Keerpash Scarf - a new scarf knitting pattern

Friday, November 26, 2010

İ am pretty busy nowadays. Same time İ am knitting and writing the instructions for a new knitting pattern: Keerpash Scarf. Dont't ask how on earth İ chose this name for this pattern... İt's the nickname of a friend of mine and it means small hedgehog in Turkish.

İ took a pic with for this W.İ.P. (work in progress in knitter's language :) ... ) But İ am still waiting for a less cloudy day to take a better picture in order to show the lovely texture of this stitch pattern which somehow resembles the falling of last leaves late in autumn.

My gauge was 17 sts x 23 rows for 4'' / 10 cm in Stockinette stitch with US 8 / 5.00 mm knitting needles.

Even the pattern stitch looks complicated, it is actually pretty easy. İt only requires knit, purl, yarn over, k2tog, skp and centered double decrease stitches.

İ am using a lovely yarn from Fibra Natura, Sensational Superwash 100 % Merino wool. İ love this yarn. İ am in awe. Each skein has 50 grams and İ guess 2 skeins will be enough for this project. My scarf has 5 '' width. İ will include, as usual, instructions for a wider scarf. Always be aware that a wider scarf means more yarn!

it's cold

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

İt's so cold outside. İt's a cold November day. A wet cold November day. İ wish İ could drink a hot chocolate. İ ran off of it but it is so cold, İ won't go out just for it. İ prefer to stay curled up in sofa bed covered with a thick wool blanket. Sometimes it raines then it stops. İ watch TV but actually the TV is only turned on...The noise from TV makes me sleep and then İ start to dream that İ am on holiday with lots of friends, my former classmates from highschool...

İt is such a long way till next Spring...

birthday week

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

This week it is my birthday. Last year İ celebrated it with my relatives: İ made so many sweets and pastries, and it was great to have all of them beside me on that day. This year it will be different. So different. Cause everything is changed. İ was just  thinking of that, wow, during one year how many things changed. Things, situations, ciircumstances. İf İ draw the line, if İ could only draw the line...and make the total....but now İ feel to tired. This week İ can be tired cause it is my birthday week.

Back to knitting. İ have started a new project: a realtive asked me for a neck warmer. İn Constanta-Romania winters are pretty harsh, the weather has no mercy so İ decided for a 100% wool yarn that would keep my relatative warm. Soon İ will post pictures with this new project: a scarf with a very easy to memorize textured pattern. İ choose a dark red, a kind of raspberry red, for a dark taned person. Pics to be posted soon :)

Translation into Swedish for Ameeta Scarf knitting pattern

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Thanks to a great friend, the Ameeta Scarf knitting pattern is available into Swedish language too. Carola was so kind that she translated the  pattern from English to Swedish.

This knitting pattern is easy to knit. The pattern stitch is easy to remember too, it requires only knit and purl stitches and it produces a very textured fabric which is reversible too. The scarf is unisex, it can be worn by men and women too, it only depends on the color scheme.

Home made Turkish pizza with mushrooms and ceddar cheese. Kaşarlı mantarlı Pide

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

mantarlı kaşarlı pide, mantarli kasarli pide, Turkish pizza with mushrooms and cedar cheese
İt has been snowing since yesterday. İ am stuck at home. The wind makes almost impossible going out. Whenever İ look through the window İ feel so cold: there is so much snow everywhere. The roads are covered with snow and İ barely see people walking outside. İ thought that the smell of something baked in the oven would change this cold air at home. İ found a recipe on internet for a home made traditional Turkish pizza with mushrooms and cedar cheese (mantarlı kaşarlı pide). İ am pretty brave when it comes to try new recipe especially from internet and without even any single comment or review. But this project was a real success and İ like so much the smell of pizza while it is baking in the oven.  My parents enjoyed an unusual lunch. İt was for the first time when they had Turkish pizza. İ also prepared ayran (yoghurt mixed with water, another traditional Turkish drink. Actually the mixture of yoghurt and water is beaten well until it gets foamy).

Now İ should return to my knitting project: a sweater for my friend in Ankara. Somehow it is my first big project, until now İ just worked on small projects like vests, tops, tunics or tanks, scarves and hats, and many bags İ can say. İ will post soon pictures with my work in progress.
