Round and round


yesterday was a pretty nice day here in Northern Germany. Our summer was kind or rainy so far, so having a pretty nice day (mostly sunny, warm, some clouds) was a nice change. I took the opportunity to take some pictures of my current projects. Due to the light outside they are kind of overexposed but these will have to do.

Project No.1

Rivendellsocks by Janel Laidman
Yarn: Wollmeise 100% superwash in "Rittersporn"

The yarn is a tad darker than the pictures show. After turning the heel, the pattern is a pretty mindless rib, so it's round after round after round until you hit the point where you have to start the toe.

I might need the Lothlorien sock pattern too :)

Project No. 2
The Sarah blanket :)
It's for a friend, who will have a baby in autumn
Pattern: OpArt from Knitty
Yarn: Bernats Cottentots provided by Sarah (who in reality is not insane but really generous and I didn't mean insane in a bad way!)

Since I'm knitting this pattern in stockinette, it's just round after round with 2 increases every round, so each round is getting bigger and bigger ang bigger :) Perfect for the bus at the moment, not too big so far but I had to order needle tips since I did not own 4.5 mm needle tips ;) and one of my circs in that size is so stiff, that knitting with 2 circs wasn't fun.

As you can see, my cat Greebo shares my passion for yarn :) Although he esp. loves handdyed skeins of sock yarn.

Parting shot:

This one is for Maria. My new roses

1. Rouge Meilove (that is the name)

2. A miniature rose, that didn't have a name tag

LOVE the blanket! ^-^
I'm curious how long it will take you to finish it - then I'll double the amount of time and see who's next "due" with a baby and knit one too! ;)

Love it all - and the red rose esp. - might be the one for my wall...

Your Rivendell sock looks beautiful, I love that color!! I loved knitting them, too, what a lovely pattern, eh?!
