Two steps forward, one step backwards
22. June 2021

Searching for the perfect yarn I shortly pondered if I should change the proverb into “two steps backwards and one step forward”, because I got near to nothing done this week (on the crafting side). You remember I was so excited about the hexagon crochet pattern I saw on Instagram and about my own design […]

The true power of Needlework
15. June 2021

The true power of Needlework – calming down with Lisette blouse and Mezzo cardigan Last Monday we had a much-needed conversation about support and connection in the @needleworkmonday community and the respond to @crosheille’s wonderful post was overwhelmingly positive and understanding. We all planned to connect more with each other and to shift the focus […]

Dearing to wear Unfinished – a crochet shawl
24. November 2020

Its Monday morning and after the fabulous Barbie contest I am still in a glow about all the creativity and skill in this community. But what’s going on with me? No Barbie clothes, no finished slipover…. Do I have nothing to show you? This would be a horrible situation. So, I took heart, sat down […]

I mostly do although my […]

One shawl is not enough
4. February 2020

Last week I asked for your opinion which yarn I should use to crochet a granny square shawl and sorry, but not sorry, you were not of great help. I thought it’s always good to start a post with insulting the audience, especially when you are German and would love to use the German word […]

Non-existent yarn shops and a Christmas market
17. December 2019

What a day… I was prepared like a pro. Backpack, several bags, my current knitting project, an apple and a water bottle – what could possibly go wrong?
Read on my #steemit or #Wordpress blog about me on the Christmas market, fighting the masses in search of a yarn store….

The most practical knitting and crochet cases
18. November 2019

I am a squirrel. I have so many needles and hooks and stitch markers and stoppers and and and and. Like a good squirrel I hide them in our whole flat: under cushions in the living room, on my desk, next to my sewing machine (which is not so weird or?) but also on a […]
