Finished


After weaving in all threads and sewing the ends together I can call this project finished.





I used a circular needle (addi) size 3mm.
Yarn: Holst Garn Supersoft. 
This yarn is available in more than 100 colors. It's a fingering weight shetland wool. Because of the spinning oil the yarn feels a bit thin and coarse but after a few washings the yarn becomes softer, gentle and more fluffy. Even after the first washing I noticed already a big difference.

I cast on 120 stitches and 
I knitted 3 rows stockinette stitch then a pattern from the book '200 fair isle motifs' by Mary Jane Mucklestone (is ook verkrijgbaar in het nederlands) then 3 rows stockinette stitch. Repeat till desire length. 
I used patterns from the book which are divisible by 120.

I knitted two handed by this technique from philosopher wool


Look at this picture. It's my last finished quilt top and my cowl. Isn't it fun. Color and pattern has everything to do with mood ;-)

Ohhhhh....Lucy, wat is tie prachtig geworden! Wat een heerlijkheid als je zoiets af hebt, echt geweldig, en die wol is zo mooi dun dus dat draagt vast heel lekker, en ja, leuk dat je zelfs met de wol ook weer dezelfde kleuren kiest als met de stof, dat kom ik dan ook steeds weer tegen.

Misschien ooit:)

Absolutely beautiful, I would want to wear it every day. Congratulations. I want to knit a scarf in the round also but could never tackle all of these patterns...although a person should try. Happy Easter.

Beautiful, beautiful!! And your photo sequence is perfect. Thanks so much for sharing the details. I haven't knitted in quite a while but have been tempted to return to it.

Vond je het in het begin moeilijk om zo te breien?
Ze zien er alle twee heel mooi uit.
Genieten.

Groetjes,

Having knitted a lot myself, I know the difficulty of your cowl, you deserve congratulations! As regards the colors similar to your quilt top... it's your style!

Phyllis said...

Prachtig! Om verliefd op te worden... die kleuren, die patronen, dat garen. Ziet er gewassen inderdaad veel zachter uit als ervoor. Mooi hoor, die foto van de shawl met die top, misschien wel mijn favoriete foto die je ooit van je projecten geplaatst hebt. Fijne Paasdagen voor jullie allemaal... nu nog even het weer...

What a bit of inspiration - I am not a knitter but certainly a quilter - I have loved this quilt ever since you posted the first picture - it is a MUST do for me....
May just get it started today!!

Thank you Lucy :)

Karen said...

It is always a treat to peruse one of your blog posts. The scarf looks like it was a difficult thing to create. And the fabrics so similar in color to the scarf.

wow wow wow, Lucy! I can't find the right words to say just how beautiful it is. It's amazing.

Lucy, that is just beautiful. You accomplish so much. I admire all you do

Barbara said...

Hello Lucy, I found your blog several months ago when I had too much time on my hands due to an unexpected illness. Your beautiful photographs and inspirational quilting, knitting and home keeping kept my spirits up when I was at my lowest.
I am now back to work part time and can look forward to our summer vacation when I plan to make a quilt in the spirit of your lovely quilt.
When I am exhausted from teaching I read through past posts and pages of your blog and past years' photos for peaceful rejeuvination and inspiration.
THANK YOU for your creativity and artistic skills in all that you do~you have brought my life such joy.
Best wishes, Barbara in California

Lucy said...

Dear Barabara,thank you for your sweet comment. You make me blush :-)

Ik vind deze zo mooi! Ik zou heel graag mijn eigen breien maar vraag me af hoe lang deze shawl is en hoeveel deze weegt. Dan heb ik een beetje indicatie hoeveel wol ik nodig heb.
