Me Made May 2019
15. May 2019

It’s May. The sun is shining, birds chirping happily in the blooming trees. Bees are hunting for the best flower and this – my friends – is me: flowered out in handmade garments 😅. It is the first time I participate on MeMadeMay. This initiative was founded by Zoe from So, Zo… What do you […]

The bloody scrubbies
19. March 2019

Stress testing sustainable crochet scrubbies Look I crocheted some fossils. These are face scrubby fossils. They are made from organic sea shell which will purify your face by cutting away everything that’s reaches more than 2 mm over your skin. Like your nose or your eyelids… This purification will draw a bit of blood which […]

Tidying up my knitting
11. February 2019

Tiding up my knitting without Marie Kondo Last week I whined about my second sock… and I think this whining got on my own nerves: I could no longer listen my own inner voice, it was too annoying. Solution: I started the second coral sock. I am still on the leg, but it is growing […]

Be fast: Free knitting patterns for Christmas
11. December 2018

The time has come… I feel I have not shared enough free patterns.

In my untiring attempt to be admired and loved by absolutely everyone serve […]

No pedestrian nor driver should pass me without admiring my outfit (yes @cryptocariad I remember your comment ) and with these […]

Peace is hurting, the loss is hurting, you are frightening me, everything is frightening me. There is loss in every ancient stone, […]

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 […]
