Weather around these parts has been very unsteady and downright depressing over the last month. We’ve had and early spell of warmth followed by a sharp turn into frosty temperatures. And of course the rain always hits in time for the weekend. Now this yearly cold snap that’s called ‚Frost Saints‘ (Eisheiligen) in German is Read More


I really have no idea what „Schnullerkette“ is called in English. Pacifier lanyard? Soothie clip? Well, it’s this thing where one end is clipped to the baby’s clothing and to the other one you attach a pacifier. Little Mr. T needed a new one because the old lanyard got chewed through after half a year Read More

But there’s always a Read More

Time flies

I cannot believe that we’re going on Halloween already. The halfway mark of my pregnancy came and went and now I’m already nearing the magical remaining 100 days. And the baby bundle is well and already kicking up a storm in my ever growing belly. Naturally baby knitting has been done – romper, pants, leg Read More

A Quilt – My very first one

Last weekend at our spinning group a lady brought a patchwork project and some supplies and gave a mini patchwork and quilting workshop. I stood on the sidelines and watched with interest. The whole thing look intriguing and easy enough and my curiosity was piqued. Could I do this? Sew lines straight enough to make Read More


So, yeah, we’re actually doing this baby adventure a second time 🙂 If things go as planned then this one is going to be a February baby. Perfect season for an avid knitter like myself 😉 The cute Pepita pattern has been on my to-do list for ages. Never felt like knitting this one for Read More
