Knitted Flap Cap for my Father - Cologne, April 2014

My table is a battlefield, but I think it was worth it. 
I used this wonderful pattern: Mikey-Cap and well, for every difficulty I had was only my lack of thinking ahead to blame.
I just hope he’ll like it and that it’ll fit.

Blooming for the first time - Cologne, April 2014

I’ve had this little cactus for approx. 4 years and this is the first spring it decided to bloom. It’s so pretty. ^.^

Babykamelschal - April 2014

I finished my scarf made out of babycamelwool. It’s extremely cozy, light and wonderful. Oh, I wish I could make myself really tiny so that this could be my bed. <3
For this scarf I used eliZZZa’s "Patentmuster mit Ajourstreifen" pattern. As usual, her video is well-explained and easily understood.

Plushy Gandalf stealing my Herbstschal - 02.04.2014

Hrrumpf.. I just barely finished my autumn scarf and left the room for a few minutes and immediately plushy Gandalf tried to steal it…
Unfortunately, I can’t stay mad at him, he’s just too cute and handsome. My female heart knows no defense against his fluffy beard.

I used eliZZa’s wonderful “Donut Rippen” pattern for this scarf. [LINK]

(Oh, and plushy Gandalf was a Christmas present from my younger, but not youngest, brother)

Herbstwolle - 27.03.2014 - Cologne

My oh, so beautiful, new, autumn-leaves-colored yarn that I love very much. 
Sadly though, I have no idea what to knit with it. Every pattern I start turns out to be not quite good enough. Never in my life have I been that indecisive.

Creativa 2014 - 20.03.2014 in Dortmund, DE

The exhibition was so much fun!
Fo and I tried ourselves at spinning yarn and bobbin lace-making - both absolutely fantastic crafts btw. I could waste whole lifetimes on any of them without the barest hint of regret. And all the craftspeople there were really helpful and inspiring, we learned a lot in such short time.
Afterwards, there was money to be spent. Oh, the yarn and wool and other treasures!
I’m broke now. So very, very broke. xD;
Still worth it though.

Lavendel - 21. März 2014

I bought some Lavender at the Creativa exhibition yesterday. <3
And appropriately to my profession I used unsterilized compresses to make little Lavender bags for my closet.

Driving Gloves - 16.03.2014

The pattern is one of Lion Brand’s Free Crochet Patterns.
These were lots of fun to make. :D 
I used Lana Grossa’s Bingo 076 (leftovers from my Ravenclaw scarf) and bought the buttons at the ren faire in Rhauderfehn last year. 

Light and Up Shawl - 14.03.2014

I am so in love with this thing. <3 
The pattern is by Caroline Wiens and you can find it on Ravelry: Click Me 
She explains every step very clearly, so that knitting this shawl is really fun. ^.^

I used Lana Grossa’s Merino Air 011 for this. The yarn is red with a subtle black undertone and so, so soft. It feels absolutely great on the skin. 

A visit from Japan - 13.03.2014

My bff was in Japan over New Year and he brought home a souvenir for me.
Beware the Giant Squid! Monster from the deep sea!
