Silk, with a touch of Vintage

100 % Silk with a touch of Vintage
with matching scarf, (not my design)
my own design- top and skirt 
hand knitted,
taking place at the Lake of Constance

100% Seide mit einem Hauch von Vintage,
dazu ein Schal
mein eigenes Design
hand gestrickt
am Bodensee

click on the first picture to make them all large
auf das erste Bild klicken, dann gibts
die Vergrösserungen... 

The start and yes, I do know that
drawing isn't my thing... I usually
start with a few sketches taking place in my brain,
I bring them to paper followed by 
the knitting needles doing the job with
the help of Audio books. My favourites 
are Nordic thrillers.. 

adding by hand of course 

on the way

knitting this whole thing was a pain in the Arctic...
never  would I use such a yarn again.....
expensive doesn't always means quality

before adding the neckline and some more

yes.. not bad so far

and the final look

I knitted everything during the winter
gestrickt habe ich alles letzten Winter

Until next time -
bis zum nächsten Mal

FairIsle Skirt and Unicorn Parallegrams

a click on the first picture will enlarge them all...

FairIsle Skirt with Unicorn Parellegrams by Stephen West
I used up my leftover yarn from Kate Davies

100% Scottish Woll
Kate Davies Design
110 mtr per 50 g

Unicorn Parellegrams by Stephen West 
I have introduced this scarf already here 

Its my own design and I used 
cables and different Fairisle patterns 
from my own librarary..
yes, I do collect knitting books 

Since it has minus 7 degrees Celsius today,
I simply found it to cold to wear the outfit myself

The matching hat I bought secondhand 
and its from Kenzo... 

I was really lucky to be able to shoot 
these pictures with a bit of sun because
5 minutes later the clouds had taken over again..

matching leather boots 

in the wood next to us, lots of trees are
taken down and I can't really say
that I like it... 

 and 5 minuts later- it was back to grey.. or
on the way to grey..

and now a few pictures knitting 
this skirt.. it took place last

all the best

Color your life in 2017

Ein Pulli, mein eigenes Design,
das alles beinhaltet.
Material- das Feinste vom Feinsten



This pullover is my own creation.
The material  only the best of the best

and 100% Cashmere 

which I bought
in Kirkenes, Norway and I can't give out
the name of the yarn because I have thrown away
the bandrole. 

Die Fotos wurden am Bodensee am 26. Dezember 2016 gemacht,
es war sehr kalt aber wunderbar sonnig.
The Pictures were taken at the Lake of Constance
26th of December 2016
It was really cold but nice and sunny.

Ich beschäftige mich immer noch
mit diesem Projekt.
I am still working on this project

Es grüsst herzlich
