Stocksee Story

Product information "Stocksee Story"

When we moved to the countryside a couple of years ago, we couldn’t believe how beautiful it is around here: Woods and lakes and scenery, freedom for your eyes, comfort for the soul. I especially enjoy afternoons at lake Stocksee when I just watch the ducks and grebes and the subtle changes in the water surface. “Stocksee Story” captures this mood: Made out of a great supersoft silk-merino blend by Manos del Uruguay, dyed to perfection in a colorway that resembles a blue water surface with reflections of the shrubs and trees at the shore, it will be warm, soft and a pleasure to look at. The garter-stitch mini waves are completed by bigger ones in the middle of the shawl, created by tuck stitches that look interesting from the front and the reverse side. Add two pretty tassels for extra interest – and there you have your Stocksee Story!

Manos del Uruguay Fino
Color Manos del Uruguay: Watered Silk
Luxurious and so soft! "Fino" by Manos del Uruguay is a voluminous single-ply consisting of 30% silk and 70% merino wool – really soft and perfect for a pretty shawl like Samadhi, Baltic Summer, Hitchhiker, Heaven & Space or Lintilla. The multicolored versions are perfect for Martina's designs, and one skein of 450 m per 100 g will yield a decently sized shawl. The yarn is hand dyed by a cooperative in Uruguay that offers employment to rural women in difficult life situations. The merino fiber comes from South America and is mulesing-free.  Please note: Handwash only.  The sample "Samadhi" from our book "Hitchhiker Collection" was made out of one skein of this yarn, colorway "Watered Silk".The sample "Wolkig" from our book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions" was made out of one skein of this yarn, colorway "Silver Teaset".

This knitting accessory bag is different: Open the zipper and it will expand to a bowl where you can see all your knitting accessories at once. With a diameter of a little less than 10 inches, this bowl holds everything you need when knitting: circular needles, dpns, crochet hooks, tape measures, needle gauges, pens and pencils... you name it! It is also suitable for small projects like socks or hats or can be used as a pencil case. Just put it on the table in front of you and go! And when you're done, everything will be well protected by the sturdy organic cotton fabric. Strickmich! Bowl is sewn by Manomama in Augsburg, Germany after an idea by knitwear designer Martina Behm: Sturdy organic cotton fabric that will hold its shape and a reinforced bowl bottom with wool felt from German sheep who live in the Black Forest. The contrast-color zipper looks great with the Strickmich! logo tag and is made in Germany as well.  Manomama is a project by Sina Trinkwalder, who established Manomama in the old textile hub Augsburg in Bavaria, employing people who find it hard to find work otherwise. Fair pay and good working conditions are an essential part of the project.

Match & Move
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
I just love the “We’re Different”-Grab Bags from Rohrspatz & Wollmeise: Depending on which kind you choose, you will get a combination of a multicolor and a matching semisolid, hand-picked by the dyemaster herself, who has an unmatched sense of color. What shall I say? I was really surprised when I saw that she teamed up a softly variegated brown-grey with a bold and warm red. I just had to give it a try and get my knitting needles moving! So here’s “Match & Move”, a shawl designed to show off the perfect Wollmeise color combination and use up (almost!) an entire grab bag of yarn. My shawl weighs 286 grams. The unusual construction results in kinked stripes that look really interesting when you wear it. The knitting is plain garter stitch and very relaxing, and the shawl is so big and comfy, it is just a dream to wear. Definitely my favorite shawl so far – and I am determined to order another grab bag, be surprised and knit myself one more. Size of the shawl in the pictures: 200 x 50 cm (80 x 20 inches) 286 g of yarn (140 g of color A and 146 g of color B) Wollmeise Colors: Resi and Zimtapfel (both WD)The pattern "Match & Move" is part of Martina Behm´s book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".
