a rose ... and a beginning

Since it's almost the end of the month
I had to make haste to finish 
the little felting-exchange piece.

Ha, just like last month
I made a serious mistake 
so I had to do it all over again
(that's learning ... is it ?)

I had to make something with flowers or leaves
and it just jumped into my mind :

a rose
is a rose
is a rose

(the first ánd second attempt)

Almost dry and waiting for a few stitches ...
it's on its way now to J.


Last Stitch'nBitch-Saturday I went to Rotterdam,
but if the weather had been as bad as it would turn out later
I probably would have stayed at home !!!
Snow and an icy wind :
not so nice when you're on your bike ! 
We were five, who defied the bad weather ...
and ofcourse it was fun 
as I showed my trumpet flowers of Loani Prior

I got an e-mail of the "Queen" 
about the pattern of her double-knitted scarf !
Though it took me quite some time looking at You-Tube 
to manage the double-knit
I started a gauge swatch today

(with two skeins of Noro Kureyon Sock 
that were patiently waiting in my stash)

with the result 
a "positive" and "negative" side

yeeeeaaaah !

Thanks Loani !

  4. You are so clever to knit double knitting. I would love to do it, but I can't without any help from someone! Looking forward to see it finished - Hugs Nat

  5. What a beautiful rose! I have done both wet and dry felting and could not sustain my passion for it so it went by the wayside. I do, however still love working with felt/felted wool, and for applique it beats fabric, I am daring to say!! Lx

  6. and WHAT a rose! warm greetings from Paris!
