    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…

    Gryffindor beanies

    After finishing the Harry Potter scarves on my Addi, I still had some of the used yarn left over and an itch in my fingers to continue working on the machine. And what goes better with scarves than hats? So I started experimenting with configurations of yarn stripes, first with the Gryffindor leftovers. Since I didn’t have enough left over…

    Harry Potter scarves on the Addi Express

    When I told you about my reason for buying a knitting mill, then this was my justification: Harry Potter scarves. For years I have been collecting wool with the intention of making Harry Potter scarves. It was mainly a search for the perfect colours according to my eyes. It actually started ridiculously many years ago when I first saw the…

My most productive months of the year, when I actually finish crafts, are usually November and December. This year I kept track: in 2022 I made…

    Winter Garden Sweater

    Even before I bought the knitting-mill, I had again caught the knitting bug. It all started with the blankets I made earlier in the year and the fact that a number of seamstresses I follow on YouTube suddenly started knitting. This reminded me that I still had so many cute sweater patterns that I wanted to make for myself one…

    I bought a knitting mill!

    As the title says, I bought a knitting mill. Somewhere at the beginning of November already, and I’ve played with it quite a bit since then, so it’s high time to show it here too! First and foremost, what is a knitting mill? Ewel, you undoubtedly know a knitting nancy? That is a wooden doll or mushroom with around 4…

    Rule of thumb

    The very first wearable item I ever made were crocheted fingerless mittens. Since then I crochet at least one pair of them almost every year. Over the years I have developed my own method of making them and have collected a lot of notes from each new pair I make, tweaking and improving my pattern a bit each time. Granted,…

    Hot off the knitting needle

    Ever since I knitted my first baby blanket, the itch to knit has been slowly coming back to me. To harness that urge, I decided to dig up some more old stash yarn and knit it up in the most basic pattern that I could find that wasn’t just rib stitch. And that’s how I stumbled on the Sliding is…
