Knitting and Knitting

Dear Friends, the days seem to be zooming by as we've been busy with all kinds of things. We went to the circus to see Cirque du Soleil's Quidam, which was magical! We spent time with friends, in the garden, cooking and working. In all of that, I always come back to my knitting to keep me calm and centered.
Although I have to admit that knitting with this lacy ruffle yarn was not so relaxing. I really had to pay attention, but the resulting scarves are beautiful - soft, ruffly and elegant with a silver sparkle. They have made their way into my Etsy shop here

Remember the swirly hat from my last post? I decided it needed a shawl to go with it. It's the Rosy Glen Shawl pattern (I made it a little larger than in the pattern), which you can find for free on the Lion Brand Website.
And as always when I knit, Ramses is close by. Over the years he's learned that he cannot sit on my yarn or on whatever it is I am knitting, nor can he play with the yarn, but he still loves being close and snuggling in.
The sun has come out again and we are experiencing a perfect spring. It's warm, but not too warm and the humidity hasn't set in yet. We are loving it!

I hope the sun is shining wherever you are!!



  1. Liebe Silke,

    mit dir freue ich mich über deine gelungenen Werke.

    Alles Liebe

  2. Oh Silke, they are so beautiful. I especially love the blue. So the yarn itself is ruffled? WOW. Such a sweet kitty.

    **happy smiles**

  3. Huhu liebe Silke,

    du warst sehr fleißig. Sehr schöne Sachen hast du gezaubert.

    Ich habe meinen "alten" Blog aufgelöst und bin jetzt hier zu finden:

    Wieso, welhalb, warum, das kannst du im alten Blog nachlesen.

    Manchmal muss man neue Wege gehen.

    LG Sabine

  6. Thank you all for your sweet comments!! I had fun knitting these and they all knit up fairly quickly. Deb, the yarn itself isn't ruffled, but the way you knit it makes it so. It's an odd way to knit and I'm not sure I'll do it again...

    xoxo Silke
