Long time no see.
A long winter is slowly coming to an end, and with the increased daylight comes new energy for humans and nature. I have not spent much time in my sewing room lately, but my knitting needles have been kept quite busy.
Since sewing room activity has been on the back burner, I has not much to show, but since I am quite determined to not start more projects right now, everything is under some kind of relative control.
I did work on these small stitcheries during March, but not many, so I have some unfinished blocks to bring in to April too.
I have not started any new stitcheries, for which I am quite proud, but I have some on my list I want to do after I am done with these small gems.
Through March I finished (ripped back and started again /Ufo ) the orange pair of potholders + used up the rest of the green yarn from stash for 2 more pairs. One of the pairs are given to someone dear as a gift.
As I like to bake bread, my potholders are constantly used, and the ones we had was worn pretty thin.
Note to self: Yarn bought online is not always what you think colour wise or quality wise when it arrives at your home.
Generic yarn brands are not the same as the top shelf brands - nuff said 🙈
I have another sweater on the needles - 100 % merino wool. It is a good yarn to knit with.
I should be knitting smaller things rather than big sweaters. My hands would thank me
I feel an urge to stitch coming - see you soon 💓
I have the book with the embroidered hexagons but have never made them - maybe one day. Your sweater looks so intricate in designReplyDelete
Your little stitcheries are delightful, like karen you are inspiring me, I want to pull my book out too. Purchasing yarn online is always a bit of a lottery, unless you have had the same yarn previously.ReplyDelete
oh du warst aber sehr fleissig und deine stickereien sind wunderschön. viel spass beim weitermachen liebe grüsse elfriedeReplyDelete
Your little embroideries are so beautiful! I really like the sweater you made but I agree, what you see online doesn't always turn out to be what you think it will be. Happy stitching!ReplyDelete
Those little stitcheries are so cute......ReplyDelete
