last week i started knitting with the yarn vanessa sent me. it took some time to find the right project, i have only one skein and i really want to make something pretty with this yarn.
(which is 100% cashmere, sooo soft!)
i decided on making these honeycomb wristwarmers, a free pattern i found on ravelry. i wanted something with a simple design, this yarn is so nice it doesn't need complicated designs or patterns. just the honeycomb stitch (which is really, really easy) and stockinette. i think it's looking great, so far!

i also knitted my second swatch for the swatch-a-week challenge:
no.2: structure/color #1
this one wasn't as much fun to knit as the previous one, not that it was difficult, i just didn't enjoy it. not a stitch for me! (it did match my cardigan though!) next up is ajour, something i never tried... so i'm looking forward to that! :)


  1. Wow, beautiful pattern for wristwarmers, love the yarn as well!

  2. Oooh! Ik heb een vestje met een gat erin, in die laatste steek. Zou je dat kunnen herstellen (tegen betaling off course)?

  3. juffrouw sanseveria; heu, daar wil ik wel eens naar kijken, mail anders meer details door severienvandam*at*hotmail*dot*com :)

  4. Dat worden mooie polswarmers! En inderdaad, als je wol zo mooi is, heb je geen al te speciale steken nodig. Ik vind simpel eigenlijk zelfs meestal nog 't mooiste...

  5. Waauw, die wol. Ik ben jaloers nu ;-). Dat gaat mooi worden en zacht ook denk ik!

  6. woaaah ik vind die steek er anders wel heel leuk uitzien voor een sjaal, in dat kleurtje :)!


thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! :)
