Instagram & WIPs

This summer my phone died. It wasn’t completely unexpected, but I had hoped it would last until the release of the new IPhone. I had set my mind on the IPhone 5S and I hoped the release of the new model would bring down the price. Unfortunately, I do not have such luck and thus Lees meer »

Big Brother is watching you

Today’s my birthday. And I’m not just saying this to get birthday-wishes, but because I saw this on Google this morning: And I though, “Hey, what a coincidence. What would be the meaning of these cakes? A famous birthday?” And then I scrolled over the image and saw this: And yeah, that does creep me Lees meer »

It’s already over

The lion’s share of my vacation has already passed by. But a glorious vacation it was! My goddaughter’s sleepover and planned visit to an amusement park was a rounding success. Definitely worth repeating! Then followed the travelling portion of my vacation. My parents were staying with the caravan in Saint Rémy de Provence for a Lees meer »

Summer yarn question

Good morning all! Have a nice Pentecostal Monday ^_^ In reaction to my previous post, Myriam asked me if Catania cotton is well suited to make summery clothes with. I had always assumed it is. It can’t only be meant for amigurumi, right? But due to another reaction, by Marianne, I’m starting to have doubts. Lees meer »

Why I couldn’t control myself this time

In my previous post I already mentioned that I had a shopping spree in a yarn shop. This was triggered by a single pattern that had been on my mind for a while now. Until last Thursday I had been able to control myself, but then I saw some other patterns that really made my Lees meer »

The ever growing list and the yarn trap

I have a lot of yarn. A whole lot of yarn. According to my stash on Ravelry I have 84719 meters lying around the house. That’s about 33 kilos. Oh dear, that’s really a lot! And still, still I never have what I need. You’re probably familiar with this issue? I have the obnoxious habbit Lees meer »
