Knitted Connecting Stripes Tunnel Scarf

This Knitted Connecting Stripes Tunnel Scarf is a leftover knitting project. So over the years I’ve knitted a few scarfs and warps. The Mondsee scarf was the last one but also the Camus wrap, Varjo, Sonnensegel, Me and You and Keffiyeh wrap came from my knitting needles.
Just like I want to reduce my fabric stash I’ve the same mission for my knitting yarn. I’ve already used some lefrovers to knit tiny hats for the Innocent elderly campaign. Last winter I forgot to take a scarf while leaving public transport with me and started knitting a new one.
This project was set aside when it became Spring. Weather is slightly moving towards Autumn so perfect to finish this UFO leftover project.

Mondsee scarf another Knitted Wrap

Mondsee scarf knitted in grey and blue is a beautiful scarf because of the rectangular shape and due to this shape it’s a very versatile shawl. The Mondsee sarf is knitted in stockinette stitch and has nine coloured sections that are made with short rows. I have this pattern more two years in my possession and I made this scarf using all kind of stash yarns.

Mondsee scarf knitted in grey and blue – the pattern

Monie Ebner is the designer of the Mondsee scarf. She has some lovely designs and this scarf is one of them. The pattern is available on Ravelry. The instructions are well written and there’s a diagram that shows the layout of the contrast colour sections. This pattern also comes with a link to Purlbee how to knit the short rows. I decided to knit a complete rectangular version and skip the fishtail sections at both ends.

Personalised College Scarf

Personalised College Scarf – the history

Personalised College Scarf takes me back to my school days. When I went to high school it was fashion to wear a college scarf. Even in those days I loved wearing a classic non fashion style of clothes. I didn’t wear many grey pleated skirts but instead I was wearing jeans combined with beautiful stylish Kerko dress shirts and lovely soft pink and blue cardigans. I even had a dark blue double breasted college coat. A college scarf was perfect to finish this look. These type of scarfs are made of wool and still available. Many years ago I bought a brown-camel version (which you can on the IG-image) for my husband to wear it together with his suede jacket. The one I had is gone.

Black yoke lace insert Top

The Black yoke lace insert Top is made of the top of a discarded dress and some leftover knitted fabric. I was inspired by the yoke when I saw one of my husbands dress shirts. This dress shirt has a yoke with a slightly curved effect. I really liked the shape and decided to copy this in my self drafted Top pattern. I decided to draft my own Top pattern because I had to draft the yoke anyway. One can easily find all kinds of instructions on the internet to do so. I also could make it suitable for my personal fit because I wanted a comfortable look.

Knitting the Camus wrap

IMG_0953 x omKnitted wraps are really pleasant to have and to wear. Even in the summer they can be of great use when it’s getting colder in the evening. In the winter they are cozy and comfy: something to hide in while sitting on the bench reading a book.

Omslagdoeken zijn altijd plezierig om te hebben. Zomers als het wat frisser wordt in de avond sla je er een makkelijk om je heen. In de winter geven ze je een heerlijk gevoel als je er een om hebt terwijl je op de bank zit en een boek leest.

UFO knitting projects

IMG_0818Since I joint a stash busting group there is already about 8m gone and turned into clothes. Although I thought I had a clear vision of my UFO’s and that I had finished them all the reality is that when more stash fabric were turned into clothes one bag turnes up with unfinished knitting projects.

Sinds ik lid ben geworden van een stash busting group is 8m stofvoorraad kleding geworden. Ofschoon ik dacht een duidelijk beeld te hebben van mijn UFO’s en dat ik alles weggewerkt had de werkelijkheid is dat ik een zak tegenkwam met daarin twee nog niet afgebreide sjaals.

Shadow Inspiration or Follow the Shadow

IMG_1854A couple of weeks ago when I was clearing out and rearranging fabric I came across my knitting projects and yarn. There were three UFO’s in a bag and I decided to start finishing this three UFO’s. I haven’t set a date, because there also some sewing UFO’s who needs to be finished. Today I’ve finished one of these knitting UFO’s.

Een paar weken geleden was ik stof aan het opruimen en herschikken en kwam daarbij mijn breiwerk en garen tegen. Er lagen drie UFO’s in een zak en ik besloot om ze af te maken, zonder er een einddatum aan te hangen. Vandaag heb ik een van deze breiwerken afgemaakt.
