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 […]
My current project is going to be so comfy! The most cozy sweater ever. It has a fitting name, as it means “favourite sweater”. Can’t wait to finish it! I’m using 3 strands of yarn instead of 4. The pattern calls for 3 strands kid-silk and 1 strand DK weight, but instead of DK I’m using aran weight yarn, of […]

I have at least 6 FO’s since last time. I made one very colorful, very visible sweatervest for Gin, because he got cold on the […]
I photographed all the handdyed yarn and added it to the “For sale” page! Here’s a little sneak peak of what’s there. Perfect as a present for yourself or another yarnlover you care about.
