The blog is moving to a new home!

It is amazing how fast time flies when you're too busy. There have been plans for the development of this blog for quite some time now, but because of an evident lack of time and sometimes energy, I haven't been able to create new posts.

Luckily the situation has changed and today I am in the happy position to announce that the blog has a new home! It's fancier, but mainly a lot more organized. You can find it at blog.uberdentraum.com

With the new version I aim to improve the user experience so any thoughts and feedback would be very welcome. :)

Looking forward to sharing many exciting projects with you!

Introduction to Fractals




The project that I am going to talk about today is rather fascinating because it incorporates the beautiful concept of fractals as it's main color work pattern. The second most interesting part is that it is double knitted, creating a double sided, double soft and thick piece of fabric that fends off the cold very well.

A Beatnik in Vivid Orange

My second attempt on a Norah Gaughan design is the ever-so-popular Beatnik cable sweater, which had been on my queue for quite some time. I really enjoyed making it, even when it got a bit time consuming or boring at times.



The design is modern and retro at the same time, and it features a neckline that is to die for! (One of the main reasons I wanted to make this pattern)

Summer No-show Socks

Something new I tried very recently, is the concept of no-show socks. Socks that can be worn to provide comfort or to prevent the creation of blisters, and at the same time give the impression of a bare foot. Sheila Toy Stormberg over at Ravelry is really into this type of socks and has produced patterns for many different versions.



I followed Skimmer Socks, and it was pretty neat.

Rainbows on my hands

One of the most colorful(and cheerful) projects I've made to date, is a pair of gloves made by only one strand of yarn. Throughout. The yarn that does the job of creating this beautiful Rainbow effect is Sock Hop by Dancing Leaf Farm.


The pattern on the other hand, is of my own improvisation.
