It has been ages since I posted (I guess I was aiming for a one-post-per-week thing, but it somehow didn’t work out…I’m not that surprised… 😀 ) But now, we have an update and it’s going to be picture heavy 😉
First up are some stitching updates. I have done further work on Eternal Promise and I love how it turns out. But working on 28ct is really hard. It’s fine during the day when I can work with natural light, but it’s terrible to work on during the evenings. After stitching on this for one or two hours I am exhausted and I lost my mojo for some time. So I decided to put this down after working the first five columns. I will try and pick this up again when the days are getting brighter again (or I have more time to stitch during the day). Here is what I got so far, you can see, the coverage is amazing!
After my decision to put down Eternal Promise I picked up Yule Angel again. I haven’t done so much work on it, just one more column so far, but it stitches up quickly and helps my stitchy bug feel comfortable around here once more 😉 So, here are some violet and dark blue colors for you:
The big plan is to stick with this until page 4 is done and then take out Kreimhild again.
Next up on the agenda are my stash-additions. I have purchased some tons of yarn because I still can’t help knitting socks all the time, but didn’t take a picture so far. Maybe I will do so once I can catch good light.
But I can show you some charts I got.
First I want to announce that Bridget Taverner is going to be retired as of 6th March. You can take a look at her work here . In case you like something, there is a 35% sale these days! 😉
I took a chance to grab “White reindeer family”, which I have been looking at for some time:
The second chart I got is “The Madonna in Sorrow” by Zindy Nielsen. I just love that owl (and her eyes).
Last but not least I have some knitting to show you. As I told before, I am kind of addicted to knitting socks. I spent the last weeks knitting baby socks which are being sent to Bolivia these days (there is a lovely lady who collects socks and other things once a year to sent them over to be given to children in need). Since I am done with that I am working down a list of various people who want some socks. First up is a friend of my who gets a colorful pair of socks:
The yarn is called “Wartende Häuser” and is from the “Hundertwasser”-series by Opal. I love this series, they are inspired by paintings by Friedrich Hundertwasser and are all very colorful. I made the pattern up by myself, it’s a simple slip-stitch pattern but I think it looks nice and makes knitting more interesting.
But now I a off so I will get these socks finished.
Happy craftig =)
