A very special capelet

I apologise for the long silence. I’ve been sick since February, and just haven’t had the energy to stay up to date on all social platforms. I even had almost 3 months were I drowned myself in video games, cause I couldn’t focus on crafting. But here is a project I really am pleased to be done with! It’s kinda […]

First market!

I am at my first market! I have brought lots of plantdyed yarn, knitted hats and earwarmers. This market is with lots of others in the local handicrafts association, where we all work together and place things by category. I will be at 3 other markets the next month where I will be at my own table. Gonna be interesting!

All natural dyes

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 2 parts water and 1 […]

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 tricks, like yarn bobbins, help […]

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 dog) love. I also bought […]

Sparkly socks

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 have started a project with […]

Headbands!

I have made a bunch of headbands to put out for sale. I’ll get them into the shop soon! But I need to take photos of each one separately first. I’ve knitted them double, using quality yarn from some of my favorite brands (Mondial, Pickles, Rauma, Du Store Alpakka etc). These twist headbands are my favorite! I love wearing them […]

Oh so bright!

This year, all four kids have gotten a knitted sweater. Unlike others perhaps, I don’t love making big items for the kids. I do love finishing them and seeing the kids happy! But I have less patience with my knitting when I know they will grow out of them soon. But still! I promised, and so far, 3 of 4 […]
