What's on my needles right now?

Back in March, I had the following projects on my needles: a Christel Seyfarth sweater, the zick zack scarf, the offbeat hat and mitts and the latest marled shawl of Stephen West.

We have now moved into summer, so I am enjoying the lovely hot evenings outside on my terrace with a glass of wine and some knitting.

I am glad to say that two of above projects are finished, the zick zack scarf and the offbeat seat - both already gifted to great friends.

I am still working on my large project of a sweater by Christel Seyfarth - it's put a bit on hold in the summer months, as it is real hot wool to work with.
I am still working on the marled shawl from the Ravelry KAL by Stephen West - enjoying this enormously, especially since it uses up a lot of my scrap yarn.

But the shawl/wrap which has taken over these summer months is one designed by Joji Locatelli. I am nearly there, getting to the middle triangle and then a lovely shawl will be ready for cooler days.

I am about to start a nice summer top designed by Marianne Isager. I will knit it in silk and linen as to keep it a cool top! I found some lovely blue tones for it.

And finally, I am also knitting a small birthday gift for my aunt with a new technique. I risk her checking my blog here, so you will have to wait and see what all that is about later on. In any case, here you have my summer sun chair full of lovely projects.


MY Colourful scarf

As many other knitters, I have 4-5 different projects going at the same time. These days, when I get bored with some of the more mono-coloured sweaters or scarfs which I am knitting, I reward myself with a multi-coloured scarf, where I use all the rainbow's colours in a fair-isle knit.
It has hundreds of colours so not one that is easily finished, but it is great fun to work on it.

Here you have a layout of the many colours that I used in one section of the scarf - using so many colours does mean lots and lots and lots of ends to sew in.

Here you have a snapshot of the very beginning of the scarf.

The best reason for a knitter to marry is that you can’t teach the cat to be impressed when you finish a lace scarf.

During 2016, I managed to finalise a few knitted things. Here are some examples:

Here are a few examples of my knitting projects in 2015.
