Im August habe ich nun endlich den Teststrick für Mona beendet, Glaukopis, ein Oberteil für den Sommer. Genaueres kann man hier nachlesen. Diesen Monat habe ich daher einiges mehr verstrickt als die Monate davor, nämlich 367g / 1 276 m. Aus dem Vorrat gingen 4 Knäuel raus, 3 kamen rein (nachträglich noch zum Geburtstag von meiner Schwester).

In August, I finally finished the test knit for Mona, a summer top – Glaukopis. You can read more about it in this entry. I knit up a bit more yarn than in the previous months, 367 g / 1 276 m. 4 skeins left the stash, 3 were added (late birthday presents from my sister).

WIPs

  1. Captured Colours, a test knit for Chrissy (Stitched-Together).
  2. Evasion. I just had to cast on something that involved a bit more than stockinette.
  3. Fantomas (I finally settled on a pullover for my husband! Knit from Coast and Supersoft, held double)
  4. Stripey blanket, using up some rather old yarn that I inherited

NAPs (needle adjacent projects, ready to be cast on as soon as something else is cast off – thanks to the Stockinette Zombies for this definition)

  1. Whippet. This summer calls for a light-weight cardigan.
  2. Another Split top😉

On the radar (high up in my queue)

Quite a lot of stuff – but I am a bit sick of endless rounds and rounds of stockinette, so there might be some lace knitting in the near future. There are plenty of beautiful single skeins in my stash that deserve to be knitted up. And my daughter wants me to knit her a pullover. But that will be mostly stockinette again.

Im August bin ich einiges durch die Gegend gereist – Urlaub im Pfälzer Wald/Nordvogesen, Tagung in Montpellier und Arbeitstreffen in Monte Verita, Ascona. Ausserdem ich musste mich von meiner Lieblingskatze, Kitty, für immer verabschieden. Ich werde sie vermissen.

I’ve travelled quite a bit in August – holiday spent in Palatine Forest / Vosges du Nord, a conference in Montpellier, and a workshop at Monte Verita, Ascona. And I had to say good bye forever to my favourite cat, Kitty. I will miss her.

    Jaja, so viel glatt rechts ist nicht zu unterschätzen😉 Ich finde ja dein Sommeroberteil immer noch super, so eins möchte ich auch und versuche schon eifrig meine Jacken-UFOs unter Kontrolle zu bringen.
    Hoffentlich war dein Sommer schön!

    Und ich schließe mich auch deiner anderen Leserin an und wünsche dir alle Gute. Ein Haustier zu verlieren ist immer ein bisschen tragisch.
    Alles Liebe,
    Margareta
