Mysterious Mistakes in Knitted Cardigan
27. April 2021

Do you believe me when I tell you I do not want to write about mistakes I make while crafting? Again…? While I woke up today, I envisioned this wonderful post about a cardigan I knitted. It is a pattern from this lovely book: I started the cardigan a long time ago, but for some […]

The cute but impractical knitted coat
16. March 2021

Since some weeks we are having weather which promises spring on one day and winter the next (its called April weather in Germany, and it seems nobody likes April… :-D).

22. December 2020

It’s a melancholic performance about the sea and loosing ones […]
