christmas knitting mania

i’ve been knitting a lot over the last few days… what a christmasy cabeling madness 😉 where is carolin? oh, huddled up on the sofa with her knitting stuff *haha*

so i finished my first cable projects: fingerless mitts and a matching hat…

i already wore the fingerless mitts on the stuttgart christmas market. it was freeeeeezing cold and – put on over my gloves – they really saved my life 😉

the hat was just finished today, fits perfect and i can’t wait to wear it 🙂

here are the patterns:

2nd pair of socks

my mum will get these socks for her birthday 🙂 as you can see, they fit me as well. her feet are a little smaller but also broader. should fit fine…

this time i was a lot faster and my knitting was more steady… they also look more shiny and less linty. maybe also because i used better yarn this time – from lana grossa…

i knitted an easy triangle pattern. should be visible in the photos. with the next pair of socks i’ll try another pattern 🙂

Sixties fabrix from flea market

i just bought this lovely screaming pink fabric on a flea market in bornheim (frankfurt). it’s curtains originally from the 60ties/70ties 🙂

bought 2 for 4€, each of them being about 2.40m x 1.60m – so loads of fabric for future bags…


i’ll throw it in the washer now and think about what i could sew out of this fabric 🙂

5th Bag – „Ottobre’s little Sis“

story: this is a cosmetic bag for my co-worker reingard. she knitted a scarf for me when i was home sick with torn ligaments and i thought i’d sew her a little something in return to say thanks. i still had a lot of fabric and ribbon left i used on the „Ottobre“ bag, so this is like a little sister to it 😉 same fabric and style, different size and pattern.

outer fabric: black/white fabric from IKEA

lining fabric: black linen from IKEA

specialities: zipper (my second one), ribbon and cute little bow.
