    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…

    Reading Journal November

    As in November, I used a piece of paper I found in a bag in the attic for my reading log for December. That piece of paper actually became the entire inspiration for the theme. The paper in question is the green paper with golden dots. A rather Christmassy whole, without pushing it too far. I thought it was ideal…

    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…

    Genre blanket: August

    Finally some more progress in my genre blanket of 2022! Since we are already quite far into the first month of 2023, I have put the idea of making another bookish blanket in the closet this year. I thought about it for a while, because it really is a very cool concept with surprising results. But since I still have…

    From Elsa to Crystal

    Christmas has been over for a while and the Christmas presents have all been unwrapped, so time to show them here! Like every year, I make a large part of my Christmas presents myself. 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…

    Read in December 2022

    December started out as a difficult reading month. In theory this should be one of the coziest reading months of the year, with blankets and fairy lights, but in practice my mind was busy with so many other things that I had trouble keeping my attention. Once I got into a book and got along with the introduction of the…

    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…
