WIP Wednesday - some knitting and some embroidery

Good morning! I finally managed to take some pictures this wednesday so I can actually show a couple of things I'm working on (or should be working on) .
First there is this little experiment. On a whim I needle felted some scrap wool roving to a piece of scrap wool felt to try embroidering over it. From there everything just came together as I was working on it, without having a clear image in my head. It's really wonderful when that happens.
I would love to finish it. I just need to find the time for a little more stitching.


Goedemorgen! Eindelijk heb ik eens wat foto's gemaakt zodat ik wat kan laten zien op deze WIP-woensdag.
Ten eerste dit kleine experimentje. Het is een restje wolvilt met daaroverheen wat restjes wol genaaldvilt, en daaroverheen weer geborduurd. Het ontstond terwijl ik ermee bezig was, zonder dat ik een duidelijk plan voor ogen had. Heerlijk is dat.
Ik zou het erg graag afmaken; nu alleen de tijd vinden voor nog wat steekjes.

Second is this Baktus scarf (the pattern is super simple and can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/norwayneedles/2963651011/). I started knitting it in the fall, because for once I thought I'd knit myself a scarf before I actually needed it. The knitting was done in less than a week, but since I used scrap yarn there is a gazillion ends to weave in. So that's where I left it... all winter.


Dan deze Baktus sjaal (het patroon in supermakkelijk en staat hier: (http://www.flickr.com/photos/norwayneedles/2963651011/). Ik begon met breien in de herfst, zodat ik eindelijk eens een sjaal af zou hebben voordat ik hem daadwerkelijk nodig had. Ik was klaar met breien in minder dan een week, maar omdat ik restjes gebruikte zijn er een triljoen eindjes weg te werken. Dus daar ben ik gebleven... de hele winter.

  2. That is the first Baktus I've really liked. It's much more fun in scrap yarn! And I'm in to scrap yarn these days.
    I love the embroidery. I haven't done needle-felting ... yet.
    I'm so glad you found my blog. And I'm so jealous that you live in the Netherlands. I'm trying to talk my husband into a biking trip in your country. I love Amsterdam and am dying to visit Ghent and Antwerp!

    1. Thanks. There is a bit of cheating going on though, because the yarns I used are self-patterning.
