knits

me and yarn close up

Coming next – 3x finished objects

During summer I was knitting pretty constantly. I was lazy on the blog but never put down the needles longer than a few days in a row. Took my knitting with me on travels, knitted in the evenings with a good movie. The only time I didn’t knit was working time. (I do envy YarnHarlot here a lot, whenever I see her posting a picture of her knitting during a meeting, I want to do that in my office too. My colleagues would find that very odd and maybe even suspisous though. I’ll have to work on that…)

so let me teasing you… ๐Ÿ™‚

In the mood for..

…knitting and then again not so much.
Right now I’m working on a pullover, an enchanted mesa and I give daily updates on myย instagram, which is kinda motivating and fascinating at the same time. For once I get to finally see how much time I actually spend on one piece and also it’s amazing to see it grow, in pictures, even if it’s just a few rounds and when you have it on your lap it feels like nothing. You know this, not motivating at all. It’s mainly stockinette which is great for watching movies and traveling but not so much for keeping interest.

spring in berlin

Framed – March 2017

March was pretty calm over here, I started with a cold and ended March with my obligatory two weeks of hay fever. A lot of sniffing.

In genereal March was working, only a little bit of knitting and mostly being happy about the sparks of joy the spring can bring. When nature wakes up from its beauty sleep. Oh my – I love this – fresh green, popping colors, forcing their way into the grey world. Besides that last week/weekend we had temperatures that equal summer! o_O in March.

herringbone green diana

FO – herringbone #1 the green one

Hello dearies ๐Ÿ™‚

it’s spring and everything’s getting green and fresh and all that jazz, I love it!!

And I love wearing my first herringbone cowl. To be honest it’s the first cowl I ever made, and I was sceptical about the cowl in itself, like how it will wear and if it won’t be too big or too small. But no, this one is a clear yes! When I saw the pic on malabrigos insta-feed I feel in love (also the name of the colorway was my name so it felt like fate to make it) – but I think you know this already, I blogged a bit about it ๐Ÿ™‚ hereย for example, which you should click if you like progress pics and want to drool a little.
