one scarf finished !

Winnie is a regular visitor of my knitting club.  She has been working on this scarf for a while, and has finished it yesterday.  It's in 2 colours red and gray, but the wool also changes from silky to fluffy.  It is a wonderful rich effect. 
Some time ago she went to a colour analist, and learned that she's a 'cold wintertype'.  So the strong reds and cool grays are perfect colours for her, that will match with a lot of her clothes.
She's proud of that scarf and wants to share it with you all.  

posing like a true model !

There is a crochet border all around the scarf.

A warm winter scarf to be used a lot

home made xmas decorations

I have been busy making some new xmas ornaments. 
In an old magazine (2009 ! Never throw away old magazines...) I found the pattern of these angels.

With some left over wool from Zeeman, I started knitting.  All the pieces are knit seperately : the body, the arms, the sleeves, the legs, the short pants, the hands, the hat.  Next, make the heads, piece of cake compared to the teddybears.  Then you sew it all together, put some filling in and look how pretty they have become !

one in red, with buttons and a starry staff

and one in gray, with metallic buttons sprinkled all over
The most difficult was to find the wooden stand.  Nowhere to be found in Oostende...  I had to travel to Bruges, and found it in a crafts shop called 'De Banier'.   I know, you can make it yourself.  But me, wood, and carving ,  it's not a good combination.  Murphy(*)  is always sitting on my shoulder, and I don't want to loose any fingers in the process...

 (*) Murphy, from Murphy's law - you know that guy.  When things can go wrong, they will go wrong....
