Knit, knitting, knits, knitted ...

As I started knitting classes last September I've got totally addicted to it!
My tiny crochetneedle is having a deep wintersleep.

Here are some of the projects I have been making the last months. 

Started with my first Lopapeysa!
Took a virtual knitting class at Craftsy from the famous Raga Eiriksdottir.

Totally happy with the result I started a second one.

Why not try a pair of socks? 


With the description found on this blog I was able to knit my first pair.

Bought beautiful yarn at Sock made by hand for the 2nd and 3rd pair ...
... growing a small addiction into sockknitting.

Minou is still very helpful taking care of my yarn.

On Sunday (once a month) I am joing the knitting club at Vrijstaat-O.

In December I took my crochet needle (size 4.5 instead of 0.75) again and started crocheting some christmaspresents using the starstitch.

My son asked me to knit him a fishermanssweater from the book: Visserstruien by Stella Ruhe. 
The pattern used for this one was URK 2.

Some new yarns from Bart&Francis are waiting to be transformed into something nice!

Long time no read!

It has been rather quiet on my blog lately.  Less time to blog or read blogs. Working much more with my iPhone or iPad instead of with a normal PC makes writing of blogpost less efficient.  On the other hand, making pics with the phone and posting them on Facebook or Instagram is very, very easy and quick. Lazy me! 
Still crocheting, as you can see.  These are my newest designs made with Guttermann yarn, takes about 10 hours to crochet one.  They are all OOAK.

Took up an old passion again: knitting! Following one year of evening class for advanced knitting.  Love it!
