Hi again. recently I didn´t really blog very much. I often think "oh I could blog this" BUT...I forget to make pictures and when I´m back at the laptop I´ve long forgotten what I wanted to chat about on the blog. maybe I should start to blog over the cell phone ;)

Recently I found out that I´m able to upload picture from my cell phone directly to facebook. Which I think is really cool. But I don´t do this very often. And I know that most people already know about this feature, but for me who uses the phone mostly as a telephone and sometimes SMS this is something cool and new.

Ok back to the crafty stuff. I´ve started some socks again and frogged some others. The striped Noros had so ugly colour combinations and the heel turned out to be pink. I just don´t loved how they started to look and so i frogged them. Also the little stripy socks for Felix. I think I know know that toe up just isn´t my thing. I prefer from cuff to toe and with DPN and althought people keep telling me that it is easier with circulars I stay with my DPN. I don´t think that knitting with DPN is difficult at all, maybe because I´ve learned it this way and am used to it.

I´ve started some new socks...just because I like to have some unfinished socks around ;) I only knit some stitches here and then while the PC is loading (ok while I play SIMS3 and there something is loading).

Pattern : Kai-Mei by Cookie A.
Yarn: Lana Grossa Meilenweit Holiday Stretch in green
Needles: 2mm Knit Picks harmony DPN

I´ve finished the Astrid scarf this weekend but only have crappy pictures until now.
The knitting was interesting. the bobbles took some time but were easy. the Body of the scarf was a fast and nice knit too. It took me some time because I had other things to do inbetween, but I think this scarf could be done in one weekend. My yarn is a bit heavy so this scarf goes to the gift box. It will be a nice gift next winter I think.

Pattern: Astrid by Joji
Yarn: Drops Garnstudio Nepal (2 skeins light greey/2 skeins jeansblue)
Needles: 5.5mm

I wish you a nice day. Have fun and make something pretty :)


  1. What a lovely shawlette! The edging is super cute!

    I believe there's no best or right way to knit socks. The best way is the one that suits you! I knit mine with circulars, magic loop, and I need to work the 2 socks at the same time (on 2 different needles)I tried the dpns, but it didn't work for me. :)

  2. Really like the scarf, it so fun looking. I haven't been blogging much lately either, it goes up and down for me.

  3. ganz tolle Arbeit.

    Herzliche gruesse Conny
