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?

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.

It’s basically a different interpretation of my Hearts in Estonia Shawl I blogged about back in April 2010. I took my inspiration Read More

‚Tis The Season

And again a year is drawing to a close. Over the last year it turned out that social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Ravelry have gotten most of my attention when it comes to status updates, pictures and reviews. It’s hard to keep up blogging with longer, more profound updates. Ravely is just so Read More

FO :: Marvelous Spiral Shawl ::

Marvelous Spiral – A logarithmic spiral, equiangular spiral or growth spiral is a special kind of spiral curve which often appears in nature. The logarithmic spiral was first described by Descartes and later extensively investigated by Jacob Bernoulli, who called it Spira mirabilis, „the marvelous spiral“. This shawl pattern had caught my eye the first Read More

Summer has come and passed*

* from the lyrics of ‚Wake me up when September ends‘ by Green Day After a short but very hot summer it already feels very much like autumn in our neck of the woods right now. Although the sun is still shining brightly in a brilliantly blue sky it’s already pretty nippy in the shadows Read More
