Speaking about tension squares and my gargantuan urbanite cardigan. It’s #needleworkmonday and I am not finished with my Urbanite Cardigan. Instead of wallowing about my snail-like speed, I will use this unfinished crochet cardigan to reflect about tension. Do you make a tension square before you start a new project? I mostly do although my […]
Last week I asked for your opinion which yarn I should use to crochet a granny square shawl and sorry, but not sorry, you were not of great help. I thought it’s always good to start a post with insulting the audience, especially when you are German and would love to use the German word […]

I am afraid… I am afraid that you will notice that I am an imposter, that I am barely able to hold a hook… Because I crocheted a Frankencoinster. Last week I tried myself at this alleged „relaxing“ woven mandala. And it relaxed me so intensely that I needed some sweet balm tee and many […]
