Bridgewater - triangular shawl

FO :: Bridgewater Triangle ::

Just when I wanted to set a link to this wonderful shawl I had knitted for myself back in June and July I discovered that I hadn’t ever posted anything about it. How is this even possible? Brooklyn Tweed’s Bridgewater shawl had caught my eye back when it first appeared online. It is the iconic Read More

Snow Stars hat kids, red

Free pattern :: Snow Stars Hat ::

  Warm, sunny fall weather has made way to the inevitable wet, cold and slightly dreary days. Time to prepare for winter with these quick, cute heads. Originally this project was only meant to try out this new, ecological yarn I’d found through Facebook – Schurwolle by FaireWolle.de. It’s a sturdy worsted spun wool from Read More

Qwist Hat, Design: mairlynd

FO :: Qwist Hat ::

Summer seems to have taken its leave and I actually finished a new hat. One of the first items to cross of my winter knitting list. It’s a very nicely written pattern and the textured fabric is interesting knit. Very motivating. My only critic about it would be the fact that the round starts between Read More

Cozy Blanket border detail

FO :: Cozy Stripe Blanket ::

One big satisfying taaadaaaaahhhh moment: my first real full sized crochet blanket is done! I can hardly believe how pretty this turned out, how much I loved working with the cheap economic acrylic Stylecraft Special DK yarn and how utterly relaxing the whole process has been. Originally I had planned to follow Lucy’s original Cozy Read More

Crochet Flat Circle Cushion

FO :: Crochet Circle Cushion ::

Another fun idea of Lucy from Attic24 – the flat circle cushion. Nice way to use up some left over bits and pieces and the resulting cushion is a fun and colorful addition to hour crazy household. For the backside I used a cotton/microfiber blend yarn double and worked with a larger hook. This way the bottom Read More

Colorful Yarn

Do you know Attic24? It’s a blog by the incredibly talented Lucy of Attic24 and she’s been dazzling us with her colorful crochet creations for quite some time. Actually, back in 2011 it was her wonderful blankets that got me to dig out some hooks and yarn and give crochet another try – for what Read More

Happy New Year

As always the end of a years seems to come way quicker than you think. For us the weeks leading up to Christmas were filled with appointments, to do lists, short dark evenings and before you can even blink it’s a new year. Especially with kids the end of the year is not a particular Read More

Micro Cobblestone

Jared Flood’s Cobblestone Sweater had instantly caught my eye when it first appeared in Interweave Knits magazine’s Fall 2007 issue. It is such a clean design but still offers some interest. And of course I’m a sucker for tweedy yarns, so I fell right for this one 😉 But unfortunately I neither found the yarn Read More

Garter Stitch Goodness

I am with Jared Flood aka Brooklyntweed in my endless fascination with the squishyness and and geometry of the garter stitch. And especially for children’s patterns I can hardly resist a cute garter stitch garment. When Berenike was small I made her a Tomten jacket from Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Genius pattern. It was a much loved Read More

Berenice for Berenike

Vacation time is long past, school holidays are over tomorrow and the regularly scheduled life is about to begin anew. I can honestly say that I am quite happy for school to start again after the customary 6 weeks hiatus. While „vacation“ always sounds so nice in the beginning it does certainly come with its Read More
