Hallo, ich verwende eine andere Wolle (Eskimo). Die Lauflänge habe ich entsprechend umgerechnet, so dass ich genau so viele Meter Wolle in Weiß Eskimo habe wie in der Originalwolle. Nun ist Weiß schon zu Ende. ich muss nachbestellen. Können Sie mir eine ungefähre Antwort geben, wie viel Weiß wohl noch verwendet wird? Ich muss sonst alle weiteren Clues bis zum Ende abwarten, bis ich das abschätzen kann, das wäre furchtbar schade! Danke für jeden Hinweis, wenn möglich!

DROPS Design 08.05.2017 - 12:17:

Liebe Phoebe, Sie sollen dann bis zur Ende warten, um die Mengenangaben passen zu können. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Phoebe 02.05.2017 - 21:20:

Die Wolle in Weiß ist jetzt aufgebraucht. Ist das richtig? Wird für die nächsten Clues kein Weiß mehr benötigt? Oder muss ich nachbestellen? Viele Grüße!

DROPS Design 03.05.2017 - 11:41:

Liebe Phoebe, die angegebene Garnmenge Weiß in DROPS ♥ YOU #8 sollte reichen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Anja Gronemeyer 29.04.2017 - 17:30:

Okay, da hatte sich wohl ein Päckchen "hell lila" versteckt ... Frage hat sich somit erledigt!

Anja Gronemeyer 29.04.2017 - 16:20:

Bei mir reicht der Rest "lila hell" nicht um die 8. Runde zu beenden. Kann ich auch "lila" nehmen oder fehlt mir das dann an einer anderen Stelle?

DROPS Design 02.05.2017 - 14:33:

Liebe Frau Gronemeyer, Sie können "Lila" oder "Erika" nehmen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Therese 28.04.2017 - 08:59:

Hurra! Vilken rolig del att göra =)

Marie-Louise 28.04.2017 - 08:13:

Jag har köpt ett garnpaket till i andra färger och tänker virka en filt ytterligare. Tas ledtrådarna bort eller ligger de kvar på er hemsida? Vill ju inte stressa....

DROPS Design 03.05.2017 - 14:10:

Hej! Ledtrådarna kommer att finnas kvar, så du behöver inte ha bråttom.

Vävgumman 27.04.2017 - 21:29:

Kul och bra utmanande ruta, fick tänka till lite innan jag fick till det. Ser fram emot slutspurten. Spänningen stiger. Ha en bra Valborgshelg alla handarbetsvänner. 🔥😃

Anja 27.04.2017 - 11:07:

Dus we hoeven maar van elk vierkant eentje te maken als ik het goed begrijp?

DROPS Design 03.05.2017 - 09:48:

Hallo Anja, Ja, dat klopt helemaal!. Het zijn wat grotere vierkanten en je hoeft er maar 2 van te haken. Tot de volgende clue!
