Bevenser Gestrick 2 - Knitted in Bevensen 2
The second Swingeling shawl has been finished during my vacations as well - made of Lanartus Fine Merino Art combined with Lanartus Alpaca Sport. It has been real fun to test knit my own pattern with these fine and soft yarns!
Die Korrekturen der deutschen Anleitung sind fertig - ich sitze jetzt an der Übersetzung - noch 6200 Wörter ...
Swingeling ist ein Projekt, das ich zusammen mit Lanartus mache - die Anleitung wird am Mittwoch, dem 25.03. online gehen, in Deutsch und Englisch, und sie wird während der h&h in Köln, der internationalen Fachmesse für Handarbeiten, kostenfrei sein!
Mehr dazu erfahrt ihr am Wochenende, wenn Bernd Pottschull von Lanartus aus Österreich zurück ist!

Swingeling is a project I planned to gether with Lanartus - the pattern will go online on Wdnesday March 25, in German and English, and it will be free during the h&h Cologne, the international trade show for handicrafts!
We will tell you more about it when Bernd Pottschull of Lanartus is back from his trip through Austria this weekend!
Swingeling involves elements of Swing-Knitting, but also has row-by-row descriptions - every knitting technique that might not be known by everyone, is explained in detail in the technical appendix with step photos, so that every advanced beginner knitter will be able to knit this shawl!
Every single element is explained in detail - for those who already know Swing-Knitting, each element has a brief summary.
The shawl is finished with a funny crocheted fringe - und you can see how much sun my Swingeling has got!
Here it is just drying after the relaxing bath - on my balcony at the hotel :)!
Which materials you will need for both Swingeling shawls, you will get to know during this weekend - as soon as Bernd and I have made it up!
I hope to get some nice photos of the shawls on Sunday, when the ladies of my Stricktreff are here and can wear them - please keep your fingers crossed that the weather will be fine!
