Yes, these are pair of leggings.No, they do not fit.Does this make me sad? No, because I never planned to wear them. Now after I have confused you completely, I will lift the veil of ignorance.

Last Monday I showed you the shiny side of crafting. I presented myself well behaved in proper clothes which I made for my garment-collection.

How to unmask an alien with knitting

If you are an avid watcher of science fiction or horror movies you are aware of the very real possibility of body snatchers, clones, aliens, or evil twins living in direct vicinity. Beings who are known for having dangerous attitudes regarding human body parts. Beings who may want to transform first your neighborhood, then your […]

I saw the light and this light illuminated several unfinished sweaters, cardigans and vests distributed all over the living room and my studio. Some with missing buttons, others with their yarn ends peeping through the stitches and some still in pieces waiting for me to sew them up. And know what: I have finished them […]
