    On the go #10

    While reading initially appealed less to me in January, the creative itch for once persisted well after the Christmas making frenzy, resulting in me starting a couple of new things or continuing with the old. At Christmas the subject of relaxation activities came up. You probably know what I mean: puzzles, coloring books for adults, diamond painting, etc. My niece…

    Sentimental Laura Vest

    At the beginning of January I finished the Laura vest for fellow student C.. Or rather, a combination of the fact that sewing classes started again after the Christmas holidays and I could no longer postpone it and a very big prayer gave me the courage to finish this sentimental piece. This project had previously been started by C.’s mother…

    Day of the week sweater vest

    A while ago I showed that I had let myself go again and, despite the fact that I can almost start a shop at home, I had still bought a load of new skeins of yarn. I also let you know that I had a very specific plan in mind for one third of the skeins, for which I had…

    Granny Square Vest

    Finally! FI.NAL.LY! There’s nothing like gift giving season to make me jump into action and finish projects I’ve been working on for too long! The story of this vest started in the early spring of 2023, when I spotted this model in the Terre Bleue window. I immediately felt the urge to start crocheting again and I started planning diligently.…

    Flaxosaurus

    In my posts about my projects on the go, I regularly talked about a knitting project that I didn’t want to reveal too much about yet. But now I’m going to reveal everything! Based on the photos I shared, you could probably deduce that I had knitted two green sweaters. The (free) pattern I used for this is Flax by…

    On the go #8

    Slowly, a little too slowly for my liking, autumn is creeping into the land. Not so much the weather, but rather the shops radiate this. The mannequins are given warmer autumn fashion, coziness with candles and plaids is promoted and, for those stores that sell them, more and more woolen items are becoming available. I always enjoy looking at the…

    On the go #7

    I’m one of those bloggers who isn’t really good at writing about unfinished things. I always wait to write about something when I’ve finished it and go “LOOK WHAT I MADE!”. However, I always enjoy reading posts about ongoing projects, because I like to see projects grow and evolve. Plus, I think if I talked more about the things I’m…

    My Christmas sweater

    After everything I made for Christmas to give away, finally something I made for myself! The Julgran sweater* by Andi Satterlund has been on my wishlist to make since its publication in 2017. Five years later and I finally got around to it! * Unfortunately Andi decided to close her shop at the end of 2022, so this pattern can…

    Harry Potter Headbands

    They’re all the rage these days, headbands. I saw them appearing everywhere and I had thought several times that this would be a fun craft project. In the meantime I had made the Gryffindor beanies and also wanted to do something with the other leftovers from the Harry Potter-scarves, but hats suddenly didn’t really appeal to me that much anymore.…

    Fox beanies

    In between all the Harry Potter projects I made on my Addi, I wanted to revisit the little fox beanie pattern I had made when I first got my machine for practice and as a tension experiment. This time I wanted to make the beanie in real foxy colours. For one I used orange with beige, for another orange and…
