Made another security blanket

I’ve been neglecting this place again, haven’t I? These last two weeks were a bit *meh*. I had to briefly go to Finland again for work and once I got back I wasn’t feeling 100%. But I never feel sick enough to justify to myself to stay home and I also don’t easily go to Lees meer »

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 Lees meer »

Almost two years later

In a previous message I mentioned I was thinking about starting a new crochet project, but instead I picked up an old unfinished project! This bolero was started over 2 years ago from a free pattern found through Ravelry. It’s made from 10 squares, which I finished and assembled on the go. And then I Lees meer »

Janne’s ripple blanket: Ta-dah!

I’ve finished it for a while now, but I wanted to wait to show it here until I had given it to its recipient. I made this ripple as a special request by my god-daughter and Sunday I gave it to her on her birthday party. I can’t believe she’s 5 already! I had been Lees meer »

Princess dress

The second Christmas present that I finished was the gift for my littlest niece, Emma. Emma 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 Lees meer »

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 Lees meer »

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 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 »
