Sorry, for not having posted for some time. I have been very busy with 'real' life, but in the end everything turned out just fine and here I am back posting my latest little projects.
I have tried my hand on some knitted wintery accessories that I saw in a German magazine called 'CUT'. The first one is my favorite. It is a flower brooch and was very, very easy to make. I just needed some knitted strings. Then I rolled them to be flowers and hand sew them on a feltbase combined with a safety pin.
The second accessory is this bracelet.
I used the same knitted strings as for the brooch.
This is made by braiding four strings and connect both ends.
And last but not least the most easiest of all three is this necklace with 3 knitted strings in different length.
Somehow I do love this red and white color combination. It is wintery and has a christmas holiday touch.
Maybe I will try to make more accessories like these, as I still have some of this wool left.
So you might wonder how I made those strings? In German this tool you see on the last picture is called 'Strickliesel'. 'Strick' means 'knitting' and 'liesel' is an old German name for a girl. Can anybody tell me what this is called in English? I wonder if this tool is known all around the world?
People told me that many Germans used to play with it in their childhood. Well, I am a little late having found out about this 'Strickliesel' just about a month ago! ;)
