Boyfriend's hat

So finally there was a bit of sun and I took a photo of boyfriend's hat. I'm having a tough time deciding when to change colours so it looks random but harmonious.Needles: 5mm circularYarn: Noro Cash Iroha colours 108 and 1Pattern: Ranger Hat by Anni Laine (free Ravelry download) On Saturday evening I went to see an ice hockey match. I actually also went to one 2 Saturdays ago but forgot the camera.My town's team lost by 4 points!!! but still I like the game and the others did play better. Happy Sunday!

Lacey scarf

On the needles at the moment are : 1/ Lizzy socks, still not done, only a third of the second sock left.2/ The orange cardigan, still comatose... just not interested at the moment.3/ Lacey scarf aka Leaf Scarf by Nerdcoop. She wrote up a beautiful pdf file with the pattern and a great chart but she doesn't feel it's worthy of being put up on Ravelry... I disagree but anyway, this is what it looks like: Yup, those are leaves! It will look alot better when it's had a good pinning down and steam.I reached the halfway point this... [Lire la suite]

The scarf is fun

The scarf and I are now best friends. This is nothing like last winter's scarf wasteland where I thought I would never get back into something so pretty and pleasant to knit again. Now, let me remind you that this is my first Entrelac knitting, so I am still quite dependant on the instructions for the increasing and decreasing triangles on the sides. It all started out fine, I even wanted to see the effect after blocking so I took my 12 first centimeters to the ironing board and gave the pretty thing a good steam. Then, happy... [Lire la suite]

Back from the far east !

I'm sorry for the long wait between posts... but you're about to understand how occupied I was. In the correct order : A nice photo (thank you morning sun) of the yarn I received from Jon at Easy Knits This is the best I could do for season spirit (don't put up a tree for just me). Last Friday, I left directly from work to go to Aachen in Germany to celebrate a friend's birthday. It was a weekend thing and we were a group of 16! It was really nice to be with friends for a weekend, we all live in different parts of... [Lire la suite]

New sock for ... can't remember !

OK, one photo session took place at lunch... I came straight home from work ravenous and knew exactly what I wanted to eat... Took advantage of cooking time to take photos in half-decent light... but totally forgot I'm supposed to buy a book for someone until too late this evening... Never mind I've got great photos for you, well there not blurry, that's something! First, a few details of the November socks (Barcelona socks) by Mona Schmidt:     And the newly cast on sock: These are jaywalker socks,... [Lire la suite]

At home in my pyjamas !

That's right I am at HOME !!!This week has been crazy : meeting people I didn't expect to meet, sleeping in places I hadn't planned to, doing things I didn't even think I would do... First of all, I took the plane to Kosice on Monday, pretty straightforward in theory! It went fine, have to transfer in Prague, so I used the time to put music into my phone/MP3 which was a success. When I got on the bus that takes us out to the plane (a really small one with propellors!!!), I met 2 people who work for the company I was visiting.... [Lire la suite]

Plodding along in scarf wasteland

I haven't posted about this yet because it's soooo boring... As the title says, I'm lost in scarf all knit rows wasteland. I've done something like 30 cm from when I took it up again so only another 10-15 to do.I do notice though that I knit really reluctantly when it's not interesting: the scarf is being neglected and I can't find the energy to just attack it and get it over with, the finishings of the gipsy pullover I am dreading (200 stitches wide of 2x2 rib and 2 other strips less wide).But, I may have found a knitting club in...

Hello November !

I just changed the page on my calendar to November... only one page left on it! Have to get me a new one... but I don't know what type I want this year: kittens and puppies, a town (had Ipswich this year) , flowers, a funny one... I just got back from a lovely 2 days with a couple of Friends, the high points were going to the circus (thank god for Ventoline!), going for a 30km bike ride, mostly flat but still a good distance for someone who hasn't been near a bike in I think 5 years and going shopping for shoes and new outfits for...

I'm wearing a finished sock ...

... and it's the right size and shape, maybe not quite tight enough to qualify for a shoe wearing sock but feels great on the foot and will be worn in slippers to protect me from my tiled living room floor. And here is a finished sock photo (drum roll) I am very proud of this and am going to cast on the twin this evening before I get stuck with second sock syndrome !!!
