    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 E. She 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…

    Kaleidoscoop TADAAA!

    Thanks to the awful weather (Not that I’m happy about that. What kind of summer is this?) I managed to finish my kaleidoscope blanket already! Only a couple of days ago I finished joining all the squares. I hadn’t even started with the border. But once I knew what I wanted, the border crocheted super fast. Taking pictures of the…

    Ta-daaaa: My Granny Stripe β€œAcross the Rainbow Bridge”

    Yes! Finally finished! My excruciatingly beautiful (if I do say so myself) Granny Stripe! πŸ˜€ I named him Across the Rainbow Bridge, a reference to a song by Areon: Almost a year I crocheted on this. Of course, not continuously, but still, almost a year. I’m soooooo happy a persevered and finished it. And he turned out so so beautiful!…

    Blub blub blub

    After finishing the ripple blanket and the cerulean half granny square, I still had some scraps of the wool left. So, to stay in the sea/ocean theme, I crocheted this amigurumi fish. This is a very easy pattern to crochet. It’s freely available from this blog here. No sewing is required for this fish, as the fins are crocheted by…
