Knitting Entrelac

For some time now I'm again obsessed to knit.
The LQS sells wool as well and the owner offered a One-Day-workshop 10 das ago.
That's what I did so far

Done with Schoppel's Zauberball in the color "Blaukraut bleibt Blaukraut"

Knitting in the heat of the day

Das "Leftie" - Tuch von Martina Behm (s. Ravelry) macht solchen Spaß, dass ich trotz der Hitze stricke .....

Margit asked about the wool: The green is handdyed yarn which is usually used for socks (420 m = 100 gr) the solid is from Lana Grossa, cool wool Needle 3,5 (that's because I'm knitting strongly) In the middle of a heatwave I'm sitting with yarn and knit the " leftie " ( pattern at Ravelry )

played with the PicMonkey software ....

busy busy bee

My friend Elaine in San Luis Obispo just destashed her fabric stash. I was one of the lucky customers ;-) I got the perfect fabric bundles in addition to fabrics I bought on my wonderful journey in January ( in California ) here they are in their wellorganized drawer - do you see the paisley cream fabric on top, Elaine? I think it fits too
I couldn't find a place to put them, because my sewing studio was a MESS !!!! NO, I don't post a picture!!! no no But I'm busy the 3rd day now digging through my drawers which holds my fabrics. And - oh wonder - I found white-on-white-fabrics at least in 4 different places, now they are sitting nicely folded at the right spot. AND I'M SHURE - I don't need to buy WOW for quiet some time ;-) The same happened to my purple/violet/lavender stash I'm collecting for some time now. They are filling one drawer now and I think, I can stop buying purple. Have to stock up the caterpillar greens I need with them ;-)
BTW: I don't really need anymore batics right now .... just saying Next is to put all the stuff away which is piling on the floor and every horizontal surface .... see you later played with a new (for me) programm and added frames and text, have to blame Jenni that I got sidetracked ....

Ja, iss denn schon Weihnachten??? Or - santa sent a wonderful parcel today

To tell the truth, it wasn't Santa - the parcel arrived from my PSW aka "personal shopping witch" in Delaware. Carrie sent really big pieces of wonderful wool fabric AND a bundle of wool thread for the embroidery AND stamps ( for my scrapbooking stash) and a Bonnie Hunter template and needles AND a quilting stencil - just overwhelming!!!
Thank you so much, Carrie
