Knitted Baby Booties

gestrickte Babyschuhe 1

Today I’m finally writing about knitting again! About tiny cute knitted baby booties to be precise. I have knitted them already twice this year as presents for friends. The knitting pattern is Oh Baby! Baby Booties by DoubleDiamondKnits, which I had laying around here for years. The same goes for the warm merino wool of the two-coloured version and the cotton of the green booties. These are remnants …

Knitted Finished Objects of Others – Lace Scarf

It’s show and tell once again. 🙂 How I love this! This time I want to show you two lovely lace scarfs knitted by Petra. She used my Sainte-Marie scarf pattern and knitted a lovely pink lace scarf and a white version for summer (which is finally here) in almost no time. And we are talking two weeks – no time – here! The look just …

Finished Objects of Others – Summer 14

Today I want to share with you some pictures that reached me this summer. They are of finished objects that were made with my patterns and made me mightily happy when I saw them. So here are my favorites: A lovely Feathers Shawlette by Theresa Mock. I especially love the colours of the yarn! This beautiful nautical Sainte-Marie Scarf has been knitted by B-Schimbera. She knew the …

Finished Object Friday – my pink Elinor Shawlette

worn pink Elinor Shawlette

My pink Elinor Shawlette is finally blocked, dry and I took some nice pictures of it today! I love the way it turned out and am still especially in love with the border at the ends of this shawl – it just looks like a spiked dragon tail to me. I also updated the knitting pattern yesterday and hopefully made it easier to follow. I also …

Tschüss 2013!

2013 is almost over. Only one day is left and so I thought, I’ll give you a quick update on Sheldon the turtle. I managed to finish it in time and parents and child have been delighted. Okay, I admit it’s hard to say that of a month-old baby, but I decided to take it as a good sign that she was interested enough in …

Finished Object Friday – Knitted Acorns

I spent last saturday evening at home on my couch stuffing the little acorns I knitted and glueing them to their bases. Just in time before the craft fair they were meant to decorate. It also proved to be the perfect task for that evening: I still had a cold and was curling up on my couch rewatching old Gilmore Girls episodes while there was …

Fertiges zum Freitag – Driving Gloves in Schwarz

Wie vorgestern versprochen, gibt es heute mal wieder ein fertiggestelltes Projekt zu bestaunen: meine schwarzen Driving Gloves sind endlich fertig! Das heißt, gestrickt, verstopft, gewaschen und mit Knöpfen versehen. Das Wetter ist zwar inzwischen morgens wirklich zu kalt dafür (heute waren es nur 3°C), aber der nächste Frühling kommt bestimmt und dann bin ich gewappnet. Ich weiß, dafür wie wenige Zeit man eigentlich für diese …

Fertiges zum Freitag – Dome Hat in zwei Farben

Wie am Mittwoch versprochen, gibt es heute mal wieder ein fertiges Stück zu bewundern: die zweifarbige Mütze ist seit dem Wochenende fertig. Ich habe es schon geschafft Fotos zu machen – sogar mit der Kuppel, die das Design inspirierte! Was soll ich noch viel dazu sagen, außer vielleicht, dass die Anleitung für die zweifarbige Version natürlich auch in der neuen Strickanleitung enthalten sein wird und …
