Off and on my needles

Since it's been so cold, wet and snowy here, I've been getting quite a bit of knitting done. :-)
Here are the socks I made as a birthday present for a friend. I have to say, I really love knit picks sock yarn! So soft and cozy and the colors are great. Hope my friend will like them as much as I do!
Nachdem es bei uns so kalt und nass ist, war ich fleissig am Stricken. :-)
Die Socken die als Geburtstagsgeschenk fuer eine Freundin gedacht sind, wurden die Tage fertig.
Ich bin von knit picks Sockenwolle ganz begeistert. Sie ist so weich und kuschelig und die Farben gefallen mir wirklich gut. Ich hoffe meiner Freundin werden sie genauso gut gefallen.
 I was also able to finish the lace scarf. It looks so delicate and I'm pretty happy with my first lace project.
Der Spitzenschal ist auch fertig geworden. Er sieht so fein uns zart aus und ich bin recht zufrieden damit.

 This is going to be the "radiant sweater" from the lion brand yarn company. I found the pattern on ravelry and the fact that it's a simple and quick knit really appealed to me. It's pretty cold here right now and I'm hoping to get some wear out of it pretty soon. :-) The yarn I'm using is from knit picks, "Andes del Campo" in the colorway persimmon heather.
Das Muster fuer diesen Pullover habe ich auf ravelry gefunden. Es heisst "radiant sweater" und ist von der lion brand yarn company. Der Pulli geht ganz leicht und schnell zu stricken, und da es hier momentan so kalt ist, habe ich Hoffnung ihn bald anziehen zu koennen. Die Wolle ist von knit picks, "Andes del Campo" und die Farbe heisst "persimmon heather".
