Yoga Yay!

14 10 2014

Sometimes it's really puzzling how thoughts can influence reality, right?

Not that I practice it consciously - I tried a bit though, when "The Secret" became a hit - but eventually gave up due to too little determination.

In the past weeks I thought quite often about my yoga mat and where it could possibly be hidden in one of the 100 boxes we haven't unpacked after our move and which are stored in the cellar.

Because I am longing to start yoga again to balance out the time spent sitting and working at my studio desk.

Well... great timing - exactly then I received an e-mail from asanayoga.de with the offer to test some of their yoga products.

I really like the calming vibe of their website and the sustainable, eco-friendly products they offer, so I happily said yes.

I chose the ECO Yoga mat  in a beautiful grey - organically produced in Germany (and on sale right now!) - and a special Energy water bottle.

The glas bottle has an informed tag with positive vibes from pranas, music, mantra, thoughts, prayers etc. to help restructure the water. 

Informed products are backed by 30 years of research and innovation.

The bottle has an innovative design with colored rubber bands all around for a great grip and to protect the glas.

If you knock this bottle accidentally over during yoga class - and that has happened more than one time to me - it barely makes a sound and it doesn't roll away so you don't feel like disturbing the class.

I couldn't decide on one of the bright colors the bottle comes in and ended up choosing the white one.

Ok - I am all set! Happy Yoga!

Thanks to asanayoga.de for this nice cooperation.

Happy Day,

Anette

Big Loop Knitted Hat Tutorial

29 08 2014 DIY

Oh I know I know...none of us want's to talk about fall and winter yet, but fact is, the nights are getting colder and the season change is lingering in the air.

But I have something for you to sweeten the farewell of summer:

A super cozy and chunky hat tutorial.

So fun to make and wear!

Chunky Hat Tutorial by Lebenslustiger.com

It's made of Loopy Mango Big Loop yarn which is available in my Shop or directly at Loopy Mango NY.

You can also use any other mega chunky yarn.

The pattern is similar to the Helsinki hat by Loopy Mango but less in height and I used much thinner needles, because I didn't have thicker ones.

This wool is just gorgeous and my goal was, not to waste even a tiny bit of this precious yarn.

So I wanted to get two hats out of a 36m skein - and it worked!

Here come the patterns for an adult size hat and a kids size hat with a fun bobble on top. 

For two hats you will need:

- About 36m of Big Loop Yarn

- A set of needles size 15mm/US size 19 ( if you have needles size 20mm/US size 36 and you want to use those, please keep in mind, that you might need more yarn)

If you want to use circular needles instead of a set there is a technique called "magic-loop-method".

Someone recently mentioned it to me in the comment section in one of my other tutorials. But I haven't tried that technique yet.

Ok! Let's start with the adult version (and of course you can also add the bobble to the adult version!!!)

Adult hat pattern 

Round 1: Cast on 18 Stitches 

The yarn length you need for casting on is about 3m. Don't pull too tight while casting on.

Generally it's better to knit this yarn fairly loose because you are using small needles for this size of yarn. The yarn needs to be able to breathe a bit.

Make sure there is no twist when you connect to a loop.
