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...

Wollmeise Color Potpurri with
the Lake of Constance in the back..

ah I can see myself ....

one could almost think its warm outside..

.. on the way to go...

on the way to go...

and this time a bit closer... 

FairIsle but it will look better as soon as its washed 
and blocked

the last rose in the garden.. it saw already a
bit snow and some really cold nights and

Until next time
