Vienna

We had a photo shoot in Vienna when I was there last time. May I introduce my beautiful daughter? It was fun trying to find locations for staging the knits.

Here is a selection:

Lollipop Cowl - a knitting pattern for fingering weight yarn

This is the Lollipop Cowl

The Poppy Scarf got a new picture as well: 

Flower lace scarf knitting pattern - "Poppy Scarf"

 I love this one of the Garter Cloud pattern:

Shawl knitting pattern

All of these are older patterns. 
My daughter loved this one so much that I had to write a pattern for the socks. They are called the Vienna Socks. Just released today.

Noli me tangere

I meant to write about this for quite some time. Alas, I lost my words. 
The Damian shawl pattern was released last month already.  There has been a huge response - thank you to all of you who left comments on the pattern page, sent me messages or emails. I hope I replied to everybody. 
You will also find the story behind there, and if you read on, you will find a coupon code to get the pattern for free. May it bring you peaceful hours.

Fall is here

And with it came the rain. 

A rainy day in early fall

Goldenrod

Solidago neophyte


They suddenly seem to be everywhere. Pretty, but not native. I did not know them until a few years ago.

Dishcloths etc

Sometimes I enjoy knitting dishcloths. They are fun little projects with lots of possibilities to try out stitch patterns, and the result is definitely useful. You can wash them and reuse them. 
I think the main reason why they aren't more popular is that ambitious knitters consider them beneath their dignity. Dishcloths! Who knits dishcloths when there are intricate lace shawls and sweaters and lots of other stuff which will massage your ego and make others admire you for your skills. Well, I do. I confess.

My Stripes

My new hat pattern is called My Stripes. How shall I put it - I really love this one. It was so much fun to knit!
