Having returned from our two weeks holiday in Egypt last Thursday I quickly started with new knitting projects so I can happily join Ginnys Yarn along again today.
I had bought two knitting pattern magazines before we went on holiday and brought back all my mum’s old yarn so I was trying to figure out how to make that beautiful jumper I found in one of the magazines with wool I have. I think I might now have found enough wool to get going but first of all I wanted to start with a christmas present. Can’t show you much at the moment as I need to wait until people from my family won’t check my blog for some last posts on our holiday anymore so I will show you in some weeks.I can only say that much: it will be absolute beautiful 😉
After visiting my grandparents on the weekend I came home yet with another christmas project at hand: a pair of knit-felted slippers (the tutorial is a guest post at Marigold’s loft) for my grandma. As I’m absolutely positive that she won’t read my blog, I can show the progress on this (those shoes don’t take that much time) . And when I’ve finished I think, I will start another pair as guest slippers with all the leftover knit-felting wool so they’ll be quite colourful I guess.
And after reading last weeks Yarn Along I stumbled upon a pattern for an seamingly easy lace shawl that I wanted to try as another christmas present. I found some lacy light green yarn in my Mum’s left overs that was just the yarn for it. But after trying the pattern I altered it completely and now I really like it. And it’s a fast knit.
When it comes to reading, after two weeks of extensive reading I am back to “Liebe im Exil” by Edith Anderson and I brought back a detective story from my grandparent’s house.
