Currently on the needles.... first Inspira Cowl. I call it my first one, because i think these cowls look really nice and are a great way to play with colours and to learn stranded knitting. I´m absolutly NOT good in it but I´d like to improve it a bit.

I´ve learned the "Baltic Braid" with this cowl. It turned out ok I think. next time I´ll make it better :) It is not so hard to learn as it looks at the first sight.

So from time to time I´m knitting some stitches here and so it will be finish when the cold time comes again. I´m sure it will. Someday.

The pattern is really great and an amazing ebook with wonderful artwork from the generous and very talented "Celery Stalks".

The other "new" project is a cardigan (or vest) again. It is the Cassis vest by thea Colman. I´m knitting it with aran weight colourmart yarn from my stash so I had to do a lot of maths because my gauge is totally of.
So I´m knitting with "my" numbers now and hope to have (one day) a finished garment that fits. I´m still not sure if I want short or long sleeves but it is still time as I´m somewhere on the body now. And this is a long cardigan. So no need to hurry.

But most of my spare time I´m not knitting or crochet these days. I´m reading myself through Hakan Nessers books. At the moment I´m reading the Van Veeteren series. And I´m waiting for the 3rd season of True Blood come out on DVD (in german). So inbetween to refresh it a bit, I´m watching season 2 again. For me True Blood is one of the best series. But don´t watch it if you are under 18 please. Or if you are a bit sensitive.


  1. What a neat cowl pattern, it really looks like a perfect pattern to play with colour.
