To late and to early!

How can both be right? Well my sister sent me my birthday present early and birthday wishes for David a little late, but that's O.K. Especially if you find the new Verena in your package and this cute little calendar, which converts to bookmarks after each month. I LOVE it! See the card? It's handmade and the little heart shaped bone-lace is adorable! Thank you Susi! She's wrapped it all nicely, but since she didn't say anywhere not to open until actual birthday, I've acted like a little child and ripped it open. It's always such a pleasure to receive gifts! ;o)
I used to buy Verena monthly, back in the days I was still living in Austria. It looks like they publish it only four times a year now. Have a look of what's inside this issue. They use a lot of mohair and not much color for this season. There's everything from funky to elegant.


On another note, all the "knitting ladies" have pilgrimed to Rhinebeck. A week ago I didn't even know it exists and now I'd like to be there as well! Can't wait to read all about it.
Have a nice weekend y'all! ;o)
Next time some knitting contents of my own.

I wish I was at Rhinebeck too - looks like they have a beautiful weekend unlike last year (RAIN). It would just be fun to be around so many like- minded people! Maybe next year....

Da hat Deine Schwester bestimmt das selbe gedacht wie ich: bloß rechtzeitig abschicken, damit das Geburtstaggeschenk pünklich da ist. Das neue VERENA Heft habe mir auch schon angeschaut, aber nocht nicht gekauft, obwohl einige schöne Sachen drin sind. Viel Spaß damit!

Such a great card, very pretty! I used to like Verena a lot, but don't really anymore - it seems they're a lot into that kind of extreme fashion that hardly anyone could wear in normal life, at least I got this impression with their latest issues - this new one I haven't seen yet. Then again, they have so many projects in one magazine that there's always something amongst them that's possible to make (and wear). Still, I prefer Sabrina, their projects are a lot more wearable. ;)

Love the card with the tatted lace. I always wondered what tatting would be good for if one did not have the concentration to do a whole tablecloth - now I know! Actually, tatted rings make great stitch markers too.
