Never enough ;)

As you all said, a woman can have never enough shawls. So I am just knitting on ;-)
I finished Ruffled Feathers this week. It is now washed and blocking, so more pictures next week. But ahead of those here are some pictures of the unblocked shawl.
There is another one I didn't show. It's was a gift for a friend, so I couldn't show before. here is Långstrump.
To compensate all the  knitting I did some blue stitching. My borders from Randje per Week are almost up to date. I am a week behind, but I'll catch up during my vacation that starts end of the week. Yeah!!

How many shawls can a woman wear?

The answer is of course, only one at the time (or two perhaps, maybe even three). But the fun is't only about wearing, the fun is also about knitting them. so I knit me another one.... and another ... and another ...

I made some progress on No woman No Cry. Round 119 is done now. Unfortunately I can't show a recent picture, because it is too big to show. All stitches are wrapped on the needles and no pattern can be seen.

I am also doing well on Ruffled Feathers. A green no brainer (Melissa will have fun reading this). almost half way done now.

The Stroll That Stole My Heart is doing great. I've done two reports now and I will try to add a picture by Monday (edited: done!).
My latest finish is Green Hearts, a testknit. A really quick one!

It's been a while ...

Almost two weeks since I posted! I have been knitting though, ans I have a finish again. In fact I have two finishes, but one of them I can't show, because it is going to be a gift to a friend.
I started and finished a lovely shawl again. Red Death Ball. Look and judge for yourself ;)
I also startes some new ones. A ruffled shawl, a bit of a no brainer and a shawl with cables and lace motifs. Picetures next week.
This week I have been quilting again on my bed quilt. And for this I also promise to show some pictures next week.
Nothing else for now. Take care!

Getting used to work

As always after a (long) vacation I need some time to get used to work again. I think I am a pretty average woman LOL
So I took some time to knit and stitch after work and forgot to post a new blogpost.
That leaves me with a pair of finished socks.
Blue Socks Again.
My borders are reaching a length that doesn't fit on a picture. So I decided to make a little video to show all borders. I am not sure if I can put the video here, but I'll give it a try.

Summer is over, finished projects!

Tomorrow I start working again, summer vacation is over. The weather is adjusting to me, it seems. This week we had lots of rain and much less sun than we used to have since my vacation started. Oh well, that makes saying goodbye to lazy days a little easier ;)
I was able to realize a lot of plans this summer. My first NY quilt is finished! And so are a pair of socks and two shawls.
We also went away for a trip to Germany, I'll show some pictures at the end of this blogpost.
But first pictures of the finished quilt. This one is for youngest DD.
NY quilt number two had to wait a little bit, I think I'll pay attention to my bedquilt first.

Some socks and shawls were finished. Here are my blue socks. They caused some trouble, but I won!

And here is Anybody Out There? It was a fun knit, lots of nupps and lace knitting. A bit of a challenge, but not a too big challenge.

Today I finished My Pride and Joy. The original pattern is named Miss Elliot, by Paulina Popiolek. I love to knit a border like this and I started it on the first day of our trip to Rossbach, Germany.

So far my knitting and sewing. Our trip to Germany was lovely! We had sun, sun, sun and time to relax. The house we stayed in is a dream!
Here are some pictures. We went to some small towns in the neighborhood (Freudenberg, Abtei Marienstadt) and to some bigger cities (Koblenz, Köln and Bonn).
