Sonntagmorgen/Sunday Morning


Ich genieße meine Häkelzeit am Sonntagmorgen. Eine Tasse Kaffee und das Tuch für meine Mama fertigmachen. Einen schönen 2. Advent wünsche ich euch.

I enjoy my rochet time on Sunday morning! A cup of coffee and finishing the shawl for my Mom. :) A happy 2nd of Advent to you.

Crochet Between Worlds Advent Meditation - Part 1 Take 2


Nur noch zweimal schlafen bis zur nächsten Crochet Between Worlds Advent Meditation. Ich konnte nicht widerstehen und habe nach dem ersten Podcast noch einen Untersetzer gehäkelt.

Two more sleeps until part 2 of the Crochet Between Worlds Advent Meditation. I couldn't resist and made a second coaster from the first podcast.

The Plane Trip Scarf: A pattern test for Zooty Owl

I had the honor to test Zooty Owl's new pattern - The Plane Trip Scarf. I used one of the new Stylecraft Batik Swirl Cakes (Purple Mist) and the colors don't show very well in this grey German winter weather. They are several shades of light and dark grey and a really nice shade of purple, all with that "batik" touch. I would have loved to go out to the park or the historic city center and take some nice photos of the shawl for you, but nope. Raining and snowing. I made the scarf a wee bit longer than in the pattern (170 cm/67") and also used the same yarn to make the border (one of three Options included in the pattern), so the cake will not be enough for a second scarf. I also didn't add flowers (three flower patterns are also part of the pattern), as the scarf is for a girl, who is into heavy metal/gothic music. So nothing too fancy. I hope you like my version of the scarf. Pattern can be found here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/plane-trip-scarf

 
The pattern is very easy and relaxing to make, so it might be the perfect last minute gift. I finished mine in three days. There are lots of options for yarn, length, borders and embelishment, so you can personalize it and make your very own Plane Trip Scarf.

Crochet Between Worlds Advent Meditation - Part 1

I joined the Crochet Between Worlds Advent Meditation and this is the outcome of part 1 - a coaster, the first of a set of 4! Not perfect, but it was a whole new experience not to follow a written pattern or a graph, but only liste to spoken words and crochet what is said.

Attic 24 Weekend Bag!

Meine Nichte hat bald Geburtstag und ich habe eine Tasche für sie gehäkelt. Ich habe das Grundmuster der Attic 24 Weekend Bag verwendet und ein bißchen nach meinen Vorstellungen angepasst. Das Garn waren die Überbleibsel der Gorgeous Granny Bag, die ich vor einigen Monaten für mich selbst gehäkelt habe. Ich hoffe, die Tasche gefällt ihr.

My niece's birthday is at the end of December and I crocheted a bag for her. I basically used the pattern for the Attic 24 Weekend Bag and made some adjustments to it, concerning the handle, the closure and the flower embellishment. I used leftover yarn from my Gorgeous Granny Bag, which Im made for me some months ago. I hope she likes the bag.

What's up?

Ja, was ist los hier bei Kokopelli Design? Weihnachten und die Adventszeit davor sind ja immer eine eher hektische Zeit für den Selbermacher. Und so sieht's hier auch aus. Manche Geschenke sind schon fertig, manche kurz davor und manche sind noch nicht mal angefangen. Dazwischen Kekse backen, dekorieren, Wildvögel mit Futter versorgen etc. etc etc. ;)

Yes, what's up on Kokopelli Design? Christmas and Advent time before are always a busy time for every DIY girl. And that's the fact here, too. Some gifts are finished, some are WIPs and some are not even started. In between there is cookie making, decorating, feeding the wild birds etc. etc. etc.


Das ist die Attic 24 Weekend Bag, ein Geburtstagsgeschenk für meine Nichte, allerdings noch nicht fertig.

That's the Attic 24 Weekend Bag in progress, a birthday gift for my sweet redhead niece.


Mein Norwegerpulli hat den Zustand einer Maschenprobe nun weit hinter sich gelassen und steht kurz vor Beginn der Ärmel.

My Nordic sweater has left thestate of a gauge swatch and I'm about to begin the sleeves.


Vergesst nicht, morgen bei Crochet Between Worlds reinzuschauen, denn dann beginnt die Advent Meditation, ein tolles Häkelprojekt zur Adventszeit.

Don't forget to visit Crochet Between Worlds tomorrow, when the Advent Meditation
begins, an innovative crochet project for advent.

Wie man Quasten macht/How to tie a tassel

Ein paar Quasten für die fertigen Snowdrop Shawls sind auch angebracht. Ich hätte wohl Garn vom Anfang nehmen sollen, dann wären sie weniger lockig geworden. ;)

I made some tassels to add as a finishing touch to my Snowdrop Shawls. Maybe I should have taken them from the beginning of the yarn cake, so they would be less curly. ;)
