If I could sleep a thousand sleeps, I would. But life is too precious to just let it pass on by, with my eyes closed. It’s raining again though — my favourite kind that just drizzles and tinkle and slip softly off the leaves on the tree. Perhaps I’ll snooze for a little while more. […]

Sinfully Knotty

I cast on another Vertebrae cardigan the other day. I dove into my stash and decided to use some Schachenmayr Bravo Color DK yarn that is a pretty purple variegated yarn. But within an inch or so I realized it was pooling in ugly splotches so I frogged it back, added a second skein and am switching every other row. Trouble is it is still pooling. And I am not liking how it looks. I love the solid purple and the lighter speckled colour too, but I don’t like the way the solid colour is puddling. In a sock it would probably form a stripe but not with the cardi.

De Rose City Rollers zijn een gratis patroon op Ravelry van Mara Catherine Bryner. Deze sokken wilde ik al een tijdje maken omdat ik in de winter graag wollen sokken draag en dus bedacht dat het ook lekker is om deze in mijn sneakers te dragen. Bijna twee jaar geleden kocht ik een setje bij […]

South Devon Stitches

As part of my current project #100daysofmycrochetgarden over on Instagram, I recently decided to have a go at free styling a crochet fern. The beauty of free motion crochet is that you can go wherever your hook takes you and make the finished item look however you want it to. Both of the ferns below […]

Het is al even geleden dat ik naar een podcast van NewLeafDesigns.nl zat te kijken, namelijk maart 2018. Carmen vertelt hierin over haar nieuwste ontwerp de Striped and Stranded Socks. Ik ben opslag verliefd op de sokken! Ik hou van zelfstrepend garen en kleurwerk is iets waar ik me steeds meer in aan het verdiepen […]

The Stitchcraft Sixties

This month’s project was a little bit different than usual. Instead of making something from the April 1961 issue, which didn’t have any projects that really spoke to me, I decided to finally make something I’ve been dreaming of ever since I made this little girl’s jacket from the March 1960 issue. I loved the […]

My entry for the weekly Spoonflower design challenge, inspired by a talk by Beatrice Schachenmayr ( @frameyourstoryproject http://frameyourstory.org/ ) that I attended recently. She mentioned the Georgia O’Keeffe quote as part of the talk and it struck me as something I’d been pondering for a while but hadn’t yet put into words. And then this […]
