How to sew in yarn-ends and “wintering”
30. November 2021

This post is about sewing in yarn-ends in knitting, but because I rant about a lot of other things beforehand, you will only notice this at the last paragraphs 😀 Last week I wrote about my Fibre mood Leona addiction. I told you that I already made two of these comfy sweaters and that I […]

How negative thoughts destroy creativity
16. November 2021

Word of warning: this is a post about me sometimes having pretty negative thoughts while working creatively. If you need something lighter today, please skip this post. There is a lot of darkness inside of me. You read my (hopefully) funny text, see me laugh during our #needleworkmonday video chats, but this is only the […]

Just back from a City Tour to Leipzig, our bathroom full of stinky clothes which are soaked in museum sweat I notice we have a competition running in the Needleworkmonday community on Hive: writing about freeneedling. Perfect opportunity for me to scream in capital letters „NOOOOOOO“ because I love this idea and had no time […]

Remember how I whined about my impaired sense of choosing fitting colors in yarn and fabric to create a wearable handmade wardrobe?

The Praise of Raglan Knitting
22. December 2020

A fair warning at the beginning: if you read this and can knit, crochet or sew, you will perhaps immediately start a new project with raglan sleeves 😀 Some people relax with a good book, some use a stiff drink, some do yoga or go for a walk. Me, I do raglan 😀 Knitting or […]

My blue Monday knitting project
8. December 2020

I do not want to break the Monday spell, but I really do not have a lot to show you right now, as I am mostly working for the exhibition and if I don’t paint I work plan on Christmas gifts which I cannot show you here because my loved ones read my blog. So, […]

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

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 […]
