Your Majesty Scarf 2018
A New Scarf for Christmas I made a new scarf from the leftover yarn. Apparently I had a lot, and it turned out to be very long - which is great! The yarn I used was: DK Merino Blend -Pure New Wool by KING COLE LTD., UK and SANDES GARN 100% Alpakka, Norway.
Feels like Felt I had three shades of green and a wonderful 'felt-like yarn" to insert in between the green stripes
Merry Christmas and Happy Knitting!!
Decembre bianco 2017
Winter is here Winter arrived early this year, and the scarf I made for Anna's birthday came in handy right away. We had the first snow at Harbourfront on December 12th. It covered our beautiful roof garden, and everything got gorgeously bianco :-) The reason I am using some Italian words here is that the yarn for this scarf was bought in Italy during our trip to Venice with Anna.
Ivory Yarn The yarn I used for this scarf has a beautiful off-white, ivory colour. It is amazingly soft.
Lellabella This yarn is Soft Cashmere made exclusively for the Venice yarn shop Lellabella.
This yarn is exquisite. It's 100% Cashmere. I used one skein - 50g - 700m
Lace Stitch The pattern for the scarf is one of the the most simple lace patterns - the Horseshoe knitting stitch.
Bella Scarf The scarf is beautiful, very warm and cozy. Bellissimo!
Have a beautiful winter!
M-mm-erry Christmas, dears! 2016
Christmas Hat 2015
Felt and Yarn Garland The starting point was the 'garland'- with its colorful felt pieces on hand-dyed yarn. I knitted a square and applied the 'garland'. Doesn't it look like a tree? :-)
Too tight? Too warm? Amelia's 'always' reaction to my knitted hats is to take them off :-)
Thanks, but no thanks Thank you, but No, thank you :-)... Just not her thing...

Knit. Knit. Meaou. What can better keep a kitten busy than a ball of yarn? "Cats find a ball of yarn irresistible. It’s a ball! It’s yarn! When the human starts playing with the yarn our cat’s heart warms up like cooked toffee. Let’s do this together!" ("Cats and Knitting" Blog, google this blog to read more)
Holiday Season 2011
Arts and Crafts Show The show took place at Harbourfront, in the building next door. There were many exhibitors - painters, writers, photographers, jewelry makers, and ... a knitter. My sister and my mom helped me out with putting everything together. We made this terrific display and enjoyed every minute of it.
