Toaster Sweater Mania
9. October 2018

No, these three words in the title are not random. They have a deeper meaning. They proof that I can sew a sweater that I can sew a sweater in three attempts that Sew House Seven makes wonderful patterns. Wow, I got the sentence finished, this was tough 😅   As always, my first passage […]

Last week I asked for your advice regarding my grey Miette cardigan  from Andi Satterlund (1). And you lovingly helped me with your button- and sleeve-wisdom. So, I wanted to let you know, I (mostly) followed your hints. Today I present you my finished Miette cardigan. I started with the neckline update: I worked two […]

The unexcited knitting progress post
4. September 2018

Nothing exciting on the knitting front to announce… My green and very tight vintage sweater is finished and waiting for someone who will sew in the last yarn ends. The yellow sweater is currently sleeping in a box, because the ‘in-the-round-knitting’ hurts my fingers … no idea why. I hope this will go away, so […]

Two cropped sweaters for fall
14. August 2018

Still not ready with nothing… My mother’s dress is waiting to be cut and sewn, and my cropped pullover is also not finished. But I can whitewash explain my slow progress. With the dress you perhaps guessed already right: I am frightened to destroy it. As the warm weather is slowly ending, I must hurry […]

The summer slump sewing post
8. August 2018

It is soooooo hot here! I mentioned it before in about 100 comments on my steemit blog … and I repeat: it is super and unnaturally hot. Tomorrow we await 39 degrees. This temperature is completely new to me. I sweat on my hands while knitting – honestly :-DDD But the weather will not stop […]

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. And guess what, I do not find my notes anymore (that’s a lie: I found my notes, but they are horrendous incomplete and as if this wasn’t embarrassing enough, I cannot find my photos of the finished jacket. […]

Knitting a breast enlargement ;-)
30. April 2018

Knitting a top-down sweater – again. I could’t resist to cast on… I tried and tried: like putting the new yarn away and forbidding myself to research ravelry – but to no avail. Although I have some project resting in the already mentioned box, I casted on for a new sweater. To be honest I […]
