This post has been written in my head for 20times or more. Somehow time is limited with the twins and/or I'm just too tired or not in the mood to resize my pictures.... you get the picture.
But the twins are napping at the same time (wonder!!!!) and I thought, I use the time. So I have tons to tell/show you.
First up a christmas gift, that I made (twice)
The pattern is the Margaret Sling bag, which is unfortunately no longer available for free (I'm just happy, that I downloaded it before it retired)
The fabric is from IKEA. Stupid me cut out one of the sections in the wrong direction and I had to go back to IKEA 3 days before christmas..... argh...
(I know, that the picture is crappy but I needed to take a quick picture before mailing it off...
If you have the pattern: give it a shot. It's a great bag!
Spinning meeting. I was able to attend a spinning meeting in January. Having a day off and watching so many skilled spinners was a real treat for me. (Since I don't have permission to show faces, you just get a very cropped picture)
I'm working on a long term project. I'm a fairly unexperienced spinner and spinning for a garment is a first for me. I hope, that this will become enough yarn for a vine yoke cardigan one day. There are over 500gr of roving for me to spin up (might be a kilo, I need to check the recipt I got....) So far I filled 3 bobbins and I can't see that the huge amount of roving got less.... It ball reminds me of an add for Swiffer....
Knittingwise I finished a gift for a friend. By now I guess she has received it, so it's safe to show a picture. M. just would not lay still for the picture :) The twins are getting more mobile every day...
Pattern: Baby yours by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
The pattern is awesome. I'm working on a second cardigan right now, but converting it to having fewer seams, since I'm short on yarn (Superlana by Lana Grossa. So far nice to work with...)
And last not least: My recipe challenge. So far I have made 4 new recipes. The latest beeing rhubarb-marzipan muffins and "Kirschmichel". I have a picture of the Kirschmichel on my phone, I just need to download that, so until then you'll have to be happy with pictures of the muffins and the carrot-ginger-coconut soup
Time for the girls to get up :)
