How Time Goes On

Have you thought that too?

Well I have …

Listening to songs and falling into the world of music. Honestly I can’t remember when I last had the TV on.

OMG that used to be my side noise to knitting my ohhh so many projects. That I have lately neglected. Not sure what has changed in me. But even my knitting has slowed down. Got to find my heart again… yet it is at the water lately lots… taking pictures and seeing the peaceful waves rolling into the shores. Something said for that wonderful sunset too.

Absolutely need to find my motjo again… and get creating. I have soooo much yarn in my stash… honestly not sure what I was thinking… Perhaps I’ll have a new carrier … I’ll be sailing on the sailboat, enjoying the evening sunset with a glass of wine & my knitting…lol in the South one day perhaps…

Dreams are possible … for now it is at the marina close by…

Learning to Sail now… sooo loving it

How have you been enjoying this summer so far? Tell me .. text me.. Love to hear form you .

Swing Linen Throw-on

Ohhhh what a gem to have in my Closet.  Knit with Linen “Firefly” and so light feathery and airy….I just love to wear this.  Well believe it or not. I suggested this would be a great pattern for me to knit for Wendy for her store.  She agreed….I smiled.  But half way though I went so see to her and told her I don’t think this yarn and pattern will work.   The stitches were so uneven I really did not think any of her costumers will buy the yarn and or would be interested  in knitting this for them selfs…..well Wendy told me she loves it and I should continue.

She will take the heat…hahhahah.

So I did….and guess what this is the second time I told her I am not sure about it.

  And the end result is so beautiful and I love it.

  I have to say, the yarn was a ????? to me,  as I mentioned very uneven stitches as I was knitting with size 5 and 6mm needles.

Once I was finished I soaked the “Throw-on”  in cold wather.  Then dried it in the sun,oh it was just  like a burlap sack.

  So I put it in the dryer for about 5 minutes and WOW, soooo incredibly soft, the stitches were all nice and even.  I could not believe my eyes…..I have bought the yarn to knit one for me now.

  Wendy you just can’t be the only one owning one of them…hahah.

Lucky  Wendy and me. FUn fun fun for the Spring and Summer……we will be so hipp….

The Pattern you can download from .  or  Send me a message if you have any questions.  I am always happy to help.  HAPPY EASTER

Ohhhh, was für ein Juwele

 so etwas in meinem Schrank zu haben. Habe das mit Linen “Firefly”Gestricket es ist so federleicht und luftig …. es ist so schön as zu tragen.  Ich schlug Wendy vor, das dass ein gutes Muster sei für die  Linen “Firefly” Garn das Sie im Geschäft verkauft. Sie willigte ein …. Ich lächelte.  Doch halb fertig gestricket sage ich mir und auch Wendy , “ich glaube nicht, dass dieses Garn und Muster schön heraus kommt”.  Die Stiche waren so Unregelmaessig dass ich nicht glaubte dass  einer ihrer Kundinnen das Garn kaufen  würde  oder interesse hat dieses für sich zu stricken  ….. doch Wendy sagte mir, sie liebt es und ich sollte es zu Ende stricken.  Sie nehmen die Hitze … hahhahah …. und ratet mal, dass ist schon das zweite Mal, dass ich sagte, ich bin nicht sicher.   Und das Endergebnis ist so schön. Ich muss sagen, was das Garn angeht war ich nicht sicher da ich sehr uneben Stiche hatte beim Stricken, braucht die Größe 5 und 6mm Nadeln zum Strickte.

 Sobald ich fertig war, durchnässt ich das  Gewände mit kaltem Wasser.  Dann trocknete ich es in der Sonne, ohhh es war wie ein Jutensack.  So loss in den Trockner für etwa 5 Minuten und WOW, soooo unglaublich weich kam es heraus und die Maschen alle schön gleichmäßig. Ich konnte meinen Augen nicht glauben ….. Ich habe das Garn auch gleich gekauft damit ich es auch für mich selber stricken kan.

  Wendy kann einfach nicht die einzige Besitzerin sein … hahah. Lucky  Wendy und ich.  Das Muster kann man von Garnstudio Drop Gratis helunderladen oder   fuer weiter Fragen bin ich immer da.  FROHE OSTERN

#22 Long Pointelle Coat
by Michele Rose Orne
from Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2008

This was a fun project especially since I made two of them. The first one was too small so I gave it to my daughter and made another one for myself. Fun and light to wear in a hot day if you like to cover up or on a cooler summer evening.
