Spirals of running stitches and when I broke out of the rythm
I saw that two birds appeared. I call this now paradise birds.
I might still add eyes so they could emerge from the running stitch jungle
I dyed the white fabric with silk paints for lack of my
ProcionX dyes - they were 300 km away - I made it in
the French house.
Pulled threads in this very thin gauze - before I cut it
away on the bords I surrounded it with chain stitches
and barred chain stitches.

And it is finished - my cardigan - and oh oh oh - the buttonholes are
on the wrong side. I can live with that (television watching).
The neckline rather wide -
not just the thing you need in winter in an old cold house.
The sleeves ----
The pattern came from "Die Farben des Nordens" by Jutta Bücker

Complicated, if you folllow it exactly with a
meticulous description. Rather confusing for me -
you can't watch TV while knitting - and
I had to add 5 cm for the sleeves.
But the result is ok.
And a complete photo will come soon.
