Hello friends… today I would like to start my posting off with something I feel like I want to talk about.
Yesterday an Anonymous reader left me a comment which was rather hurtful for me to read. When I read the comments left they all make me feel soo good and I feel the love that you all spread… but I admit… in those 4 –5 years I am blogging I did read on my blog and on others blogging ladies some not so nice things. On my blog I try to leave it and not remove them because I believe– this is what people think and they should be able to express themselves and I need to accept not only positive but negative feedback as well and learn from it and get better. I just don’t get into it the next day and try to get over it.
However I would like to address this… the lady who left a comment was rude and quite annoyed by the way I write my postings because my English is not good. Here is the thing… I could much rather accept criticism for my work than for the way I try to do the write ups on my blog. I try really hard to get the words out correctly in the English language when my native one is actually German and don’t get me wrong.. I absolutely do not think I speak or write well in English. Nobody taught me English, I learned it by watching TV and obviously I live in the states for quite a while now. At a certain point when you have reached a level of your ability to express yourself nobody corrects you anymore in your daily life and that’s obviously where you stop learning. Now, should I consider taking a English class to be better? Maybe! But also I just could start to write my blog postings in German and add to the sidebar of the blog a Google Translator. It would be definitely much easier for me and also so much faster. I wonder how this would work out?! I will consider this option to add this gadget to my blog in the next few days and go from there.
Anyways.. I would like to close this chapter to show you some photos of my recent knits
Pattern: Clockwork by Stephen West
Yarn: Madeline Tosh Merino light in Charcoal and Winter Wheat
Needle Addi Lace: 4mm
Time for a daybreak!
pretty big and perfect to wrap yourself if you go on a walk or in summer to wrap over your shoulders
Pattern: Daybreak by Stephen West
Yarn: Madeline tosh Merino light in Ink and Caravan
This is the biggest wrap I have knitted so far. It is feather light and beautiful. Knitting took quite a while but it is mindless just some seed stitch borders and stockinette. I will definitely make one for myself. This one is going to my mother. I hope she will like the neutral light grey color and I hope she will wrap herself into it when she is sitting with my stepfather on the balcony in summer
Pattern: Nae – Ravlery – for free – super easy
Yarn: 2 skeins of Madeline tosh Merino light in silver fox
This one I have made for a very sweet person who is always generous to me. Sending this off to the UK.
The style of this is more modern due to the asymmetric shaping. Its not as thick so its going to be a nice accessory for Spring.
Pattern: Martina Behm “Trillian” (Pattern available in English and German)
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock yarn in Solis
