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 […]

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 […]

Mushroom-dyed mushmittens!

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 a week, then the kids […]

Mittens!

It’s winter, and that means time for mittens! I get cold easily, so I need to wrap myself up in wool. And what’s better than items you knit yourself? These mittens were a mystery knitalong from The Needle Lady, so I had no idea what they would look like. But I am very pleased with the result! They’re so wintery. […]

Coming to the shop – yarn!

This year I took the step from dyeing with commercial dyes, to plant dyes. And that was so much fun, that I suddenly had a lot more yarn than I needed. Imagine that, huh? Strange. So, all these beautiful skeins are going into the shop! I just need to get the time to take photos of each one, and make […]

Headbands for everyone!

As I mentioned in my last post, I need those small, instant gratification projects from time to time. I found that the headband I made was so nice and cozy that I wanted another one! So I made one, just with thicker needles and a different twist. I love these little projects. And the kids wants some too! So I […]

WIP’s!

I try to never have more than one project on the needles at one time, except for my little “travel-shawl” that I bring along if I need something easy when traveling. So in other words, I am not really one of those knitters who have a ton of WIP’s! At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself. And then I […]
