    That time I tried to make roses from clay

    A while back I said that I was totally intrigued by the beautiful things people could make out of clay and that I also wanted to try it out. And recently in the shops I saw a packet of air-dry modelling clay for a ridicoulisly low price, so yeah, why not give it a try? The clay was grey, like…

    Moana ta-dah!

    Finished! The knit dress in Catania is finished! As I mentioned before, the dress turned out a little smaller than I had hoped. The chest size is only 57cm, while I had hoped for 61cm. Therefore I also compensated in the length and knit to 51cm. You can see a couple of sloppy areas, especially where I had to begin…

    Almost two years later

    In a previous message I mentioned I was thinking about starting a new crochet project, but instead I picked up an old unfinished project! This bolero was started over 2 years ago from a free pattern found through Ravelry. It’s made from 10 squares, which I finished and assembled on the go. And then I got stuck on the border.…

    Janne’s ripple blanket: Ta-dah!

    I’ve finished it for a while now, but I wanted to wait to show it here until I had given it to its recipient. I made this ripple as a special request by my god-daughter and Sunday I gave it to her on her birthday party. I can’t believe she’s 5 already! I had been tempted a couple of times…

    Dolphin madness

    This fall break, my brother and his girlfriend wanted to go to London for the weekend. That’s not easy with two small children, so I agreed to stay in Belgium with my god-daughter. The baby went to London too as she still needed to be breastfed ;). Staying indoors with a two-year-old for a whole weekend wasn’t recommended by my…

    Princess dress

    The second Christmas present that I finished was the gift for my littlest niece, Emma. Emma also was the lucky recipient of the rainbow hearts-blanket, but for this gift I wanted to make something wearable: a dress. On Ravelry my eye fell on this project by Gabeycakes. And the best bit was that the pattern for this dress turned out…

    The First Christmas present

    My first hand-made gift this Christmas that exchanged owners was the one I made for my godmother (aka meetje). A long while ago I had purchased the yarn for the project I wanted to make for her. The yarn was Drops Fabel in the colour 677 green/turquoise. The plan was to make a shawl out of three skeins of this…

    Second knitting project

    This was meant to be my first knitting project, but thanks to my brother this became the second instead. 485 rows and 8 colours in a random stripe-pattern became a scarf of 1m60. The pattern by the purl bee was meant for a cowl, but when I started it I wanted a regular scarf. But now that my project was…

    First knitting FO is a fact!

    My very first knitting project is finished! And typically for me, it is not the first project I started. Nope, not the striped scarf is finished, but the ribbelscarf for my brother is. The picture has been taken at 5 o’clock on Tuesday morning, so it’s not the best quality. I just really wanted to deliver the shawl that day,…

    Once upon a time…

    …there were three skeins of Alpaca. Three beautiful, soft skeins of Alpaca, each in an even more beautiful colour. A rust coloured skein a blue coloured skein and a purple coloured skein These three skeins of Alpaca were bought a long time ago in a sale. They weren’t bought for a particular reason. No, no reason but the fact they…
