To tide over until I am able to make nice pictures of what I am up to knitting nowadays (the sun is hiding today and on weekdays I mostly get home when it’s already getting dark, it is just that time of year, and I think I need SUNLIGHT for nice pictures, even though I tend to avoid it in any other situation 😉 …)
(you can find the really nice basic pattern here, but it is in German. If there is any demand, I’ll see if I can translate it next week)
I twirked the pattern a bit by making a spiral pattern for the skirt part and not knitting in rib for the whole upper body part (only over the shoulders).
- double pointed needles for knitting in the round (2.5 mm)
- small remainder of “Sockenwolle” (I think that is “fingering weight yarn” in English; the yarn mostly used for knitting socks); the colourful pattern comes directly from the yarn.
Another thing, should I begin adding German translation? Or are we all “international” enough for English only blog posts? 😉
(and no, my army of dolls no longer occupies parts of the book shelves. They have their own shelves now 😉 )
