Episode 21

The voting is over and Dream Stripes by Cailliau Berangere has won with 38% and a good second Leftie by Martina Dehm.
So we will be knitting the Dream Stripes. The KAL is going to start like today and will go on untill may 15 2013. So you do not have to cast on right away. Find the perfect yarn and then get going.
Tag your project with DSKSDH (DreamStripsKalSweDutchHandcrafts) so it will be easier to randomly pick a winner from the finished objects.

We now have 74 for members and I am really excited about that!
Every week I draw a RAP from the group, as you all now, and this time Nancy Liedel won a RAP.
I have sent her the Color Affection by Veera Välimäki.

The knitting bag I got in the mail is from Maria Elena's Bliss and here you can find here on Etsy.

I hope I did not forget anything.

Episode 20

I have been good and bad this week. Finished my moms cardigan (as good as). It is going on the needles again for the button band. I have been infected by the "Color Affection" and knitted one in 4 days. A new record has set. Made some boxes for stitch markers for my knitting retreat coming Thursday till Sunday and I have still a lot to do. Frogged a cardigan and hopefully I will cast on a new one inspired by the Color Affection shawl.

This week's RAP is going to Jackie-Knits and she had on her wishlist the Traveling Woman by Liz Abinante

The nominees for the KAL shawl are:
1. Leftie by Martina Behm
2. Dream Stripes by Cailliau Berangere
3. Saroyan by Liz Abinante
4. Cedar Leaf Shawlette by Alan Dakos
5. Primavera by Kimberly Gintar

You have a week to vote on my Ravelry group.
Come and join us and then we can get starting with knitting.

See you next week!

Episode 19: Finally some progress

I finished two socks this weekend:
One vanilla and one Cable Sock by CroJulee (on Ravelry). Her pattern hasn't come out yet.

And I am finally making progress on my mom's cardigan.
Hope I will finish it this week so I can move on!

Thank you for watching!
