vince noir – rock’n’roll star

i used my „noir“ mighty boosh stencil again to make another booshy shirt! this time a quite summery one…

i love how it turned out and i’ll wear it with pride although hardly anybody knows the boosh in germany. but it’s a cool shirt anyway :) at least the scotsmen will recognize it on our scotland trip (where we hopefully have good enough weather to wear tops at all 😉 )

clapotis finished!

tadaaaa, here it is. i really love how it turned out after washing and blocking :) looks really shiny and bright in the sunlight… can’t wait for a cooler day to wear it. oh, did i just say that?!

i ended up knitting one repeat less in the increase section and 19 repeats in the straight section. i think i could have done one more repeat, but i panicked that i would run out of yarn 😉 after blocking the clapotis measures 30cm x 152cm.

deep loch

just got this lovely skein of wollmeise 100% merino with the post. my mom bought it for me at the „sindelfinger handwerkermarkt“ because wollmeise don’t sell any yarn online at them moment!

the yarn is called „tiefer see“, which means deep lake. i’ll call it „deep loch“ because this will be the yarn i take with me to our scotland trip :) i think it’s going to be a montego bay scarf – the perfect mindless holiday knit.

i cast on to see if the montego bay pattern, the yarn and 4.5mm needles worked out… they do, don’t you think?!

kool aid dying

my first try with kool aid! i used cherry, tropical punch and grape for this yarn… hm, what do you think?

can’t wait to see how it knits up – as usual… thought i might use the yarn for aquaphobia socks?!

thanks a lot to matthias for buying the stuff for me in the us :)
