Olé Olé blanket: The border Feb08 Good evening ladies, Hope everything is fine ! Let me begin this post by thanking each and every one of you… one by one… every single one… for every sweet comment you left on my Olé Olé blanket post…Your words filled my heart with a big joy and I felt sooo happy reading them This is, as promised, the graphic pattern of the border of Olé Olé blanket: You have to make two rows of dc first and for the third row (in red) all you have to do is to crochet by following the steps 1, 2, 3 and 4 (in light blue) It is very easy, you’ll see as soon as you’ll try Classic Cuffed Hat For as long as I can remember, every Sunday my grandmother makes fresh pasta from scratch, and every Sunday she uses the same metal pasta maker she got as a wedding anniversary gift from my grandfather in 1961. When we press her to upgrade to a new machine, she always responds, “It’s hard to improve on a classic!” I revisited the truth in my grandmother’s words when I set out to make this winter’s hat. How could I improve on a classic winter hat?
Cap Sleeve Lattice Top Watching the sparce grid of the pergola become overrun with wisteria and roses was a sure sign of the hot summer days to come. This sweater is a delightfully quick project to welcome spring and to wear right through summer.

Haz Wool, Will Knit: January 2012 Not that I like to be seen to pander too much to my blogger stats and comments, but it does seem that there are a few people out there who would like to know how I made my Killing Jumper. I'm not going to describe what follows as a pattern, it is more working notes on what I did. I hope they make sense and provide some help, if not drop me a line.
Silken Straw Summer Sweater I've always been surprised by knitters who put their needles down for the summer. How do they occupy their hands for those three months? I've wondered. Do they take up smoking? Even if I'd ever been able to break my knitting habit, I've never really seen a reason to.

Sarah Lund jumper My Mam really likes Scandi Crime.. so I accidentally ended up watching and enjoying the second series of The Killing with her earlier this year. It is famous of course for the Jumper that the main character Sarah Lund wore: The jumper is made by the Faroese company Gudrun & Gudrun, they are beautiful and very rightly cost a lot of money.. so I did a bit of internet sleuthing and managed to gather enough information that made me think I could possibly knit my own.. the most helpful information I found was this project on Ravelry, it gave me the basic shape and by looking at the jumper I made a wee chart on DesignAKnit and gave it a go! I think i can safely say ill be knitting with 8mm needles more often! it was so fast, i got the body knitted in a few days, got one sleeve done then… the usual.
