Tuuletin, Shapeshifter and shells




Finished early in the morning today before I went to work, because I absolutely had to wear it. ;-). The pattern is Tuuletin by Steffi.



Finished already last month and worn often already instead of an autumn jacket. Very warm and snuggly. It started out to become a normal cardigan, but I realized I didn't have enough yarn for it. So, it ended up becoming a shrug and shall now be known as "shapeshifter". ;-)



A cross stitch picture to remind me of the lovely vacation this year. :-)

It's one of three, there is another one with a cat facing left and a third with one facing right.

Cell phone bag


My mother wanted a cell phone bag she could wear diagonally on her body so she would feel the phone vibrate. Made from cotton yarn scraps.

Shawlette


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.

Some cross-stitching and a cardigan


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.

The lace pattern is from Omas Strickgeheimnisse, the cut is improvised.
