pattern: snowbird, vogue knitting fall 2008
yarn: lana grossa, cool wool merino superfein
i love, love, love this pattern. easy to knit, never boring and a lovely result. unfortunately they are really wide. maybe i should have used thinner yarn? anyway, i’m happy with the result and can’t wait to wear them.
pattern: dashing fingerless mittens
yarn: wolle rödel, soft-merino, 100% merino
these mittens are a kind of secret santa gift for scott. i hope they fit and he likes them!
baked apple smell, sweet almond oil, red colouring and some christmasy things…
i knit these socks as christmas present for my dad. it’s not christmas yet, but as he never looks at this blog it’s quite safe to post them already anyway 😉
pattern: loosely based on the thuja socks
yarn: wolle rödel, sock yarn
these socks were a real pain to knit! knitting socks for men is so boring! the don’t want any fancy patterns with cables or lace but have big feet. so you are stuck with a boring pattern for ages and ages!
pattern: slouchy copy cat hat
yarn: wolle rödel, universal, 100% merino
kevin and me are showing off the binary cable hats i knit. matching hats like a strange old couple. except we are neither old nor a couple *lol*
did i mention that i love winding yarn? i guess i have 😉
these are 2 more lovely yarn cakes. all the wollmeise goodness which i wound for a colleague. i just love looking at the yarn! colourways „indisch rot“ (lace) and „tiefer see“ (4ply).
i needed something to wrap my „äpfelchen“ in before i put it in the laptop thingy of my rucksack. the rucksack was not made for such a lovely small notebook, and the macbook was really wobbling around in there, so i sewed this very simple felt cozy/sleeve for my baby:
… is finally finished. yay!
- 400g of austermann mombasa, 100% cotton
- took me about 2 months to knit
- 1.84m long (without fringe)
- really wide and hopefully warm too 🙂
wollmeise yarn is precious. so i try to use every single meter and centimeter of it. this is what i knit yesterday with the leftovers from my clapotis:
i just love wollmeise! whatever you knit from it, it looks and feels wonderful 🙂
