Oh nooo….I just noticed, as I was adding the Berner Oberland Pullover
I looks like I totally neglected to show you one of my latest pattern published in A Needle Pulling Thread in the Winter 2016/2017 issue that was published in April 2017 .
Available in three different sizes and knit in worsted weight yarn. I love working with cables and try to add one in all my designs.
If you like you can purchase the pattern though the link above
Blowing 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 .
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! )
Ohh what can I knit with all this leftover yarn?
A topic we all know to well…we work on one project and then either we do not have enough yarn or too much. But what can we use that for to nice to just throw away…I think.
I am laughing at times. I have so many gorgeous yarns in my stash that are waiting for YES…
“That Perfect Project”
Believe me, I will find one just give me time.
However I tend to go to my leftover yarns and use them up most of the time.
I just can’t see it sitting around to long …As my mother would say when we chat on Skype. Oh Jacqueline “How many scarfs or shawls do you need?” LOL never enough winters are cold here in Canada… same as in Switzerland just much longer. You can belive me add-on one month on each ende of the winter then you have Canada weather easily….
Anyway let’s forget about the weather, back to knitting I really love to just be creative and work something up as I go.

A Neck roll form I had around the home and so it became my
