Cabled Leftover Neck Roll

2017-05-26 14.21.11Ohh what can I knit with all this leftover yarn?

A topic we all know to well…we work on one project and then either we do not have enough yarn or too much. But what can we use that for to nice to just throw away…I think.

I am laughing at times. I have so many gorgeous yarns in my stash that are waiting for YES…

“That Perfect Project”

Believe me, I will find one just give me time.

However I tend to go to my leftover yarns and use them up most of the time.

I just can’t see it sitting around to long …As my mother would say when we chat on skype. Oh Jacqueline   “How many scarfs or shawls do you need?”  LOL never enough winters are cold here in Canada… same as in Switzerland just much longer.  You can belive me  add on one month on each ende of the winter then you have Canada weather easely….

Anyway let’s forget about the weather, back to knitting  I really love to just be creative and work something up as I go.

“A Needle Pulling Thread” Spring 2017

 

 the request was ” What to do with leftover yarns?”   Ah ha I though…!

A Neck roll form I had around the home and so it became my

“Cabled Leftover Neck Roll” 

Pattern can buy purchased her or find the magazine at your newstand. Yarn well guess what, just use some of your leftover stash and make it YOURS… play with as many colours or yarn type as you like and just have fun…

Smiles I am proud to have been in  “A Needle Pulling Thread” magazine for more than one year now. Thanks Carla and John for believing in my talent.

Happy Knitting …..

KnitswissYarns In The Sunshine

File 2016-05-31, 8 08 57 PMSunshine all around….thought it was the perfect day to dye a view skeins of yarn…Only to find out I ordered the fingering weight instead of the sport weight yarn….off to the ordering again as I have a view of my friends looking for the “Sport Weight” not fingering Weight….but as I had the skeins soaking already why not go ahead with giving them a colour….

Since I am already on a roll why not put 4 skeins of Milk Protein Fibres/ Bamboo in the dye bath and 3 skeins of  Silk /Linen to see how they take the dye….Gorgeaous is all I say.

Hope to knit some sample up soon too.

Knitswiss Yarns  “100% Bamboo” collection

Sonnenschein….perfekter Tag zum Färben von Garnen. Nur um herauszufinden, ich bestellte Fingering Weight  anstelle von Sport Weight. Oh je Oh je ..die  Bestellung muss schnell weiter gehen. Doch nun hatte ich die Knäuel schon eingeweicht im Wasser Bad dann soll es auch weiter gehen mit dem Färben.   Wunderschön!

Weiter geht es mit 4 Knäuel von Milch Protine Fasern/ Bambus im Färbebad und 3 Knäuel aus Seide/Leinen.  Nur zu sehen wie die verschieden Mediums die Farbstoffe annehmen werden…WUNDERSCHÕN ist alles was ich sage

Hoffe bald damit einige fertige gestrickte exemplare zu zeigen

Modified this one a bit by the sleeves. Instead of increasing at usual spots I decreased on each side by fornt of sleeves. Really love this modification

 

 

Spaß einfach so los zu stricken und die Verwendung von Garn für diese Jacke sin einfach unergänzlich! Also wirklich nur Spaß habe ich mit dieser Strickjacke…auch Du wirst daran freude finden! Für die einte Jacke hatte ich  Wolle von JoJoland benutzt ja Resten davon aber wie schoen die geworden ist. Leider haben keine Ahnung was für Wolle ich hatte für die Zweite. 

Wenn ihr dies liest bin ich bereits in der Schweiz auf Besuch und ich brauchte einige Geschenke für Leonnie und Elena..lächelt ja ihr Mädels :-) anscheinend gefiel diese Jacke euch zweien so gute. Doch auch ihr seit am wachsen und groesser werden, so braucht man neue Sachen …. Hoffe Ihr zwei habt freude daran.

Perfect to colour some more of the yarns I have undyed at my home.

So gorgeous outside for that it in November the 3rd. Normally we are truly way colder than the 18 degrees we have now. Even had snow as early as October.

Aahhh soooo yummy soft!

Yes also 4 skeins of Soybean a new yarn I am trying out. Really love how it took the colour and how it feels too. I think that would be a great one for the once the can’t knit with wool.

Also coloured 10 skeins of Bamboo to see how it will take the colour. The colours come out rather soft see the light blue and light pink. I believe that would be nice for the coming Spring too

My BFF, yes you will get one of them to knit something gorgeous too!

Soybean yarn have onlly 4 skeins so far to see how it does take the dye and how it will knit up. So far
