    Instagram & WIPs

    This summer my phone died. It wasn’t completely unexpected, but I had hoped it would last until the release of the new IPhone. I had set my mind on the IPhone 5S and I hoped the release of the new model would bring down the price. Unfortunately, I do not have such luck and thus needed to buy a new…

    Gus the knight

    One of my colleagues became mom to a little boy named Gus last November. The announcement featured this tough-looking knight. So when I got to test a pattern for a knight doll for Annelies from Vicarno , I already knew to whom I was going to give my knight. I’ve finished my doll a while back, but I was not…

    Movie review: La Belle et la Bête (2014)

    That I am a huge fan of the fairytale Beauty and the Beast, you might already have gathered? It was the very first Disney film that I saw in the theatre and it is still today my favourite Disney film ever. No matter which book that is said to have been inspired by this tale, I must and shall read…

    Today’s my birthday. And I’m not just saying this to get birthday-wishes, but because I saw this on Google this morning: And I though, “Hey, what a coincidence. What would be the meaning of these cakes? A famous birthday?” And then I scrolled over the image and saw this: And yeah, that does creep me out a little. Yes, I…

    It’s already over

    The lion’s share of my vacation has already passed by. But a glorious vacation it was! My goddaughter’s sleepover and planned visit to an amusement park was a rounding success. Definitely worth repeating! Then followed the travelling portion of my vacation. My parents were staying with the caravan in Saint Rémy de Provence for a couple of weeks. Since I…

    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…

    July book haul

    I do most of my reading on my e-reader nowadays. I bought it almost 3 years ago and since then it has claimed its place in my purse. But that doesn’t mean that I no longer buy paper books. I adore buying books, just as much as I adore buying yarn! This month alone I already bought more books than…
