Comet CAL #1

Last Wednesday marked the beginning of the CAL for Comet the Unicorn by Projectarian. All those who purchased the pattern will now be receiving a part of the pattern every week until December 12th. After I purchased the pattern, I started digging in my yarn stash. I refused to buy new yarn, since I have Lees meer »

Unicorn CAL

The other day, when I clicked open the Pinterest-app on my phone, this image immediatly jumped out to me. Of course, I immediatly clicked through and arrived on the blog of Jessie van In, a.k.a. Projectarian. This sweet unicorn is a pattern she designed based on her years of experience of crocheting her Nomadic Galaxy Lees meer »

Working on #4

My last update on my WIPS already dates back to last November ! So it’s high time to give you an update, since my hands have not been idle!     The sweater that I started at the end of last year has grown a bit further. I do not work on it all that much, Lees meer »

On the needle

Hmm, I’m not so good at blogging about my current projects. At the moment I’m working on 3 knits and am swatching for a 4th. Seems I’m good at blogging about all my doubts before starting a project, but keeping you up to date on the knitting or crochet process is a weak point. So Lees meer »

The Queue experiment

After my last yarn splurge resulting into 32 new skeins for my already substantial stash, I started working with the QUEUE option on Ravelry. I walked through my stash, trying to link each skein to a pattern I could and want to make with it, hoping I could reduce that stash. While looking for the Lees meer »

Out of sheer frustration

I’m still unsuccesful with the stipey shawl. I just can’t get the edges right. I’m done wanting perfection. I would just really like to have both sides even, I don’t even care if it still looks ugly. I’m now aiming for uniform ugliness. *cough* But even that is out of my reach 🙁 . Out Lees meer »

Fumbling

For a project that seemed quite simple, I’m having quite some issues with these Dream Stripes. For one, this yarn proofs to be difficult to work with. I’ve never knitted with such thin yarn before and I’m having difficulties making out my stitches. Secondly, my edges for this project are a disaster. They just don’t Lees meer »
