Knitting Sock Heels: Afterthought vs Boomerang

Knitting Sock Heels: Afterthought vs Boomerang

2017 is the year of de-stashing. At least for me. I’ve told you already that my challenge for this year to knit ONLY from stash yarns. And so far I’ve kept this promise that I made to myself (I haven’t even thought about buying more yarn, I must be seriously sick…). Also I want to learn a few new things this year, so let’s get started. Better late than never. After an incredible sock-frenzy that yielded ten pairs of socks…

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…

New designs in progress

It’s been a busy few months and a lot of things have happened. We’ve had loads of snow, which means of course that all traffic was stuck for a few days, as usual (why on earth would people expect a snowy winter in Sweden? Crazy, right?) Hooray for public transport and train-knitting… My son took his first steps and is speeding up our lifestyle in the process and I bruised my foot and thus now finally have enough time to…
