My second box of shame
13. October 2020

It’s this time of the year, the one moment of clarity, my awakening to the light, the epiphany of introspection… were I notice that I have roughly a million wip’s spread out through our flat. There are these two (yes, two) boxes of shame in our living room. And maybe the content of these boxes […]

When knitting less is a good sign…
5. May 2020

Often, I hear form friends admiring words about the huge amount of needlework I do, how much I can knit, crochet or sew. And although I know these words are genuine prise or even a bit of envy of my possibility (free time) to follow my passion, there is a drop of sadness hidden for […]

Free sewing, knitting and crochet patterns
17. March 2020

Free sewing, knitting and crochet patterns to soothe you in times of covid-19 You all know I lost my father and a good friend last year and I now fear intensely for my mother, who is at risk because of her age. I am sure you all have loved ones (or perhaps yourself) who need […]

Read on my #steemit or #Wordpress blog about me on the Christmas market, fighting the masses in search of a yarn store….

I knitted a wrap cardigan …
10. December 2019

The sewing hotline has closed because of Christmas overwork, Silvi had a very successful exhibition this weekend (so I did not dare to force her into taking photos), my parents in law visited and I made a short dance film (perhaps I can interest you? It’s a melancholic performance about the sea and loosing ones […]

Knitting a cowl in three countries
4. November 2019

Last week I told you of my new love Maastricht a wonderful town I visited per chance because the weather during our short vacation was gruesome. Our original travel destination was Aachen, which by the way is also amazing, but this will be a topic for another post. One reason we have chosen Aachen was, […]
