Summer Skies Hat – FREE PATTERN –

Summer Skies Hat – FREE PATTERN –

Don’t we all have this proverbial yarn-skeleton in our closet? That ball of yarn that isn’t just ever going to fit any project we’ll start. Because it’s simply not you. Right? I never hid the fact that I am completely not in love with the colour pink. My dislike for it even seems to spark some amusement among my friends, so one of my closest friends wrapped her wedding gift for us into a whole 300 yards of baby pink…

Knit-a-whale

Knit-a-whale

When I was a kid I wanted to become a marine biologist. Anything connected to the ocean fascinated me (and still does!) and especially the big whales and funky deep-sea creatures got to me. Diving and aquariums never lose their magic for me and I can never be away from the ocean for too long. Who ever saw a whale up close can never forget this unbelieveable encounter. Whales are at the top of the food chain and have an…

Ooh Crab! New Pattern out now!

Ooh Crab! New Pattern out now!

Nothing is as inspiring as a child. There are so many cute ideas for kids that it’s hardly possible to keep track of all the ideas for toys and decoration that keep popping up every day. I am always looking for more decoration for our kid’s room and came across so many beautiful cushions, but none quite as unique as I’d like them to be. So I decided to make one myself that can work both as pillow and toy…

You saved the day! (and some penguins)

You saved the day! (and some penguins)

You made it possible! In buying the Patty the Penguin knitting pattern you helped me donate the full price directly to the WWF. With this money I symbolically adopted an Emperor Penguin chick for you, which arrived safely this week. I was already able to donate 50$ and added another 30$ myself and I hope to be able to collect a lot more. This really makes me happy. It’s maybe just a very small drop on a very hot stone,…

Trainspott…knitting

Trainspott…knitting

I’m commuting a lot. As in A LOT. As you might have noticed. What better way to spend those dead hours with something useful like knitting? And since my mind has been completely focused on the In Bloom Shawl and mittens combo, why not knit matching socks as well? I made a simple toe up sock with an In Bloom cuff as in the mittens pattern. I quite like it, how about you? You can find the pattern for these…

In Bloom Mittens

In Bloom Mittens

Do you sometimes have that feeling that nothing in your wardrobe belongs together? I have loads of shawls and even more mittens, but none of them seem to match. How weird! So I decided to design fingerless mittens matching the In Bloom Shawl. And here they are. Since I can’t decide if i like them better with or without thumbs, I wrote down instructions for both and let you choose. I think it works very well with yarns with longer…
