Wreath with two front sides

Summer time is over now, so there is some time for knitting again!

This wreath has got two front sides, so that it can be turned for an easy change. The front side has got two lines of boys and girls, holding dogs at the ends of the lines, the other front side is a nice wreath of hearts.

Finally home



Finished! Yet the biggest job has not been done... translating the pattern into English - even the Dutch one is still not finished.
The good news is that I am working on it. Just wait and see.

Dutch or English?

This is a Dutch word, it means How. But when the word is finished, it is an English word. With four letters, so it should not be difficult to guess what's next.

The E is a challenging letter to knit, slightly more challenging than the H. But it is also fun.

Just wait and see.

Such a cutie

Have you ever seen such a cutie? And yet so simple to make!

I was lucky to get this picture from someone else, who found it somewhere else, so I don't know where it came from - and I can't read the words printed on the picture.

Never mind, just share it with the rest of the world.

And knit one myself, of course.

HO - HO - HO!

Yes, I know it is not Christmas. But these two letters happen to be the first half of a very nice word.

And I decided to start where it should start - and go on with the next one.

So here we are now. Two beautiful letters.

What's next?

The H

Finally there is some time for the next project: letters. Time to make a switch from thin needles to half a mm more - and what a difference! I think I will choose the 3.5 mm (US 4) needles with matching yarn, I like the light colored letter better.

I was quite happy to learn about the open caston at the Knitty site. I was looking for something like that in order to cast on a whole lot of extra stitches while knitting magic loop and without having to use an extra piece of yarn. I like it best with less possible loose ends.

Well - I'd better go make a proper description!
