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..

Totally thrilled how this  vest turned out. I call it the “Tirano Vest.

I can’t wait to see how my new “Flower Power” coat will look once done…but until then I hope we have some more sunshine soon…

2014-03-03 17.10.27Wow es ist schon wieder August?!

Würde es nie denken… ja schon wieder ein regnerischen, kalten Tag und das schon fuer drei Tage.
So hier dann etwas Farbe da ich die Sonne Euch nicht senden kann.

Farben, ja, das kann ich mit meinen Strick bringen, doch dieses mal wird es Häkeln sein.

 

In den letzten paar Monaten habe ich Quadrate gehäckelt. 2014-08-13 13.06.42
