Another project finished… :)

Standard

Remember the last photo? here is the finished version… I am happy with the result! I finished this some weeks ago, but I was lacking some time to actually take pictures of what I did. Next time I have to make sure my camera is working so that the photos will look more professional. But so far this will do:) I’m a knitter, not a photographer!

Now I would like to get ready for spring and summer, working more with cotton and just enjoy the process. There is also a possibility of me exposing my products in April! that means I have to focus on my knitting and crochet! That’s good news, after all. I won’t be feeling guilty of procrastinating too much with my needles, at least:)

Ps. I took this pattern from the book Premiers Pas au Tricot by Camille Clavi. I totally recommend this book!

New project!!!

Not sure what to call this new project, but hopefully it will be finished this week! I will post the end result here… I am very glad I started to knit clothing pieces, even though I was reluctant at first. It takes a lot of pacience to follow patterns and designs I see on books, but I am very motivated now 🙂 This one here was taken out of a french knitting book for begginers. The front and back parts are symmetrical and I can dress it closing it with two buttons on the right and left side / you can see the buttonholes in the image. Hopefully this will look good and I can use it very soon! Sewing the endings of the yarn, though, will take some time….

Soon I will have to start working with cotton to prepare my spring and summer pieces;)

Also, this month I have started an AFK workshop in Leiden and also taught other friend how to knit! In the space of a month 3 people are now able to knit themselves a cozy warm scarf!

Feels good to meet up with other new knitters;)

 

AFK HAS NOW VISIT CARDS! :)

Although I have been quite busy with my knitting (happily busy, I must say!) I just made visit cards for my project to spread around Utrecht and the Netherlands in general:) I’m quite happy with the result… What do you think?
I have already managed to do some small promotion in a very “gezellig” coffee place, and they even alowed me to expose some of my pieces there. It’s time to get creative and learn more techniques!

A work in progress!

This is something I’ve been working on for a while… It’s a crochet blanket with wool I bought in Portugal at an old small wool shop. It’s quite fast to do and I really like how it looks! I crochet big squares as in the upper right picture and then I sew them. What do you guys think? would you like one for yourself?

I’m so excited about this blanket!!!!
I will keep you updated;)
