Scrappily Ever After – a happy end for your leftovers

Scrappily Ever After – a happy end for your leftovers

Long have I carried the idea for these happy scrappy knits around in my head until FINALLY, after 5 months of waiting, I was reunited with my beloved stash after the move around the globe. The possibilities were endless, it was the hardest thing to choose which scraps from my treasure chest to use up first. Nothing seemed to be in my way! May they live scrappily ever after! And then Covid-19 happened. It took an awful long time just…

2020 plans and free pattern projects

New year, new country, new plans! I’m usually not big on new year’s resolutions, but I’m always planning something.

The Finale: Heimdallr Socks & Mittens + giveaway

Start the drumroll for the grand finale! It’s about time.

Oden, highest and wisest of Norse Gods and Frigg, his beautiful wife.

Dart Mitts – new pattern out now!

Hooray for maternity leave! All of a sudden I get things done that have been on my mind for aeons. And getting my yarn out to play is only one of them.

Fish String Bag

Fish String Bag

It’s been quite a while since I made the last fish string bag. And now that I had the opportunity to make one again and use up some odds and ends in the process I wonder why it took me such a long time to get back to this pattern. There is nothing better than diving into the lefover bowl every once in a while! The best part is to choose the colors for the scales! And do you also…

Toucan Tim

Toucan Tim

Did I mention that I’m suffering from an inspirational overkill lately? The never ending to-do-list in my head grows quicker than my poor brain can handle and for some reason the extra-hands that I ordered ages ago seem to have gotten lost in the mail.
