I’ve just finished the most soft and scrumptious scarf, I think I have knitted so far. And, atypically for me, it is almost monochrome in bluish colours (most of my scarfs are very bright coloured).

The pattern is Brambling Shawl and the softest yarn is Fyberspates Cumulus.

Beginners’ Projects

I have started a new Knitting Circle and I hope that also novices into knitting will be joining us, so we can teach a few more to knit. In this connection, I thought of two good starter projects. Simply knit in garter stitch (all knit stitch) a rectangle, sew it together and voila, we have finger-less mitts.
I knit another square starting in garter stitch from the top and then at the bottom (wrist) introducing the purl stitch so make a cuff. Both are very effect-full, are great starter projects and can be used a nice small gifts for Christmas!

It is now more than two years ago, I started to knit a square a month inspired by a monthly blog from the pages you are reading right now. 

After year two, I had 28 squares in total; they picture two years in knits. One more year and a bit, I think that I have a nice history book covering a few years of my traveling life.

This weekend’s forecast is mostly knitting, with a chance of wine.

The past three years in knit

In 2017 I managed to finish off some projects, although I always seem to have something waiting in the queue. Here you have some of the gifts made last year, now with happy new owners:

OK. A few scarfs I kept for myself!

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.
