Currently: June 2016

Hi everyone, how’s it going? I hope you’re all well. So, you probably haven’t noticed (I’m pretty sure you have plenty other sources of entertainment) and when I started this blog, I swore to myself not to write a sentence like this, but I really am a little sorry for not having blogged in a while. I’ve been really good at keeping a consistant blog schedule ever since I started […]

I KNIT A SWEATUUUUUR!!! *

Guys, I’m so insanely proud. After all the trouble with my Snowflake sweater, I finally finished plan B, the green cardigan. I don’t know whether to be surprised or shocked, because IT FITS PERFECTLY!!! Actually: When I finished this one and put it on for the first time, I did a little happy dance in front of the mirror. Okay, more like […]

The lace details were super lovely […]

A handmade cowl
and more thoughts on knitting

While making this cowl, I thought a lot about the difference between sewing and knitting. Knitting takes time. And comparing the size of a garment to the time you need for making it, it’s not at all comparable to sewing (where you can just whip up a t-shirt in a few hours). For that, knitting – even more than sewing – requires me to really think about what I want […]

Knit Hat #2 and further knitting plans

Okay, so I obviously caught the knitting bug. Shortly after my first hat was finished, I ran to the yarn shop 15 minutes before closing time to pick up wool for the next project. How cool is it that there’s a yarn shop right across my street? It’s next to a small fabric store … Although, on second thought, I am not so sure whether that’s a good or bad […]
