Hello you all!
First: Welcome to our new followers on Bloglovin and Google+! Good to see you here!
I wish I could tell you about a finished project but I can't. However, I can tell you about lots of WIPs... One can never have too many WIPs, can't one? Earlier this week I hoped to finish one of the WIPs but well, here we are: Friday and my cowl is still a WIP. I have been incredible tired and thus couldn't put in as much crochet time as I hoped for. Sighs.
My current crochet WIP is this neck warmer cowl from Drops Design:

As you can see, I am about 78 % done. I use Drops Cotton Merino instead of the Alpaca yarn. Why? I adore the cotton merino yarn. It certainly is my favorite yarn. :-) Do you have a favorite yarn too?
I am also working on Christmas presents. I can't show you pictures yet as some of the recipients might read this post. I can tell you however that it involves something to eat and glass jars. Any ideas what it might be?
Some days ago a whole bunch of old city maps were to be tossed out at my work. After all there are very few people who still use paper maps and those maps weren't exactly young either. So I saved them from tossing and took them home. Boy, they will keep me busy for some time. One map of Paderborn and Wuppertal each I used up to make paper lucky stars. In order to to this, I cut the maps into 20cm long stripes. I like how they look - now I only need to figure out what to do with them. Any ideas from you by any chance? I am happy about any kind of advice.
My other WIP is crochet related again. Do you know this wonderful Sunday Shawl from Alia/Little Bee yet?

It is a fantastic pattern and I can't wait to make a shawl for myself! At the moment however I am translating the pattern into German for Alia. Apparently a lot of people ask for a German version and I am very happy to help her out. Fortunatly Andrea from Kokopelli Design will proofread the German version. I am very happy that Alia trusts me with her wonderful pattern! Once finished you will be able to purchase the German version in her shop. :-)
What are you up to these days? I hope you have lots of yarn to keep you happy!
