On my needles

Hello my lovely readers,

It's so humid here in my part of the world.
We have had rain and thunderstorms in the past weeks.
This weather makes me very tired!
I hope of cooler weather.

I'm still working

  on my summer blanket.

I have begun a new blanket.
I will use all my leftovers yarn from different
projects from the past years.

A knitting jumper for me.
I use my lovely Alpacca Yarn from Drops.

Another shawl in pale green.
I use silkwool for the shawl
slowly grows row for row.

What have you on your needle?

Have a nice day,


  1. I so admire your lovely knitting and crochet, Regina! All the items are beautiful!
    Have a wonderful week!

  2. You've been working hard and what a lovely summer crochet blanket:) At the moment, I'm also working on two identical crochet winter lap blankets for my two girls...using up all the assorted leftover won't be as big as yours but with similar granny squares design:) I also admire your knitting skill...I'm envious because I can't knit as good as you:(

    I'm sure all these strange summer T-storm we're having this year will only be for a short season.. Wishing some nice cooler summer's days ahead:)

  3. I think that we have similar weather over here in England. I hope that you get some nice cool knitting weather soon. You have so many lovely projects on the go at once.
    Happy Knitting.

  4. Lovely greys and cool shades of green for your jumper and shawl, love them.

  5. Da hast du ja toll was zu tun und kannst immer, je nach Lust und Laune, dir aussuchen woran du grad arbeiten willst. Die kunterbunte Decke gefällt mir gut, so was hätt ich auch auf meiner Liste für den Garten, wenn wieder die kühleren Abende anfangen und man aber gern noch ein bißerl draußen sitzen mag. Und ein neues kuschliges Jäckchen für den Herbst wär auch was Schönes.
    Viel Spaß mit deinen Handarbeiten,
    mit liebem Gruß,

  6. Hi Regina,
    that looks wonderful. I love the colours of the blanket and the jumper looks so great with the cable. Lovely shawl too.
    I am still working on my cardigan with the leftover yarn ; ) Bit by bit, so my hands can handle it ; ) Have a great day.

  7. your blankets are lovely!! And I'm in awe of the knitting, it looks so lovely both look so soft and comfy :) liebe gruesse :)

  8. Your blanket looks very nice! My daughter has tried several times to learn how to make granny squares. Maybe they are just more difficult for left handed people. Your shawl and jumper are great too! My husband picked out yarn on Thursday, and I am going to attempt to knit him a hat on a round knitting loom. I hope you have a great weekend!

  9. All so lovely! Especially love the shawl. I'm not knitting anything right now. For some reason I can't get into the rhythm of it in the summer.

  10. I'm not good at knitting and crocheting... your craft is amazing!

  11. You must be a wonderful knitter! About all I do anymore are dishcloths. At one time I could do a little harder things. I want to learn to crochet now. Can do the simple stitches but I can't put them together in reading a pattern. Nancy

  12. All your knitting and crochet projects are lovely. I like the Drops Alpaca yarn too.
