Today I went to Rotterdam for the Stitch'nBitch group there.
Again, like four weeks ago, it was bitterly cold.
This time however we were with
sixteen women !
Can you imagine how much noise
knitting women make ?
(ha, everyone was getting louder and louder
just to hear her neighbour)
Although I had to frog a bit
(because I wasn't paying attention enough and had increased two stitches)
the work on my double knitted scarf
is going smoothly :
nearly there !
The only thing I don't like
about the Noro Kureyon Sock yarn
is that it's spun soooo thin in some places,
I have to break it up and knit some stitches with a double thread,
which leaves me with a lot of loose ends to weave in ...
Never mind that,
the colours are gorgeous !
In the garden the small flowers braved the icy wind
still going strong ..... and also gorgeous colours !
For the felting - exchange this month's subject for me was
I was in the mood for some experimenting.
The pre felt I made was dried a bit and then
stitched into pleats with a woolen thread that would felt too,
and strips of plastic as a resist
(the wool is Rowan tweed, but nót very suited and strong enough for knitting)
After cutting the pleats and removing the resists
there was a lot more felting to do
This is the finished piece
which turned out more or less the right size !
(on its way to the recipient )
Your scarf looks beautiful!BeantwoordenVerwijderen

I love that beautiful blue of your felt piece! It looks like a very clever craft, one I've never tried, maybe one day I'll give it a go if I could produce something near as lovely. :) I really love the colours of your scarf, the breaking of the yarn is worth it to get such fantastic results!xxBeantwoordenVerwijderen
