Knitting sets your mind free and makes you see the other side of whatever this will be.....the purlside or the happier side of life!

I really like this one! Every time I come up with a new pattern I am excited! But this time I am extremely fond of myself. This project started out as a head warmer but I actually think it looks even better as a short necktie or scarf! It doesn't take long to knit and I almost have to stop myself from making one every night. Possibilities are endless. I love yarn. 

I also had to crochet one. Like that one, too.
This one actually started the whole head warmer craziness! 
I guess I will make more. 
You can find all of my patterns on the most wonderful website for knitters and crocheters.

Finally! The New Knitter's Magazine K100 is here!!

Okay, I have been talking about this one for a while....and now the cowl neck flips up on the picture...well, can't have it all! It is a nice sweater and it would also make a great sweater in just one solid color. Black. Always a good choice.
To top things off you can download the whole magazine for free here:

Which means the whole issue! And it is a big one!
Have fun!

I have been busy getting my website ready. I did it all by myself and for being more a knitter than a computer specialist I am quite proud of the result. So of course some of my knitting got a bit on the back burner. But only a bit! I still knit every day for at least an hour.

A really cute cardigan is this one:
It is not easy to take pictures of this one. That's why I also called this design "Glass". I have not published the pattern yet but you can contact me and then we will work something out. And: Rowan's Kidsilk Haze is the yarn for this sweet nothing.

Another fun project with Christmas coming up:
I designed this one for a stocking class I am teaching at my local yarn store IRIS
The fun part about it: fast! Bulky weight yarn and knitted in the round! You could learn something new as well! How about some duplicate stitch and an hour glass heel? You could add the two-color knitting but this would be up to you. All I can say is that I have the feeling my students love it! 
The pattern is available for download for $6.00 Christmas Stocking

And then one more thing: these booties are so cute and special if you like to crochet:
You can download this pattern for $ 7.50 right here Principessa Pattern
