I won´t bore you anymore about the murky weather we are still having here! You know how it goes by now: snow, ice, ...

So I tried to do something against it: I knitted a beret for me ( my DH has already got one) and my DS does not want one!
That´s the Relm Tam from
Knit.1. I knitted it with the left-overs from the cardigan I showed last week.

And I finished my Marlene socks from the same magazine as mentioned above.
The yarn is 100% Merino wool and very warm.

Yesterday my DS and I dyed some more sock yarn. This is a great way to learn a bit about colour theory. Take yellow and blue to get green is simple enough but it becomes a bit more complicated when it goes to how to transform a yukky brown into a warm caramel brown!
Pictures of the results next time.

I learned today that I will teach a workshop on scrap quilts in two weeks time. So now I have to sew some sampler blocks and work on the course of events, busy week ahead!
I wish you a nice week with a lot of time for crafty projects.

I do so admire your knitting abilities. Everything you knit is so beautiful. :)

Ahhh - but cold weather gives you the opportunity to wear beautiful knit hats and yummy warms socks. I think it might not be too bad. They look wonderful *s*
