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
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 … Continue reading Redditgifts: Gifts for pets
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!
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 … Continue reading Oh so bright!
Knitted pet stuff
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. … Continue reading Knitted pet stuff
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 … Continue reading Mittens!
