knits

it is just not right

I started and finished a cowl.

Right now I am looking for another knit. Something smaller, at least in the beginning, that I can carry around, take on trips. So I’m shopping my stash and find not only a surprisingly good amount of yarn to choose from, but also more WIPs. not-fair. I thought I listed all in my last busted post. But no, there is also the mini hexagon table cloth I started about a year ago and the dotted rays by westknits, which I realize just now I never shared before. Although that one was quite a bitch! Beautiful knitting

niebling as a blanket

FO – the blanket that was a doily

Some pictures, finally! The blanket is now comfy on my lap, warming me, not only from the outside, but from the inside too. It makes me happy. It makes me smile. If it was food, I’d say it’s soul-food. I rarely feel such pleasure when finishing something. This blanket was an idea I had six years ago. Back then there was another lacy blanket very popular. I can’t recall it’s name, though I would recognise it the minute I see it. It took the idea of a classic table doily and using the thickest warmest yarn it was turned into a beautiful cover up for those cold evenings you spend on a sofa, cuddled up.

Busted – 1st edition

So this year will be the year I finally clean my house of all the wips and ufos. It’s decided. It will happen. It started already. It’s also the year of thinking before casting on. Yes thinking. Like do I need a new red cardigan? Yes I do! But – I will be disciplined and finish at least one from the ufo mountain before I start a new one. And so the year started and so it will go on. I’m positive.

Let’s have a look, shall we?

FINISHED:

on deciding what’s next

I want to make another cyclone hat for myself. One that’s a bit thinner. I love love love the one I have right now as it’s effing freezing cold at the moment in Berlin and this one is super warm, but I’m also thinking ahead and winters are also long and grey and mainly windy (not so much effing freezing usually) and a nice thinner hat will be fun. Actually any new hat would be fun, let’s be honest 🙂

I’ve been thinking about using the madelintoshs I have left over from knitting the Batads (1 & 2) I made last year..
