Die Hitchhiker-Kollektion - 20 Tücher zum Stricken von Martina Behm
This is the german version of the book!Nur bei uns im Strickmich! Shop: Wer eine Widmung von Martina Behm wünscht, kann dies gern bei der Bestellung im Feld "Kommentar" angeben (die Lieferung verzögert sich dadurch evtl. um 1-2 Tage). Gern auch den Text der Widmung ins Feld "Kommentar" eintragen. Der „Hitchhiker“ ist eine der erfolgreichsten Strickanleitungen weltweit – allein auf der Plattform Ravelry.com wurden über 32 000 Projekte danach gestrickt! Die innovative, schräg gestrickte, längliche Form ist nicht umsonst seit 10 Jahren so beliebt: Handgefärbte, bunte Garne sehen damit besonders gut aus, und ein einzelner Strang reicht aus, um ein tragbares Ergebnis zu bekommen. Viele haben sich von dieser Form inspirieren lassen, und die Erfinderin des Hitchhikers selbst natürlich auch: In „Die Hitchhiker-Kollektion“ zeigt Strickdesignerin Martina Behm, wie kreativ sie mit dieser Grundform umgeht. Kringelkanten, Zacken- und Lochmuster, Rüschen und interessante Strukturen machen sich gut in der Hitchhiker-Form. Diese Kollektion bietet 20 Projekte für jedes Niveau – von der Anfängerin bis zur fortgeschrittenen Strickerin. Drei davon sind neu und nur in diesem Buch enthalten.In diesem Buch finden sich 17 bekannte und 3 neue Modelle von Martina Behm:Hitchhiker TrillianMagratheaLintillaBricklessNaiadaKnit Your LoveSamadhiLeftieJasmindeHeaven & SpaceBaltic SummerBuds & BumblesKnitters´ DNAMiss WinkleHalleyTivoli GardensHope & Confidence NeuBunny & Claire NeuTreehiker Neu

Hitchhiker Beyond
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Hey, is that a Hitchhiker? No wait, something is different... There are teeth all around your neck! And many more than 42! And it’s symmetric! How did you do that? Simple: This is not a Hitchhiker, but a Hitchhiker from a parallel universe – it’s a Hitchhiker Beyond! The toothy edge is placed on the long side of the skinny triangle (on the original Hitchhiker, it’s on one of the short sides). The triangle is almost perfectly symmetric, which I am sure some of you will find very pleasing. But apart from that, the Hitchhiker Beyond shares the desirable qualities of its cousin: Garter stitch on the bias lets a pretty handdyed multicolor shine, it is squishy and warm, and the resulting shape is easy to wear. Only one skein of colorful fingering weight yarn will make a shawlette long enough to wrap around your neck several times. And just as the Hitchhiker, the Hitchhiker Beyond is an easy knit that is suitable for beginning knitters – and for those of you who do not like casting on or casting off lots of stitches. Enjoy, relax, and have fun showing this off to your knitting friends! Adaptable to amount of yarn. Yarn used here: 100 g of Miss Babs Yummy 2-ply, Colorway Dream Weaver.The pattern "Hitchhiker Beyond" is part of Martina Behm´s book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".



Addi-Click Lace Long Set
Can the concept of an interchangeable needle set be improved any further? Yes, it can! I have been using several different needle systems over the years, and all of them had the problem that after a while, the needle tips would become loose, yarn would be caught in the screwing section or the tips would fall off entirely (a catastrophe when you are knitting lace...!). The click system by German manufacturer Addi solves this problem: You insert the end of the cable, press and turn – and the needle tip is secured for good. It won't come off, even after many hours of knitting. The mechanism is not hard to learn (it's shown in this Youtube video (opens in new window, in German – but you will see how it works!). It's a patented, true innovation and I think it's really awesome as it makes knitters' lives easier. What I also like about it: If you need to set stitches aside you can just use a connector to attach the ends of the cable to each other (this would not work with other systems!).  If you would like to make the switch to the Addi click system, this luxurious needle set is four you: 8 pairs of Addi Lace tips (sharp, suitable for complex patterns) in 3.5 to 8 mms, 3 cables (lengths 60, 80 and 100 cm) and a connector (which lets you combine the cables to 140, 160 and 180 cm). They come in a beautiful pink-purple satin case, so there won't be any chaos and you will always find the tips you need. On the back of the case there's a zippered pouch for the cables. It's also a great gift for your favorite knitter. This premium knitting needle set features different pairs of addi-click needle tips and addi-click cords in different lengths that are quickly combined to create the exact circular knitting needle you need.These needles are great quality "Made in Germany". The needle sizes are printed on the points (metric and US). 

Aries Cedar Wood Blocks
Protect your handknitted shawls, socks and sweaters from moths: The fragrance blocks by Aries are made out of Atlas Cedar wood, which grows in Toscana, Italy. One block suffices to protect 11ft². Just place it between your knitted items or amidst your yarn stash – or wherever you would like the fragrance to spread. We also recommend to sand down the block every now and then with abrasive paper to reactivate the fragrance!

Santaverde Handcreme
I have been searching a long time for the ideal hand lotion for knitting hands. It should feel light and get absorbed quickly while still providing intensive care. In no way should the cream feel sticky or have a strong smell. Add to that the preference for truly certified organic cosmetics and the pickings get slim. Fortunately, the hand cream by Santaverde satisfies all these requirements.  It is made from pure aloe vera juice and rich oils from almond and coconut as well as shea butter and cocoa butter. It takes care of even rough and stressed hands, while feeling great.  The secret of Santaverde: Pure aloe vera juice uniquely rich in active ingredients from their own certified organic cultivation in Andalusia. Santaverde uses the pure juice, instead of the usual main ingredient water, complemented by precious plant oils and extracts, to create a unique effect for the health and beauty of your skin. You can find additional information at: www.santaverde.de Content: 50 mLIngredients (INCI) Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Alcohol*, Cetearyl Glucoside, Cetearyl Alcohol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter*, Glycerin, Cocos Nucifera Oil*, Betaine, Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter*, Xanthan Gum, Hippophaea Rhamnoides Fruit Extract*, Cistus Incanus Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract*, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil*, P-Anisic Acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Levulinic Acid, Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Hydroxide, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil*, Parfum**, Limonene, Linalool, Citronellol, Geraniol, Citral, Benzyl Benzoate.*Certified organic**Natural essential oils NATRUE certified organic skin care, free from synthetic fragrances, colourings and preservatives and 100 % vegan.
