Finally...

... found a way to log on my good old blog.  I've lost not only my password but also my log in but I got a way to recover my data.

I might blog again about my knitwork in the near future but of course I can be contacted through Ravelry also, if needed.  :)

Happy Knitting!

Bleh.

I almost forgot I promissed to blog the Abrazo FO, so here it is. It was fun to knit, I like adding beads to my knitting, it holds back a little but I like the result. 





Now... I have this Featherweight Cardigan on my needles. I call it 'What's the fuzz Cardi', because really... what IS the fuzz about this pattern.  I've read SO much about it on Ravelry and of course I was stupid enough to buy the pattern. I kicked myself a few times already. I'd frog it and throw the pattern  in the bin, but I used some wonderful Wollmeise and that's the reason that keeps me from frogging. The pattern is very easy, but you have to figure out yourself if the back is going to be too wide, if the fronts are going to be too narrow, the sleeves are going to be too big, too long, not long enough, if you're going to do a closure, a rolling border,.... and so on. So... hence the blog title: BLEH!  I have to knit another sleeve and then pick up stitches for the collar/border, pfff. 
The colours are beautiful together though, so I will keep knitting. And of course I'll come and show the finished What's The Fuzz Cardi. ;-)

Pixie Dust

I have another shawlett on the blocking pads.  It's Abrazo by Susanna IC. I used HolstGarn Supersoft in a lovely blue called 'Iced'. I'll come and show it when I'm back from our trip to Disneyland Paris. Whoot! We're staying a week at Disneyland Hotel, double whoot!




See you next week!

Pretty in Pink.

Pattern: Annis
Yarn: Wollmeise Twin Ungl├╝cksrabe, probably Tutu.

Very Pink Annis and Pogona TaDaaahhh.

I don't know why I'm knitting this again, but I just have to. I'm using a VERY pink yarn. Wollmeise Tutu, it's a bright ballerina,- hence the name-, pink. I was going to use it in a Fair Isle project, with a lot of other colours, but I thought Miss Pollymoggle could use a pink shawl to cover her shoulders when she's wearing her pretty hot pink summer dress.




 
And, as promissed the Pogona Tadahhhh.  I'm very pleased with the outcome of this pattern, it's different of what I'm used to, very easy, quick, a little bit boring, but if you are knitting in public, in your chitterchatter knitting group or in front of the TV, this is the perfect project. AND it's pretty.

Today's soup is Pogona.

It's the first time -that I'm aware of- that I'm knitting a pattern that was designed by a male knitter.  Stephen West designed some cool stuff to knit, for people who don't like lace knits, or... like me... who do like lace knits but want something mindless now and then.  I chose Pogona, because of the nice drape. It's easy. Pretty. Quick. But oh so boring to do. But that's just me, of course. The yarn I'm using is Wollmeise Twin called Gazpacho. I think a multicoloured yarn is perfect for this pattern, the change of colour shows the shape of the shawlette perfectly.

The thing is eating yarn though, I have at least another 14 rows (520+ stitches) to go and there's already 112 grams gone. Of course I'll come back to show off the 'Tadddaahh', but in the meanwhile; a preview:

Happy Day!

Today my mailbox was filled with some wonderful Wollmeise from a friend who bought it for me at the 'Vogelhochzeit' which is a summer sale at the Wollmeise brick and mortar store in Pfaffenhofen. Can one be in love with this lucious yarn?

Now.... what to knit next?
