Time flies

and so did I. The recent gap in posting here has been caused by a little vacation. Suddenly it was time to fly to Paris. This was just a short stop to change to the train to get to Nantes, where I visited a friend. It’s been a lovely time full of good food and nice strolls. And of course a bit of knitting. I …

Blaue Phase

I have some new yarn! Isn’t it beautiful? I wasn’t able to resist long after seing it in my LYS on my last visit. Linea a gorgeous linen yarn and all the colours it comes in are just lovely. I finally gave in and bought the cobalt blue one which is the pefect summer colour for me at the moment because it combines the blues …

Zehensocken

Welcome to my slowest project so far. It took me 6 years, I guess. I can only guess because I can’t even remember when I started it. I dated it because of the wool I found with it in the same bag a couple of weeks ago. It’s the leftover from my green mohair sweater I knit in 2005/06. And it’s definitely sitting in the …

Immerhin etwas…

Originally I had planned to do a tutorial on switching between colours in intarsia knitting, like you have to do for the sleeves of Eloise, today. But after I repaired my bike and cleaned it’s chain first thing in the morning my hands now look anything but picture worthy. This isn’t for lack of scrubbing, I can assure you that…so the tutorial has to wait. …

Eloise – Pattern

I finished my latest pattern just in time for may! The little blouse is a cheerful top-down summer top with short, puffy raglan sleeves. The two colours are fun to knit and make it easy to combine. Cooling cotton is a comfortable choice for spring and summer wear. I already wore it a couple of times and can asure you that it’s quite comfy, holds …

Jeans, 1. Probe

I just finished going through all my blog posts and repairing them where needed. It took me almost a week and I hope all posts are complete again. There might be still some links that will send you back to blogger, though. I fixed some but not all, I fear. The up side to all this digging through old news has been seeing my progress …
