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.
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.
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.
Finally I get to blog these hot pants aka hotpants! I started knitting them last summer, and they have actually been ready for quite some time now, but as always it takes time to get some photos and and and..!
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.
I was going through my year last weekend, and decided it would be nice to pull together my knitting highlights and the steps I've taken to build my site! So here it is: the best of Worsted Knitt in 2010!
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.
