EIGENTLICH wollte ich ja spätestens gestern damit fertig sein ...
That's quite a lot of fabric to knit, the Sonata II skirt in size XL :)
My plan was to have finished it by yesterday ...
That was its state when we had the last sunshine - the last pattern repeat is 3/4 finished, I am sure this would make a great wrap as well :)!
Lungauer Sockenwolle 6fach von Ferner, in den beiden neuen Grautönen.
Das Spannende dabei ist, dass der dunkelste Ton des hellen Grautons genau dem hellsten Ton des dunklen Grautons entspricht - das ergibt spannende Effekte beim Swing-Stricken!
The yarn is wonderful:
Lungauer Sockenwolle 6ply by Ferner, the two new grey shades.
It is exciting to knit because the darkest shade of the light grey is exactls the lightest shade of the dark grey - thrilling effects when you swing-knit!
The seam is closed by using Kitchener Stitch - where the pin is the seam is drafted invisibly.
The waist is finished - now you can see that this will become a skirt!
And this is how to present a size XL skirt on a size S doll :)!
The third pin-tuck of the bottom edge is nearly finished - and I wil hurry to finish it now!
My two Siamese babies use the actual sh** weather for a thorough mutual full bath!
