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 […]
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.
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 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 he got cold on the […]
So I made one dogsweater. And now I’ve suddenly made 3! I’ll post the third one later, as I don’t have proper photos yet. But I made this one for a little Kleinspitz called Max! He’s 6 months old, and the sweater is still a bit big for him. But then he can grow into it and enjoy the warmth […]
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, so I spent some time […]
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 […]
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 had some fun with it, […]
I’m a bit late to post, cause Gnutmeg was finished on December 24th! But I’ve just been too busy cleaning up after all his mischief to have time to post here. Here is the link to my Ravelry project page: Mazter’s ADVENTure Gnome As soon as Gnutmeg was finished, Gnomey decided to show him around. You know… Being finished on […]
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 […]
I love the leash I made, so I made one for my Secret Santa swap on Redditgifts as well! My giftee has a female dog, so I was happy to be able to use some purple! Hopefully they will like it. I also made a black and blue one that I’ve put up for sale. My giftee also has 2 […]
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. […]
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.
