One month down, 11 to go!

One month down, 11 to go!

Incredible as it is, January seems to be over already! Where did the weeks go? I barely managed to finish two projects for the UseWhatYouHaveKAL2019 yet, but together we have 46 FOs made already! All from stash yarn, all from queued patterns we always wanted to try out! I say YAY! What say you? I finished my Song for Elizabeth cardigan this week and already love the result. This was fun! I omitted the hood as my son doesn’t like…

addicted to UseWhatYouHaveKAL2019

Only a little more than one week into the new year I am already stoked to see so many finshed objects for the UWYH-KAL popping up in the FO thread and on Instagram! I can’t believe how fast you all are and it’s wonderful to get knitting together with you all from stash with patterns that we always wanted to make. It took me a while to finish my first FO for this KAL, because I had to finsh a…

One more year of destashing and ready for the next challenge!

One more year of destashing and ready for the next challenge!

Wow, what a ride. This year has been a blast, knitwise and otherwise. Not even my two small monsters (aka kids) who keep me busy at most times couldn’t keep me from destashing the hell out of my drawers. I’m proud to say that even with considerable intakes (for the #24pairsofsocks challenge I set for myself and from yarn I needed for my designs and also from gifts (thanks to my mother-in-law who discovered that she can make me a…

The Indie Design Giftalong is almost over and I’m still way behind with my knitting.

Your library is filled with lovely patterns that you always wanted to make but never found the time or yarn for, yet? Your stash is overflowing…

The Finale: Heimdallr Socks & Mittens + giveaway

Start the drumroll for the grand finale! It’s about time. You have seen three wonderful sets of cabled socks and mittens and maybe even learned a little about some figures from Norse Mythology: Jormungandr, the world snake. Oden, highest and wisest of Norse Gods and Frigg, his beautiful wife. Now I would like to introduce you to Heimdallr, guardian of the burning rainbow bridge called Bifrost, which links Midgard, our world, to the seat of the Gods in Asgard. Heimdallr…

The Advent calendar face

The Advent calendar face

Hooray! No need to keep the big socking mission a secret any longer! I can’t believe I managed to keep my mouth shut about this so I’m super relieved that December finally is here so my husband can open his advent calendar. It took me 4 month of continuous knitting and a few hours of wrapping (I’m not a wrapping-genius, as you probably can tell….) to make this calendar for him, most of the time he was sitting next to…

Happy kids mittens – new pattern

Happy kids mittens – new pattern

It’s been weeks since I’ve seen the sun here in Stockholm and if it weren’t for all the happy colours in my stash I would probably go crazy. So, to keep me from going insane and to keep my hands busy (as If I needed any more projects for that!) I wrote up the pattern for my boys’s favourite mittens and hope that they will keep us and you happy on dark and cold winter days. And it’s only one…
