First: Thank you all for your kind words re. our family. I met my sister last weekend and that was great. We watched the Eurovision song contest and drank a lot of vodka. IF only the scientists would believe me, if I tell them that there must be a kind of idiosyncrasy for cancer in general in our family...
Buuut there's some cool stuff happening around here! I had planned to post about that last week but had to postpone that.
First, the coooooolest thing EVAR
That's the dedication-part of this great book:
Written by my friend Annika. She's really talented and the book is great. It makes me want to start Macramé and I grew up in the 70s and 80s and have not so fond memories of owls and fruit baskets but forget all you know about the theme and have a look at the awesome things Annika makes!
And of course I had to cry when Annika send me a picture of the dedications. I'm so touched!
The best birthday gift from the best husband arrived last week. Can you guess what it is?
o.k. next hint:
O.k. now you got it right? Yes, it's a very cool new ballwinder.
It's a total sturdy piece of handywork, handmade from a small vendor here in Germany. Pricey yes, but totally worth it. The producer is Wollwolff
The yarn I wound for the picture is the yarn, I got at the fleamarket. Handdyed by yours truly of course and I'm thinking of making a vest pour moi.
Last thing: a teaser. This is a gift I'm knitting at the moment :) not telling more...
Parting shot (thus the last picture isn't really "the last")
Greebo with the fabric for my latest project: the Sophia Carry-All bag by Amy Butler. I finished interfacing all the pieces and hope to remember to take pictures on the way, this is the first
