Fleece cardigan

A few months after I started hand-spinning, I challenged a knitwear from fleece.


This is clean fleece.

Wash the fleece several times first. but  I repeated several times mistake. Because when washing strongly will result in carpet or a lag ! ( Felting, felt fleece lag ) It necessary to wash gently if we want to produce yarn.

And Hand spinning....., It is fun !
I left the characteristics of fleece. This kind of sheep is curly hair :)


But It is a natural animal, The color of fleece is not all the same.
A little yellow, a little gray mixed in white.

お店で売っているような羊毛は例え自然色といっても似た色を集めて似た色におおまかに染めているそうです。本当の羊は一頭一頭 様々な色が混じっているので、このフリースも同じく真っ白にはならず、黄色や灰色が混ざった白になりました。

And done !

How warm it is !

I got this kind of fleece again this year. I'd like to make yarn and sell it. Yes, my goal this year is to have a small online shop. When my yarn is unsold, I will be able to knit something with them. Whichever it is, I am looking forward to it :)

Hooded jacket of sleeveless

 This is a long process that buying fiber from foreign country and spinning a wool and making a pattern and knitting a jacket. It takes time only, but it is also fun.
 At the same time I gained confidence that Even yarn spun by hand will be finished without problem in size.


It began in September.
Fiber arrived from Dear England.

Knit the back first, and

Knit the front, connect from the neck up

knit a rib on sleeve and hood. I finished knitting in December. 

I also sewed this dress. but This coordination is not cute. I think it goes well with jeans and sweaters.

Little knitting

There were some knitted items in 2017. 今年編んだ小さなアイテムです

It's favorite to knit a hand bag.

This was a request from my mother in law, she was very delighted.
This is my original pattern. I would like to share patterns about bags I have plenty of design ideas but I don't know when it will be.....I am really not good at "written pattern making"


Simple sweater 

Memories about this sweater that I was flu. the fever went down, but only my cough was getting worse.

After 3 weeks I cured perfectly, also my sweater finished knitting :)

I forgot the name of the yarn maker, it was Belgian wool.
I'm wearing it now. I wash several times, and i wear it many times. I searched for the same yarn at the store where I bought this yarn but could not find it. It is pity that I lost tags on the yarn.


The socks knitted only 2 pairs. and little embroidery.

Pattern of Embroidery "Z from A" has just begun. but one year is about to pass. "B does not end yet .


Triangle shawl.

It designed a shawl based from a small diagram of vintage text. It is an image like a wave.
This wool combination is Japanese maker "Hamanaka Mohair" and "Highland wool of Isager" . I like them very very much. I will make the same again.


Crocheted a blanket 
The photo blanket is on its ways, but it has already been completed.
A good point of crochet is maybe rhythmical.
For example, you only have a small triangular pattern, It is so simple that you learn quickly, and you don't need to read any more of pattern, and it becomes a big blanket with many triangle :)


My little helper watched warmly me this year as well.

I wish you a Happy New year !!  皆さま良いお年を~!

Hello friends !
I knit a mitten in previous winter, but I forgot to put here.

This image is leaf and small fruit that I adore. but it is somewhat difficult to look....

The color work of mittens can be knitted with their own ideas, it is very amusing.

I put a French knot stitch for a fruit. This is a very simple embroidery stitch.

Let's spread out your ideas too !

Leaf cardigan

It was February 2017 that I started to knit a cardigan. and It was September when I finished knitting... !! 

At first, knit from top to bottom easily, 


and knit a lace pattern for a front.


We moved to new old house there on the way. ( Half asked the merchant, half renovated ourselves. ) Anyways at that time, I had really little time to knit. 

but Even if you don't have time, you will complete, when you continue..

I knitted them separately and sewed them.

There will also be a way to knit not to knit separately.

and done !

I only write small notes as usual. I don't share a pattern. but there are many similar patterns most beautiful than me, so you will find your favorite cardigan.


This beautiful yarn is Nurturing fibres  super Twist sock yarn.
It is warm, soft and bright yarn. Ideal for knitting socks, but if you adopt a fine lace pattern it will be a special outing knit.
