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…

Autumn leftovering

Finally the temperatures are perfect for knitting, the evenings are getting longer and the days crisper. My favourite season has begun! Not only do the fireworks of colours blow my mind every year but I also wouldn’t want to miss the crisp and fresh air during an autumn walk. Isn’t the red incredible?? I swear I don’t edit my pictures, the colours are all natural and I seriously can’t get over them! It’s been way too long since I took…

New pattern: Oden’s Mitts and Socks + Giveaway

Hooray! It’s autumn! And autumns means cold, windy and possibly even rainy days and looong evenings best spent on your favourite knitting spot (aka sofa) with a cuppa tea and loads of yarn to cuddle with. What better way to kick off this knitter’s season than with a set of new patterns? Maybe add a giveaway, too? If you have been following me for a while you will have noticed that I am working on a series of patterns inspired…

Operation Sockdrawer – mission accomplished!

Operation Sockdrawer – mission accomplished!

It started in April, when I was faced with two problems: 1: My Sockables Drawer was STILL about to explode (even after One year of yarn diet there was only a tiny dent in it!!) 2: My husband was complaining that I never made socks for him (NOT true, but he’s a size 47 and pretty picky, so NOT cool to knit for him, just saying!). So the obvious solution to both problems was to make a bunch of socks for…

New pattern: Jormungandr Mitts and Socks + Giveaway

After socking it for the biggest part of this year I am finally ready for something new. So when I was reading Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythoogy this summer I got inspired to design a set of patterns inspired by the characters of these stories. So I wrote and knitted, ribbed, knitted again, annoyed my test knitters (I love you ladies, you know that!! Right??) and finally had my first set of patterns ready to show. The Jormungandr Socks and Mittens…

Work in progress

The summer break is almost over and it’s HOT! And by hot I mean that it’s HOT! But if you are thinking that I am referring to the weather, you’re mistaken (well, not quite, but… oh). Because I have extremely hot news for you. All summer long my brain has been on meltdown mode and I barely had the energy to breathe. But apparently it helped hatching some new ideas. In between almost finishing my #24pairsofsocks challenge and cooling down…
