    Athena jumper

    After I had finished another Bulle, I took a break from knitting or crocheting. Not only was the summer very busy, but also extremely hot, so I did not really feel like doing anything with yarn. However, then around the end of July, my hands started itching again. That’s how I rediscovered a batch of cotton yarn I had bought…

    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.

    Birthday presents

    For birthday gifts I often opt to make something myself. And for my godchild I like to do that little bit extra. I started with a simple sewn skirt, that I made in the last sewing class of the school year.    Next I made a requested dress: a Bulle in duck egg blue and purple.    But my actual…

    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 Pony’s. Each time she posted…

    Left-over skirts

    When I had finished my June dress, I still had a fair amount of the purple fabric left. I didn’t have to think long about what I wanted to make with that: skirts! I hoped I would have enough to make a little skirt for each of my four nieces and I did! For the youngest I did have to…

    Cropped cardigan for June dress

    My outfit for my niece’s wedding was not yet complete simply by finishing the dress. No, I needed a cardigan to go with it. I wanted the cardigan to be short, so it kept showing of my waist and the pleats in the skirt. I also wanted a V-shaped neckline to mirror the back of the skirt. Additionally, I also…

    Weasley sweater for Mini

    Last Saturday I went on maternity visit at Evelien’s. At the beginning of February, she gave birth to her second baby, a boy named Lucas – code name Mini. I already knew it was going to be a boy, which gave me pause to figure out what to make. For her little girl, over a year ago, I made a…

    Speedy Bulle

    Time ran away with me again and suddenly there were only 2 weeks left before A’s birthday party and I still needed to start on her present. Doh! Like I said previously, the plan was to make her another Bulle, since she loves wearing her pink one. It’s not such a difficult pattern, but to knit it in only a…
