The scarf

It is finished the scarf which I began first with another pattern
but saw that I won‘t be able to finish it to be recognized
as a scarf



and now this is Frau Mayer wearing it - a model once 
published in the magazine Brigitte, long long ago
when DH still made such things - today his objects are
larger, house renovation etc.




the sarf is for me


an intricate pattern - I was not able to form a scarf with



unravelling


washing and drying


and looking for another pattern
(see at the bottom of the page)



no fast knitting but I had the time during holidays
and summer heat when quiet sitting was the best 


Photo below:

It is the same wool under electric light - I knitted a cord 
to make the neck a bit more attractive -

knitting with two needles and 5 stitches - no turning
just pushing the knitted stitches to the beginnning and
go again from right to left 



the excess length ended in a knitted ball - I could make a snake‘s 
head of it - 



Frau Mayer and the scarf
the pattern

Scarf not finished



This intricate feather pattern - 
well it is looking a bit funny - like a collar around the neck
So I will add a knitted little sausage - fixed by sewing or 
crocheted - no decision yet made - 
cold days are still far


Crochet pattern - ananas? - for a better image I will have to 
block it.

Still August - an update


Postman brought this to me from Canada - Susan Cuss painted it
and I was gifted with it - thank you so much for this wonderful surprise



Back in Schwarzwald we started to explore fortified castles
near our town Altensteig-Berneck.

This one is Hohennagold


situated high above the town Nagold
and oh, I love towers and embellished this fairytale book
a few years ago with Karen Ruane




I was looking for the window on top - and for Rapunzel -
but neither - nor!
Just the entrance on the ground





Old walls





gateways


and towers






and a stone ball sculpture





I climbed the stairs and



and looked down on DH










- - - - - - - - - - -
Then another day

A walk with friends



through the woods 

marvelling at mushrooms - not collecting them










Back in the basis camp



hedge overgrown by pumpkin plants



our winterstock of Hokkaidos
same procedure as every year - already known to my readers.
