COLOURS ON MY NEEDLES
November 18, 2011 by Teje
Hello my Dear Friends! Welcome to my fiber Friday!
I have beautiful new colours in my knitting basket! Half wool – half acrylic and really soft yarn! Enjoy to knit for my friends!
This lovely, curly sheep fleece is from my cousin, who has sheeps, horses, ponies, chickens, dogs, cats… I got this fleece once when I was lucky to visit her amazing farm in Finland. I have to show you who else found it soft and warm …
No way I could have even the smallest chair just for myself! I had put this stool under the table to take it next to my armchair when I knit.
As you know I love colours and often I enjoy arranging things by colour. I made these ‘still life’ just for you …
Local pomegranates in delicious autumn colours. Pomegranate is also very famous theme for many kind of creations to bring good luck for the New Year! You can find them made for example with silver, ceramic and glass.
And local bananas from my hb:s cousin! They are really delicious and have so strong aroma!
Now I’m knitting socks to my friend’s daughter and I think they will be fantastic with this bright orange! The colour is her choice and I don’t complain to knit whit this energy colour!
One of my favourite colours for a long time has been olive green, ‘oil’ like they say in Greek. And even better if it’s like watercoloured as this yarn is …
This yarn is the same I used for the ‘Rainbow’ cowl and it has really beautiful colours! I’m knitting ‘fingerless’ for my self. I have so often cold hands and in winter especially when writing on the computer or knitting I need these. In fact this is my first try to make these even during the years I have knitted countless pairs of gloves and mittens.
I have made these last days many times applepie because my dear friend brought to me lots of sweet apples from her farm! Thank you!
When I passed the beach few days ago, I thought that perhaps you would like to see how it looks this time of the year. For a while beaches have been already empty – only perhaps someone ‘winter swimmer’ may be there running on the beach and having a swim. But for me it’s absolutely too cold this time.
This is the beach of Kalathas, about 5 minutes drive from our home. It is on my way to ‘Maherida’ our Holiday Homes. I never get tired to see the sea, which is every day different and usually has amazing turquoise and blue colours!
I want to thank you for your company today and for all your sweet messages! It was so great to hear that you liked my Suprise Christmas quilt! I wish you wonderful weekend, good weather and hope to see you soon! I’m waiting exited to see what you have been knitting and sewing, knowing that you are busy with your Christmas crafts! Still I hope you have time to share them with us!
I leave you with my favourite sheep!
