Unbelievable! I looked into a drawer and there was a whole new set of red yarn. Now I can finish the little sock. YEAH.
The bolero is also almost finished

With a good start, you're halfway there. Eventhough yesterday I had to pull out half my work, because one block was not as big as the others.... This morning I had enough time to catch up.

The whole afternoon and evening was filled with knitting. I bought some new cotton/acryl in white and light blue. All kind of patterns passed and failed. Different sizes of needles weren't satisfying either. I started over 5 times, but time's up. Maybe tomorrow.

Ik ben dus maar overnieuw begonnen met de weddingring sjaal van Eunny Jang. De 'Print O' The Wave" is eigenlijk bedoelt om met cobweb draad te maken. Maar de vorige keer ging het zo mis na 5 blokken, dat ik het niet uit kon halen.
Nu dus weer een flinke maat, en gewoon witte katoen en pen 5. Na 2 avondjes zijn 2 blokken af. Katoen breit heel duidelijk, weinig ruimte voor fouten. En makkelijk uit te halen als het wel zo is.
I had to start again with the weddingring shawl of Eunny Jang. The "Print O' The Wave" shawl is meant to be made with cobweb yarn. But because I messed up the last time, I couldn't pull out the yarn properly. So now I make an extra large, and plain white cotton. Needle 5. After 2 nights of knitting I finished 2 blocks already. Cotton has no mercy, no room for any faults. And when I DO mess up, I can pull the thread and start again...

There's yarn found, and three quarters of sock 2 is finished. Now I'm desperate, maybe I have to 'violate' an other knitted thing, to make the sock completely. I could buy some more, but they'll probably won't match. Not bad, but not so beautiful either.

De boord is gedraaid recht/averecht. Ik steek de rechte steek aan de achterkant in. Door het patroon van Storm op Zolder uit Handwerken zonder Grenzen (sokken) te breien is gebleken dat het er niet alleen heel mooi uit ziet, maar ook heel rekbaar is.
Hi, I've been experimenting. On the site of Saartje were such beautiful kneesocks. They've got a nice heel, and I wanted to have a go at it. Straight from the foto, no pattern available.
The top of the sock is with a twisted st/purl. I stick my needle in on the back of the right loop (?). Because I knitted the Pattern of Yvon/Storm in the Attick of Handwerken zonder Grenzen, it appeared to be very neat and stretchy.

I've been so lazy, I didn't do a thing the last days. A lot of drawing to do for my work, and because I enjoy it so much, time flew. And as a bonus made a little money.
The store in Leeuwarden was closed, so I couldn't buy any yarn today. Maybe next time. Or tomorrow in our local shop.

Sooooo, it looks nice, doesn't it? All week has been unexpectably busy, no knitting was done at all. I totally knitted the prescribed pattern, but the sleeve-opening is looking a little bit to big in my opinion. Without sleeves is to cold for my little girl. So.... back to work.

Morgen foto's, bij daglicht.
I started yesterday and knitted the day away, with the asignment for February for Angsoka. I believe there has to be made a bolero. I began with dark green, the theme has to be Dreams and Nightmares. I'll think of something cosy. It's for my daughter, but it hasn't worked out yet. I promise to use the pattern, but...
Tomorrow some pictures in broad daylight.
