Wollmeise-Color-Potpourri


6 1/2 years it was rather silent on my knitting blog.
To celebrate my back to normal life,
I used one of my most favourite yarns to 
create a colourful dress.
I used a lot of different techniques,
different Colors from Wollmeise.
All 100% wool. 
My Wollmeise yarn, I bought from 
KB-Design, Brigitte was downsizing
her stash. Thank you very mucH.
When I knit something without any plans in 
advance its whatever comes to my mind.
I always start with a gauge in stockinette stitch.
This dress was knitted bottom up,
first the skirt,
the the upper part,
the sleeves,
the collar 
and while knitting the skirt, I decided 
to create kind of a tulip skirt with some 
different color downwards.
The dress is not blocked yet but due
to the nice weather we have got today,
taking pictures was a must.
I will shoot wearing pictures as soon
as its washed and blocked and the weather
allows it again. 



The sight from our upper balcony 
but I had to bring them a bit closer,
most of the sheep are wearing bells and
they love to run up and down the hill...
music the whole day and many times
during the night too...
