Yarn along

I can't believe it's been weeks since I last participated in the yarn along... There is always some form of knitting going on, I just never remembered to take a picture in time...
I'm still knitting on the cardigan with the baby alpaca yarn I brought from Germany. The yarn is a dream, but I'm not having as much fun as I normally do knitting. My only guess is, it's because I can't quite picture the outcome yet. I mean, I've seen the picture in the magazine, I read the pattern multiple times, and yet some of the steps still take me "by surprise". The cardigan is knit sideways in one piece and the decreases, picking up stitches, measuring to make sure the sides are even is just not as easy as I had imagined. So, it will definitely get finished, but I'm taking my time.
Hannah finally got me reading the Hunger Games trilogy and I am so glad she did. She has read the series probably three times already (once mandatory reading in school) and kept talking very highly of it. Well, she was right, I can hardly put the books down...
Die Zeit vergeht im Moment wie im Flug, ich weiss gar nicht mehr wann ich das letzte Mal beim Yarn along mitgemacht habe. Irgendetwas habe ich immer auf den Nadeln, nur hatte ich immer vergessen es zu photografieren...
Ich stricke noch an der Weste aus der Baby Alpaca Wolle die ich in Dtld gekauft habe. Die Wolle selbst ist ein Traum, trotzdem macht mir das Stricken nicht soviel Spass wie sonst. Ich denke es liegt an der Weste selbst, sie wird seitwaerts in einem Teil gestrickt und obwohl ich das Bild gesehen habe, die Anleitung hundert mal durchgelesen habe, kann ich mir immer noch nicht vorstellen wie es fertig aussehen soll. Seitwaerts abnehmen fuer den Kragen, Maschen stilllegen, das Armloch seitwaerts stricken, ist alles etwas neu fuer mich und deshalb stricke ich im Augenblick eher weniger. Oh, die Weste wird definitiv fertig gestrickt, nur lasse ich mir dieses Mal halt ein bissl mehr Zeit.
Hannah hat mich endlich dazu ueberredet die "Hunger Games" Trilogie zu lesen, und ich bin richtig froh darueber. Sie selbst hat die Serie schon drei mal gelesen (einmal in der Schule) und war total begeistert davon. Jetzt wo ich die Buecher selbst lese, weiss ich auch warum. Ich kann fast nicht mit Lesen aufhoeren.

I have to tell you, I am so jealous of your spring...we still have a way to go before the spring flowers come out of hiding.

  5. I loved the Hunger Games, I hope you do too! I know what you mean about not being able to picture the outcome, that always helps me too. I once knit a hat sideways and I wasn't sure what was going on until the very end. It turned out great though, and I'm sure yours will too.

  6. Hi!
    Just stopping in with the Yarn Along.
    Sometimes I feel like patterns are written in a foreign language... oh, wait. My current one is! In German too! (And sorry, I don't speak German...)
    Happy knitting!

  7. Wow, das sieht in der Tat ganz schön kompliziert aus, du bist ja mutig! Von den Hunger Games hab ich auch noch nie gehört, aber wahrscheinlich wird es mir ab heute ständig begegnen...

  8. I saw the hunger games movie preview, and I've realized that I really need to read the book! (Actually, it's on my hulu right now!) I have so much trouble when I can't "see" a pattern in my head, you're not alone...

  9. I need to visualise whatever I'm knitting or sewing too. If I can't see where one bit of it goes, it totally throws me. Good luck with the cardigan. Sounds gorgeous yarn.
