Love the feel and look of the yarn and sweater. Used a hook size 3.5mm (E) and all of the 4 skeins (400 grams) I bought for a small/medium but had to hook on for the larger size due to yarn.
One Of My Favourite Yarn
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.
Hardanger Christmas Star
As we all are putting out our christmas decoration up, I came across a special handmade decoration I had made several years ago. This red Christmas Star.
Smiles I was told just last week I should be putting this all out on the tables and not have them in storage.
I was the lucky women to have a mom and grandmother that shown me lots of stuff like knitting, crocheting, tatting, Hardanger stitching and much more.
I have to say this hardanger stitching is really amazing and you better make sure you count each single thread as you go along in the setup of the outside border. Because it will hurt much more to open up all the blocks if you are off by YES ONLY ONE THREAD!
Hardanger embroidery is a form of embroidery traditionally worked with white thread on white even-weave cloth, using counted thread and drawn thread work techniques. Hardanger fabric is an evenweave cotton material woven with pairs of threads of 22 count. The weave gives a squared appearance to the fabric with distinct holes, making it easy to count and work on. DMC Pearl Cotton 5 is ideal for Hardanger Fabric. Use DMC Pearl cotton 8, for more delicate filling stitches and other surface details.
Have a look at some of the table runners most of them my mom did. I stepped out of the box and had to make the red once and one of the beige once for sure. They for sure take a while to finish!
