Here is the result of last weekends dyeing at my cottage! All dyed with lichen and mushrooms that I've gathered myself. In total, 2225 grams of yarn. Most in 25 gram skeins. I am in love with the purple and magenta, my favourite colors. The lichen was in an airtight bucket for 4 months, with … Continue reading All natural dyes
The last months have been slow when it comes to crafting. Surgeries and summer and all that. But now it's autumn! With beautiful colors, rainy days and the cold keeping me more indoors. So my inspiration is back! And so are the mushrooms! I love mushrooms. The taste, colors and wide variety they come in. … Continue reading Colors!
Dreams of Flatlandia
This west was a test knit for Ciospy knits. It's an awesome pattern! I fell in love with the graphic design, and immediately imagined it in bright colors! So that is what I made. This is intarsia, and at times it was tedious. I don't love knitting intarsia, but I love the results! And small … Continue reading Dreams of Flatlandia
Since I'm super late to post, this was done in the middle of March. It's super warm and cozy, just like I wanted! This will be well used during winter.
Sorry about the silence!
I just realised I've completely forgotten my blog the last months. I have a tendency to think "Oh, I need to do that thing!" and then forget. That has happened a lot the last months. Partially because I've been through two major surgeries, which has affected my energy levels, my concentration, my motivation to knit … Continue reading Sorry about the silence!

The pattern calls for 3 strands kid-silk and 1 strand DK weight, but instead of DK I'm … Continue reading Lieblingsweater
Redditgifts: Gifts for pets
I love secret santa swaps! So when I found redditgifts, I was very pleased. For this current round I joined 2 swaps, one of them being gifts for pets. My giftee has two cats, and of course, I wanted to make something myself. So I made them two little kitty toys, which my cats (and … Continue reading Redditgifts: Gifts for pets
I finally made socks! It's not really my first pair, I actually made a pair of socks before. But they were super simple, worsted weight socks for a friend. These are the first ones I made for myself. And in fingering weight yarn, that was custom made for me in a swap on Ravelry! I … Continue reading Sparkly socks
Bunnymuff designs was looking for test knitters for one of her new designs in January. And when I saw them, I knew I had to make them! They had mushrooms on them! What could be more perfect than that for my mushroom-dyed yarn? They took a while to make, as I was sick for over … Continue reading Mushroom-dyed mushmittens!
Even more dog sweaters!
I swear, I am knitting other stuff too. And I will post them! But first I need to show off these dog sweaters I've made, since I have been super late in updating my blog! I have at least 6 FO's since last time. I made one very colorful, very visible sweatervest for Gin, because … Continue reading Even more dog sweaters!
