Just a quick note...

and picture of my freshly knitted Cupido cowl :-) I found the pattern on Ravelry, but there's also a blog post about it on Please Don't Eat the Daisies if you'd just like to see a few photos. I finished knitting the baby blanket some time ago (but haven't blocked it yet, and time is getting short...) and there were two skeins of yarn left. I had had no idea how much I'd need and decided to be on the safe side. I thought about putting the two remaining skeins in the shop, but when I saw the pattern for the Cupido cowl, I just had to knit it and the yarn seemed perfect. I absolutely loved knitting with the yarn (it's so fluffy and soft!), but since the colours really don't look so good on me I hope to trade the cowl for something I can't make myself. I might put the last remaining skein in the shop, though, which is white, blue and yellow. I'll need to take photos some of these days.

In other respects I'm spending pretty much of my time studying, my first oral exam will be at the end of the month. It's freaking me out and alternately filling me with joy since it will bring me closer to the end of my student days...


  1. Das Muster ist wirklich wundervoll! Danke fürs Posten des Ravelry-Links. Ich bin zwar längst noch nicht so weit, dass ich das stricken könnte, aber ich hoffe, dass ich das irgendwann kann.

    Liebe Grüße, auch von Lorelai ;D

  2. Das Muster ist gar nicht schwer. Wenn du linke und rechte Maschen kannst, ist der Rest nur noch zählen und daran gewöhnt man sich schnell :-) Ist durchaus was für Anfänger/innen, finde ich. Das einzig lästige war das Aufnehmen am Anfang - bei 200 Maschen werde ich schnell seeehr ungeduldig.

    Von Lorelai habe ich über den Podcast von FP schon gehört :-) Und auch dass meine Freundin und Blogpartnerin TQ ihre Restaurationserfahrung einbringen konnte. Sehr cool!
