Something I found

Not earth-shattering news, but pertains to knitting nevertheless.

Like Mmario's designs? Like lace? Want something for free?

Do you all remember this beautiful shawl from Mmario?

Gift anyone?

A couple of months ago, I treated myself on some Sublime cashmere merino silk combo, dk weight for 2 different projects.

Oh Joy! Oh Ecstacy! Oh Rapture! - The Thrill of Monotony

In my 56 years on this planet, I have physically moved my residence, at this count, over 49 times. I suppose that says something - not sure yet if denial will fade on the self-examination process.

My Kirchner nightmare

The shawl that I'm currently working is knit in two pieces and then joined in the center with the Kirchner (I'm never sure how to spell this word) stitch.

My 2nd Pair of Socks!

I finished these up about a week ago. They were originally intended for me, but I got lazy when knitting the foot and made it too short to fit my size 11 foot.

Fun times in Felting

My latest rave: my first moebius. A very good experience.

Fly me to....Neptune!


Neptune (Le Mystique), originally uploaded by elemmaciltur.

Start: 21st June 2009
Finish: 11th July 2009
Needles: 4 mm / 80 cm Addi Turbos
Yarn: Wollmeise "Molly"; 100% superwash Merino; colourway "Neptun"
Pattern: Joukahainen by Kristel Nyberg. Published in Finnish in the magazine Ulla 03/07. Pattern is available as an English translation as Ravelry download.
Name: The name comes from the last movement of the orchestral suite The Planets by Gustav Holst.
Modifications: Added 5 rounds of stockinette after having joined all the pieces together to give the arms some more room. Added k2 between the raglan decreases to avoid the gaping holes. Did some improvisational neck-shaping with short rows. Worked out pretty well.
