Life happens

Where oh where to start.....

Well, since the last post was about Rudi, let's continue with my after-Valentine's Day rug hooking project!
Once there was a little heart, which was hooked for a little girl...

The little heart was made just after Valentine's Day and the little girl loves it very much, because she collects hearts. She put it right on the little cabinet, where she keeps all her other little hearts.

Not the end!
I made another heart, this time a small mat measuring about 7 x 7 inches. I added a little bit of mohair and sparkle, but still - not my typical colors, can you tell? I think it turned out great!

My teacher-guru Cathy named it heart of my hearts.
The little loveliness will travel with us to Germany in May. A perfect little Mother's Day present for Oma!

As you may remember, I have been teaching some knitting classes. One of them for this lacy shrug made of Be Sweet bamboo:

Gorgeous, right? - No, I am not just talking about the shrug. Lisa is my favorite model, she is fabulous!

Another class coming up is for this ballet wrap, but finally ladies' size! It is not quite finished, but it will look just like this! It is knitted from softest alpaca silk and I cannot wait to wear mine!

If you are in Albuquerque and you are interested in this class get in touch with me! There will be two sessions of at least 2 1/2 hours on Tuesdays, May 8th (11.30) and 22nd (11.00) at the Yarn Store at Nob Hill.

Happy knitting and happy spring!


  1. great hearts - I especially like the 'heart of my hearts'! :-)

  2. Dag,
    I really really love the "heart of my hearts"! Love how you used the textures and directional hooking! Genius!!

  3. Hola Dag,
    so schöne Herzen. Meike sammelt Herzen, sie bekommt seit einigen Jahren oft einen Fotoherzkalender von mir, mit Herzen die ich auf Fotos bannen kann.
    Hug Doris

  4. Lovely ballet wrap! I'm a new knitter and just found your blog via Hip Stitch - are you going to be offering a children's ballet wrap class again? I'd love to come!
