1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Owls in Iceland on: December 02, 2016 06:26:03 AM
I'm not in Iceland, but I feel like I could be with this sweater made out of icelandic wool. When I biked seven kilometers in german December weather, I was so hot, I had to take off my jacket. First real sweater, only made one wearable cardigan before ad love this one, even though its a little (ok, a lot) snug. And I love that this is organic wool.

Pattern is Owls by Kate Davies

Thank you so much. Helped me understand my owl sweater, too. Never thought cables would be that easy.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another sashiko mended jeans on: November 13, 2016 05:56:02 AM
Did I mention I only had one pair of jeans without holes or that was mended? The last one with holes got some stars on it.

Conversation between me an a ten-year-old student

Student: You have holes in your jeans!
Me: I know.
Student: So why are you still wearing them?
Me: ...

prompted me to copy said favourite jeans and mend the original pair, because, really, they still are my favourite jeans even when hardly holding together in the - ehm- rear area. But she was partly right, I don't need students to see my behind through said holes.

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Stress ball prototype for school on: October 28, 2016 03:06:54 PM
My colleage wants our class to have stress balls to get them to concentrate better. As we were researching, I noticed none of the sellers stated what their product was made of. AND a lot of them came from China. So. I don't want to poison my kids and I don't want to order from China. The eco ones I found are wonderful (http://www.kreativ-fabrik.com/produkte/shop/kosmetik-und-wellness/282/natuerlicher-anti-stress-ball) but too expensive to buy on school money. I really like the fact they put nice smelling herbs in it!

So I made one for the kids to try out. I found a pattern online (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ZeFI7cOzC-o/ULhHD65GzHI/AAAAAAAAAsc/gP_pUCi4t4Y/s1600/Ho+Ho+Hoboken+Seam+Patter+Step+5.png) and cut up an old sweater- well, it was already cut up. Filling made of jersey bits. Left out the herbs so as not to tempt the children to make scrunchy noises all the time (the noises they come up with!!! Really!!!)

Tada:

Hey steiconi!

The words on the banners are tasks to be done, like watering the flowers (you're totally correct with "Blumen" - it means flower in german, too!). Another is cleaning the blackboard and so on. The kid's names are on the pegs, so they can rotate every week or so. Usually, these are done on paper and then laminated- but I want to cut out plastic.

School year is starting this week, and I will have my very fist own 5th grade. To get them organized, I made this:





Except for the pegs I didn't have to buy anything and didn't have to laminate anything. Plastic avoided!

It's amazing how small this thing is and how detailed you made it! Wow! And, as a bonus, I don't know what it is so won't have any nightmares :-)
