Another Japanese Book

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 12:16 pm 0 comments

 I had to wait very patiently for this one. It should have been released in Oct. 2019. It got delayed. And then it got even more delayed thanks to Covid-19.

But then yesterday I had the notification from Amazon that it is shipped. I nearly fell off my chair. And today I finally can admire it.

It's over 300 pages of beautiful knitting and crochet patterns. I just quickly glanced through it and I am already on love with it.

A perfect surprise for xmas. πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ’πŸ˜








History of Trees Shawl

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 11:54 am 0 comments

 After all the Advents offers by Deramores I ended up buying the crochet kit for the History of Trees shawl.

I worked with this yarn before but never finished the Hygge Shawls. I found Scheepjes Stone Washed too heavy to be comfortable. It probably would have ended to become a table runners and not stoles. So I sold the lot a few years ago.

I was a bit apprehensive about using the same yarn again because it's rather a heavy yarn. But this shawl uses a lot of treble stitches so I thought why not.

The pattern is available here

Here is the result:

Across the Pond Cowl

 The lovely ladies from "Always Knitting and Sewing" showed during their podcast this cowl made from Stylecraft Dream Catcher and Stylecraft Highland Heathers yarn.

It just loved it. I have already two colours of Dream Catcher yarn leftover so I just needed the two contrast colours.

The pattern is available here
