Elinor is finally blocking and more

I am having a couple of days off this week and so I finally have some time on my hands again for the more interesting things in life… like crafting and blogging. The big news is already in the title: I blocked my pink Elinor today. I finished knitting it almost four weeks ago, but never made it to weaving in the ends and blocking …

Little Progress on my pink Elinor Shawlette

I made little progress with my pink Elinor Shawlette as the title suggests. Just a few rows here and there. But it’s growing and as the rows are getting shorter now, it feels like I’m making tremendous progress anyway… And I thought, you might like to see the pictures. This post is part of Tami’s Amis WiP Wednesday and Ginny’s

Pink again – further progress on my Elinor Shawlette

Elinor Shawlette Progress 7

I finally finished the purple mid-section of my Elinor Shawlette and have begun knitting in the original pink colour-gradient yarn again. I’m really pleased with the way this mid-section turned out and surely will be including instructions for it in the pattern update. Other than that, I haven’t crafted anything this past week. Although the linen I dyed some weeks ago is starting to cause a really bad conscience, …

Half-finished Elinor Shawlette in pink

140423_5 Elinor Shawlette

I have finished knitting more than half of my pink Elinor Shawlette! Last weekend I finally made a decision on how to work the middle section and now it’s smooth sailing. I settled on some left-over fingering weight shetland yarn in purple. It matches the colours of the colour-gradient yarn quite nicely and I like the sharply defined colour change in contrast to the slowly …

The pink Elinor Shawlette is growing

Elinor Shawlette Detail

Slowly, but surely my pink version of the Elinor Shawlette is growing. I’ve knitted 9 full lace repeats and am ready to head into the short row section in the middle. I’ve calculated that I should have used up only 43 to 44% of the yarn yet. The scale says I’m left with 55g of the 99g that were there at the start. So I …

Zwischenstand 26.03.2014 – Elinor Shawlette

Actually I have rather a lot of finished objects to share, but that will have to wait until Friday. So here is my current work in progress: I’m knitting the Elinor Shawlette in a pinkish colour-gradient yarn. I started it a week or two ago and my progress has been rather slow as I’m trying to work on clearifying the wording of the pattern for …

Zwischenstand – 12.02.2014 – Annie Pullover

I started knitting from the last ball yesterday. The second half of my Annie Pullover is nearing it’s completition. This is like so often the moment when I start to wonder if I’m having enough yarn. So I weighted the first half this morning and my scales showed exactly 200 gramms! As I bought nine 50 gramm balls I should be on the save side. …

Zwischenstand 05.02.2014 – Annie Pullover KAL update

The first half of my Annie Pullover ist almost finished. This morning I had only 10 rows left to knit and I think, I’m going to finish it tonight. It looks almost like the complete sweater now, which is motivating me to finish it today, but the thought of having to start knitting the second piece after that from scratch again is a bit demotivating. …

Zwischenstand – Ende Januar

Besser spät als nie und irgendwie etwas ausser der Reihe kommt mein Update zum Pulli. Am Mittwoch Morgen habe ich die Ärmelteile zum eigentlichen Vorderteil auf die Nadel genommen. Das zweite Foto zeigt den Stand einen Tag später. Er sieht schon sehr nach Pulli aus, oder? Das geht verdammt schnell. Better late than never: a photo-update on my sweater. I took these pictures wednesday and …
