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

The time has come… I feel I have not shared enough free patterns. I must compete with @cryptocariad‘s clever tip of the free knitting magazine Knitty, @marblely‘s wonderful find of expression fiber arts or with @muscara explaining the pattern base of Drops. In my untiring attempt to be admired and loved by absolutely everyone serve […]

I am an attention seeker. I want fame and honour. An applauding audience at every step I make. I want to be seen in my glorious beauty (by now you perhaps notice the irony).

But the biggest horrors of all Lovecraft probably never […]

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 […]
