Glamorous Scarf

Posted by Annie Altherr at 07:03 0 comments
I asked my Mum what colour scarf she wanted and she told me she hasn't got one that would go with any colour.
Now i don't do just plain. This yarn with sequins called Aria by James C Brett was ideal for a scarf which will match with anything.


I just need to wrap it up and send it off.

Scarf made from King Cole Riot DK Yarn.

Beautiful yarn and so comfortable to knit with.
Comes in all kinds of colour combinations.

Certainly a yarn i will chose again for a larger project.
I have already spotted a pattern i am tempted with.


Anyway my fiance is delighted with his new scarf!

Lace Shawl Pattern

Posted by Annie Altherr at 02:30 0 comments
My latest project I am working on is a this lace shawl.

I use Schoppel's Lace Ball for it. 100g seems to be enough for a nice sized shawl.
If you are working with the thicker Schoppel,s Zauberball Lace you will need 200g 



Half circle Lace Stole Instructions:

Size: 120cm Radius

Material: Schoppel Zauberball Lace (800m/100g) approx. 200g needed
(If you chose to knit with 1 Schoppel Lace Ball the radius will be approx 80cm)
circular knitting needle 4mm
crochet hook 3mm

Lace Pattern: Right side knit as in pattern, wrong side apart from the first and last 2 stitches knit in purl.

How to double up stitches:
knit 1 stitch and 1 twisted stitch out of 1 stitch

two yarn over in the pattern are knitted on the wrong side as followed:
1 knit and 1 purl into the same yarn over stitch

Annie's Knitting Studio

Hello to all the Knitters out there!

I thought long and hard about it but then I decided why not start a blog about knitting.
I haven't been knitting for quite a while because after an accident I lost the strength in my left hand and I was in severe pain after each attempt of taking up knitting again.

But 20 years on my hand feels fine and I am in no pain whatsoever. I missed knitting badly. I turned to graphic art and later to 3D art just to keep me occupied. But there is a lot of waiting time while a picture is rendered and what best to do if not knitting while waiting.

So i went out to get me to the tools i needed and hey I am back.

I will use this blog to show the projects I am working up to their finished state.
I will give away pattern i have created myself.
I will post translations of pattern which are not available in English.
I will post links to free pattern and to stores selling yarn.
I will post tips and trick and help people if they go stuck with a project.

Knitting is a wonderful hobby and craft. Nothing is better than snuggle up in a warm jumper in front of a fire.

All the very best
Annie


PS: I am not just a knitter, i like sewing and crafting Teddy Bears ;O)
