Happy Halloween!

Have you ever run into a spiderweb? It’s an icky feeling, that’s why nobody wants to be covered in them. Except me on this fine spooky day! It’s All Hallow’s Eve, the creepiest holiday of them all, and although I don’t celebrate it I jumped at the occasion to finally sew something with this spiderweb…

A Woolen Treasure Hunt

When we cleaned out my Grandma’s house after her death, I immediately called dibs on her yarn stash. (Then again, nobody else in my family is a knitter, so it was quite obvious that it’d go to me.) We packed it in boxes that we moved in my room at my Dad’s house, and that…

Did I mention that I love hoods?

After I made my account on Ravelry, I spent countless hours browsing through patterns. (You shouldn’t do that at work. Really. It was embarrassing when my boss caught me, but she was really cool about it and asked me about knitting.) As a result, most of the patterns in my queue were added in 2009.…

Prepared for 100% Cosiness

I’m a creature of habit. If something works, why do it differently? My anxiety issues certainly don’t help here either. (Curiously enough, I love going to foreign countries on my own even though I don’t speak their language. Human beings are complicated, I guess.) But I’ve learnt over the last couple of years that sometimes…
