Knitting with hot needles – ahem headaches
3. November 2020

In German there is this saying, “knitted with hot needles” (mit heißen Nadeln gestrickt) which means you did a project hasted and sloppy. And this is what I did with my knitted slipover. Today, dear readers you will get another whining post, as I have headaches since Thursday and the slipover fits strangely. I some […]

Working with a deadline in fibre art
27. October 2020

It is Monday and I do not know what to write. And its not because of lack of topics, no it is the overwhelming mass of projects :-DDD Last Monday I told you about the scholarship I got granted for an art project and since then I am frenetically running between my yarn boxes, my […]

I need your help dear needleworkes
20. October 2020

I am not sure if all of you know that I besides knitting, crocheting or sewing like crazy make art for a living. And I am extremely happy to announce that I got admitted for an art-scholarship. Now you are perhaps musing why I am addressing you on #needleworkmonday, but bear with me, there is […]

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 […]

Sometimes things are really simple, but your over complicated thinking process leads you away from the solution. Far away, like into a deep forest were wild boars try to eat your toes and squirrels throw nuts at your head. While I still admired moss and leaves and tree-trunks, my fibre friend @muscara already found the […]

The unloved sweater
21. January 2020

Not much words and knitting this Monday… I have migraines for days and was not very successful in finishing anything. It’s not only the misbehaving head, also that I will have a group exhibition on February the 8th and I am still working on some paintings. One fits so well into the #needleworkmonday that I […]
