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 »


With all my posts on whether or not I should make the Moana dress in Catania, you would forget that I only recently made a large purchase for a number of other plans. And in the mean time I’ve made a start with one of these plans.     I saw this dress for the first Lees meer »


That I can be pretty stubborn sometimes might be something you’ve picked up on already. I ask a question here, a couple of people reply this and then I still decide to do that. Yes, sometimes I have to see before I believe 😉 So indeed, I have already started knitting the Moana dress in Lees meer »

The Queue experiment

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 »

Hot hot hot!!

Man, it’s way too HOT here. Too hot to do anything. Personally, I’m not good with this kind of heat (i.e. 30-35 °C). I feel so lethargic and my arms and legs weigh like lead. So there wasn’t much action around here this weekend. BUT I did make a decision about the patchwork blanket. To Lees meer »

Patchwork blanket

Again I let myself get tempted to start something new, even though I had planned to first finish some of my WIPs. But be honest, would you be able to resist this?      Isn’t it gorgeous? And such beautiful colours. I for one couldn’t resist and dived in my stash. For a while now I Lees meer »
