Oh my, oh my I've been very bad at posting... but that's because I've been very bad a knitting. I'm just not feeling the mojo at the moment, and I don't intend to force myself either. But I sure hope you enjoy my (less frequent) posts anyway.

My husband is currently showing some of his artwork in a business premises which is currently unleased. The owner asked my hubby to create a piece of art to drew attention to the premises - he did, and also he organized an exhibition with some other artists as well.

Strangling vine shawls metamorphosis to a cowl

The cowl

Now this is an interesting knit which started as something else than it finally ended up being! It's another one of my older knits I never got round to blogging about before.

I-cord cowls in every possible colour

Small cowl
Big cowl

Remember when I told you that items knitted with i-cord seem to be in after I saw them again and again at the H+H craft fair?

 

The funny thing is that's exactly how I knit a few weeks back!

Two first times with one project - crochet and t-shirt yarn

Crocheted squares

Last year I tried my hand at making t-shirt yarn. You know the one where you cut old t-shirts into strips and pull these into thick "yarn"? I cut 4 t-shirts and an old tricot shirt of mine and worked these into yarn. They "marinated" in my stash for a while, until a few weeks back I decided to see if I could crochet little baskets of them.

More Ruffles!

Ruffle yarn
Worsted Knitt

This ruffle yarn seems to be very "in" currently. I picked up some this summer from Finland. In fact, the brand I bought is a German yarn, which is pretty funny: travelling to Finland, buying German yarn and bringing it back to Germany :) But at that time, I had not seen that yarn here. Now it's everywhere!

 

So I made a scarf, too. I cast on 8 stitches, and knit until I had two balls used up. The result: a very ruffly, ca 180 cm long scarf.

Guerilla Knitting in Bocholt

The exhibition

It's been a week since I went to Bocholt with some new knitting friends of mine. Why did we go there? Well, we wanted to see the knitting exhibition (link in German) the textile museum has on at the moment, and we wanted to have a good time knitting in the train there and back.

FO: Striped Matrix basket

Striped basket

A while back I made a lot of baskets for the home - one of the green ones now holds (some of) my knitting, the other is used for Wii gear, and a few small ones I never blogged about are being used by my DH. These baskets have come in so handy, I decided to make one more for my "stuff". This is what I created.
