Is that just me?

But there are so many awesome patterns for throws/blankets/afghans out there. Approximately 2356 more than I’d actually need. There’s e.g. the Clock-Blanket from Charmed Knits which is just awesome. I’ve also got Debbie Abrahams Blankets and Throws to Knit, where I love all but one or two patterns. The new Knitting Green-book I bought has also a beautiful pattern for a blanket…and then I’m considering for quite a while to knit a patchwork-planket from my leftover yarns…and there are so much other on Ravelry. But apart from taking quite some time to knit you actually can have to much blankets (opposed to socks for example)…*sighs*

Now what did I want to say?

Quite a lot actually. Let’s start with the FO of the week:

That’s Caroline. Well OK it’s a ‘Lace & Button Shawl’ from the Quick & Easy Knits Section from Simply Knitting. But easy projects deserve a pretty name, too 😉 (And yeah it’s named after her. apparently I’m that much of a political geek, but the colour is simply so fitting ^^).
Yeah and strictly speaking it’s not completely finished: The buttons are missing. I was thinking about buying some here but at home we have four or five boxes with buttons and I’m not in that much hurry to finish it.

More pictures (in slightly better quality) behind the cut (more…)

Long Time No See

First my laptop was broken. And then I was just too lazy to post…

So let’s start with a FO I finally finished over Easter:

Yes it’s a TARDIS…and yes I’m addicted to Doctor Who. I started that over a year ago, even before I went on my ERASMUS-year to Northern Ireland. I thzen took the WIP with me, when I went there, and continued to work on it. Then I ran out of yarn (for some reason I could knit the firstb two side-panels with one skein but only 1 1/2 with the second…). Obviously I couldn’t get the same yarn I had bought in Germany over in NI. So it wandered in the UFO-pile and I intended to take it back to Germany when I flew home for Christmas, buy the yarn there and finally finnish it.
I flew home, bought the yarn and realised that I had forgotten the parts back in Belfast…so instead I took the yarn over when I flew back, finnished it, took the parts back again when I came home for Easter and finally finished it completely there.
Yeah so this TARDIS has already got lots of air-miles.

More stuff with more pictures behind the cut.

WIP: Lacy Cardigan

Long time no see…I’ve been knitting 🙂 OK not all the time. My current project is Kerela, a lacy cardigan. So far I haven’t knitted that much garments so I’m quite exited ;). The Pattern is from Pattons:

The yarn is Pattons: Misty (which is actually exactly the yarn the pattern calls for..it was for sale).

So far I’ve finished the back:

(Yes the lighting in my room isn’t ideal). Currently I’m working on the left front, which I haven’t photographed so far.
It knits quite well. At the beginning it took a while to get used to mohair + lace-pattern but now it works OK. Actually so OK that it’s beginning to get a bit dull and I’m a bit tempted to start something else…

So let’s try it

…if I have enough patience for a knitting-blog.

I’ll start with showing off some FOs I did during my first Ravelympics.

These are Nagini-socks:

The cables are a bit difficult to see but the lighting in my room is simply terrible and makes it impossible to take decent photos…
It was the first time that I tried cabled socks (after I already made a cabled bag and countless socks) and will propably also be the last time for a long while. Cabling socks is simply terribly wearisome work (yeah it propably also didn’t help that my cable-needle was quite long).
But anyway: I finished them and got a medall for it 😉
