The most practical knitting and crochet cases
18. November 2019

I am a squirrel. I have so many needles and hooks and stitch markers and stoppers and and and and. Like a good squirrel I hide them in our whole flat: under cushions in the living room, on my desk, next to my sewing machine (which is not so weird or?) but also on a […]

A Million Dollar Crochet-Bunting
30. July 2019

This is it! I am famous!!! I will appear on TV and earn billions. What!!??? You don’t believe me?! Than read on… (if you are only interested in the progression of my crochet bunting, then hop to the 6th paragraph.) Over the last weeks a good friend of mine worked at a film set as […]

Crocheting a Frankencoinster
18. June 2019
