Origami Shrug

File 2017-05-22, 6 10 33 PMBlowing in the summer wind it is for sure…

This Origami Shrug by Melissa Wehrle is so soft and light. It has been on my mind for way to long to knit this shrug up. Since I have the book now for  several years I thought it really is time to start knit it up too…

Can you tell I am Soooo loving it .File 2017-05-22, 6 07 27 PM

 

 

 

 

I used 5 skeins of my absolute favourite yarn called Louet MerLin Sport Weight a total of 1142 meters where knit up with needle  US 6 -4.0mm in the Aqua colour. So sad though this yarn is now discontinued ;-(((

If I would knit this Origami Shrug again I would be to use my KnitswissYarns in sport weight. Really think it would be stunning too.

Totally in love with this Origami Shrug.

When it came to sewing the back together I put the stitches on two separate needles and used the Kitchener this way…no one will see a seam!

(Now if you are going to knit this one up, look at the pattern errata there is a correction that is important to know! )

Celebration Tulip Cowl

File 2017-01-12, 10 48 04 AMWe celebrate 150 Year Canada this year …

 Celebration Tulip Cowl

has been designed to honour  this event. Although I have seen the Maple Leaf Tulip in pictures only at the time of me disining this cowl. I too was inspired to reflect it in my knitting and design….with planting in the fall of 2016, 50 of the Maple Leaf Tulip bulbs. File 2017-05-31, 3 09 48 PM

So after I had a look though my already existing yarn stash I found several smaller balls of fingering weight of my own KnitswissYarns. My colours are perfect for this tulip colours and concept.  I am excited to tell you the  pattern was published in “A Needle Pulling Thread” Summer edition 2017

If  You  like you can purchase the pattern through “A Needle Pulling Thread” by clicking on the link above.

 

 

 

Totoro Mittens

2016-12-21-14-32-09Totoro Mittens for my daughter.

Totoro is a character from  “My Neighbour Totoro”

Oh ok I have knit them for her for Christmas 2016 and I am totally forgot to show them to You…like so many other items I have knit since them…So I  have to catch up very fast. Seems like I have been busy posting about hikes or food lately.

Well the Totoro Mittens  by brella on Ravelry are a hit with my daughter. She loves them and apparently wears them all the time. Yeh I would too in this cold Canadian weather.

For the mittens I used two skeins of my “KnitswissYarns” in a DK weight  100% Superwash Merino wool so great far washing too. One in each colour gray and purple  and needle size 4mm. Yarn is soon available for online order too.

 

Totoro Handschuhe für meine Tochter. Oh ok ich hatte diese auf die letzte Weihnachten 2016 gestrickt und total vergessen es Euch zu zeigen … wie so viele andere Gegenstände, die ich seit dann gestrickt habe … Also dass muss ich schnell aufholen. Scheint ich habe  von Wanderungen und Backen geplaudert. Und all das Geschtricket vergessen.

Nun die “Totoro Handschuhe” von brella auf Ravelry sind ein Hit bei meiner Tochter. Sie liebt sie und scheinbar trägt sie diese immer draussen in diesem kalten Kanadischen Wetter.

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.

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
