iPhone cover, the sleeping bag

A sleeping bag for my cell phone.

Wedding Bolero, the end

It is finished!

The pattern chart contains an error. The Clematis edging is not symmetric. It took 18 pattern repeats before I noticed, so I choose to move on. Its appearance is OK, but not perfect...

Niebling Lyra

Another ongoing project. This one I started this summer but did not get very far. It was... rather boring. You can not see the pattern knitting on a 60cm circular, and it is just every other row that is patterned. Seems like I got used to "worse". The yarn is a cone of 2/28 nm cashmere bought from Colourmart.com. Note the bespoke stitch markers with silver wire and beads. Useful when knitting in the round! And, I just love my Addi Lace circulars.

Princess shawl

Princess shawl edging. Zegna Baruffa 70% merino, 20% silk 10% cashmere 2/28nm in colour Sugar Pink from Colourmart. I love the yarn. This pattern does not correspond 100% to the pictured shawl. I have asked Sharon about it but she did not answer that particular question...

Wide bordered shawl

Wide bordered shawl
I modified the pattern of the Wide Bordered Shawl from Sharon Millers Heirloom knitting. It took four months to complete because its side length is more than 1.5m (that's 2.4 square metres!). Lovely soft Shetland tradition. The yarn is 2/28nm 100% merino wool bought from Stäkets Hantverk.
