I've finished a shawlette, knitted with yarn by Knitting Spiro. It is a bit more green than turquoise in the original, the photo doesn't represent the colours correctly. I did two repeats of feather and fan pattern and then stockinette stitch for a while alternatingly.
I recently got into cross-stitching again after many many years, it turns out to be a good thing to do for me in stressful times. So, to my own astonishment I saw myself suddenly finishing a picture I started over a decade ago, after I had bought the cross-stitch set on ebay and then after stitching the outline of the carpet had given up. I really hadn't expected myself to finish it before my retirement. ;-)
The pattern book with the snowdrop fairy I had bought at about the same time, and used the momentum to finally make something fitting the season out of it. ;-) Let's see if the trend continues...
And of course I also knitted. ;-)
I finished this cardigan recently. I completely overestimated how much
yarn I'd need - I had actually intended to make an off-white cardigan
(but admit it would have been a bother to keep clean), but thought the
store didn't have enough and opted for a colour I wear very often
instead. I have almost as much yarn left over as I have used up.
This shawl is "Forest Foliage" from Botanical knits 2 by Alana Dakos.
The edging is not quite how it is supposed to be; I ran out of yarn but
didn't want to undo a whole line of leaves and make it smaller either,
so I improvised.
Last week my tooth crown broke and the remaining part tried to saw off my tongue, so a very spontaneous visit to the dentist was in order. Since I got squeezed in only two hours after I asked for an appointment I expected waiting time even though the practice is normally extremely well organized and you hardly spent time in the waiting room - the perfect excuse to buy more yarn on the way. ;-) I did them injustice, I got treated even before my appointment time and did not knit one stitch. But the next shawl is finished alread anyway. ;-)
I think it looks like new snow with the hint of silver thread in it. The lace pattern is from Stricken - die schönsten Muster.
I am a tiny bit tempted to buy another skein and make it bigger, though
it admittedly is an ok size and I don't neeed to be able to completely
disappear in *all* my shawls. ;-)
The pattern for this hat is Tensfield. I made wrist warmers to go with it - and I still have yarn left from the one
100g skein I used, not sure if I should also make ankle warmers to use
it up. ;-)
Addicted to knitting since the Mid-Eighties. Started to make jewelry out of wire and beads at about the same time. Also, very prone to addictions to tv-series, which sometimes shows up in the knitting and the jewelry. ;-)
