This far I had knitted when I found out that I had twisted the border ....
100 Gramm = 420 Meter ribbeln sich echt schneller, als sie zu stricken :)!
On both sides of the middle I had produced a complete turn in the border - this can be only cured by frogging ...
100 grams = 420 meters, they really frog faster than they are knitted :)!
When I knit this again, I have the chance to verify 3 pages of notes ...

The test knit of my new shawl is in progress - when not two pretty puppies have conquered the shawl :(!
Katharina, the fastest knitter I know, is already knitting the border.
Petra showed my her test knit in progress last Sunday, on our Stricktreff. I love the color combination!
Dornröschen-Wolle - das wird klasse!
Ines shows two beautiful hand dyed yarns by Dornröschen Wolle - this will become stunning!
Silke has chosen two industrially dyed colors of Lanartus super soft 4ply sock yarn, a wonderful color combination. Her knitting has grown a lot since I got the picture, but I forgot to ask her for a new one :)!
Alle meine Lieben haben schon eine ganze Reihe Fehler in der Anleitung gefunden, DANKE!!!!!!
Wenn sie fertig sind und alle Korrekturen eingearbeitet, kann ich dann die Anleitung übersetzen - beim aktuellen richtigen Sommerwetter habe ich aber zugegeben wenig Lust, den ganzen Tag am Computer zu sitzen, und das mehrere Tage hintereinander ....
They all have found a couple of mistakes in the pattern yet, THANK YOU!!!!!
When they have finished knitting, I can make all corrections, and then I can translate the pattern. But during the few real summer days I am not too fond of sitting inside at the computer, for a few days in a row ...
On Sunday, we could take some beautiful photos of my finished Sun Teaser!

That was a great Sunday with wonderful people and beautiful knits - THANK YOU, girls!
Atelier Alfa. Die Anleitung ist noch nicht online erhältlich.
Angelika's mistery knit of last Stricktreff is finished . the test knit of the shawl "nothing but Stripes" by Atelier Alfa. The pattern isn't available yet.
Die Anleitung Morgenfryd von Filcolana ist ein kostenloser Ravelry-Download.
Brigitta has finished her very first lace shawl - and it has become awesome!
The pattern Morgenfryd by Filcolana is a free Ravelry download.
Sie strickt daraus ein anderes tolles Modell von Atelier Alfa, den Pullover "to be continued".
That's the beautiful yarn that ANgelika just knits - in a different colorway.
She is knitting another great design by Atelier Alfa, the pullover "to be continued".
This design has a wonderful solution for a bottom edge in stockinette stitch that does not roll in - and Angelika has finished the bottom edge during our Stricktreff!
Pamuya Tuch von Alexandra Wiedmayer.
That's Brigitta's actual knit - the Pamuya shawl by Alexandra Wiedmayer.
We had great fun - and this happens when you call "Please smile" before taking a photo :)!
"Don't you dare to show this photo on your blog!" ggg
Both proudly present two beautiful shawls knitted by Angelika, and Angelika gave those beauties as a present to them!
Petra has sewn this pretty shirt herself - Chapeau!
Steintore" Tuch nach der Anleitung von Petra Neumann, jetzt ganz fertig und gespannt.
Petra's original "Steintore" shawl by Petra Neumann, now completely finished and blocked.
The pattern leaves a lot of space for your own creativity - this is Petra's genial interpretation!
Was Petra und Ines gerade stricken, zeig ich euch morgen - beide machen nämlich den Teststrick für meinen Sun Teaser!
What Petra and Ines are just knitting, I'll show you tomorrow - both are test knitters for my Sun Teaser!

When I am lucky and faster than the birds, I'll get a lot of grapes this year!
The flowers get pollinated very exclusively here :)!
Yesterday's working place: This is what it looks like when I try something new.
A swatch of nearly 100 stitches, after the x-th frogging
Yessssss! That's the way I wanted it to get! Now I "just" have to transfer it to the large piece of knitting :)!
And now we'll go outside and enjoy summer!

Das sollte EIGENTLICH mein nächstes Projekt werden, die Wolle dazu habe ich hier ....
Renate has knitted this awesome vest with elements of my Diamonds and Waves Shawl. She gave me all her notes, THANK YOU!!!!
This should have become my next project, the yarn for it I already have ...
Yesterday I puzzled all day how to make this a pattern instruction for different sizes .... and sorry, I did not find a way. To write a pattern for different sizes, I would have to construct, calculate, at least knit twice and then write every size completely as a single instruction. I am very sorry, but Renate's genial vest will stay a stunning unique piece without a pattern instruction!
Und ich habe jetzt die Qual der Wahl, was ich als nächstes angehe :)!
And now I am spoilt for choice what to knit next :)!
These two, they want to become a cardigan?
Or these two for a poncho?
Or continue my Body & Soul dress with these two?
Or continue with my Swingy Hitchhiker?
(Da waren mein Reihe für Reihe Mitgeschriebenes verschwunden, als ich das erste halb fertige Tuch für eine Show verliehen hatte, und das zweite Mitgeschriebene hat Linda samt Büchlein geschreddert ...)
Or take these two fluffy beauties by Moni's Farbenwahn and finally write the pattern for the Polaris shawl?
(I took row by row notes that were lost when I lent the half finished show for a show. My second set of row by row notes Linda shredded including the booklet ...)
Decisions can be very hard sometimes :)!!!!!!
