This is unheard off. My knitting has been part of my daily life.

Well I think this little poncho request has brought back some nice memories of knitting. And how good it feels to be creating something handmade.

Fun Day Dyeing Yarn

2019-01-24 10.21.01-1So I had a order for 4 skeins in a very deep plum colour. To be exact, it had to be the same as the top 2 skeins. I  am very happy I was able to recreate the same colour and strength in the bottom 4 skeins as I have in the top 2.

Then decided to play around with 4 skeins of Fingering weight in a deep plum but much more with light to dark shades in same skeins. I am in love with this look and can’t wait to see them knit up.

 

 

Flower Power Coat

Truly happy and loving  this “Flower Power” Coat

Coat is finally finished.  Smiles, it only took me 4 summers to knit up.

Wow… You may say, but being fingering weight, needles 2.25 mm and in a black as you can see for most of the knitting. I really needed good lighting and the best was, sunlight outside in my backyard. Then the challenge of cutting the front open, something we knitters call “Steeking” and picking up stitches to bind  the front edge…woha, a little nerve-racking. Only because I already invested that many year of knitting into the coat. Really did not want to muck this part up…Yes perfect all great.

You can see the inside of the coat is just a beautiful as the ousie..smile.

The pattern and yarn are from Christel Seyfarth Shetland Lambswool she has some stunning and beautiful designs.

As I have shortened this jacket I had to modify some areas. So it is not true version of her coat. Therefore I have lots of yarn left. for some other project. Then I still have  a foul box of her yarn for another coat of shawl..

Spring Into Spring Cardi

IMG_1704
I had knit this before on a trip back home to Switzerland and then gifted it to one of my best friends Marianne.
Thought it was time for me to have one too….Or perhaps it to will be a gift. Or if anyone loves it I would be willing to sell it too….Smiles I have enough yarn, I could make another one….
This is a very lose fitting cardi on me so would fit someone with medium to large size too.
Really starting to use up my stashed yarn. So thought this FibraNatura Good Earth Solids
would be perfect for this pattern  original  is found 19 Jacke by Lang Yarns

Crochet T-Shirt-Fabric Bag

IMG_1340What to do when you don’t feel like knitting or sewing… Used no pattern for this design..just started to crochet.

I had bought many years back in Switzerland some of the string yarn… now it was time to use it up.

Bought some more of T-Shirt fabric that I cut up…Hope to writ this pattern up shortly for any one that likes to crochet one bag too.

For the handles I used 2 of the same inexpensive Belts that I had extra holes added by a local shoe repair place.

Then just wove the belt straps in to the bag
