What’s on my needles

As spring is feeling more and more like summer, I’m already working on my next summer top in cotton. It’s going pretty quickly so far. 🙂 And now I’m off to my nice knitting place on the balcony. Der Frühling fühlt sich langsam aber sicher immer mehr an, als wäre es schon Sommer. Passend dazu stricke ich fleißig an meinem zweiten Top aus Baumwolle. Bis …

Walking On…

Welcome to this new location of my little blog! To celebrate the move I have been working on a little present: my new “Walking On…” sock pattern in english will be a free download for the first month. Willkommen in der neuen Heimstatt meines kleinen Blogs! Zur Feier des Umzugs gibt es mein neues Strumpf-Strickmuster “Walking On…”  einen Monat lang hier als gratis download auf deutsch.

Work in Progress

Here is my newest WiP: this site. Finally I have my own homepage to host my blog. I hope you’ll like it. It will take a few days more to settle in here and probably some more to recreate the data that has been lost in move. So please be patient with me for a little bit longer. I hope my blogging will be back …

Still alive

…but busy as hell. The past week flew by filled with work so there isn’t any progress to show you. Ok, perhaps I finished something small. And colourful. And knitted. But more on this soon. Ich lebe noch, auch wenn ich grad unglaublich viel zu tun habe. Arbeit und andere vollkommen unspektakuläre Sachen, nichts Vorzeigbares. Obwohl, was Kleines habe ich fertig bekommen. Es ist bunt …

Jeans

The weather is finally reaching temperatures again that are jeans appropriate. So I go back to the idea of last autumn: sewing myself a pair. As you may recall the fabric for them has been already bought and prewashed. I finally also bought a copy of “Pants for any Body”. After the first read I realised that I could use any pattern that comes close …

Me-Made-March: ich war dabei!

I know it’s already April, but I have one last post about Me-Made-March. A month long putting the way you clothe yourself under a magnifying glass deserves a conclusion. So here it is after a short delay because of the intense blogging for Knitting and Crochet Blog Week. I made a big step forward with taking the pictures. I have become much more comfortable in …

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week – Day 7

Knitting and Crochet time / Zeit zu Stricken While this post gets published I’m enjoying some of my favorite knitting times and surroundings: I sit in a train and watch the landscape flying by. It’s really wonderful and peaceful. Usually I have my iPod with me and listen to music or even more often to cast on. Brendy Dayne’s soothing voice is relaxing on it’s …

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week – Day 6

Something to aspire to./Anstreben So after a lot of looking back this week, now is the time for looking into the future. Where will my skills be next year? As the old juggling proverb goes – you get good with what you practise. So I hope my designing skills will improve. Especially writing a pattern in an understandable way is still difficult for me. So …

Me-Made-March 25.-31. März

Wow, that’s a weeks worth of outfits… and almost no time left today to blog. They are actually rather repetitive by now. So quickly on with the pictures: 25. März Can’t find a picture…Probably something cosy like the herringbone trousers and my green mohair sweater again. (Perhaps that’s why there is no picture.) 26. & 27.März me made: skirt, petticoat, panty, (coat) 28. März me …

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week – Day 5

And now for something completely different! / Und jetzt zu etwas völlig Anderem! In the spirit of Monty Python I bring to you a clip, that made me laugh. Be careful – it might be offensive. 😉 Und für alle deutschsprachigen gibt es auch etwas zu Lachen: Radio eins schenkt uns Horst Evers als Podcast! Viel Spaß und einen schönen 1. April noch! 2KCBWDAY5
