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 … Continue reading A very special capelet
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 … Continue reading First market!
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
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 … Continue reading Lieblingsweater
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!
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!
I've been wanting to make some dog-sweaters, but haven't gotten around to it. And I didn't have a dog to put it on either. But last week I got an order in for a sweater for a little corgi, about a month younger than Gin. So I finally made one! Corgi's have an odd shape, … Continue reading My first dog-sweater
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 … Continue reading Headbands!
I finally finished the neon sweater for my daughter! She got it right before bedtime yesterday, which was suitable, since it was her birthday! My little girl is 9 years old now. Time flies! She loves her new sweater, and gladly posed for some photos. She loves being photographed, unlike her older sister! So we … Continue reading The neon madness is done!
