For the second time I'm participating in Ginny's Yarn Along and I hope to do so many more Wednesdays to come! There's so much inspiration to find, it's quite overwhelming at times =) (Please click on the picture to see it larger!)
Although Seb's anklets are not finished yet I want to show you a different project today. I pulled my Copper Bolero out of hibernation a while ago because I really want to wear it this summer. But due to the extremely slow progress I'm beginning to doubt that this will be happening. The yarn (a cotton / microfiber blend) is very difficult to knit with, it's so slippery but somehow also very tight once the stitches are on the needle. It's hard to explain, quite paradoxical really. But slowly or not, progress is being made. A few more rows and the back will be finished. Sadly I once again failed to capture the colour properly in a picture. It's not really orange, more like a vivid and shiny copper. Very beautiful but truly a yarn from hell. This is the third attempt at making something recognisable out of this yarn and I'm happy that the diamond lace pattern works well.
I finished the first book of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon shortly after my first Yarn Along and I'm now reading the second book "Dragonfly in Amber". The German title is "Die geliehene Zeit" - "Borrowed Time". Funny how the titles are often so different from one another ^^
