The blanket is very graphic and constructed out of garter stitch triangles running in different directions. It’s done with short-rows and modular knitting. It’s been so much fun and a quick knit.Ate Read More

Inspirational Knitting

The weather even though mighty cold in the morning warmed up nicely during the day and made the last day of the season a huge success. The number of participants was astonishing and it seemed like everyone wanted Read More

Wollmeise Mania

Over the past years indie dyer „Wollmeise“ has gained an incredible popularity allover the world. When I first ordered a few skeins of 100% Merino yarn with Claudia it was a small affair with the distinctive, cute flash based Wollmeise website. The page showed yarns in maybe 20 interestingly named, bright colorways that you could Read More

Summer has come and passed*
