Self Portrait Tuesday

or 'Woman with socks'

Yes, I'm still knitting. After the Hedera-disaster I discovered that I havn't got any unicoloured sock yarn in spite of this purple one. Socks with Ajour pattern. The first one is already finished.


The Tuesday's Knitting Question - week 22/2006

I hate sewing and I always do it very late. How do xou sew your knitted things. Do you have tips to make it easier?

Until now I only had to sew a few threads. I don't like it that much but I do it directly after finishing because otherwise it would not be really finished.

On Saturday we have been to the Sevens. That's a big shopping mall in Düsseldorf near the 'Kö'. The oval architecture reminds of extraterrestrial starships.

And it was really a battle, a fight for a parking place, for a place in the elevator, usually I do not like these full shops on a Saturday.

In the basement there were some restaurants:

On the top there was something for the gamer:

The small son risked a fight with a great unknown.

And Oz challanged me for a little combat as well. I already mentioned that I am Daisy sometimes. Well, I don't have to say anything:

Mario Smash Football is a fine little game to prepare yourself for the soccer championship next month. But also the return game today was not satisfying for Oz. *hehe* Unfortunately it's not skill but luck, so I must hurry up with being glad - it won' t last long.


Another pair

of baby-socks is finished.

It's enough now. Tomorrow I'm going to send them away.

You see

I have been knitting. Two pairs of baby socks for Tutto:

And I have already started the next pair.
That's not much and I have to confess that the Hedera socks are lying far away from me. They won't dissappear by themselves so I should have the courage to undo them. The yarn does not fit to the pattern at all. Stupid.

And here a tip

for all the desperate jewelery - or whatever - selling mums whose children are regularly destroying the packing material: *plop* *hehe*

Self Portrait Tuesday

Who has been buying shoes for a 12 year old teenie?
We have to point out: buying shoes is always difficult.
But today we were looking for shoes for the schooltrip of my daughter J. next week.
The teacher told us that there would only be forrest and slush and J. said that she would not wear her fantastic new shoes there. So we were looking for cheap shoes for the slush which also had to be pretty.
We went through the whole city and found nothing, not even expensive new shoes.
Then J. had the idea to ask in the shop where we bought the fantastic shoes she is wearing now. We had already been there and had not seen them but perhaps there could be a lonely pair in the stock. I was not convinced but desperate so we tried it.
We asked the shop assistant for the shoes, she shook her head but went into the stock and came back with these shoes. Unbelievable - a bargain.

The desperate mother. (I should work on my handyphototechnique.)

The new shoes.

Now I fear that they will be too fantastic for the slush as well.
But there are still the old shoes of the sister that can be used. Args.

Make your own newspaper.

- that's cool music. A combination of lots of styles, soul, HipHop, funk, really good.

Here the video 'Fightin away the Tears':

Melancholic, nearly Lounge.

But Mocky can also do other things. Oz recently wondered why Mocky was mentioned togehter with Funk. Now I discoverd a download link via Tonspion. *In the Meantime* is a song from the new album. Who likes this stuff should go there and listen, nice, smooth and funky. I really like it. Why didn't he enter the charts yet?

Self Portrait Tuesday

Yesterday evening I met my dear friends A. and A. again. We went to the Trüffel da Diego and had a tasty dinner:

Pasta with salmon. We were placed in the Vinothek and it was very cozy - surrounded by shelves full of vine that we could nocht drink unfortunately. Apart from that, I can't drink much anyway.

Me and A. and A.
The picture is a bit cranky because it was very gloomy.
On the way back I discovered the nice new view of the Hotel Arosa.

That's only in my rememberance because once my father clamped ist finger in the elevator there.


The Tuesday's Knitting Question - week 19/2006

What was your worst knitting disaster?

Och, I have not experienced a real disaster so far.
The last unfinished project was disposed in an attack of consequence.
But I can remember a bad experience. When I tried to knit socks again a few years ago I had forgotten how to knit the heel and I really had to look into the pattern again. And then my little son came along and pulled out the needles. That was frustrating.
And then - last week - a disaster as well.
The last week I was very sad. I had to force myself to do something otherwise I would have been only sitting around staring at the walls. Horrible. And I dicovered that knitting does not help, it's perhaps a bit naive, but it seemed to be completly senseless.

As a compensation for this I will have to go together with Oz to the Korn concert in the 'Grugahalle': See you on the other side.

Today my sockapaloooza socks arrived. I was totally overwhelmed, there were not just socks but all these wonderful things:

Yes, it's right, the fabulous pomatomus socks in a wonderful combination of red and purple. And they fit. Apart from that beautiful sock yarn, funny greeting cards especially fot the knitter, a little bag (I think it's also selfmade), Girl-Scout-cakes (Jenn, how did you know, I used to be a scout as a child!) and a little wooden sheep. Even on the greeting-card there is a pattern for a poncho - a funny idea.
Do you want to know from whom I received all that stuff? A crazy person named Jenn.

Dear Jenn, manymany thanks for all these wonderful things. It's too much (but I take it willingly :)) ) and I'm really happy. Thank you!
