2013-06-02 15.39.51Shell Scarf

A great project that I found in the new Noro Crochet Book. 2013-07-10 09.15.44
The scarf was designed by Mary Jane Hall.
Pattern is well written out and only over 4 rows and then you repeat the rows till you are finished…
I only used two skeins of  Noro Silk Garden Lite  about  272.0 yards (248.7m) and a hook 4mm or (G)2013-06-01 11.21.19

Ein tolles Projekt, das ich in dem neuen Noro Häkeln Buch gefunden hatte.

2013-06-02 11.41.54Der Schal wurde von Mary Jane Halle entworfen.  Das Muster ist gut geschrieben und nur über 4 Reihen und dann wiederholst Du die Zeilen, bis der Schal fertig ist …

Ich habe nur zwei Stränge von Noro Silk Garden Lite etwa  248.7Meter und einem Häkel nummer 4mm oder (G) gebraucht.

Crochet…with Noro Yarn!!!

DSC04024_medium2[1]Luxury Crochet Scarf

With only  2 skeins of this “Noro Taiyo Sock” yarn….about 924 yarns or 845 meters that gave e a nice comfortable length…I use a 4mm hook size but one could use a bigger hook too and the end result would be much lighter and looser in the chain….fun too…never not try new thing.  Be unique and have fun playing with your needle or hook size…you never know what will happen …amazing results I promise You.Crochet Shawl in Noro
I enjoy knitting or crocheting with all  NORO YARNS….just so much fun the colours just come together in sooo many fun ways…never the same …you always will have a one of a kind creation…every time…so let start with this one…

DSC04022_medium2Wunderbarer Gehäkelter Schal

Mit nur 2 Stränge von “Noro Taiyo Sock” etwa 845 Meter Luaflänge. Ich benutze eine 4mm Hakelgröße aber man könnte einen größeres Häkel auch dazu benützen und das Endergebnis würde viel leichter und lockerer in der Masche sein … Spaß sollte man ja auch haben dabei und immer lust auf etwas Neues zu haben… Tolle Muster können da entstehen.

Schau nur die Farben an so Spielend ….gar nicht langweilig zum Stricken. Jeder Schal gestrickt mit Noro ist ein einzig artiges Werk.

Knitted Baby Banket

I am having some fun knitting some Baby items lately.

  My daughter has this wonderful teacher how is going to be a daddy very soon.  He is a very helpful and kind teacher to the kids and there parents.  So we thought we will make something special for his new Baby.  We are not sure if they are expecting a boy or Girl Baby so the colours are kind of mixed so a Boy or Girl could enjoy snuggling in it.

I used several different patterns that I had fund on Ravely and included some of my own too.  Around every square I used a chain crochet stitch.  Sewed them all together and with one row of chain crochet stitch finished it up.  The yarn I used is “Cascade 220 Yarn Wool” 100% Peruvian Highland Wool.


Ich habe im Moment spass mit all den Baby Pullis oder Decken zum stricken 

Meine Tochter hat einen sehr netten Lehrer der in kürze Vater wird.  Er ist sehr hilsfbereit und hat eine gute Kommunation mit den Kindern wie auch Eltern.  So dachten wir das auch Er etwas besonderes haben soll für sein  baby.  Wir haben keine Ahnung ob es ein Bueb oder Mädchen ist  so die Fraben gehen für Beide.

Ich habe verschieden Muster von Ravely gefunden und dann auch noch meine Eigenen.  Dann umhäckelte jedes Viereck mit einer chain Reihe.  Nähte alle zusammen und häckelte noch eine Chain Reihe rund herum.  Die Wolle die ich dafür brauchte is “Cascade 220” 100% Peruvian Highland Wool.
