My husband the ski enthusiast told me about one of the world's best female biathlon athletes, Magdalena Neuner from Germany. She is three times world champion in the noble sport of skiing and shooting.
She's also a knitter, and German yarn makers Lana Grossa seem to be among her sponsors. They have set up a website for her, Magdalena strickt
, with patterns and knitblog. It's all in German, but the language of knitting is usually quite easy to interpret.
Blogger seems to have upload problems again, if you can't see the images here, take a look in her Bildergalerie.

The weather in Luxemburg is far from suitable for skiing, it's quite warm and the skies have been clear and blue for several days now. I have finished Mr Greenjeans, I just need to trim the yarn ends and sew in buttons. It's very nice. I'll get photos for the blog and Ravelry this weekend. (At least it's the plan!)
I just cast on for a pair of Chevalier
mittens, using a Finnish pattern
(luckily with English translation!). I'm using two strands of Jojoland Harmony, and so far my first mitten is beautiful. I'm cabling without cable needle and the double yarn, the very tight cables and 5 dpns make for an interesting adventure...
My husband wanted a red and black scarf and I had some problems finding the right pattern. In the end I settled for bicolour brioche (tvåfärgad patentstickning).
