Knitting my way through Prague. If you're ever here, make sure not to miss these beautiful gardens just off . It's the perfect peaceful stop to have a bit of a knit and to let the kids run around and recharge after so much walking!
Good morning! Today is a I-need-a-coffee-in-the-morning day... we had a photoshoot scheduled for today, but it's cold, rainy and grey outside. Even the best of background management doesn't cut it today... so there's more time to knit!!! Time to take up the #MindfulShawl again and to restart our #mindfulkal -- how far is yours, @marigoldsloft and @kimbeth66 ? #siidegarte #handdyed #yarn #indiedyer #switzerland #knitting_inspiration #knitting #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram
Well, it does happen to you as well, doesn't it? Last minute blocking... for tomorrows craft show. So happy to have my girls helping me, it's the first shawl they're blocking!! It's @rosa_traume Mindful Shawl by @trulymyrtlephotos - I didn't manage to finish mine in time, so she's been lending it to me -- thank you so much!! #siidegarte #yarn #handdyed #indiedyer #siideliind #switzerland #mindfulkal #mindfulshawl
Did it!! Wow, I didn't think it possible when I had to rip the body the day before yesterday .. but here it is! It's a very easy and obviously quick knit, and I do need a name for it now --- any suggestions welcome, Swiss German, German, English or whatever ... #getitdonebyFriday --> yes!!! #siidegarte #yarn #handdyed #indiedyer #switzerland #siidefideel
To be honest, I didn't think I would make it this far this quick. Shows what some Netflix binge watching can do. Now to crown shaping, my goal is to finish today, attach the pompon, take a few pictures and have it ready on display for tomorrow.
So no, this didn't work out. The pattern just didn't show nicely enough. The only way really to go was to rip it and start from new. the goal is still to Keep your fingers crossed!
#MarchMeetTheMaker Day 21: Workclothes... cheating a bit, I admit. But as I'm mostly working from home, these are really not spectacular, jeans and T-Shirt mostely. And some knitting in my lap. Gabys workcloth would have been more interesting though, old shirt full of colourful splashes... will habe to post a picture of her soon... #marchmeetthemakerday21 #siidegarte #yarn #handdyed #indiedyer #switzerland
Hope you had a beautiful morning as well! .. the weather is stunning, the sun is shining, and although it's cold still early on, it looks so much like spring already! I've had a bit of time to go on knitting my #MindfulShawl, it it looks a lot better now that I've gone down a needle size -- now I love it! I've finished the first repeat of the body shawl, to more to go, and I've started to get really into the pattern. Soon, looking at the chart will not be necessary anymore... ! How are you…
