I have had torn tendons for several months in my left hand and after a visit with the USA hand surgeon... and after having my hand/arm in a cast for a month (and barely skipped having to have hand surgery) and finally in a brace for months he told me: NO KNITTING/etc... while I was recovering....

However, I am finally well enough to knit something... :cheering: :happydance: and last week--I worked on a baby gift that was long due... I had missed knitting so much and it was great to check in to see all the knitted items here.

Thanks! :hug: I thought that the yarn would go with any color of coat/sweater ?? Or whatever they will put on a 3 month old for her first winter!

Thanks all...

Yes, I'm enjoying Germany. I live in such a beautiful place- and now that I finally have the INTERNET in my home -- I can update my blog- which I have done for the past couple of days.
There are some photos of the local area that I posted in July or August when I first arrived on the blog too.
I've been unpacking some today- so, I haven't knitted any yet today.

It really is a very cute set, and you're right, it'll go with anything they wish to put the baben in.

My memory is gone today, what part of Deutchland are you in? Have you found the 'hauptbanhoff' and 'die toilete'?
The most important thing to find is the best gasthaus around, where they serve really good food, like schnitzel and knodel. (My spelling is atrocious, sorry.)

Your yard looks great, do you like to garden, or is that one of these: :roflhard: As in, where would I find time?
The summers in Bavaria were perfect for veggies, as long as you found 80-90 day crops. Hops seem to grow year round, which works out, as beer does too. I LOVED the Volksmarches, especially the beginning,middle and ends,where you could have beer or wine or cider and a snack. Brochen and Marken butter come to mind, while everyone else was eating wurst, I was having a love affair with REAL butter.

My pie is ready to come out of the oven . . . bye!

I'm working on a pair of mittens (to match the hat that I've already made) to donate to the: Alaska Head Start Mitten program... I'm following a hand tracing that I made of a kindergartener student that I had in class last week for art. :woot: The first one was fine... now, let's see if I can make a match?? :aww:


CHECK out my blog.. it is ONE YEAR OLD on OCT 8. :teehee: I finally got Internet service in my house about 3 days ago..

LOL - well the set is gorgeous! I, too, love the colorway. So glad you are well enough to knit again. I know how frustrating it must have been to not be able to play with yarn for such a long time.

For most of this I used the double pointed needles... easy to use- (eventually) but, not the best type of needle for beginning knitters. I don't even know what size they were-- in the mess of 'unpacking/moving' ... I have lost the ONLY needle gauge that I had left. Sigh.. However, I think that they were about a 4.5mm or 5mm or even a 5.5mm size. I made this up myself - except for the booties.. and I 'kind of' followed a pattern... for the most part.
