The cutting of the dreadful dress
22. August 2018

I did it! And no, I am not Britney Spears and shaved my head or played with my lover’s emotions, which is the context of her song as I learned while googling for this post… Perhaps I should have been clearer and written ‘Ups I did it again’ but this would have been a lie. […]

Finally … may I present you the little No Grey Mouse baby cardigan? An easy top-down crochet pattern. Do you remember that I showed you a photo of this little Baby cardigan and asked if you would like the pattern and you said yes? As I gifted this cardigan to a good friend I had […]

How to knit or crochet a top-down cardigan
17. July 2018

In this third part of my presentation (and hopefully explanation) of various methods to knit or crochet a cardigan we reached my favourite technique: working top-down. You may ask why I love this method so much and I could tell you it’s due to me being lazy and impatient but most likely it is due […]

Last Monday on steemit I promised you a pattern, the pattern of a top-down crocheted baby jacket.

The lights are flickering, thunder rolls and the faint smell of sulphur flows through the air. A young and unearthly beautiful red-haired woman leans over a dissecting table. Sweat pearls down her milk-coloured soft skin and creases of concentration appear between her brows. Her slender hands are holding a vicious looking hook which digs deep […]

My crafting walk of shame
26. March 2018

Today I will not spoil you with beautiful photos of finished sweaters or humorous explanations of knitting stitches – no today is my day of shame: I am the queen of unfinished objects (and maybe I watched to much GOT) Not only do I really dislike knitting or crochet for other people, I also do […]

How to dye wool – the cheapest version
31. July 2017

I am scared silly to make mistakes (beware, I make them nevertheless). Right now, it would be a big mistake to waste money. On the other hand, although I have this streak of perfectionism, I am curious and like to experiment. And for weeks I want to work with this beautiful and crazy expensive hand […]
